Introducing our speaker Andreas Bock Michelsen

We are proud to introduce Andreas Bock Michelsen as one of our speakers whose talk has the title: “Fractal Poetry: How to use a machine for something it can’t do”.

Machines are almost by definition incapable of using language the way humans do. So how can we use them for creating original works of poetry, and more importantly, why would we? In this talk we delve into the concept of fractal poetry, why we need computers to write it, and why sometimes inspiration is more important than skill.

Andreas is a hobby programmer, an amateur pianist and has a physics degree from Aarhus University in Denmark. Currently he does research on the quantum theory of materials and ultracold gases as a PhD student at the University of Luxembourg.
