Call for papers: Artificial Intelligence and Poetry: “Life is beautiful” – deadline 28 January 2013

University of Exeter, UK, 2-5 April 2013

Poetry represents a valuable domain for AI, exemplifying fundamental aspects of creativity which, in the view of proponents of Lady Lovelaceís objection that computers can do nothing original, focus strongly the differences between machines and humans. Poetry also exemplifies hard problems of practical AI, in natural language generation, expressive speech and non-verbal behaviour. This one day workshop will provide strong opportunities for synergies amongst researchers and practitioners in AI, Literature, Performance Arts, Philosophy and Psychology. Explicitly excluded is human poetry about AI.

deadline: 28 January 2013
