'Artificial: Remote Intelligence': All the new tools set to make the Twitch series more interactive
A new season of Twitch's first scripted series 'Artificial' is on its way. 'Artificial: Remote Intelligence' is all set to push the envelope further than ever before with new tools and a brand-new sandbox to play in.
For those who don't know, 'Artificial', also known as 'ArtificialNext', is an Emmy Award-winning series that harnesses audience interaction to determine the outcome of the story. Unlike works like say 'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch', 'Artificial' is a collective project where the mood of the audience as a whole is taken into account.
With its upcoming third season, the show is moving into new territory with advancements to the audience polling mechanism, including a new dynamic system that shows the audience exactly how much time they have left to make important decisions. However, that's only the tip of the iceberg and there is a lot more cool stuff to try out this season.
'Artificial: Remote Intelligence' will also be using LifeScore, an AI-driven musical scoring system. The tool was co-founded by composer Philip Sheppard and Tom Gruber, CTO and head of design for Siri, and it promises to allow the audience to determine the music for the series in real-time.
The audience will also have greater control over the story this season with new Worldbuilding episodes that allow the viewers to determine more technical elements of production, such as casting, character creation, set design and more. Plus, the audience will also have the ability to jump through multiple live sets and to make it even more interesting, this season will be remotely produced in its entirety.
With the deactivation of main character Sophie Lin (Tiffany Chu) at the end of the last season, 'Artificial: Remote Intelligence' will be starting a new journey with a blank slate artificial intelligence called SV3 (Sophie Version 3) implanted in Sophie's old shell. SV3, still played by Tiffany Chu, will be guided by Elle (Christy St. John), a brilliant and idealistic young scientist who will be leading the live-streaming experience.
