I really excited about this. A new initiative for UAL the UAL Creative Computing Institute “Working at the intersection of creativity and computational technologies”. So important for any creative whether you work in graphic design, cordwainers or fine art.
Initially offering a BSc in Creative Computing and an MSc in Creative Computing there are also research opportunities and a public platform to explore computer science and creative practice.
The research, focused on these three areas, is particularly interesting:
1. Creativity, Machine Learning and AI. This platform explores how a foundational technology of the 21st century can be used in creative ways and examines how people will act with such technologies in deploying their personal and collective creativity.
2. Human Computer Interaction. This platform explores how we behave with emerging technologies and what they will mean for products, services and culture.
3. Platforms, Big Data and Digital Citizenship.
Of course, there are lots of creative computing courses at UAL already.
Based in Camberwell but working across every UAL college it will eventually fill this amazing space.
