Bradford-Renduchintala Centre for Space AI

The Bradford-Renduchintala Centre for Space AI was established through a multi-million-pound philanthropic donation from our alumni, Dr Murthy Venkata Renduchintala, and by significant investment from the University.  

Our vision is to establish the Centre as an internationally recognised Centre of Excellence in AI technologies, exploiting distributed computing, telecommunications and leveraging low-cost low-power electronics devices. We aim to develop automation and information solutions for space systems, which are distributed, fractionated, and would serve as an enabler for driving a net zero carbon agenda.

Our mission is to deliver transformative societal impacts through world-class multidisciplinary research and outstanding training in space technologies to create opportunities and benefits for all. In pursuit of this goal, we embrace equality, diversity, inclusivity, and inspire new thinking to reimagine a smart and sustainable exploitation of space.

Message from Dr Murthy Renduchintala

Yorkshire, the City of Bradford, and the University hold a special place in my heart. This was my home for eight very happy years of my life from late 1983 through the summer of 1991. From an academic perspective, the University provided me with the educational foundation that allowed me to fulfill most of my professional dreams. But maybe even more valuable to me (as I look back and reflect) were the indelible memories of the warmth and charm of the people of Bradford and West Yorkshire and, of course, the magnificent Dales. Even though my Family and I reside on the west coast of the USA now, I still return to Yorkshire and the Dales every couple of years or so and am reminded of why I love this place so much. God’s own country indeed...
