Improbotics Online is an artificial intelligence and communications technology-powered online improv comedy show, performed live by an international troupe from four countries, coordinated by a Virtual Director. Some of us are controlled by robots running artificial intelligence chatbots: will they pass the Turing Test? We explore how physically distant actors can communicate and seamlessly perform while controlled by a machine. Our impossible (and hilarious) challenge relies on absurdism, misunderstanding and human connection.
