About the centre
Established in early 2020, the Computer Research Centre is industry-facing, design-driven, led by Dr Ali Asadipour (Academic Lead).
The RCA’s Computer Science Research Centre is an interdisciplinary research centre in design-led computer science, exploring areas including robotics, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, and advanced visualisation and simulation.
The Computer Science Research Centre will not only provide significant and long-lasting benefit to the RCA but also for the wider research community by pioneering the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art & design, mathematics) agenda. Injecting scientific disciplines into a mix of creative ones will lead to innovative new discoveries.
Staff across the College’s Schools and research centres have a history of winning grant and industry funding for design and computer science collaborations, including projects that explore design-led approaches to human interactions with digital technologies, artificial intelligence and immersive technologies, design for complex systems, visualisation and simulation, and digital economy projects.
