GCHQ Fellowship Scheme Targets Fake News & AI Threats
August 6, 2020
The new partnership programme – named the Research Fellowship Programme for National Resilience will offer applicants from academia, science and industry the opportunity to work with us on some of the trickiest technology challenges. By engaging with one of our mentors, it’s hoped that participants can develop cutting-edge techniques which support national security priorities and help keep the country safe.
At GCHQ we use the latest technology, technical ingenuity and world leading partnerships to identify, analyse and disrupt threats in an increasingly complex world and our new research fellowship - entitled ‘’Digital Excellence: Leveraging Expertise’’ – is a further example of how our agency is committed to working with others to address the ramifications of new technology such as AI.
The Research Fellowship Programme for National Resilience is being run from our new Manchester offices and applicants will be judged on their research track record, novelty of approach, vision and the potential impact of their proposal. If successful, one of our advisers will be assigned to their project for an initial six-month period as they develop their security solutions.
To assist in the application process, we have partnered with Manchester-based facilitator The Landing. Those interested in applying should head to The Landing's application page before the submission deadline of midnight 30 August 2020.
