Walt Disney Imagineering's Research & Development organization is building a new A.I. Character Studio to allow Guests and our beloved characters to share new interactive experiences and stories. The team comprises a cross-disciplinary group of designers, writers, artists, and software engineers. Its charter includes developing a robust and scalable entertainment platform supporting interactive character experiences with up to millions of concurrent users. The studio develops mobile, VR, AR, Mixed Reality, and custom physically situated applications built on a core platform, independently and in partnership with 3rd party developers.
We're seeking a conversation design intern to create and implement interactive conversation-based experiences for our guests. You will intern for the writing team, developing new experiences in deploying interactive characters. This is a chance to learn from some of the world-class conversation designers at Disney, pioneering this new storytelling artform using state-of-the-art AI technologies. You are open-minded, highly collaborative, flexible, and scrappy while ensuring a high degree of polish for guest-facing products and experiences. The new AI Character Studio members are expected to thrive in a fast-paced, startup-style environment where ambiguity and building things from zero to one are the norm.
