The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) In Practice-Oriented Artificial Intelligence is training the next generation of AI innovators, equipping them with the expertise and skills to co-design and build practice-oriented AI systems for science and research domains of key national importance.

Practice-oriented AI aims to bridge the gap between complex problem domains and state-of-the-art AI algorithms and techniques. Our innovative, cohort-based 4-year training programme will deliver highly-trained PhD graduates with the transferable skills and deep AI expertise to solve societally important problems in a variety of domains in responsible ways.

If this appeals to you please browse these pages to get a feel of the training programme we offer, what kind of applicants we are looking for, and how to apply.

AI is not a hammer looking for nails, but a diverse and versatile toolbox for solving highly complex problems in human-compatible ways. Doing this effectively means starting from the problem and reasoning backwards to design a solution, which is what practice-oriented AI is all about.
