AI for Media & Storytelling (AIMS)

An Initiative of the USC Center for Generative AI & Society

Welcome to AIMS: Artificial Intelligence for Media & Storytelling

Motivated by the idea that stories and cultures shape each other – and that each era’s storytelling reflects its technologies – AIMS is collaboration between USC’s School of Cinematic Arts and the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism committed to experimenting with, inventing, studying, teaching, and debating the power of artificial intelligence for media and storytelling.
