The Mechanized Pen
Ross is not a poet. But he will discuss his experiences with writing machines and share lessons learned along the way working on projects including:
- expressive cameras
- computer-generated screenplays
- a day glo poetic lion statue
- and a novel written with a car
These and other experiments and provocations are all centered around developing new forms and interfaces for written language, enabled by machine intelligence.
Who should attend this talk: Anyone interested in computational creative writing.
Academic level: All levels / not applicable, as my talk is more about applying code to creative pursuits than academic CS.
What is the take away in this talk: Consideration of new interfaces and forms for creativity, enabled by machine intelligence.
