Sleepy Computer is a podcast where the computer writes jokes for our brain (with music). We use AI on artificial computers that give "brain stories", and we read out the random stories while the music plays - using the same algorithm that's writing this paragraph.

We call it "Sleepy Computer" because the random computer-made jokes are similar to the ones that humans make when we're dreaming. Each episode, it will randomly generate a new story.

    It's a new series, and time for a new story - a tale of meringue, subsidised primary school milk, and Len Goodman.

    Sleepy Computer is a podcast where the computer writes jokes for our brain. We use AI on artificial computers that give "brain stories", and we read out the  random stories while  the music plays - using the same algorithm that's writing this paragraph. In today’s episode the music was written by Blue Dot Sessions. We call it "Sleepy Computer" because the  random computer-made  jokes are similar to the ones that humans  make when we're dreaming. Each episode, it will  randomly generate  a  new story. We're told  by the computer what to say next, and although we do not dictate the topic or the  meaning of the story, we'll selectively delete bad ideas or  sentences if we think  they're not funny anymore or they take us too far from the original  story. The stories are about 90% generated by the computer itself, and  our 10% input is mainly grammar.

    1x08 - Widget Frenzy

    [more NSFW than usual, bad language, sexual themes] Finally we're tackling the laugh-a-minute world of weird business books with a fictional background plot. Can John deliver more widgets more quickly? Will he ever leave his absolutely obnoxious family that are definitely holding him back? What does a French Horn sound like anyway? If you enjoyed this episode you should sent it to the most businessy person you know; similarly if you've received a link to this episode it's because the person who sent it to you greatly values your business acumen.

    1x07 - The Justice Tombola

    We're excited to get our hands on a new version of the AI, and we're using it to great effect this week in creating a new murder mystery story. Can a famous detective get to the bottom of things? Can a guest resist eating everyone? Will we get to chant Chase the Sun? These are all valid questions.

    1x06 - People only ever send me chocolate

    1x06 - People only ever send me chocolate

    We revisit the genre that started it all - a police procedural - and this time there's a smattering of underwear in a window, a completely unresolved romantic subplot, and an immersive cinema experience.

    1x05 - Humpback Jack and the Story of Who He Is

    We're joined by @ceeraanoo for a child's fantasy tale - although it's not necessarily suitable for children - in which the Scottish have their own variant of football, a voluptuous sea creature gets his way, and almost the entire episode is about fish again.
