Artificial Intelligence Improvisation
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Albert is a lovable nerd who dreams of the big stage. Mylez is an outgoing hacker with a dark sense of humour. Lonely, but resourceful, they have built themselves a friend called A.L.Ex (Artificial Language Experiment) " a small robot running state-of-the-art artificial intelligence that learns to communicate and act by reading one hundred thousand movie scripts. Relying on speech recognition, an AI dialogue system, voice synthesis and robotics, A.L.Ex comes to life. Albert, Mylez and A.L.Ex team up to weave a futuristic improvised exploration of what it means to be human, based on your suggestions.

HumanMachine (, the international creative team behind the show, invites you to explore human and computer creativity, spontaneity and "artificial irreverence" (Sunday Times).
