More Than AI Sandbox is a creative research and development programme. Watershed’s Sandbox methodology provides a facilitated space where participants have the chance to transform an experimental idea to a working prototype over three months of rapid research and development.  

Up to six teams will be commissioned to create new innovative prototypes that push creative boundaries and use creative technology to creatively and critically engage in ways of working with artificial intelligence and diverse networks of intelligence. 

More Than AI Sandbox is closed for applications. View the More Than AI Sandbox Brief

More Than AI Sandbox is part of the MyWorld IDEAS programme, funded by UK Research and Innovation’s Strength in Places Fund to establish the West of England as the global centre of creative technology excellence.
