With the move to working from home resulting from COVID-19, and much uncertainty in the higher education sector, the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Safe and Trusted Artificial Intelligence has moved online. The Centre continues to offer student training activities and cohort engagement events using virtual platforms in supporting our students to become experts in safe & trusted AI.
In addition to the expected one-to-one supervision meetings, our current students are meeting online, working on an industry-led group project, participating in the regular journal club, attending research seminars and, in addition, joining more informal events like virtual coffee catch-ups. We believe that this collegiate dimension to doctoral research is essential, reflects our strong sense of community, and is something we will ensure is part of our next cohort’s experience from the start of their time with us in Autumn 2020.
The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Safe and Trusted Artificial Intelligence is led by a team of renowned experts from King’s College London and Imperial College London, experienced in delivering cross-institutional PhD supervision and training. We are delighted that we have been able to continue to offer our students a great CDT experience and to offer opportunities for research discussions and social gatherings while we are off-campus.
