By using parameterization techniques which model the knowledge space of a living or cognitive systems (eg. the behavior space of whales) it is possible to use AI techniques to create new types of expression systems for use in communication, learning, interactive games and digital media systems. DiPaola will discuss and demonstrate his work in this area (see ivizlab.sfu.ca) including iFace which uses an behavior based approach for synthetic 3D facial communication, and its applications in psychology research, gaming and learning. He will show his lab’s ongoing work with: the Vancouver Aquarium to create an Artificial Life based Beluga Whale Interactive, where visitors can collaboratively interact with a simulated pod of wild beluga whales to learn more about marine mammal behaviors, as well as more experimental systems that explore computer creativity that create moving set design by extracting emotion out a music score or automatically evolving portrait painter programs using Genetic Programming (dipaola.org/evolve) as a way to enhance automatic computer creativity.
