AI Aerobics

AI Aerobics is a playful learning interface which allows people to challenge habitual and culturally invoked false movements, by comparing them to generated, alternative movements.

Experiment on Space10's site

The human body has evolved for motor redundancy, to adapt movements to ever changing environments. Yet cultural developments in our living conditions, tools and furniture have lead us to perform only minimal, repetitive movements.

The synthesized movements were generated with a custom Reinforcement Learning system. The final interface lets people interactively retrain common activities through these alternative movements, using guided "push-pull" learning sequences.

The full experiment for Space10 includes research with a Physical Therapist, a Psychologist, and Choreographers, as well as further developed learning interfaces (undisclosed).
