We live in a digital age where technology constantly changes, disrupts, and transforms. Researchers at Swansea University use digital technology across all disciplines including law, health, science, engineering, arts and humanities , to analyse the past and shape tomorrow’s world.

We have:

  • Been awarded funding to be part of 16 new Centres for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence, part of a £100m investment by UK Research and Innovation. Here, researchers will use AI technology to improve healthcare, tackle climate change, analyse Big Data and create new commercial opportunities.
  • Contributed to research in AI from the discovery of gravitational waves to the detection of breast cancer. Through our interdisciplinary approach, Swansea University can develop start- of- the- art research projects which cover fundamental particle physics and astronomy, the health and clinical sciences, and novel ideas in mathematical, physical and computer science.
  • Led the legal tech revolution, looking at how AI and other technologies are shaping the future of the legal profession. The University was the first in the UK to launch a master’s programme in LegalTech, equipping students with the skills to be 21st century lawyers.  The University is also home to LegalTech Wales, a hub for researching and developing the Legaltech sector in Wales. 
  • Focused on nurturing transformational digital ideas to enhance and support individual lives. Swansea University is also home to multidisciplinary research centre CHERISH-DE ( Challenging Human Environments and Research Impact for a Sustainable and Healthy Digital Economy )It explores how to deliver digital innovations that help people relate and respond to our rapidly expanding technological world, with a focus on health and social care, resource-constrained communities, heritage, cybersecurity and cyberterrorism.
