The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Safe and Trusted AI welcomes its fourth cohort.  

This week, the CDT welcomed a new cohort of 14 students from across King’s and Imperial, all who share a passion for ensuring the safety and trustworthiness of AI.  

After a couple of years online, the CDT was thrilled to be able to welcome the students in person with an induction session covering an overview of the Centre and their year ahead. This was followed by a social on King’s rooftop terrace with a beautiful sunset, which was a breathtaking start to the year! 

One of the new students, Alex Rader, had this to say about joining the CDT, “I like the cohort-based nature of the programme. I look forward to participating in workshops and projects about safe AI together and building a community. Regularly meeting with other students in the field will also be valuable for gaining new perspectives and improving my research.” 

The CDT encourages collaboration and there will be plenty of opportunities in the year ahead for students to work closely together, such as in the hackathon, group projects and training activities.
