Featured Projects

We are developing technological platforms, human and social processes, and the underlying creative abilities to leverage social media and digital networks to enhance democracies especially in Africa. Our current work has focused on participation in and monitoring of elections while future work will expand that frame seeking to foster broader and deeper civic engagement, especially among youth, the promotion of government accountability and efficacy, and the constructive creative ability to hack democracy.
LuminAI is an interactive art installation that explores the improvisation of proto-narrative movement between humans and virtual AI agents using full body, expressive, movement-based interaction. Interactors can co-create movement with an autonomous virtual agent that learns movement, response, and improvisation directly from interacting with human teachers. It analyses their movement using Viewpoints movement theory.
Georgia Tech and the Human Interface Branch of NASA partnered together to find a way to detect astronauts' body positions in space. In the zero-gravity space environment, it becomes difficult to monitor tasks that lead to repetitive stress injuries or fatigue. Monitoring movement would help NASA pinpoint high-stress actions and make adjustments to corresponding mission tasks. We developed an unobtrusive, textile-based system to monitor astronauts' arm position in real time, in zero gravity, and without the constraints of camera-based motion-input devices.
