About ART-AI

We bring together researchers from across the University to train the next generation of specialists with expertise in AI, its applications and its implications.

The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Accountable, Responsible and Transparent AI (ART-AI) will recruit and train at least 60 PhD students from diverse backgrounds, including existing experts in AI, but also from engineering, social science and policy backgrounds to help ensure that developments in AI, and decisions on how and when to use it or not, are informed and ethical.
