We need to nurture diverse research environments to develop AI that is commercially successful and has a positive impact on lives across society.

Sussex AI’s approach to computer science crosses traditional discipline boundaries, spanning theoretical and applied research techniques. Combining knowledge and expertise from industry, public service and academia they are supporting PhD students to provide viable business solutions using cutting-edge technology, informed by psychology techniques and health & wellbeing focused design.

Working with organisations like CASM, students at Sussex AI are able to apply their research to real-world issues, using their findings to inform reports and decisions within industry.
