CAMERA 2.0 Launch event
On Friday 30th April we were thrilled to welcome academics, students, partners and guests from across our network to our CAMERA 2.0 Launch event. If you missed the event you can watch the recording to hear Centre Directors, theme leads and industry partners outline the huge achievements of CAMERA to date, our ongoing research and their visions for the future of intelligent interactive and visual computing research at University of Bath.
CAMERA 2.0 is one of six new EPSRC Digital Economy Next Stage Centres across the UK that will pioneer world-leading research to help people grasp the possibilities of the digital revolution, while addressing key challenges to their online safety and privacy. This new funding along with our exciting new motion capture studio at The Bottleyard in Bristol will ensure CAMERA can carry on with this innovative approach to working with partners to translate our academic research into solving real world problems.
Huge thanks to Centre Director Darren Cosker and Co-Director James Bilzon, and Co-Investigators Steffi Colyer and Neill Campbell from University of Bath for introducing their research in the three CAMERA research themes: Creative Science & Technology, Digital Health & Assistive Technology, and Human Performance Enhancement.
Combining research excellence in Computer Vision, Graphics, Human Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence with additional expertise in health, rehabilitation, biomechanics, sport performance and psychology, we work with partners to translate our research and technology into wider areas of industry and society.
We were privileged to welcome 3 of our partners to this launch event to speak about their experience of working with CAMERA and the applications they have made to their work. Thank you to Dan Ring from The Foundry, Danny Holdcroft from British Bobsleigh & Skeleton Association and Russ Coppack MBE from UK Ministry of Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre.
