Can algorithms create “human-quality” short stories, sonnets and limericks? The competition is to determine whether people can distinguish between human and algorithmic creativity. The goal is not to replace human creativity, but to assess whether current computational technology can produce outputs that cannot be distinguished from it.
Alan Turing is of course rather far from being unknown. His roles in laying the foundations of computer science and in devising a machine method for breaking into the Enigma cipher at Bletchley Park are prominent in the popular imagination. This talk will look at some of the lesser known aspects of his life and work.
Turing Tests in the Creative Arts – http://www.turingtests.com The Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College is pleased to announce the first annual Neukom Institute Prizes in Computational Arts. These competitions aim to inspire innovations in computational methods that generate artistic products, such as literary, musical, and visual art. Neukom Institute will run three different competitions in 2016: DigiLit … Read More
