Telescope for Android

Developer's Description

Overcome writers block with Telescope a Google Docs Add-on and Android App combo that uses machine learning and your own feet to take you out into the world and inspire you.

Getting started:

Enable the Telescope Add-on in Google docs

Give us the name and description of a character youre working on

Download the Telescope app

Get away from your desk with a pair of headphones on

Bookmark anything you like the sound of

Get back to your desk where youll find all of your bookmarks magically back in the Add-on

Use your bookmarks to shake up youre writing!

Telescope uses your phones camera to recognise objects you walk past, points of interest surrounding you using GPS, up to the minute weather and the time of day to seed the GPT-2 language model. Using text-to-voice, the app speaks back unexpected ideas that use machine learning to combine your character name and description with your phones sensors. The results could be poignant, banal, topical or down-right hilarious. Anything you bookmark will be fed back into the system to give you similar responses.

Developed in collaboration between Googles Creative Lab in Sydney and Sandpit.
