Academics from the Department of Informatics are conducting world-leading research with measurable impact: 1) an AI planning tool that makes drilling safer, faster, and more environmentally friendly, 2) the development of robotic therapy devices for the treatment of lower limb injuries, 3) pioneering 5G research that impacts global telecommunications industry and 4) research on provenance, a fundamental data governance technique that provides a reliable account of a system's actions and the data it altered.
A joint team of students from King’s College London and the University of Leeds will participate in July in RoboCup@Home, an international competition with the goal of developing autonomous intelligent robots able to assist people in their daily activities.
A team of KCL Informatics researchers launched a new project with Westminster City Council, the local government entity responsible for the Strand-Aldwych redevelopment. Together, we are creating a pilot for the Strand-Aldwych Data Springboard, an innovative data sharing initiative that will deliver innovative solutions with local data that benefit those who are part of or affected by this data, while also educating all these stakeholders about the benefits of data sharing.
Profs Maria Fox and Derek Long have built an AI planning tool for global energy company Schlumberger that makes drilling safer, faster and more environmentally friendly. The tool is proving a huge success – and is on its way to become a new global industry standard.
Dr Elizabeth Black, Reader in Artificial Intelligence at King’s Department of Informatics and Co-Director of the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Safe and Trusted Artificial Intelligence, has been appointed to the Advisory Group of the new [Energy Digitalisation Taskforce (EDiT)](https://es.catapult.org.uk/news/energy-digitalisation-taskforce-launches/). The taskforce will continue the Government’s focus on modernising the UK’s energy system to unlock flexibility and drive clean growth towards net zero emissions by 2050.
