About this Event

CI Labs #6 - CI Programme Showcase

CI Labs #6 will feature presentations from some of the fantastic individuals and organisations that have participated or are currently participating in the Creative Informatics programme.

Come along to find out more about funding opportunities available through Creative Informatics for creative individuals and organisations that are interested in exploring data-driven approaches to overcome challenges and create new products, businesses and experiences.

Our speakers will include:

  • Dr Tara Thompson is a lecturer in English and Film at Edinburgh Napier University and a partner on the Challenge Project set by Edinburgh City of Literature Trust. Tara will give an overview of the Literature Trust's challenge, exploring how data and technology can be used to recreate the key dimensions of the experience of reading, with a particular focus on the immediacy and intimacy of sensory and imaginative engagement.
  • Mark Daniels will give an overview of New Media Scotland's Challenge Project which aims to develop an innovative data-driven guest journey for participants in Atmosphere , New Media Scotland's programme of immersive cinematic experiences.
  • Ana Betancourt is a co-founder of Black Goblin Audio, an audio design and post-production company based in Edinburgh, who were successful in applying for the first cohort of Resident Entrepreneurs. Black Goblin is developing a series of software applications targeted at non-audio professionals. These tools will allow people to create computer-generated sound from scratch in an easy, non-technical way, negating the need for costly recording sessions.
  • Andrew Girvan is a co-founder of Scottie, and participated in the pilot of the Creative Bridge programme, run by CodeBase. Scottie is developing an intuitive drag and drop website builder for the theatre industry, that utilises theatre companies existing data and and provides integration with box office solutions, making it easier for theatre companies to build and develop relationships with their customers.

CI Labs

They are part of Creative Informatics, a partnership across the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University, Codebase and Creative Edinburgh, enabling individuals and organisations to explore how data-driven technologies can enhance their work.
