NOC News Round Up - 14 July 2017

NOC through to next round for Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Hub

Autosub Long Range

The NOC has been invited by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to prepare a full bid to establish a new research Hub to drive and accelerate the translation of fundamental science in robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems for use in extreme and challenging environments. The NOC submitted an expression of interest to create: The Aquarius Hub - Robotic Capability in Extreme Aquatic Environments, to EPSRC last month, which was assessed by an international panel of experts.

The Hubs form part of a programme to develop robotics and AI that can be deployed in extreme environments, that has been identified as a key area of the Government's Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF). The ISCF is a strategic element of the Government's Industrial Strategy that aims to ensure that the UK continues to be one of the best places in the world for research and innovation.
