Red Dwarf A.I. Toaster Speaks from Shoreditch

Share Article

London based IT support company celebrates latest series of Red Dwarf and trains engineers at the same time by powering a chatbot from a toaster.

We're extremely devoted to our engineers' development and this project afforded them a great learning experience and a huge amount of fun at the same time. To tie it into the whole Red Dwarf theme and power it from an Argos toaster is even better!

Earlier in the year the engineering team at Lucidica took on the challenge of creating an 'Artificial Intelligence' to talk to people visiting their website. A few months later, and coinciding with Red Dwarf's return to our TVs, they have launched a virtual intelligence powered from a toaster - in the style of the Talkie Toaster from Red Dwarf. If you want to see their challenge and how they did it, or to talk to Talkie himself, check out the link below.

Thomas Jeffs, the company's Chief Technology Officer, said "We're extremely devoted to our engineers' development and this project afforded them a great learning experience and a huge amount of fun at the same time.
