About the Oxford-IBM Alliance

The main scientific focus for the collaboration is the interface of computational, Physical and Life Sciences. Specifically the combination of experimental data, computer simulations, AI and emerging computing platforms such as Quantum Computing. Applications of these tools and techniques are focussed on broad topics including Drug discovery, fundamental biochemistry, reaction predictions in Chemistry, material sciences and climate science. The BPO supports a broad research alliance including the establishment of a new DPhil programme in Computational Discovery. Through this programme we have appointed 16 students on joint projects.
