This project artistically demonstrates an infant’s reaction to the external stimulation with the help of various information technologies, such as machine learning and digital signal processing. In this project, the infant will react to three types of stimulation: visual stimulation, auditory stimulation and tactile stimulation. Each of them will pose impact on the infant’s state in its own manner, resembling what would be expected of an actual human infant. For simplicity, the infant’s state will be modeled with two distinct aspects: alertness and comfort, each with its own hidden progress bar. For artistic expression, we employ a strawberry shown on a digital screen to visualize the infant’s state. To be more specific, the strawberry’s form and style will change according to the infant’s level of alertness and comfort/discomfort.
