This is an interesting premise: the live interaction of an autonomous vision controlled computer “actor” with a human actor. That’s what 1997 play “It/I” written by Claudio Pinhanez was apparently about. It’s an interesting exploration of AI – Human interaction. It looks intensely cerebral, cold and esoteric, but the intersection of media technology and actor is what intrigues me. Thought I’ll share it. (The play was originally performed at the MIT Media Lab in 1997; a quick google search suggests that Pinhanez is now working for IBM Research)
