Alan Turing Institute leads a distinguished list of AI labs

Five of the Top Ten

Vivek Kumar of has put together a list of what he says are the Top Ten companies of AI. Here’s a look at the top 10 AI Research Labs in the world that are leading the research and development in AI and related technologies.

The Alan Turing Institute

The Alan Turing Institute is the national institute for data science and artificial intelligence headquartered in the British Library, London. The institute was created as the national institute for data science in 2015. And in 2017, as a result of a government recommendation, it added AI. Comprised of 13 universities and the UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, the institute helps make the UK the best place in the world for data science and AI research, collaboration, and business. Recently, the Alan Turning Institute shifted its focus to exploring the complicated ethics in the use of AI algorithms and data analytics for predictive purposes by police forces.

Laboratory of Imaging, Vision and Artificial Intelligence (LIVIA)

LIVIA is a research group accredited by ÉTS which brings together several professors, associate members and graduate students. The laboratory’s scientific orientation revolves around the key foundations of large-scale processing, analysis and interpretation of images and videos. LIVIA’s R&D activities are based on six main conceptual axes and their main fields of application: (1) machine learning, (2) computer vision, (3) pattern recognition, (4) adaptive and intelligent systems, (5) information fusion, and (6) optimization of complex systems.

J.P. Morgan AI Research Lab

J.P. Morgan’s AI Research team is based in New York and present in key hubs worldwide. The goal of its AI Research program is to explore and advance cutting-edge research in the fields of AI and Machine Learning, also in related fields like Cryptography, to develop solutions that are most impactful to the firm’s clients and businesses. The firm’s AI Research team involves experts in various fields of AI. They pursue primary research in areas relative to its research pillars as well as concrete problems related to financial services.

Oxford Machine Learning Research Group

The Machine Learning Research Group at the University of Oxford comprises like-minded research groupings led by local faculty. It is a sub-group within Information Engineering in the Department of Engineering Science of Oxford University. This is one of the core groupings that make up the wider community of Oxford Machine Learning and have a particularly strong overlap with the Oxford-Man Institute of Quantitative Finance. The Oxford ML Research Group uses statistics to handle both information and uncertainty in a variety of research fields, including citizen science, biology, public health, autonomous intelligent systems, and animal husbandry.

ElkanIO Research Labs

ElkanIO Research Labs is an AI research lab based in Cochin, Kerala, India. Founded in 2017 with a mindset to tackle real-world problems, this research lab has hands-on experience in developing Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Analytics solutions to cater to various industry needs. Its three major service lines include Artificial Intelligence Chatbot development, Advanced Data Analytics solutions, and Business Automation solutions powered by Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and NLP solutions.

So one of the takeaways from Kumar’s article is not all AI honey-pots are based in Silicon Valley. And J.P Morgan is more than just my local bank branch in my Northern Arizona town. We may not have a lot of big-name AI research labs in Arizona, but boy do we have a lot of driverless vehicles and that takes a lot of AI as well.
