Dr. Josh Eisenberg

I am the Director of Artie's NFT + AI Laboratory.


Before Artie, I researched my Ph.D. dissertation on computational understanding of narrative structure, at Florida International University's School of Computing and Information Sciences.

Research Interests

I research the computational understanding of narrative and conversational dialogue. I use these findings to make fun video games and dynamic NFTs.
I also research the computational generation of musical improvisation. I also make music and sounds.
