Markovian Parallax Generate: On digital writing and poetics

Adventures in AI

Posted in Personal by Eric Goddard-Scovel on February 15, 2008

So I’m part way through an introductory course in artificial intelligence.  I’ve got no practical programming experience, its a 400 level electrical engineering course, and I’m a grad student in English; all a recipe for fun and success!  Wish me luck.

It sounds kind of glamorous if you’re not aware of what artificial intelligence really means at this low level, and it isn’t robots and computers having conversations with you.  Mostly, I’m using it to get into the field of computer science and to learn some tools to use in future computational poetry projects.  I couldn’t tell you if this will take me somewhere in the future, but it’s fun in a math geek sort of way, and I have a hardon for logical structures.  Ha!

If anything more interesting or relevant comes out of this, I’ll let you know.  Right now I’m just trying to keep up.
