Style by Demonstration (2013)

Style by Demonstration (2013)

This series of projects take a look at how programming by demonstration for interactive characters -- the creation of interactive behaviors by performance demonstration -- can focus on the style of the resutling movement rather than task goals. We explore various incarnations of this style-by-demonstration (SBD) method, from animation to dancing robots, as well as the fundamental questions of how to design SBD interfaces and evaluate SBD interactions.

A playable demo of the early animation version is available online.

As this is a large and multi-faceted project, here is an outline of the following publications:

  • SCA 08 - original animation algorithm and evaluation
  • IUI 12, HRI Poster 10 - robot locomotion paths and broomstick interface, programmer design critique
  • DIS 12 - dancing robots with evaluation
  • HCIJ 13 - multi-part evaluation on how people engage SBD and perceive stylistic locomotion paths
  • TiiS 13 - full final puppet master algorithm, macro analysis across projects of designing and evaluating SBD
  • IJCAI 13 - invited extended abstract based on IUI 12 paper, with user-centered focus
