Anti-Songs, Nonsense and Gibberish: Computer Generated Writing

20th July 2017 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at 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
