Student success in G Research PhD Competition

By sharon.betts, on 16 May 2023

G Research, an industry partner and supporter of our CDT, recently ran a competition for our PhD students, summarising their PhD research field and sharing how their work is both novel and has an impact in its field.

At G-Research we value supporting talent and innovation at institutions world-wide. We were thrilled to sponsor the UCL CDT in Foundational AI PhD prize. The video submission format provided the opportunity for PhD students to present their research in a concise way. We are grateful of the chance we were given to join in on talks and the poster session at Cumberland Lodge. We look forward to repeating the experience next year and meet more of the staff and students. – Dr Charles Martinez, Academic Relations Manager

There were three prize winners overall

1st Jakob Zeitler
2nd Augustine Mavor-Parker
3rd Jake Cunningham

The standard of submission was excellent. All videos were very high quality, interesting and informative and we’re very proud of our students.

The prize is important since it has encouraged students to focus on learning the skills to communicate scientific ideas well and to a broader audience. The entries were also quite creative and we hope that all entrants found this a useful and enjoyable process.

Below is the winning entry video from Jakob Zeitler

We are delighted to that our students are excelling in their field and providing new ideas for the future of AI research.

The CDT wishes to thank G Research for its support.
