Artificial Intelligence technology centre launched near Warrington


THE Daresbury-based STFC Hartree Centre, near Warrington, has become one of the first partners in the UK in a network of Artificial Intelligence technology centres.
Hartree – located within the Daresbury Laboratory complex – joins the universities of Reading and Edinburgh as a partner of American technology company NVIDIA’s UK operation – NVAITC
Designed to support ground breaking research in AI (artificial intelligence) and data science, the centre will work with universities and technology centres across the UK to help create new methods of using AI and machine learning for use in UK industries.
AI is one of the key capabilities of the Hartree Centre, which applies its accelerated computing technologies to industry challenges in businesses of all sizes, across various industry sectors – from healthcare, life sciences and chemistry to engineering and manufacturing.
Joining the NVAITC enhances the Hartree Centre’s ability to support industry and academic communities in adopting converged high performance computing and AI technologies that can significantly improve the productivity of people and processes within their organisation.
Alison Kennedy, director, STFC Hartree Centre, said: “Becoming an NVIDIA AI Technology Centre will help us to work with our industry and academic networks on more projects supporting the co-creation and adoption of AI solutions.
“With our internationally recognised expertise in data analytics and leading high performance computing platforms combined with our focus on innovation and industry impact, we’re ideally situated to help businesses realise benefits in productivity from novel technologies like AI.”
Located at STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory, at Sci-Tech Daresbury, the Hartree Centre’s collaboration with NVIDIA will have a specific focus on digital twinning, which is the detailed virtual representation of physical assets. This work will enable UK industry to develop new products and optimise their existing processes, boosting productivity and reducing time to market.
