Academy Camp VR 2023.2-3 "POWER TO THE PEOPLE" - February Part
Sushi, Earth and spaceship in our virtual world
Please find a Japanese version of this report here.
In February, during Japan's scattered holidays, we held an online camp called "Academy Camp VR 2023.2-3 'POWER TO THE PEOPLE'." The camp was attended by 8 children from 2nd grade elementary school to 3rd grade junior high school students. Our main objective was to help the participants harness the power of AI technologies like ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion to create their desired VR experiences and to help humans showcase their abilities by doing so.
The camp began with the children engaging in a word-chain game with ChatGPT. They then asked the AI to assume various roles including cicada larvae, create comparison tables for similar words, and come up with prompts for image generation. The children also challenged ChatGPT to a deduction game, but the AI proved to be a formidable opponent, posing difficult questions for the participants.
During the camp, the children revisited two VR worlds they had previously created: the Cell World and the Unprecedented World. For the Unprecedented World, the participants brainstormed new ways to play together. They generated so many ideas that the online whiteboard was filled with sticky notes, showcasing their creativity and collaboration.
Finally, this camp ended with a promise to meet again at the March camp and to try to make some progress on what we want to do before then.
