In May 2020 the University of Oxford announced a new strategic collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS), focusing on building a portfolio of new research projects relating to AI, robotics, cyber-physical systems, human-centred computing, and support to the University’s new “Lighthouse” Doctoral Scholarships. The collaboration was supported by a £7 million gift from AWS to the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences Division.

18 months into the programme, AWS is hosting re:Invent, a major international conference for the global cloud computing community. re:Invent will take place from November 29th to December 3rd in Las Vegas, with additional online participation from many tens of thousands of developers, engineers, system administrators, systems architects, IT executives, and technical decision-makers. 

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Professor Louise Richardson, will be contributing a recorded keynote speech about the mutual benefits of the collaboration between AWS and Oxford, and we will be linking here to further information about what has been achieved so far at Oxford.
