What are Infinite Monkeys?

Chimpanzee typing on a keyboard

The Infinite Monkey Theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter for an infinite amount of time will eventually type the complete works of William Shakespeare. Playing around with GPT-3 for the first time, we wondered, "How is it possible that an AI can generate such rich narratives?" But if a monkey can do it, then obviously a computer can too 😜.

Who we are

Eric and Matt met in high school journalism class and coincidentally ended up as software engineers. With a shared love of storytelling and technology, they were wowed by the creative capibilities of generative AI and wanted to share the magic with more people. They just want to make people chuckle and feel excited about the future of this nascent technology. For the behind-the-scenes of how we built this, check out our blog post.
