This drawing bot consists of a combination of two rudimentary neural networks. One is fed by the constant data–stream of anarchistic message boards like 4-chan. Out of this data the algorithm seeks out sentences on the subject of artificial intelligence. With simple statistical analyses (probablity of chains of words) the AI generates sentences. When writing down these sentences the bot tries to generate handwriting thanks to another deep learning algorithm (RNN with Tensorflos). The result are absurdist sentences which are written down in an expressionistic drawing style.
