Oracle AI | Kordspace
A couple of months ago, I was really lucky to get a new UX/UI/visual design contract gig at Kordspace, a web and app development agency.
I’m geeked out to be entering the UX/UI world. I have so much to learn from my new boss, Marco Lopes. He’s a wizard when it comes to IT and design and is helping to build my coding and back-end systems skills. My main role is developing production screens for mobile apps and websites, but sometimes there’s a unique project.
I was super excited when Marco brought a typewriter to the office one day. He’d just finished developing an AI system that creates poetry. A human needs to type the first line and then the code will follow the prompt. Viola!
The process was surprisingly tedious. After the poem was generated, I took the poem into Google Docs and began formatting it on an 8×10-inch template with 1-inch margins. Then, I measured the content and mapped it out with a pencil on a blank piece of paper. Everything needed to be perfectly aligned. It took several trials to get used to pounding at the keys. I kept looking for a backspace button out of habit!
Below is my favorite one:
Several other honorable mentions:
While doing this process, I started thinking about the future impacts of AI in society. What will the ramifications be of more advanced technology? I believe that the ability to be creative is uniquely human, and AI is starting to change that.
