Research at LIDA

Research at LIDA

We conduct inter-disciplinary and impact-oriented research that address regional, national and global challenges, by applying cutting-edge data science, machine learning and AI to real-world problems.

Our portfolio of data analytics research and innovation projects is worth over £60 million, with multi-disciplinary communities of over 280 researchers engaged across different programmes and specialist interest areas.

LIDA’s research communities are currently focused on three main challenge areas that require interdisciplinary working: Societies, Health and Environment.

Supporting these communities are four cross cutting programmes of work that focus on exploiting and developing our capabilities and capacity within four key methodological data analytics areas ; Statistical Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and Immersive Technologies, underpinned by technical Infrastructure and expertise.
