A new era of natural language generation is emerging that might help people create new forms of poetry, art and wordplay as well as creating vast amounts of advertising and social content to fill every crevice of the internet. Or maybe, as some pundits have predicted, it might destroy society as we know it with weaponised, generative propaganda and fake news.
In this forum talk, Dave King will playfully explore different ways that generative language is being used in the realms of commercial creativity like advertising, design and art. Covering his company’s own experiments as well as looking at leading, global practitioners, “Am I bot or not?” will inspire, unsettle, provoke and amuse.
This forum took place on 7 August. A recording of the livestream of the talk is available below.
