                   Edinburgh Fringe Festival as we know it did not go
                   ahead. But there were years of previous programmes
                   stored in the digital vaults. The Bot, an
                   artificial neural network, went to work on these
                   data, compiling the world's first AI-generated
                   event blurbs for a virtual arts festival of
                   comedy, plays, musicals, and cabaret. We present
                   the compiled outputs of the LTSM RNN here, for
                   your delight.   Access to the Edinburgh Festivals
                   Listings API, and permission for creative (non-
                   profit) reuse of previous programme information,
                   was granted with kind permission from the
                   Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society. In a pre-
                   Covid19 world, ImprovBot received small project
                   funding from the Edinburgh Futures Institute, in
                   conjunction with the Data Driven Innovation
                   program of the Edinburgh and South East Scotland
                   City Region Deal, with additional resources from
                   the Edinburgh Centre for Data, Culture and
                   Society, and Creative Informatics. For more
