survivery 101

Over at the labs of AI Weirdness (previously) with the academic year just beginning, researcher and handler Janelle Shane wondered how a neutral network might interpret a college course catalogue and the major and minor courses of study that this virtual institution might have on offer.
While I am not sure I’d take any of these electives (though many sound pretty metaphysical and part of the core-curriculum) many of the titles have my curiosity piqued. We especially liked:

Language of Circus Processing
Marine Writing
The Sun Programpineerstance and Development

It’s well worth reviewing the whole list and see if you can figure out what human conventions the artificial intelligence is drawing from and check out Shane’s past experiments.
