The Accelerate Programme for Scientific Discovery is an interdisciplinary research team using machine learning to advance the frontiers of science. Based in Cambridge University’s Department for Computer Science and Technology, Accelerate Science’s work includes:


Accelerate Science pursues research that applies machine learning to the scientific challenges of the 21st century, generating insights that accelerate scientific progress and creating AI tools that are capable of delivering benefits for science and society.


Education and training

Accelerate Science is creating learning and development opportunities that help equip researchers with the machine learning skills and tools they need to drive a new wave of scientific progress.



Accelerate Science is building a community of researchers committed to advancing the use of machine learning across research domains, with the aim of accelerating scientific discovery.


PhD students and postdocs across Cambridge have another chance to apply for a funded training course that is successfully equipping scientists with powerful tools to progress their research.
