March 2006 - IntelligentDesigner ®
What do you get when you combine probablistic programming paradigms,
computers with feelings and a room full of the gifted and talented?
Artist/Technologist/Robot Maker Jason Van Anden will demonstrate
IntelligentDesigner (beta) - software that enables pretty much anyone
to control things in an uncontrollable way. ID was originally invented
to enable improvisational behavior simulating human emotional mechanics
between his life-size emotive robots
Neil and Iona. In its current
incarnation, ID can be used to easily create rich multilayered living
music from samples, with many more esoteric applications coming down
the pike. Jason will be presenting ID on May 3rd at the
where he hopes to get feedback of ID beta from the Dorkbot ranks
and recruit some early adopters to start making things with it before
its official release, next Fall.
