    Your memory, connected



    “Your memory, connected” is a series of three images generated by a net.art generator we designed and implemented with natural language processing and common sense reasoning techniques developed at MIT Media Laboratory. One of the series “Shall I compare thee with a summer’s day” is shown in Siggrah Art Gallery 2006. This “Art Talk” paper describes the concept behind the art work and the system architecture for implementation.
