AIsop: Exploring Immersive VR Storytelling Leveraging Generative AI

Published March 16, 2024 in IEEE VR '24: 2024 IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces Abstracts and Workshops (VRW) by Elia Gatti, Daniele Giunchi, Nels Numan, Anthony Steed


We introduce AIsop, a system that autonomously generates VR storytelling experiences using generative artificial intelligence (AI). AIsop crafts unique stories by leveraging state-of-the-art Large Language Models (LLMs) and employs Text-To-Speech (TTS) technology for narration. Further enriching the experience, a visual representation of the narrative is produced through a pipeline that pairs LLM-generated prompts with diffusion models, rendering visuals for clusters of sentences in the story. Our evaluation encompasses two distinct use cases: the narration of pre-existing content and the generation of entirely new narratives. AIsop highlights the myriad research prospects spanning its technical architecture and user engagement.
