Reverie - an inspirational image-based platform that empowers people to explore their surroundings through the lens of artificial intelligence.

Reverie is a new way of seeing; it empowers people to interpret a starry night as Van Gogh did without being crazy.


Thanks to the ubiquity of smartphone cameras, we are creating digital photographs more than ever before. In the meantime, we are left with increasing quantities of metadata that have very little meaning to us.


Reverie is an image-based platform that promotes creativity by giving people associative images while taking a photograph. The associative images prompts are sourced by a machine learning algorithm which challenges people's imagination. This is an augmented reality experience that enables people to engage with their world from a new point of view.


The platform primarily targets product designers, graphic designers, and photography artists. However, this application could apply to anyone who has a curious mind, especially young professionals and students to be more critical and reflective about the world surrounding them.


A significant anount of data contributed to the system will form a digital humanities archive that preserves, as well as transforms the culture of our world.
