Oxford – Singapore Human-Machine Collaboration Programme: Innovation Pillar
The HMC Programme demonstrates use cases of an Oxford-AWS research cloud initiative on a high-profile international stage. Through rapid test bed projects, we are demonstrating the first steps towards a longer-term perspective where AWS and Oxford can enable a digital collaboration platform for the international ecosystem, catalysed by Oxford AI initiatives in spacetech, createch, sciencetech, edtech and sustaintech, similar to the Oxford-Singapore AI & HMC endeavour. These collaboration activities are managed by Sarolta Mohaine Palfi, and the conversations are growing with the AWS Cloud Innovation Centre, AWS Institute, AWS Ground Station, the new AWS Aerospace and Satellite Solutions Division, Kuiper Project, Amazon Studios and Game Studios, AWS Open Data Registry Team and the AWS Prime (Drone) and Alexa (NLP) research centres. 19 test beds benefit from a 5-month rapid project funding, starting in waves (08/2020, 11/2020, 04/2021, 06/2021). 39 Oxford academics and research groups are taking the lead of the cross-divisional test bed projects which are bridging between the MPLS, Humanities, Social Sciences and GLAM (Gardens, Libraries and Museums) Divisions.
