Botnik’s algorithms create TV shows and Harry Potter books too hilarious to ignore

Beware the Singularity.
Robots have a long way to go before they replace artists and writers… but they’re getting closer. A collective known as Botnik is using algorithms, predictive text, and machine learning to challenge our traditional notions of art, and create some hilarious TV Guide show synopses in the process.
This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) speak with Jamie Brew, the creator of Botnik, about his ambitions to build new creativity tools for the digital age.
