Creative and Heritage
The theme explores the transformational impact of digital technologies in the arts, education, community and heritage.
Scope of Theme
Working with our cultural assets, external organisations and communities, we will explore how technologies ranging from digital preservation to virtual and augmented reality will provide unprecedented access to cultural heritage, create new cultural experiences, and redefine the media and creative industries landscape.
Areas of strength include:
- Transforming physical heritage materials into digital versions for online storage, presentation, and analysis
- Representing data visually in graphs, plots, charts and maps
- Discovering and extracting knowledge from the patterns and trends found in large sets of text documents
The University of Manchester is central to the history of computing.
