Artificial Intelligence Improvisation
Will the robot pass the improv comedy Turing test?
Suitable for Age 12 +
Award-winning theatre troupe Improbotics presents Artificial Intelligence Improvisation, a tech-infused improv and science comedy show.
Human actors join artificial intelligence robots on a surreal trip in augmented reality, where the robots literally take control of the show. Some improvisers are controlled by artificial intelligence chatbots: will they pass the Turing Test?
"Groundbreaking work" with "superb moments of comedy" that "poses serious philosophical questions" (Fringe Review 2022). Improbotics has been featured on the BBC, in the New York Times and New Scientist.
