Emergent Reality Lab
In this video, Professor Lee Sheldon and his colleagues discusses the Emergent Reality Lab, and a new initiative to use narrative combined with virtual reality systems, such as the CAVE environment, as a teaching tool. With a seed-grant from the Rensselaer Office for Research, Sheldon and his colleagues led a pilot project in which students followed a narrative, called “The Lost Manuscript,” as part of a course in Mandarin Chinese.
Pauline Oliveros performs with FILTER at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Free Music performance with the creative intelligent music agent FILTER at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center in August 2012 in Troy New. The top waveform correlates with the performance of the agent, the bottom waveform with Pauline Oliveros’ performance. The development of FILTER is part of a project funded by the National Science Foundation: CAIRA – a Creative Artificially-Intuitive and Reasoning Agent in the context of ensemble music improvisation (#1002851). More information about FILTER can be found in: D. Van Nort, P. Oliveros, J.
