Media synthesis engages students in computational creativity with multimodal digital data. Balancing theory and practical application, students are progressively introduced to contemporary topics in the collection, analysis and synthesis of media through relevant academic work, computational tools and techniques, and applied explorations of real world datasets.

Media synthesis engages students in computational creativity with multimodal digital data. Balancing theory and practical application, students are progressively introduced to contemporary topics in the collection, analysis and synthesis of media through relevant academic work, computational tools and techniques, and applied explorations of real world datasets. Students are introduced to means by which to collect and access relevant data; the tools, techniques and understandings required for its analysis and processing; and finally strategies and visual languages for its aggregation, composition and synthesis into new forms. Covering both media and arts applications, it introduces a variety of topics including generative art, visualization, summarization, feature extraction, signal processing, and multimodal content analysis.
