There has been plenty of hype over artificial intelligence and the internet of things. We believe it may be time to put aside the cynicism that this kind of hype generates and look seriously at how we can take advantage of these emerging technologies to improve the student experience, research and the management of our campuses.
We decided that the three ideas were use-cases which would be enabled if we could develop the basic data infrastructure for the intelligent campus.
However that is a big, long-term development so we decided that our immediate goal should be to analyse in more depth the potential use-cases as well as the technical, ethical and business implications of this approach. Doing this will give us a better idea of where best to get started on developing the data infrastructure for the intelligent campus.
We will be sharing the initial results of our exploration in May. Keep an eye on the Jisc blogfor announcements.
