Optimized poetry: Text generation for humans and machines

In the epoch of network, text is:

  1. a)    Digital data
  2. b)    Merchandize.

New textual regime generates new literary practices.

Machines are reading and writing, companies are developing dictionaries as private databases, while words are being statistically analyzed, ranked, estimated and sold. Algorithms read the word “game” as an indicator of emotion of joy, at the same time the word “poetry” in today’s search engine market is worth 164.56 RSD.

At the workshop you will have the opportunity to use these and similar algorithms to calculate how much the poetry costs, to write the most expensive poem or create tactical texts to trick the emotion recognition software.
