The future of Immersion : Fueling Innovation & Creativity with AI
Propulsed by OASIS Immersion
We are in this exciting time where AI technology is rapidly evolving to better comprehend our physical world, the meaning behind our sentences and our complex human emotions. This new understanding opens the opportunity for new types of stories and world generation in immersive medias. In this showcase, we will discuss where AI could propel generative audio and visuals to repel the creative boundaries of immersion and how they can benefit to the production of a new generation of location based immersive experiences.
