Mind: Cool Interactive Websites To Explore During Covid-19 Home Confinement

WAYNE MCGREGOR
Google Arts & CultureLab collaborated with world class choreographer Wayne McGregor to create an AI driven choreography tool. The tool uses machine learning to predict and generate movement based on Wayne’s previous work, and in the style of his dancers, creating a live dialogue between Wayne and his archive.
In July 2019 McGregor used the tool in his creative process for new work ‘Living Archive: a performance experiment,’ while developing new insights on how AI can inform the choreographic-making process.
This online experiment opens Wayne’s creative process to the public – inviting users to explore almost half a million moments of movement from Wayne McGregor’s archive, and make connections between poses to create their own choreography.

(UN)TRAFFICKED
(UN)TRAFFICKED tells the story of one girl, whose life is changed forever over the course of just one week. Stories like this play out for thousands of children across India every year.

THE FREDDIE METER
People love singing with Freddie Mercury, but can you sing like Freddie too? We made an AI-powered singing challenge to find out. This experiment uses new, on-device machine learning models developed by Google Research to see how close your timbre, pitch, and melody are to Freddie’s. Your audio doesn’t get uploaded to servers to be analyzed, so your vocals stay private.
FreddieMeter was made with The Mercury Phoenix Trust, a charity founded by Brian May, Roger Taylor, and their manager Jim Beach in memory of Freddie Mercury, who died in 1991 from AIDS-related causes.
In the last 27 years, the Trust has funded over 1,000 projects across 56 countries in the global battle against HIV/AIDS, giving away over $17 million.



THE RUNWAY PALETTE
We came together with The Business of Fashion to view their collection of 140,000 photos of runway looks from almost 4,000 fashion shows around the world. If you could attend one fashion show per day, it would take you more than 10 years to see them all. This experiment makes this library easy and fun to explore in one single visualization. By extracting the main colors of each look, we used machine learning to organize the images by color palette, resulting in an interactive experiment of four years of fashion by almost 1,000 designers. Everyone can now discover not just the seasons, designers and colors, but also the trends that come from Fashion Weeks worldwide. You can even snap or upload a picture of, let’s say, your closet, or autumn leaves, and discover how designers used a similar color palette in fashion.
