The University of Southern Denmark, in collaboration with international partners, is creating digital historical figures as part of a DKK 35 mn project

The University of Southern Denmark, in collaboration with international partners, is creating a digital and interactive version of the Danish fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen. He is a part of a DKK 35 mn (USD 5.6 mn) project called Natural Interactive Communication for Edutainment, otherwise known as NICE. The EU Commission has given DKK 25 mn (USD 4 mn) to NICE, with the University of Southern Denmark and industrial partners stumping up the remainder.

 

The project has reached a stage where the commercial perspectives of creating interactive figures are coming to the fore. Niels Ole Bernsen, coordinator and professor at the University of Southern Denmark, says they are interested in talking to companies in Denmark and abroad. He sees great opportunities for the technology in the entertainment industry, as well as an opportunity to bring people from the past to life in a digital form, and help preserve cultural heritage. Isaac Newton will be the next person to be re-created via the new technology. The news is reported by Computerworld online.
