Project Aberrant_ is fondly my most exciting project I ever got to work on. In my last year at Lawrence Technological University, I had the opportunity to tackle an unprecedented project for my interaction design studio course. My partner and I were seeking a new method of how we could communicate with devices. Taking inspiration from thoughts and desires of childhood, and pop culture, such as Star Wars, Star Trek, and Alien, we wanted to create an AI system language other than our own. We made a standalone AI communication that allowed us to easily identify what our devices were transmitting. This communication occurred in two different methods: English or another language and the AI system in their own. We developed an algorithm for a basic neutral sound which became the basis of how we would incorporate meaning and emotion within sound. These sounds would be outputted by your device when it was alerted or just wishes to communicate with you. We hope that this could build up into the devices containing their own entity and developing a sense of personality with the user.
