Artificial intelligence (AI) is being used in live comedy shows to make people laugh – so how does it work?
Improbotics is an improvised science comedy show using a chatbot alongside a human cast.
One of the actors works to type in the words spoken by the cast and manually selects the best response from a list of suggested next lines.
“Essentially you’re improvising with this really rogue element – somebody who can’t say yes to you,” said actor Sarah Castell.
In theory, if you give the chatbot a topic and a line of dialogue it should be able to give you something reasonable to say next.
