Creative Computing Research

New knowledge for computer science, creative industry and the arts.

At the Creative Computing Institute (CCI), our research explores the application of cutting edge computer science in the creative industries and the arts. We generate novel and valuable applications for computational research by developing new technologies and approaches. We want to ensure that these future technologies are shaped by creative thought.

Our Institute and its research degrees, projects and partnerships are focused on 3 key themes:

  • Creativity, Machine Learning and AI
  • Human Computer Interaction and Platforms
  • Big Data and Digital Citizenship

We invite new students, researchers, computational practitioners and organisations to explore these dynamic and fast evolving areas and join our research community.
