Make your own game with Sun Yuqian

AR, VR, AI, Metaverse, all these buzzwords are omnipresent in and outside of video game culture in recent years. Some of us may easily feel intimidated by the supposedly complicated and challenging technologies and jargon. Luckily, this time we invite technologist and artist Sun Yuqian, who has created several game art projects based on AI chatbots and other emerging technologies. In her gameworks, players are accompanied by AI characters in adventures and time travel. Sun has also worked in and around open virtual social spaces such as Gather.Town to organize her work and networks.
In this week’s game kitchen, we invite Sun to share with us her creative experiments with chatbots and building metaverse social space in gather.towm. She’d also introduce us to some easy to use tools to make AR object, upload your own NFT work and make simple games!

和孫羽茜學習做遊戲
AR、VR、AI、元宇宙,這幾年來在遊戲圈內外,這些熱詞都席捲著我們的娛樂和生活。不少人可能會被這些看上去艱深的詞彙和負責的技術嚇倒,這次遊戲廚房我們幸運的請到了藝術家孫羽茜,她創作了很多遊戲藝術作品,應用AI聊天機器人等等新興技術製作冒險世界和時空旅行的故事,也熱衷於嘗試元宇宙平台例如GatherTown來創作和社交。
這次,孫羽茜不但會和我們分享她做遊戲的經驗和故事,也會教我們使用簡單的工具上傳自己的NFT作品、製作AR物件,甚至做個小遊戲~

孫羽茜,AI藝術家與設計師,畢業於清華美院與倫敦大學金史密斯學院,現為英國皇家藝術學院博士生,百度飛槳開發者技術專家(PPDE), rct.ai藝術顧問。她的靈感來自於遊戲中與虛擬人(Virtual Besings)的對話:她以這種好奇心為創作動力。作品圍繞AI聊天機器人為展開,專注於AI互動中的敘事和親密關係。她的作品與研究曾在世界各地的畫廊和會議中展出與發表,包括2020加拿大人工生命會議,俄羅斯葉利欽中心媒體藝術節,2021亞洲數字藝術展,2021亞洲加密藝術周,ACM 女性計算機會議與艾廠人工智能藝術中心等。
