UAL Creative Computing Institute is one of 24 UK higher education institutions to win the first ever Alan Turing Institute Network Development Awards.

Each of the awarded institutions will develop or grow projects that support the growth of AI and related fields, and form an active relationship with the Turing Institute’s network.

Open Source AI Tools for Music and Art

Open Source AI Tools for Music and Art introduces musicians and artists to working with AI and data. Working with a medium they already understand and enjoy, it creates potential for exciting creative outcomes.

Led by Dr Louis McCallumCourse Leader, MSc Data Science and AI for the Creative Industries, CCI will use the award to further develop the content and documentation of their existing libraries and platforms; and share these resources through a series of public workshops and concerts.

This will open up access for artists and musicians to have the tools to work with AI and data, and the required experience and training.

The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.

The awards support universities to establish and grow engaged, diverse communities working at all career stages in data science and AI research and innovation within their universities; and to connect Turing Institute priority areas to areas of interest and expertise within HE. They will form new links and collaborations with the wider data science and AI research and innovation community and local and regional communities, developing plans for these networks to become sustainable for the future.
