The NTU Global Digital Art Prize (NTU GDAP) is organised by the NTU Institute of Science and Technology for Humanity (NISTH) and the School of Art, Design and Media. Taking the form of a biennial competition, it recognises global artists and technologists with extraordinary creativity in digitally mediated art, design and cultural heritage.
The theme of the inaugural NTU GDAP is Fourth Industrial Revolution. The key components driving the Fourth Industrial Revolution include big data, the Internet of Things, robotics, artificial intelligence, real-time and deep data generation and analytics, 3D printing, machine learning, personalised healthcare and medicine, and cyber security. Their effectiveness in shaping the human condition in the 21st century will inevitably call for close integration of technological innovations with areas such as social sciences, ethics, policy, and digital arts and humanities.
The competition is free to enter and open to international artists and local (Singapore) students.
