Digital media research and PhD programmes

Digital Media’s research focus is in the multidisciplinary area of creative computing, which lies at the intersection of artificial intelligence and machine learning, serious and fun gaming, and cognitive modelling in extended reality. The research enables the use of wearable technologies in developing IoT apps in several areas, such as mobile e-health and e-fitness, digital games, 3D computer vision, and computer generated music, achieved through the application of HCI, gamification, digital asset accessibility design and management, and other relevant techniques.
