The PhD project is composed of two parts: a creative project (thirty-five per cent of the total research project); and an exegesis (sixty-five per cent). The creative project employs a pair of chat-bots, natural language processing artificial intelligence agents, to act as comedian and straight-man in a comedy performance based on a topic supplied by the user in a web-based interface. This is an interdisciplinary project that draws on the domains of humour theory, creativity theory, creative writing, and human-computer interaction theory to illuminate the practice of comedy scriptwriting process in a new-media environment.
