The University of Edinburgh AI Accelerator

Welcome to the University of Edinburgh’s AI Accelerator

The AI Accelerator is delivered by The University of Edinburgh’s world-leading innovation hub for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, the Bayes Centre, as part of the DDE Bayes Centre Innovation Pipeline and Edinburgh Innovations, the University of Edinburgh’s commercialisation service. It gives data-driven scaleups the opportunity to harness the power of AI and bring about transformative change. From AgriTech to FinTech, AI technology can bring efficiencies, create new propositions and disrupt markets. It can help save lives and the planet.

To reach a wider UK scaleup community, the Accelerator is also being delivered in partnership with London-based community Scale Space and welcoming Nile's strategic design support.

Each participating company will receive a stipend of £9k per company with the chance to win additional funding
