I am very interested in how cognitive systems can enrich our non-technical lives. I wanted to explore how we can enable AI to understand something as complex and nuanced as visual stories. I created a real-data interactive prototype that combines disparate data sources to create a companion that gives users a more profound experience of comics with a dedicated expert. A comic-inspired second screen experience serves to provide users a better understanding of a dense and complex story. AI integrates data from video, visual imagery, background information, and historical events to provide better context to the story and characters.
