What are we doing?


We are trying to make the world a better place by creating digital media experiences that inform, express, and delight. We create near-future digital experiences that engage people in creative practices with computing — whether that means learning to program by making music, improvising dance and improv theatre with AI characters, or experiencing public installations that combine social creative behaviors with generative music.


How are we doing it?


We take a highly multidisciplinary approach to research, involving collaborations with students and faculty across campus. We combine methods from artificial intelligence, human-centered computing, design, and cognitive science with work in humanities and performing arts to create both unique human-centered experiences with computers as well as a better understanding of human creativity and learning.
