We all live in this world together; people, animals, plants, bacterias and all kind of creatures. We all learned how to live together, and how to interact with each other in this planet. Every one of us have knowledge of each other, every one of us know every creature. For example, we, as human-kind, know animals, dogs, kittens, birds, nearly every animals. And they also know there are humans in this world, everyday they see us we are getting up and living our own lives.
However, we have never experienced how it feels like to meet something who have never seen us. We have never seen someone, some creature who doesn’t know us. We haven’t experienced meeting aliens. Have you ever thought what kind of experience it would be? This project create this experience for us.
Think a world where humanity disappeared and there are only AI bots, robots etc. How they would react when they see a human for the first time, what would they do? This project aims to create a similar experience to this.
There are 10 different AI generated scenarios you can experience.
Human is an experience design project that allows people to understand how it feels like to meet with AI bots who has no idea about human-kind. Think a world where humanity disappeared and there are only AI bots, robots etc. How they would react when they see a human for the first time, what would they do? This project aims to create a similar experience to this.
All conversations start with the same input and rest of the conversations are completely generated by artificial intelligence and there is no enhancement or manipulation. Even the given input is the same, every time AI generates different conversations. This project only includes 10 different conversations.
This project consist of three different phases after the planning. In the first phase, potential inputs are experimented, and conversations are generated by using AI engine. Second phase includes all the visual process; 3D modelling, creating the characters, creating the scenes, rendering for different platforms etc. And in the last phase, all the visual content is combined with sound assets.
All the conversations are generated with GPT-Neo 2.7B model. This model is developed by Goose AI and open-to-use to anyone. Anyone can use the same input and generate different type of conversations.
All the conversations are generated with the same input: “There are two AI bots and a human in a room. The AI bots have never seen a human before and have no idea about them. They're trying to guess what they are looking to and having a very long and deep conversation. AI Bot 1: What is that?”
Currently, The Human Project doesn’t have any VR-suitable application or something. However, anyone can download the videos from Vimeo and experience it with their own glasses.
All conversations start with the same input and rest of the conversations are completely generated by artificial intelligence and there is no enhancement or manipulation. Even the given input is the same, every time AI generates different conversations. Every conversation have its own topic and feeling.
The Human Project is created as a senior project for visual communication design department. With the graduation from the Visual Communication Design department at the end of a 4-year process, I chose to prepare such a thing as my senior project. I wanted to use all the skills I learned and gained in this process and to create a multi-disciplinary, innovative and unique project. During the planning phase, it was a project that I was very excited about, both theoretically and technically. Thanks to this project, I had the opportunity to test my skill set and observe the point of today's technology.
