We recently started a project called MiCLUES to develop dynamic smartphone-based visitor guidance algorithms and software for the Royal College of Music Museum of Instruments. The aim is to enable visitors to make better use of the combined physical and digital collections and to chart both curated and personalised paths through the museum.
The project is a collaboration between the RCM and UCL and is funded by Share Academy. Share Academy is an Arts Council England funded programme that aims to develop and foster relationships between London specialist museums and academics at UCL and the University of the Arts London. It has funded 15 projects to help establish best practice and produce guidance for the museum and Higher Education sectors.
