HCI/AI Researcher

I am John Joon Young Chung, and I will join Midjourney as a research scientist from September 2023.

I am interested in turning AI/ML models into useful tools for artists and storytellers, by opening up diverse ways to interact with these technologies and introducing new types of media.

I myself is an amateur artist, creating some random things, from drawings to musics, which you can find in my Instagram. Some selected tunes can be found here. I also used to build some games with my friends.
