Chatbot
Theater / Arts numériques / Creation

Engineer and director Nicolas Zlatoff stages a theatrical experiment in which human beings and an artificial intelligence (AI) device improvise and perform together.

Thanks to the progress made recently in the field of deep learning (the ability of an AI device to learn), neuronal computer networks can automatically generate text. In Chatbot, actors and programmers work together to build and represent an AI device that can improvise with a human partner the same way another actor would.
