Hamlet or Self Portrait as a Robot uses artificial intelligence as a self portrait of the collective conscious. I have taken transcripts of conversations between myself and an artificially intelligent chatbot named Cleverbot (cleverbot.com) and created a narrative. Cleverbot is a conversational text interface based on machine learning. It's objective is to learn from it's communication with people over the web and build a database of dialogue so that it can appear more human in it's speech. In our conversations it became clear to me that not only was Cleverbot learning better discourse, but it was also becoming a reflection of our society. Over the course of the film, Cleverbot and I explore themes of existence, creation, God, and reality, among others relating to the human condition.
