The Department of Computer Science is one of six chosen to work with the BBC over four years. This long term collaboration will explore and shape understanding of how people will interact with future content and media.
When the Partnership was announced, Matthew Postgate, Controller Research & Development BBC, said: “This is an exciting partnership that allows us to explore how audiences could engage with new types of content in the future, and how we can better make it available to them. By bringing together a world class team of experts from academia and BBC R&D, we aim to stimulate innovation that not only benefits the BBC and our audiences, but also the wider industry.”
Matt Jones, Head of Computer Science said, “Designing for person scale is essential in a world of Big Data. We’re excited and delighted by the prospects of working with BBC R&D and the excellent universities in this partnership to help shape compelling, interactive content experiences that are driven by this human factor”
