Respiration as Inspiration
In recognition of a multi-faceted approach to the future of breathing, Durham University and University of Bristol’s ‘Catch Your Breath’ exhibition (arising from their joint ‘Life of Breath’ research project) explores the idea that breathing is far more than a marker, and facilitator of, health, but a conduit to communication, creativity, and beyond. The exhibition explores our relationship to the act of breathing over time. In part two of our ‘Deep Breaths to Deep Learning: The Future of Breathing’ series, we will explore the emerging trend of “Respiration as Inspiration” (as identified in the ‘Catch Your Breath’ exhibition), from the perspective of transformative technologies, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and their impact on the future of breathing.
