11th floor large conference room
This event is open to the public.
AI Seminar
Eran Hadas

This talk will provide an introduction to Computational literature as an intersection between Natural Language Processing and Computational (Artificial) Creativity. It will feature examples of computer-generated texts, and showcase some rule-based, statistical and neural network based techniques.

Eran Hadas is an Israeli poet, software developer, and new media artist, the author of seven books. He creates hypermedia poetry and develops software-based poetry generators. Among his collaborative projects are a headset that generates poems from brainwaves, and a documentarian robot that interviews people about the meaning of being human. Hadas is a visiting scholar at Caltech, where he is teaching Computational Literature.
