Work From Home Tips

AI-generated work from home tips

"Put all your energy into ten small eggs."

"Turn poetry into meaningless ice."

"Stand around for 5 minutes. Actually stand. Become a skeleton."

This collaboration with Tiny Giant was for a project to create some fun AI-generated work from home tips. For more info see work-from-home-tips.netlify.app


AI Gin

Monker's Garkel, the world's first AI-created gin

"Juniper berries, coriander seed, angelica root, prune, gooseberry, raspberry leaf, clementine zest, orange zest and marigold flowers. These were my playful decisions."

This collaboration with Tiny Giant was for a project to create the world's first AI-generated gin. For more info see aigin.io

This project won Bronze for Best Use Of AI at the 2020 DMA Awards!


Giving a talk about AI generated poetry

Poetry generated by machine learning

For World Poetry Day 2019 I built a recurrent neural network (RNN) to generate poetry in the style of Sylvia Plath

This collaboration with Tiny Giant was for the "PLaiTH: An AI World-First Poetry" event. For more info see plaith.com


AIDI - the AI curator for the Cheltenham Science Festival

AI guest curator for the Cheltenham Science Festival

What happens when artificial intelligence is tasked with putting together a science festival?

This collaboration with Tiny Giant was for a project to create an "AI curator" for the Cheltenham Science Festival.

This project won Gold for Best Use Of AI at the 2019 DMA Awards!


AI cocktails

AI cocktails - cocktail recipes generated by a neural network

I collaborated with Tiny Giant on a project to create an AI tool that would generate cocktail recipes.

I created and trained a char-rnn Recurrent Neural Network using Textgenrnn and TensorFlow, running on Google Colaboratory.

People enjoying our AI cocktails

We fed it with hundreds of cocktail recipes, and trained the model until it output some usable (but slightly weird) recipes.

Then we partnered with a cocktail bar to actually make the cocktail! They were delicious (and very alcoholic!), and there are lots of photos on the Tiny Giant instagram account.

I gave a talk about the creative and technical process at I'll Be Back South West (February 2018). For more info, see aicocktails.com.
