Digital tools exist for creating practically every type of artistic, creative, or communicative digital artifact, including pictures, music, video, and computer animation. This project explores a combined AI-HCI approach to participatory intelligent agents that help amateurs create digital moving image media, such as machinima.
The Digital World and Image Group focuses on two main areas: virtual spaces and real-time imagery gathered from them. We see game spaces and game media as important forms of self-expression. That is why we work to improve creative access and the expressive range available in interactive digital media such as games. Research is conducted in a combination of theory, analysis, and practical experimentation.
