Google Ancient Places

The Google Ancient Places (GAP) project is inspired by two questions: How can I easily find (and view) all the places mentioned in a classical text? And how can I find classical texts about a place I am interested in? GAP is a Google-funded consortium that uses the latest text mining methods to semantically annotate references to ancient places in the Google Books corpus. Continue reading →

Soldier in Later Medieval England

This is the most significant project ever undertaken on the late medieval soldier. For the first time hard data has been produced on individuals and groups (such as the soldiers serving under one particular leader, or in particular locations). Our project provides a dynamic picture over eighty years of English warfare, from 1369-1453, as opposed to a study of a single campaign. Continue reading →

Multi-Modal Instrument: A Platform for Comparative Controller Evaluation

There has been increasing research interest in real-time performance control of sound synthesis as the variety of hardware available to mediate this control has expanded, chiefly through changes in video game and mobile device technology and the arrival of programmable Open Source Hardware systems.  These devices offer a range of new interactions with real-time synthesis software, such as multi-touch surfaces, tangible objects, orientation and motion capture (i.e. Continue reading →

Frameworks 3D: Composition in the third dimension

Music composition on computer is a challenging task, involving a range of data types to be managed within a single software tool. A composition typically comprises a complex arrangement of material, with many internal relationships between data in different locations - repetition, inversion, retrograde, reversal and more sophisticated transformations.

3D Chirp: Underwater Sub-Bottom Profiling at the University of Southampton

The University of Southampton’s 3D Chirp sub-bottom profiler is used for underwater 3D seismic imaging.  The scans it produces are of 3D data volumes, rather than the traditional 2D sections—meaning that the results can be used to reconstruct rich, three-dimensional models of the scanned areas.   These models can be viewed in horizontal, vertical and arbitrary slices, offering a much more robust means to analyse the data.
