As part of its facilitation of UK research and innovation, this year’s BEYOND conference includes a poster exhibition that showcases research by early-career researchers into the creative and digital arts from across the country.
The posters demonstrate projects and discoveries from a range of the UK’s leading universities including Edinburgh, York, Glasgow, Manchester, UAL, Royal Holloway, and Queen Mary, among many others. Encompassing the full range of the creative industries, the research projects showcased at BEYOND’s poster exhibition lie at the intersection of research, art practices, and education.
In convergence with BEYOND core themes on AI, machine learning, and creative-led data, the early career researchers tackle topics such as biometric data as a paradigm for interactive music composition, creative-led data’s impact on the creative industries, chatbots as ethnographic interlocutors, AI as co-producers of museums, digital interventions in poetry, bespoke game controllers, data ethics, the place of VR in cultural heritage and many more.
The poster exhibition is a way for BEYOND to demonstrate universities’ ground-breaking research outputs in the fields of the creative industries and AI, and champion the ideas and discoveries from young up-and-coming academics. It is also an opportunity for junior researchers to introduce their discoveries to the wider academic community as well as industry and artists, thus utilizing BEYOND’s vast network of knowledge exchange.
For the full line up of posters exhibiting along with more detail on the poster topics and the early-career researchers’ profiles, please head to the poster exhibition section of the BEYOND conference website.
