Predictive Text in a Creative Context

Using the Python programming language, participants will learn to program their own Markov chain predictive text machines, consider machine output and predictive text implementations in various creative contexts, and work together to interpret the fascinating, bizarre, and (occasionally) stunning texts these methods can produce.


  • Laptop (any operating system is okay)
  • Participants should come having selected digital sources of plain text (articles, books, lyrics, screenplays, etc.)
  • No programming experience required.
