Some time around 2016 I was invited by Kasia Boddy and David Winters to contribute to a special issue of Critical Quarterly that they were putting together. The issue was centred on notions of authorship in the digital age. This came at an opportune time as I had been playing with training a recurrent neural network on the back corpus of the literary studies journal, Textual Practice, and had some promising results. I felt I could definitely turn this weekend hobbyist project into something of broader interest.
