Empathic AI Painter: A Computational Creativity System with Embodied Conversational Interaction

by   Özge Nilay Yalçın, et al.
Simon Fraser University

There is a growing recognition that artists use valuable ways to understand and work with cognitive and perceptual mechanisms to convey desired experiences and narrative in their created artworks (DiPaola et al., 2010; Zeki, 2001). This paper documents our attempt to computationally model the creative process of a portrait painter, who relies on understanding human traits (i.e., personality and emotions) to inform their art. Our system includes an empathic conversational interaction component to capture the dominant personality category of the user and a generative AI Portraiture system that uses this categorization to create a personalized stylization of the user's portrait. This paper includes the description of our systems and the real-time interaction results obtained during the demonstration session of the NeurIPS 2019 Conference.
