Liverpool digital is at the heart of our research revolution.
The University of Liverpool’s digital research is enabling the transformation of society and industry through the generation, communication and application of data.
We are tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges by harnessing the digital revolution to help deliver better health, social justice and industrial competitiveness.
Our digital expertise underpins discovery and applications across the sciences and humanities at the University, by improving research and analysis techniques and broadening research and innovation possibilities.
AI in law, democracy and policy making
Experts at the University of Liverpool are harnessing a more human side to artificial intelligence to support decision making in justice, e-democracy and policy making.
Autonomous robots in hazardous environments
Scientists at the University of Liverpool are at the vanguard of the effort to develop better computer programs for autonomous machines to perform more effectively in hazardous places.
Tracing the lives of British and Australian convicts
This collaborative project, using genealogical, biometric and criminal justice datasets, will make it possible for people to trace records of London convicts from 1787 to the 1920s.
Big ideas from Big Data
From the humble store card to mobile phones, we’re all producers of data, and scientists are learning how to collate and use huge volumes of public and commercial data for positive social outcomes.
Intelligent machines in houses and space
People are living longer lives, and researchers are developing intelligent domestic robots that are set to make our twilight years safer, more comfortable, and healthier.
Uses of topological data analysis (TDA)
Topological data analysis (TDA) promises to uncover the underlying patterns in everything from climate research data to digital pictures posted online.
