REPLICATE assembles a world-class team of creative thinkers from research and private sectors to:
(1) Fuel the creative industries’ growing demand for high-quality content by developing a user-centric, mobile-based, 3D-acquisition tool to transform the real-world into new forms of creative-assets by recruiting and encouraging the involvement of everyone.
(2) Establish rich and flexible forms of reusable content through the development of semantic decomposition tools that can guide users through the process of unlocking sub-elements of objects and easily add lifelike properties to complex objects.
(3) Introduce and stimulate the creative industries to new ways of content creation, access and reusability through a carefully devised crowd-sourcing strategy, fuelled by 3 Creativity Incubators. --
REPLICATE will benefit many stakeholder groups: Citizens will be empowered to generate 3D and be encouraged to solve disambiguations during reconstruction and decomposition. Creative people without prior 3D expertise will get icon-driven tools to experiment and play with 3D. Creativity professionals will be able to add richness and semantic-awareness to 3D models by harnessing human experience and state-of-the-art object detection. Researchers in the humanities will be able to take advantage of the creativity platform, usability and usage outcomes to further their research into co-creativity.
