New Course Combines Art and Engineering

September 14, 2018


COMS W4995-008 Interactive Stories with AR/AI, taught by Amir Baradaran is open to undergraduate and graduate students across the university.

Students will experiment with the concept of art-based creative research where artists and engineers come together to create interactive stories using augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI).  This class is working towards a multi-layered and multi-purpose software that serves as a new platform for storytellers to streamline the process of writing a multidimensional script that automatically generates animations for interactive (AI-enabled) stories inside AR platforms. The software is in its beta version and is currently being used to create two of Amir Baradaran's upcoming award-winning public art installations.
