Development of Conversational Agents and Applications in Playful Environments
In this project I will be making a talking, artificial intelligence prototype that provides meaningful, playful exchanges in different interactive settings. By taking advantage of the latest advances in machine learning and creating a model founded on knowledge from social and cognitive sciences, I will build a series of digital avatars to test how they interact with users. This research-creation project connects to other disciplines like Human Computer Interactions (HCI). In this field, human behaviour is partly studied by how people process feedback from different technologies such as the internet, social media, and mobile applications. I aim to improve the development process of conversational AI agents, which will in turn help make new knowledge for digital arts.
