Marc
Andreessen published his “Why Software Is Eating the World” essay in The Wall
Street Journal eight years ago. Blockbusters, cabs and hotels went down into
the tummies of Netflix, Uber and Airbnb. Yummy yummy. The social media ate
politics and defecated Trump and brexit. Nom nom nom.

Our
everyday life is shaped by new technologies and algorithms. Theatre has been
quick to make use of new techs and now it is time for theatre to eat social
media and artificial intelligence. Art must help human being to face the innovations
that devours everything.

The course
will take a look at performing arts that makes use of social media and
artificial intelligence. Students will be able to attach to the APIs of social
media and artificial intelligence. During the course students will design and
put in practice a small application that uses these new technologies. The aim
of the course is to open and expose the view and possibilities intended for
software developers to artistic thinking.

No special
technical skills required.
