B Aga Automation Prototype

i-DAT’s B Aga awarded a SWCTN Prototype Grant: Immersive Histories: Decoding Complexity



The prototype Looking for the Cloud will explore sustainability and diversity in our current and future relationships with new technologies – particularly automation and machine learning. Looking for the Cloud will be delivered in collaboration with The Eden Project and manifest as a prototype book, augmented with a proof-of-concept chatbot. The aim of the project will be to raise awareness and enable conversation around the environmental impact of Cloud computing platforms powering advances in machine learning. This prototype will be the first test project of the Re+ Collective – a new female-led collective supporting women to experiment and work with creative technology.




We are looking to invest in prototypes that use creative technologies to deliver original immersive processes, experiences, products or services. The making phase will run through April, May, June with showcasing at the end of June 2019. We anticipate awarding grants of between £20k and £40k.
