Abstract

Do generators have politics? What about generators that generate around people, with people, or even create generative people. This paper proposes four initial sites of inquiry that deserve further attention from this community, or at least those members who find themselves building a person-generator: Characters who engage socially with people, generators which make use of data created by or about people, the use of cultural and social signifiers in generators, and simulations or models which represent people.
