It’s Moogfest season here in Durham, so there’s been a lot of the discussion in the office around music, data lakes, and the heat map we’re building for the festival. But the conversation took a different turn, thanks to a tweet.
Many months ago when I was at IBM Insight, I tweeted a snide remark about computer-generated jokes. Fast-forward to this week, when former “Monk” and Letterman writer Joe Toplyn responded with a link “proving” that computers could generate jokes that were funny … at least to the easily amused. Amid the discussion, someone drove by playing crappy autotune pop music.
