- Sat 2619:00-20:00
Workshop that uses artificial intelligence to reproduce a conversation of someone that you love or loved based on a chat data. The workshop is for people interested in artificial intelligence but doesn’t have any experience with programming at all. People have to provide an huge amount of chat data of a person that they really love or doesn’t love anymore. This can be Facebook Messenger data or iMessage data. They can just bring their phone or we use Facebook to get the data. After people provide their data we learn how to reproduce this conversation by a computer between the 2 people based on real data. The sentences are most of the time a bit funny but you can recognize yourself in the conversation.
Free admission, please note limited spaces available.
