It was wonderful to be able to take the theories we’ve learned in our classes and to be able to use them to build something concrete. It required us to communicate, to collaborate and to be creative, which are skills we’ll use for the rest of our lives”

Info for Current Students

I was fascinated, and honestly a little bit scared, of the idea that a computer could generate poetry. Creativity is something that tends to be associated with emotions and inspiration, and if artificial intelligence can persuade us that it is as emotional or inspired as us this will definitely affect people and the way that they see literature, the arts, and maybe even the world”
