For our project, we are proposing to create a European Literature Essay Generator. To put it simply, we want to create a program that enables users to generate an essay on their chosen subject, that draws upon leading scholars in the field of Electronic Literature.
The purpose of our project is not to facilitate academic laziness. It is intended as an exhibition, demonstrating the power of machine to 'think' in academic terms. It is effectively an artistic installation, exploring the role of the computer as an intellectual peer.
