Co-Director / Animation Lead / Art Director
For my MFA thesis, I'm co-directing Wetware, a 3D first-person computer game about the interplay between AI ethics and consciousness. AI research has become one of the most popular and dependent areas today. They enter our homes in the forms of home assistants. But once these omnipresent entities move from being mere assistants to being truly intelligent beings, how will that change the nature of our relationship with the technology we use? That is the question we explore in my thesis.
