Apples and Snakes Presents... (in association with pucker poets and Open Mouth Poetry hosted by Bryony Chave-Cox)
Dan Simpson 'Artificial Ineloquence'
Stand-up poet Dan Simpson (Glastonbury Festival, Canterbury Laureate) focuses his high-speed fuzzy logic on the screens and machines that rule over our lives. As the robots rise and deep learning AIs threaten to take over the world, can humanity survive in a world of cutting-edge technology? An electric show of computer generated jokes, emoji poetry and selfie stick performance from BBC Fringe Slam finalist Dan Simpson.
