My research focuses on new digital media and cultural production both large and small. What counts as “new digital media” is always changing so my research and teaching are either chasing it or trying to get ahead of it. I hold degrees in Science & Technology Studies and Physiology and Neurobiology.
Specifically, I try to anticipate emerging shifts in information technologies, the creative industries, AI, user behaviour, intellectual property, privacy and data markets. Currently, I’m focusing Open AI’s GTP-2/3 as well as BERT and other Transformer variants, using them to generate original works in music and writing, and predicting how they may change the creative industries markets by facilitating AI assisted or new creative production.
