Data, AI and robotics

The University of Edinburgh is a global leader in robotics and autonomous systems.

We work on numerous research areas in this field, with different partners, focusing on safety and safe interaction between robots, people and their environments.

Our work is underpinned by the strength of infrastructure which can unlock value from data, allowing companies to gain real insights into their data and establish important correlations, patterns and relationships.

Spanning the spheres of hardware and software, we offer a skills-rich, imaginative environment where industrial, academic and other organisations can collaborate with us and each other to drive new ideas forward, test concepts and assess the market potential of innovative products and services.
