Social Interpretation: Imperial War Museum with tech partners: Knowledge Integration, Gooii and UCL and research partners: Exeter University, Salford University and MTM London
IWM and partners developed a system to enable the interpretation, discussion, collection and sharing of cultural experiences and objects with, and between, audiences. This data-driven project had in-gallery, online and mobile applications, which augmented and spread museum collections through social media and digital interaction.
