Yiran Xuan – LookingOutwards – 08

Darius Kazemi programs and creates what are essentially meme machines, automated generators of jokes based off of a defined format and filling in the blanks using ConceptNet, a program that links words with each other by their meaning. Kazemi’s projects are interesting as they allow our senses of humor, which we take to be organic and characteristic of human nature, to be emulated by machines; some of the examples generated by his bots are quite funny even.
