Course description

You will examine how media platforms are comprised of data-processing infrastructure, algorithms, interfaces and mobile devices. We critically explore the engineering projects of media platforms in simulation, surveillance, sensing, machine learning, artificial intelligence and augmented reality. The course explores how media organisations engineer and experiment with our social lives, bodies and lived experience.
