For your problem:

i. write a detailed description of the problem (no more than one paragraph)

ii. create a visual representation/sketch for the problem (hand drawn preferred)

iii. create a vialogue that will help participants better understand the problem (add the #upCREATION in the title).

Be prepared to present your group's "wicked" problem to everyone.

Check out this story about DeepDrumpf, the Donald Trump bot. Bradley Hayes, the MIT researcher who created it, used a recurrent neural network to build the Trump simulator.

I look forward to the creation of the TCR poetry bot (to be build this summer by one of the Learning Theater interns).
