Link to the event.

In 2019, with the beginnings of the Oupoco project on the combinatorial generation of poetry, a workshop was organised on the more general topic of poetry generation by computer. This workshop brought together speakers from different backgrounds, and also addressed the broader theme of the links between creativity and information science.
