Is it possible to co-write a play with an item of Artificial Intelligence?

Ben Ramsay, 21

My entry explores the possibilities of using Artificial Intelligence in storytelling, particularly play-writing. The piece was co-written by myself and an Amazon Alexa device, I wrote the dialogue for the human characters and used the Alexa’s responses to my character’s questions and programming to craft dialogue for the android character as well as using my own conversations with the device as a tool for structuring the story. The result is an hour long stage play co-authored by a human and a household device.
