The multimedia lab's main research focus is on computer science applications for the arts. The use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms to manipulate data obtained from sensors or other sources for creative applications. Design and creation of interactive and motion enabled objects.
The Multimedia Lab is fully equipped with 30 workstations for teaching and research purposes. The lab also has a wide range of equipment for the realization of student and research projects.
A methodology for constructing a network that maps the structure of the artworld is proposed. It is based on mining Twitter in an attempt to identify the artworld actors (artists, museums, galleries, curators, etc.) as they exist online and discover connections amongst them. The ability to obtain a map the artworld from social media data is regarded as the first essential step for further exploring how Artificial Intelligence techniques can elaborate on the understanding of the artworld.
