(a) Our story generator Magic Realism Bot (2015) and its gallery installation at Somerset House, London (2016) . It has won commendation in The New Yorker; Dazed; Slate, Quartz; Fusion; TheNextWeb; Asymptote; and others.
(b) Philosophy generator TheoryBot, to be launched mid-2017, was demoed in pre-beta form at Crossroads In Cultural Studies in late 2016. It
These two projects build on a sequence of software and hardware devices created by the team that algorithmically generate stories in various literary forms.

(c) Fiction generator #1 (2013): a proof-of-concept entitled DataFiction v0.1. Exhibited in Newcastle’s Electrofringe, reviewed in Artshub.
