i-DAT’s Core Research Themes are:

Cultural Computation: audience behaviours, environments, ‘things’ and Artificial Intelligence.

Digital Heritâge: recognises that history is a pile of debris, some of which is digital or can be transfigured through digital processes.

Behaviourables & Futuribles: the Internet of Things, remote sensors, robotics, Props & Wearables –  (everywareables?).
Interactive & Immersive Environments: The digital Umwelt  – new experiences in enhanced physical, augmented & virtual spaces.
Ludic Systems: Playful subversion – real-time social gaming and playful soft-hard-ware.
