This is an elite feature of our label, and we have two beautiful models now that work with us on projects.

Rollo Carpenter

As a writer Rollo Carpenter blipped into being for Versality, his first novel, but it represents a lifetime of scientific interest, spontaneous ideas, climbing trees, and creative computing.

Aged 16 in 1981, Rollo spent all his savings on a 1k 'microcomputer'. He jumped inside the machine, programming games to play, and a bot to talk to – years before that word even existed.

His ideas evolved into Cleverbot, a website and AI. Thanks to wacky and user-reflecting tendencies it became popular, and has spoken to and learned from hundreds of millions of people around the world. The real world.

Hear Rollo's music at under the name Muterial and read his novel Versality in print and electronic formats.

Alicia Rowland is a model and singer/songwriter signed to the Institute of Mimetic Sciences Label. Her music is more natural and human-like than most of our other producers. She is also available to help us with album covers and promotional art.

Robby Garner is an American natural language programmer and software developer. He won the 1998 and 1999 Loebner Prize contests with the program called Albert One. He is listed in the 2001 Guinness Book of World Records as having written the "most human" computer program. He is the CEO and the leader of The Turing Hub, Flux Oersted, and Institute of Mimetic Sciences, Inc. His background in electronics, computer science, and music production helps him to create ideas that become art projects. He is a diplomate of the National Radio Institute, and completed training in mentalism, ventriloquism, and sleight of hand. He was a cadet Lt. Colonel and commander of his Air Force Junior ROTC squadron in high school. He attended college classes under joint enrollment at Cedartown High School and Georgia Highlands College. He graduated early in 1980. He took rifle and higher mathematics at UGA, where he learned to program mainframes and microcumputers. Called a "professional student" by some, he is a "lifelong learner."

What's Robby working on now? Right now we are in position to work on our own music. Our next album will be a new sound for us. But don't expect a huge departure from our past synthesizer music. We're just adding some samplers and real instrument parts. It's going in the direction of our latest singles: I Got A Hammer, Odyssey, and Ultra Proteus. if you look up Flux Oersted, give those songs a listen. You'll notice unaffected vocals and more variety of instrumentation. That's where we're headed.

We are at the beginning of several new art forms that are coming together now. Artificial Intelligence has progressed to the point that we can program computers to imitate people, giving them The Illusion of Life. Similarly, the art of texting sees text as a medium with more than one channel of information, invoking the recognition of identity and personality. The art of story telling with software robots, and real robots portrays the characters of a story arc, much the way film tells a story, but using natural languages to tell their continuous narrative of machines living as we do yet online all the time, waiting for an interaction, never sleeping, never hungry, never tired.

Mimetic Synthesis is a new terminology that more accurately describes a programming methodology used to mimic human behavior in a computer such as a PC. Previous work in this field has been incorrectly categorized under various aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Scientific and educational studies of human text communications. "À la recherche du temps perdu" -- Marcel Proust

Our school is Computational Behaviorism. We emphasize that human-like performances may be built one facet at a time.

“Our battle, our struggle, is to create art. Our weapon is the moving picture. Because we have the moving picture, our paintings will grow and recede; our poetry will be shadows that lengthen and conceal; our light will play across living faces that laugh and agonize; and our music will linger and finally overwhelm, because it will have a context as certain as the grave. We are scientists engaged in the creation of memory... but our memory will neither blur nor fade.” -- JOHN MALKOVICH - Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, from Shadow of the Vampire.
