Honey, I Turned The Poems Into A Recurrent Neural Network: A Short Evening of Computer-Generated Poetry
On this auspicious evening, students from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program will read their computer-generated poetry aloud before a delighted audience (that's you!). To be presented are a number of vital contemporary poetic forms, including neural network biblical gibberish, PowerPoint presentations from stochastic processes, instructions for generating instructions for generating instructions, deeply plausible computer-imagined artist statements, human-assisted machine translations, and oh, chatbots of all types and varieties.
This event is part of the final project requirements for Reading and Writing Electronic Text, a class at ITP that combines an introduction to the Python programming language with an introduction to conceptual and experimental poetry. More information about the class can be fou
