Turing Artificial Intelligence Fellow
Editor of Communications in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation

Title: The challenge of trustworthy data-driven Artificial Intelligence: boundaries, limitations, and opportunities


Ivan Tyukin (member of IEEE, LMS, IMA) received the M.S. (Hons.) degree from St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University, Russia, in 1998. After receiving Ph.D. degree in 2001, he joined Perceptual Dynamics Laboratory at RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan. There he pursued research in adaptive, intelligent, and neural systems, and in 2006 has been awarded a DrSc degree by St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University, Russia.

In 2007 he joined the Department of Mathematics at the University of Leicester as a RCUK Academic Fellow and has been promoted to the posts of Lecturer, Reader, and Professor of Applied Mathematics in 2012, 2014, and 2018, respectively.

His research interests are in mathematical foundations of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and learning systems, mathematical modelling, adaptive systems, inverse problems with nonconvex and nonlinear parameterization, data analytics, and computer vision. Ivan Tyukin research programme to develop Adaptive, Robust, Resilient, Certifiable, and Trustworthy AI systems has been supported by a £1.4m UKRI Turing AI Fellowship Award.

He is an Editor of Communications in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulations, and also leads AI and ML research within the UKRI UK Trustworthy Autonomous Systems Verifiability Node, various Innovate UK, AHRC, MRC, and Health Foundation projects, and in Research England METEOR programme.
