As AI technology like ChatGPT gained attention, people became worried about its potential impact. This fear was worsened by non-user friendly interfaces and chatbots, leading to widespread uncertainty and reluctance to embrace AI.

SUMMARY

We made a retro arcade game experience with bespoke music and lighting. Using AI chatbot GPT-3, and using the UN’s list of the world’s most pressing issues, we prompted the AI to find a solution using emerging technologies. We wanted to package it in a fun, approachable way that people would recognise from the past and get a sense of ease about their fear.We made an online version as well to widen the audience globally and outside of the office.
