Uros Krcadinac is a digital media researcher, lecturer, writer, illustrator, software engineer, and cross-media artisan. He is a PhD candidate at the University of Belgrade’s AI Lab and a co-founder and principal at Visualize.rs, an information and interaction design studio.

With formal background in information technology and digital media, and informal background in animation, illustration, literature, film, and visual art, his long-term objective is to bring close together ideas from these diverse disciplines. His current professional and personal interests include data visualization, information design, human-computer interaction, and new media art and literature – in terms of research, teaching, and production. He is deeply interested in technology as a language, not as a utilitarian tool.

His projects range from Bantustan, an infographic African documentary novel, to Synesketch, an open-source software for textual emotion recognition and artistic visualization. His work was recognized by international festivals and conferences such as International Digital Media and Arts Association, and scientific journals such as IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems and the IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing.
