Design Informatics Department

The University of Edinburgh

Wallscope has an ongoing relationship with the University of Edinburgh’s Design Informatics department. As part of this work we have led research seminars, explored the application of linked data technologies in cultural institutions, and worked with students to develop a digital platform for lower back pain sufferers.

Over the last few years, we have been working with Wallscope to explore the application of semantic, Natural Language Processing and data linking technologies that involve cultural partners. This includes work with the Fruitmarket Gallery and more recently ideas workshops with the National Galleries of Scotland. These very positive collaborations with Wallscope and colleagues in Edinburgh have made a significant contribution to highlighting the value of exploratory research in the Digital Economy.
