A talk for Residents: Michael Armstrong

Senior R&D Engineer, Michael Armstrong, works at the interaction between people, stories, media and technology. (Their) work spans topics from access services, speech audibility, video quality to human perception and the originator of Object-Based Media, an idea formed whilst pioneering computer-based playout in the 1990s at BBC Radio Bristol. Michael’s current research is examining the way media experiences can be built using data-driven techniques enabling media personalisation and natural feeling responsive interaction. This work combines the issues of storytelling and narrative structures, natural forms of agency for the user, the problems of personalisation and the roles that the user can play in an experience along with a healthy dose of data science and python code.

This is a private talk for Studio Residents only. Find out more about Michael Armstrong here.
