Since 1972 Joseph Barrows has been training a general-purpose neural network to, among other things, create works of art. The neural network composed this text, in collaboration with GPT2 and GPT3 (openai.com). Source inputs have ranged from formal Arts training (care of the University of Tasmania) to anecdotal informal experiences.
