>The Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College is
>pleased to announce the first annual Neukom Institute Prizes in
>Computational Arts. These competitions aim to inspire innovations in
>computational methods that generate artistic products, such as
>literary, musical, and visual art.
>- The "DigiLit" prize competition encourages the creation of algorithms
> able to produce a "human-level" short story of the kind that might be
> intended for a short story collection produced in a well-regarded MfA
> program or a piece for The New Yorker. The prize seeks to reward
> algorithms that could, for example, write stories for a creative
> writing class in which students are asked to submit a new short story
> each day.
>- PoetiX is a completion in computer-generated sonnet writing. While,
> there are many forms of sonnet, for the purposes of the prize we are
> considering only "traditional" sonnets: fourteen line poems, in iambic
> pentameter, in either "Shakesperean" or "Petrarchan" form. The former
> is further characterized by an "abab cdcd efef gg" rhyme scheme, and
> the latter as an octet of rhyme scheme "abba abba" followed by a
> sestet with no fixed form.
>- "AlgoRhythms" "AlgoRhythms" is a dance music Turing test for live
> DJ-ing, co-sponsored with Dartmouth College's Program in Digital
> Musics. We will find out whether we can tell the difference between
> humans and machines when it comes to selecting the music we want to
> hear and move to.
>Submission deadline TBA (likely late 2015).
