Ephemera

A Fake News Poetry Workshop, entitled "Algorithms as Pets and Politicians," took place at the Dartmouth College DHSE on February 25, 2019 with the support of Jacque Wernimont. Led by Orr Menirom and Kyle Booten, who had themselves met at at the Ammerman Workshop a year previously, this session focused upon literacy concerning the "design of machine learning systems as an artistic question. In a hands-on activity, participants interacted with a web-based “pet” algorithm,training it to embody certain political or philosophical views." Poems spoken by our bots, taught to speak using the words of select others, can be found under "Poems," to the left.
