New materials have the potential to radically transform society. The role of this theme is to provide strategic leadership to a diverse and distributed community and to work across UKRI to champion investment in materials innovation and to enable novel technologies that combat societal challenges.
ASG is an integrated programme in artificial intelligence (AI) and data science. It is being delivered by The Alan Turing Institute and is designed to improve:
Algebra stems from the study of equations, their solutions and associated operations and symmetries, including group theory, representation theory and ring theory.
This research area looks at the development of novel techniques, or novel application of existing techniques, to analyse chemical or biological matter and systems, for example.
The study of antimatter physics by the production of atomic systems containing antiparticles.
The aim of this programme is to support and enable UK researchers to carry out unique research, in collaboration with colleagues around the world, to improve our understanding of antimicrobial resistance.
This research area explores the operational structure of a system and the software which abstracts a system’s hardware. It presents a precise interface to higher levels of software and applications.
The EPSRC AI and Robotics team has a key role engaging with UKRI colleagues, the research and innovation communities, and key organisations to continue to maintain and build the UK’s internationally leading position in AI and robotics research and innovation.
This research area focuses on the reproduction or surpassing of abilities (in computational systems) that would require intelligence if humans were to perform them.
Assistive technology research aims to restore human function and enable independence for older people, disabled people and those with long term conditions. Musculoskeletal biomechanics is the study of forces and their effects on the musculoskeletal system.
