The Oral Poetics project (2019—) is focused on how we can model remarkable oral poetic practices, and oral creativity, in a way that is rooted in orature, instead of being based (for instance) on corpora of written, literate-culture documents. We aim to develop computational systems that can improvise in oral exchanges with people. The project is in very early stages, having just begun in 2019. We expect to have something to share by Summer 2019.
