The 20th century owes many of its most beautiful love stories to bureaucracy. But today, after many years of working from home, people have forgotten how to interact without the help of a computer screen. The birth rate is plunging dramatically, and humanity faces extinction. How to make love great again? PRAAB (Programme de Réhabilitation à l’Amitié et l’Amour par le Bureau) is here to help. Use an AI-enhanced video platform to relearn physical interaction before venturing back into real-life workspace. Remember how to politely accept a mug of coffee or swap fun facts and, maybe, how find to other people attractive again at some point. Watch tutorials and decide on what path you will take …. The sci-fi training platform developed by  Chrystèle Nicot and Antoine Alesandrini questions both the discarded office culture we all still know from films and books and the new algorithmic training forms already available on the Internet today.
