People Count: playful technologies for measuring experience and behaviour, and other forms of Cultural Computation.

‘People Count’ explores the Quorum research initiative which builds on i-DAT’s open infrastructure for ‘harvesting’ and visualising data through Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning [http://quorum.i-dat.org/]. The aim to augment, evaluate and increase engagement with social and cultural experiences. This research has produced high impact events at significant public venues, such as the opening of the Tate Modern Switch house where real-time social media analytics were incorporated into the 197,000-audience experience of the event. The research has informed innovative cultural value metrics such as the Artory audience evaluation app and civil open-data initiatives, such as Plymouth City Council DataPlay and Edinburgh City Scape projects. Research into conversational AI’s has also been woven into the learning environment at the Plymouth Creative School.
