Likewise a revolution in political science is taking place where the internet, social media and real time electronic monitoring has brought about increased mobilisation of political movements. In addition the generation of huge amounts of data from such processes presents on the one hand opportunities to analyse and indeed predict political volatility, and on the other ethical and technical challenges which will be explored by two of the foremost philosophers and political scientists. The Alan Turing Institute is the UK's National Institute for Data Science. The Institute’s mission is to: undertake data science research at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, statistics and systems engineering; provide technically informed advice to policy makers on the wider implications of algorithms; enable researchers from industry and academia to work together to undertake research with practical applications; and act as a magnet for leaders in academia and industry from around the world to engage with the UK in data science and its applications. The Institute is headquartered at The British Library, at the heart of London’s knowledge quarter, and brings together leaders in advanced mathematics and computing science from the five founding universities and other partners. Its work is expected to encompass a wide range of scientific disciplines and be relevant to a large number of business sectors. For more information, please visit: https://turing.ac.uk
