During the past year EPCC has increased its engagement with the Machine Intelligence Garage, a UK Government programme that supports innovative startups which make use of machine-learning techniques and artificial intelligence (AI).

Part of the Machine Intelligence Garage's remit is to enable technical support, such as HPC services, which is provided by various partners. For example, its industrial partners include AWS, Google Cloud, and NVIDIA. EPCC is a founding partner and we also offer support and potential collaboration for interested startups.
