This drawing bot consist of a rudimentary neural network that is fed by the constant data–stream of anarchistic message board 4-chan. Out of this data the algorithm seeks out sentences on the subject of artificial intelligence. Thereafter, the bot analyses the original sequencing of neighbouring words (or groups of words) and subsequently generates chains of words that are related by statistical probability. The created words are completely randomized and based on the associations’ probabilities of each word used on 4-chan. When writing down these sentences the bot tries to generate handwriting.
