NVIDIA sets up first art technology joint research centre with School of Design
PolyU is collaborating with NVIDIA to establish the Research Centre on Culture and Art Technology (CAT), a joint research centre for innovation in culture, art technology and interactive media with the goals of nurturing talents, conducting collaborative research, and becoming a leading research centre in culture and art technology.
Leveraging Hong Kong’s position in the Greater Bay Area and its vibrant art and creative activities, CAT is intended to become an international hub of culture and art technology research, driving creative innovation in the art-tech field. This academia-industry collaboration combines the strengths of NVIDIA technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics and high-performance computing, and PolyU’s expertise in cross-disciplinary research and education, to promote and create impactful and creative research in art technology.
“The collaboration between PolyU Design and NVIDIA in the establishment of the world's first joint research centre with a leading design school will be groundbreaking for creative and art technology,” said Dr Simon See, Senior Director of NVIDIA AI Technology Center.
“This collaboration will drive cutting-edge research and enable the development of innovative solutions for the creative industry with the help of AI,” Dr See added.
Prof. Henry Duh, Centre Director of PolyU-NVIDIA Joint Research Centre said PolyU always seeks strong community engagement to produce timely and cutting-edge industry-relevant research.
“By leveraging NVIDIA’s expertise in artificial intelligence, we will provide a collaborative platform for GBA culture groups and art communities to create new forms of arts,” he said.
