Projects I'm currently involved in include:

  1. JAMES - building and testing a robot bar tender that learns the rules of human social interaction
  2. Botanitours - mining botanical knowledge sources to help tourists find plants in space and time
  3. Talisman - manufacturing an iBeacon-based smart souvenir to unlock intelligent museum labels
  4. Travelling Treasures - playing games with Lothian’s buses, to attract people into the city’s museums. Try the Treasure Trapper app.
  5. Palimpsest - mining the world’s literature to map pages of books onto the streets of Edinburgh. Try the LitLong website - it also provides a pointer to the app.
  6. UK Connect - mining social media to help understand how UK citizens engage in international affairs, and how the UK’s culture is perceived around the world
