Digital is everywhere, digital touches everything we think or do. Digital technologies will reshape and recode our lives. Here at UWE Bristol we’re exploring everything from big data and machine learning to cyber security, from digital ethics to deep fakes and beyond. Transforming lives and the world we live in.
Our research strengths include:
- robotics, artificial intelligence and advanced engineering
- industrial digitalisation, high-value design and next generation services
- future mobile communications, ubiquitous computing, data science and cybersecurity.
From helping to build public trust in Artificial Intelligence (AI), to ensuring ethics are factored into the digital health technologies of the future, UWE Bristol is leading the charge for ethical robots.
