Experiencing Data

Experiencing Data

Can data make us better?

Humans are now seen by many as walking, talking data-sets. For some this is terrifying; for others this is the future of technology helping us to be more human.

The DRIVA arts DRIVA project is unlocking sets of unique, real-time big data and helping tech innovators to build from it and arts practitioners to create experiences from it.

In this free event, Sarah Ticho, founder and CEO of virtual reality developer Hatsumi, will explain how she is pushing data-driven innovation to the boundaries of healthcare potential. And how the use of the data created by our bodies could revolutionise treatment, recovery and and how we cope with pain.

This will be a talk and a practical workshop for anyone interested in the potential of data when its insights help us to live better lives.

Also hear from University of Brighton experts and other project partners about how DRIVA arts DRIVA can help you open up unprecedented opportunities.
