AI is a groundbreaking play that represents a unique collaboration between human and artificial intelligence. Directed by Jennifer Tang and developed with Chinonyerem Odimba and Nina Segal, this play uses the deep-learning system GPT-3 to generate human-like dialogue and script.
Here are three key features of this innovative project
- Collaborative Creation: The play is a result of a unique collaboration between Genesis Fellow and Associate Director Jennifer Tang, a company of writers and actors, and the AI system GPT-3. This collaboration has resulted in a new work for the stage.
- AI-Generated Dialogue: The play uses the deep-learning system GPT-3 to generate human-like dialogue and script. This AI system has been praised as ‘one of the most interesting and important AI systems ever produced’ and has demonstrated its ability to generate prose and news articles indistinguishable from those written by a human.
- Hybrid of Research and Performance: This project is not just a play, but a unique hybrid of research and performance. The script, along with insights into how the artists collaborated with the AI system, is brought to life by the writers, actors, and company across a series of evenings. This unique approach prompts us to consider the algorithms at work in the world around us and what technology can teach us about ourselves.
