About this event

Join Digital Catapult and the Industry Challenge Owners on 3 July 2024.

This webinar will provide you with an overview of the High Growth AI Accelerator for Innovate UK BridgeAI, designed and delivered by Digital Catapult. The 14-week accelerator is to help UK-based startups, scaleups and SMEs validate responsible, ethical and desirable AI and ML deep-tech solutions that tackle real-world industry challenges in the creative sector.

The theme of the call focuses on addressing critical aspects of the creative industries with solutions that can demonstrate technological innovation and redefine the concept of entertainment in the digital era. We are interested in proposals spanning the entire spectrum of the creative industries, encompassing areas such as music, digital media, film, television, and beyond.

We invite innovators to tackle specific commercial challenges, developed in collaboration with industry leaders. Applicants are encouraged to choose a challenge aligned with their expertise, as each presents a distinct opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the landscape of AI and ML solutions in the creative sector.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the programme’s Industry Challenge Owners; LadBible Group, Music Tech UK, Bauer Media Group and Merlin Entertainments to hear about their challenges first-hand, and ask any questions regarding the programme’s application and selection process.
