HCI/AI Researcher

I am John Joon Young Chung, and a research scientist working at Midjourney storytelling team.

I am interested in turning AI/ML models into useful tools for creative activities, specifically for storytelling. I focus on 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.
