Michael Zbyszynski will present the RAPID-MIX API, an easy-to-use toolkit designed to enable artists, designers, makers, educators and creative companies, from beginners to independent developers, to use sensor integration, machine learning and interactive audio. It includes C++ and JavaScript libraries that make it easy to combine sensor data, machine learning algorithms and media output. They provide a full set of functionalities for cross-device and cross-platform development, modular components, and cloud-based services for multimodal data storage. The RAPID-MIX consortium includes researchers at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Goldsmiths University of London and IRCAM. We draw upon techniques from user-centred design to put the end users of our tools and products centre stage.
