Rodolfo is a creative technologist, engineer, artist and researcher from Mexico. He is currently a PhD candidate at the UNSW School of Art and Design, researching humans and AI can collaborate in creative activities.
He originally came to Australia after receiving a scholarship to participate in an experimental masters program at the ANU, to study the development of safe, sustainable and responsible AI-enabled systems. His research explores how to enable creative interaction between humans and AI systems.
As part of this process, Rodolfo created Narrative Device, a viral app that has been used more than 2 million times to generate stories using GPT-3. He is currently finishing an interactive sound installation enabled by generative language and pose recognition models, which will be housed in a new building in Canberra. He recently exhibited the first artwork generated using Dall-E 2 at a gallery exhibition in Australia.
Additionally to his PhD and creative practice, Rodolfo currently works at the CSIRO developing machine learning tools for environmental monitoring in collaboration with traditional owners and Indigenous rangers. Before coming to Australia, Rodolfo worked at Google for two years.
