Albert is back to the drawing board and to intensive coding, slightly modifying the software to make it hardware fault-resilient and adding unit tests to ensure that he can reliably communicate with A.L.Ex when the computer is backstage.
These software enhancements will prove vital for the success of the AI improvisation project, and will be demonstrated in the upcoming shows and performances:
- Tuesday, 13 December 2016, at “It Takes Two”, an evening of two-provs at the Wenlock and Essex, starting at 8pm.
- Thursday, 15 December 2016, at The Nursery‘s Thursday Night Lights Improv+Jam, starting at 8pm.
- Wednesday, 11 January 2017, at the Parentheticals‘ Bracket Racket, with guest act Talking Dog, at the Star of Kings.
- Friday, 3 February 2017, as one of the artistic performances during the Late Events on Robotics at the British Academy. The theme of this specific event, starting at 6:30pm, will be: “Love, sex and marriage… with a robot?”.
- Monday, 20 March 2017, at the weekly Duck Duck Goose improv jam, at the Effra Social in Brixton and starting at 8pm.
In addition to these upcoming shows, Albert and A.L.Ex have several festival applications under review, as well as a keynote at a major developer conference in Paris in preparation.
