Meet up

Anti-Songs, Nonsense and Gibberish: Computer Generated Writing

Thursday, 20th July at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by Algorithmic Art in July 2017

Anti-Songs, Nonsense and Gibberish: Computer Generated Writing

Natural language - unruly, messy, ambiguous .. but also fun, inspiring and beautiful - is a challenge for computers to deconstruct and understand.

We're lucky to have Céline Boudier, known for her inspiring work on CodeforLife and the impressive NAO robot at Aldebaran (Softbank Robotics Europe), introduce us to the surprisingly simple algorithms for generating realistic text.

She'll explain and demonstrate:

• generating gibberish and half-gibberish texts with methods such as Markov Chains

• inverting texts to create "anti-songs"

• generating surreal poems

• a live demo of a talking NAO robot to enact some of the created text

Céline Boudier

I'm a software/robotics engineer who likes to write and read, to learn and create.
