Trait Theory

In psychology, trait (or dispositional) theory is an approach to the abstraction and understanding of human behavioural patterns. It involves breaking down attributes of personality into a finite list of traits. The two most popular models of trait theory are the three-factor Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ) model and the five-factor OCEAN model.

Vocal Synthesis

Exploring the methods of physics-based vocal synthesis. Weighing accuracy and performance in the formulation of an appropriate computational implementation.

Automata: AI’s Mechanical Counterpart

Automata (singular: automaton) are machines that perform a prescribed set of physical actions via complex mechanical systems. These actions often mimic human physicality and their complexity can range from lifting a bowl to the ability to converse in multiple languages.

Procedurally-Generated Personalities

Exploring how psychological trait theory can be used to develop a system that determines the actions of characters in our narrative.
