Where:
11th floor large conference room
This event is open to the public.
Type:
AI Seminar
Speaker:
Eran Hadas
Description:

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.
