Venue (The Alan Turing Institute)
The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science. Five universities – Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, University College London and Warwick – and the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences) created The Alan Turing Institute in 2015. The mission of The Alan Turing Institute is to make great leaps in data science research in order to change the world for the better. The Institute’s goals are to undertake world-class research in data science, apply its research to real-world problems, driving economic impact and societal good, lead the training of a new generation of data scientists, and shape the public conversation around data.
The Alan Turing Institute is based within the British Library (96 Euston Road, London, NW1 2DB), which is conveniently located right next to St. Pancras International and just a few minutes’ walk away from King’s Cross St. Pancras Underground. Midland Road runs parallel to St. Pancras, to the right of the British Library.
Upon entering the British Library, The Alan Turing Institute may be found on the first floor; proceed up the main staircase/escalator and at the top turn right, The Institute can then be found at the end of the walkway. There is very prominent signage on the first floor and it should not be hard to find it.
