An Interactive Introduction

This interactive introduction invites visitors to explore the range of images, objects and ideas that shape this exhibition. Visitors may be familiar with the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in their encounters with the preference engines that select their online music, videos or shopping, but the use of AI as an essential tool in a wide range of creative processes is often invisible.

The interactive installation employs a basic form of AI that combines computer vision, machine learning and neural networks that analyze hand gestures in real time and trigger an appropriate response to visitors’ interactions. The images and information on this wall are addressed in greater depth throughout the exhibition.

Text To Speech

The interactive Introduction to The Imitation Game is the result of a collaboration with Vancouver’s Centre for Digital Media, under the direction of Larry Bafia. Graduate students in this program worked as a team to design, program and produce this wall. Many thanks to that talented team:

  • Allyson Zhong – Project Manager/UX
  • Luisa Martinez Riaño – UX/UI
  • Sooq Won – Video Artist/Producer
  • Farbod Tabaei – Concept Artist/Developer
  • Pieteke MacMahon – Software Developer/UX/UI Designer
  • Larry Bafia – team advisor and program director

Cindy Shi contributed post-production programming support.

The Centre for Digital Media was founded in 2007 and is a unique graduate program whose degree is imprinted with the seals of its four partner institutions: University of British Columbia, Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Simon Fraser University and British Columbia Institute of Technology.
