The Grid

In-development blogging platform uses AI to automatically design your website, automatically rearranging your blogs design around the content you add to it - video embedded below:

This is not another do-it-yourself website builder. The Grid harnesses the power of artificial intelligence to take everything you throw at it - videos, images, text, urls and more - and automatically shape them into a custom website unique to you. As your needs grow, it evolves with you, effortlessly adapting to your needs. Want to add e-commerce? Social feeds? A different layout? The Grid just takes care of it. This is not a website builder. This is your personal AI web developer. Its first masterpiece is the website you’re looking at right now. Its next one could be yours.

Aiming for a Spring 2015 release, the service will charge for a yearly subscription, but claims that any of the data generated will belong to you.

Julia Christensen (2013 Emerging Fields) is making DIY projectors out of discarded iPhones. In this video, she introduces her project “Burnouts,” which is part of a series of works supported by Creative Capital that explore our cultural relationship with e-waste.
