Literary Creative Turing Tests 2018
The deadline for entries is May 15th, 2018, by 11:59PM GMT.


PoetiX – For the third consecutive year, we will be running our
machine-generated sonnet challenge PoetiX. Entries can work from a noun
prompt or can generate work based on some other mechanism. Regardless, the
machine will need to have the ability to produce effectively an infinite
number of sonnets. The machine will need to generate either Shakespearean
or Petrarchan sonnets. Outputs of the PoetiX entries will be mixed among
human sonnets and judges will be asked to label the sonnets as generated
by human or machine. Any machine that is indistinguishable from the human
poetry will have “passed a Turing Test”.

First Prize: 1000$


LimeriX – This is a new challenge for the creation of machine-generated
limericks. Entries can work from a noun prompt or can generate limericks
based on some other mechanism. Regardless, the machine will need to have
the ability to produce effectively an infinite number of limericks.
Outputs of the LimeriX entries will be mixed among human limericks and
judges will be asked to label the sonnets as generated by human or
machine. Any machine that is indistinguishable from the human poetry will
have “passed a Turing Test”.

First Prize: 1000$


LyriX – This is an “Open Format / Literary Metacreation” challenge.
Entries can work from a noun prompt or can generate an original short poem
based on some other mechanism. Regardless, the machine will need to have
the ability to produce effectively an infinite number of poems. Entries
cannot exceed 30 lines and cannot exceed 80 characters per line. Poems
will be evaluated for their “artistry”. All entries to PoetiX and
LimeriX will automatically be entered in Lyrix.

First Prize: 1000$


DigiKidLit – This new challenge is to generate a Children's Story. Ages
5-8. Entries will take a noun phrase prompt or use some other mechanism to
generate an original, short children’s story. Regardless, the machine
will need to have the ability to produce effectively an infinite number of
children’s stories. Paradigmatic example, "Alexander and the Terrible,
Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day"
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0689300727
Stories will be evaluated for their “artistry” and creative approach.

First Prize: 1000$


All entries must be accompanied by a two-page description of the approach.

Complete details will soon be announced on the Turing Tests in the
Creative Arts webpage. Interested parties should go there

to register for the mailing list. Any questions can be directed to Dan Rockmore at

Again, the deadline for entries is May 15th, 2018, by 11:59PM GMT.
