AI is at the heart of Imperial College’s academic strategy, and is a key cross-cutting research theme. As a result, Imperial has created a flagship new interdisciplinary AI initiative called I-X. I-X’s vision is to deliver transformational research, teaching and innovation, co-locating staff, students, and industry, to build a new model of co-discovery and co-creation in the digital space. I-X is based in the I-Hub at Imperial’s White City Campus, part of the wider White City Innovation District. I-X opened its 27,000 sq.ft. space in May 2022, and builds on the expertise of >300 academic and research staff across the university. Eleven new faculty members have recently been recruited for I-X, with more to come in 2023. As a new cross-departmental co-location campus, I-X brings together Imperial’s strengths in both foundational and applied AI with our great interdisciplinary challenges.
