About

The Informatics - ANC - Machine Learning, Computational Neuroscience, Computational Biology programme offered by The University of Edinburgh is a world-leading institute dedicated to the theoretical and empirical study of adaptive processes in both artificial and biological systems. We are one of the UK’s largest and most prestigious academic teams in these fields.

Overview

In the Informatics - ANC - Machine Learning, Computational Neuroscience, Computational Biology programme offered by The University of Edinburgh we foster world-class interdisciplinary and collaborative research bringing together a range of disciplines.

In machine learning we develop probabilistic methods that find patterns and structure in data, and apply them to scientific and technological problems. Applications include areas as diverse as astronomy, health sciences and computing.

In computational neuroscience and neuroinformatics we study how the brain processes information, and analyse and interpret data from neuroscientific experiments.

Career opportunities:

The research you will undertake at ANC is perfectly suited to a career in academia, where you’ll be able to use your knowledge to advance this important field. Some graduates take their skills into commercial research posts, and find success in creating systems that can be used in everyday applications.
