Experimental Culture: A horizon scan for the arts and culture sector | Nesta
This paper is intended to serve as a prompt for Arts Council England’s consultation activity over the forthcoming months, with the intent of provoking a conversation with arts and cultural organisations about the changing context for their work. 

Each chapter includes a short summary of the current context for organisations operating in the (publicly-funded) arts and cultural sector, followed by a section which looks ahead to the opportunities and challenges these drivers could present over the coming decade.

Amplified | Nesta
Nesta has launched Amplified, a pilot programme, to encourage the development of creative digital ideas that generate a positive social outcome. We are offering £10,000 of grant funding to cultural and creative organisations to develop digital ideas. The ideas can be anything from a game to an interactive installation, as long as it seeks to generate a direct social outcome. The social outcomes can be anything from increasing community cohesion to reducing the consumption of single use plastics. The Amplified pilot will support the development of digital ideas through a number of activities:

Keeping a note of this - maybe there's a way we can help more schools get Museums in Boxes later...

The art of analytics: using bigger data to create value in the arts and cultural sector | Nesta
It is still early days in the adoption of data-driven innovation in the arts and cultural sector, but the examples discussed above suggest that it has great potential. If arts and cultural organisations are going to fulfil this potential, they will need to access new data skills, develop an analytical culture, adapt their processes and think innovatively about how to measure the value that they generate. They will also need to learn how to address data pitfalls and biases, and maintain a critical attitude.

Digital Catapult - Immersive Reports
Innovate UK’s recent Knowledge Transfer Network report on The Immersive Economy in the UK estimates that Britain has around 1,000 immersive-specialist companies employing around 4,500 people and potentially representing as much as 9% of global market share. UK Creative Industries have a huge amount to contribute to this emerging immersive sector, not least because many of the skills involved are derived from different corners of this thriving, diverse and crucial part of the economy (such as film, TV, games, visual effects, etc).

Digital Catapult - Evaluating Immersive User Experience and Audience Impact
This report on Evaluating Immersive User Experience and Audience Impact, conducted by Nesta and i2 Media Research for Digital Catapult, looks at the challenges of understanding the value of creative content while the consumer market for VR and AR content is still small, and traditional quantitative measures of measuring impact are not always available or reliable. The report develops a research methodology for testing and evaluating the experimental immersive content that is being made now, in a way that will help us predict the potential audience appetite, cultural impact, and commercial opportunity in the future.

Is AI eating software? An analysis of AI/ML research trends using scientific pre-prints | Nesta
Authors submitting their papers to arXiv classify them in different categories. In the case of Computer Science (cs), there are 40 categories ranging from cs.AI (Artificial Intelligence) to cs.SY (Systems and Control). One simple way to identify AI/ML papers would be to focus on categories where we might expect to find many relevant papers, such as for example cs.AI or stat.ML (Statistics: Machine Learning)). Instead of doing this, we have used a topic modelling algorithm which detects clusters of interrelated words in documents, and classifies documents in those topics.
