A new artificial intelligence (AI) and quantum computing centre has been launched in North West England.
The Hartree National Centre for Digital Innovation (HNCDI), a partnership between the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and IBM, will bring together expertise in AI and quantum computing to support the application of cutting-edge technologies.
The Government will invest £172 million over 5 years through UK Research and Innovation. An additional £38 million will be invested by IBM.
The centre will work across sectors including materials, life sciences, environment and manufacturing. This will include collaboration with academic and industrial research communities, including start-ups and SMEs, public sector, and government.
