Turing-UoM Sandpit: AI-Assisted Real-Time Decision Making
|Dates:||3 October 2022 - 4 October 2022|
|Times:||14:00 - 16:00|
|What is it:||Workshop|
|Who is it for:||University staff, External researchers|
The 'AI-Assisted Real-Time Decision Making' sandpit is a two-day online event scheduled to take place from 14.00 to 16.00 on Mon 3 and Tues 4 October. Please note that this is one event across two days and participants are expected to attend on both days.
Our sandpit events bring together researchers, public, private and third sector participants around a common theme. We welcome participants from all over the world and from any relevant industry and discipline. We ask participants for input before the event, which allows us to create sub-theme groups to better nurture discussions during the sandpit event that may lead to proposals.
Over the two days of the event and a short period following the event, participants will develop proposals and our review panel will award funding for a number of short feasibility studies (estimated around £10k per successful proposal).
Appropriate expenditure for these short projects would usually be researcher time and possibly some necessary consumables. The ultimate aim is for interdisciplinary group to devise and carry out short projects that will enable larger bids for further funding on the same topic.
Please note: the final end date for expenditure on these projects will be 31 March 2022. We advise that you bear this in mind from an early stage, especially when considering how projects will be resourced.
Please also note that due to the nature of this funding, each funded project must be led by a researcher from The University of Manchester and while we encourage external collaboration, the funding cannot be transferred directly to an external organisation.
Intellectual Property rights will be subject to terms and conditions as agreed between the Alan Turing Institute and The University of Manchester.
Please feel free to share this invitation with suitable collaborators.
Through our partnership with the Alan Turing Institute, The University of Manchester’s Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (IDSAI) has hosted a number of ‘sandpit’ events in 2021 and 2022.
IDSAI is one of The University of Manchester's Digital Futures network themes.
