Robby Garner and Dr. Hugh Loebner, June 2002.

Dr. David C. Hamill and Robby Garner circa 1998.

Mimetic Synthesis is the art and science of the suspension of your disbelief. We are like the shadow that follows your human pathways.


To imitate human behavior with computers. Using Computational Behaviorism (CB) we are able to take conversations between real people and recycle them into new chat from our cloud bots. We use sophisticated artificial intelligence combined with real women models and their real texts to make a very realistic personality that you can interact with.

We are available to consult on music software, equipment, Artificial Intelligence methods and cloud computing principles. Please visit our shop on Facebook to read about our current projects and product offerings.

We also make music and are an independent record label. Our music has been described as "a strange brand of synthpop with rock and industrial overtones." You can get some good deals in lossless formats like FLAC, wav, mp3 and others at Our band, Flux Oersted is famous for its post punk synth wave sound and spirit. Look for them in any place that digital music is found. Amazon, iTunes, YouTube, Spotify, and Deezer are just a few of the places where you can find our music.
