Scientific Discovery


Our adventurous and ambitious AI projects have a clear multi-disciplinary focus and draw upon and influence a range of disciplines and new interdisciplinary application areas. We categorise these as scientific discovery projects.  

Our grounding in diverse applications involves dialogue with many other disciplines for scientific discovery. In addition to health and autonomous systems, we have a variety of AI-driven scientific discovery projects in energy, transport, food sciences, humanities, demographics, physics, chemistry, and engineering.
