Bayes Centre

At the Bayes Centre, world-leading data science and artificial intelligence teams are shaping a better future for everyone. Working with partners, we are a proving ground for data-driven innovation to solve real-world problems through scientific enquiry, inspiring design and industrial collaboration.

The £45 million building, located at the heart of the University’s Central campus, was officially opened in October 2018. The Centre’s impressive space is open in design, providing interactive places for occupants to foster relationships.

On Sunday 29th September, the ground floor atrium and seminar room will be open to visitors to find out more about the work happening at the Bayes Centre, including:

  • Visual displays from Edinburgh Centre for Robotics, Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre and Design Informatics
  • The NASA Valkyrie interactive touchscreen experience
  • Informative videos in our seminar room about the work of our Members and Partners  
  • The Bayes Cafe will be open for food and refreshments

Building Tours

In collaboration with the Informatics Forum, there will be tours every half an hour to visit the Centre, including the garden roof terrace with its stunning views of Arthur’s Seat.

The tour starts in the atrium of the Informatics Forum and advance booking for tours is essential, via:

Doors Open Day

Doors Open Day is a chance to explore some of Edinburgh’s architecturally and culturally significant buildings. From heritage landmarks to the city’s newest architecture, Doors Open Day offers free access to properties that are either not usually open to the public or would normally charge an entry fee. The event also offers the public an opportunity to find out more about the capital's public buildings.
