Boom Chicago’s Latest Comedy Show

Boom Chicago’s sketch and improv show, The Future Is Here… And It Is Slightly Annoying, is about technology, and it also uses technology in a groundbreaking way. We create an AI improvising comedy robot that is able to learn as it performs, and it joins the cast on stage for a scene. You don’t want to miss this unique integration of technology into improv comedy.

Our machine uses a combination of natural language processing (that’s how Siri and Alexa can understand you) together with a deep neural network (trained with very specific forms of situational comedy). The goal was to develop a form of AI that knows how to improvise and act on stage with our actors. Can you use artificial intelligence to teach a robot to be funny? Will the cast of Boom Chicago still have a job after this new show? Come see.

This innovative show is a comedy exploration of technology and what it means for us humans. As artificial intelligence, big data, and face recognition go from buzzwords to real life, will this lead to a future of pleasantly targeted ads or will our robot overlords replace us at work and at home?

In the meantime, get ready to hop in your self driving car, get the latest information from the blockchain, and enjoy what has been teased for so many years and will finally arrive in 2019: virtual reality… followed shortly by virtual reality pornography. Read more about our history with technology.
