Pre-Learning Experiences with Co-Creative Agents in Museums

Co-creative agents, or artificially intelligent computer agents that can collaborate creatively in real-time with human partners, have proven successful in being both creatively engaging and fun to interact with. Prior research in museum experience design also indicates that due to their incorporation of embodied interaction, creative narrative construction, and personal identity, co-creative agents have potential to drive pre-learning experiences that motivate participants to learn more about technology in museum settings. However, many co-creative agents fall short in effectively communicating technology-related educational outcomes. My work aims to explore how museum experiences involving co-creative agents can be designed and evaluated such that they both foster creative engagement and facilitate pre-learning experiences, using two interactive installation projects (LuminAI and TuneTable) as technical probes.
