Surrey’s Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP) - a world-leading centre of excellence in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine perception - will lead on research in AI that can transform captured audio and visual content into media objects that will allow future personalised media experiences to be customisable.
The BBC, world-leading broadcaster will create compelling personalised media experiences for mass-audiences.
Lancaster University’s School of Computing and Communications, with expertise in software-defined networking and self-designing software will deliver highly personalised media experiences to millions of people by automatically sharing network and device capacity across streams, operating at very large scales with low cost and high energy efficiency.
Future Personalised Object-Based Media Experiences Delivered at Scale Anywhere.
The University of Surrey has teamed up with the BBC and Lancaster University on a new five-year ‘Prosperity Partnership’ to develop state-of-the-art artificial intelligence (AI) and cutting-edge technologies that will allow future media experiences to be hyper-personalised by adapting to individual users’ interests, devices, location and accessibility requirements.
As announced by the UK Government, the £15m UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Prosperity Partnership goal is to develop technologies that
will provide the UK creative sector with unrivalled capabilities to create a step-change in audience experiences at scale.
The Prosperity Partnership brings together a network of sixteen creative industry partners (ranging from SMEs to large multinationals) who will be collaborating through different mechanisms, from sponsoring PhD students, to helping evaluate prototypes and providing access to facilities.
