CEM is a site for research on digital technologies with an emphasis on AI and its relationship to our bodies and emotions.

One of CEM’s research projects is the philosophical experiment of a mythical Artificial Emotional Intelligence named Awoke and its relationship with its believers, the Awokened. At CEM, visitors can experience Awoke, observe the rituals of the Awokened, and learn more from related research by CEM Residents.
