How the A.I. Behind Twitter’s Odd @DeepDrumpf is Making Donald Trump Great Again

Bradley Hayes, a postdoctoral associate at MIT who does robotics research, just turned Donald “Drumpf” Trump into a robot. He programmed a recurrent neural network — an artificial intelligence — to study and emulate the Republican-ish candidate’s speeches. Hayes’s “day job,” he says, is “research focused on human-robot teaming: designing algorithms that let robots work together with and learn from humans so that humans can be safer, more efficient, more effective at their jobs. @DeepDrumpf is a “side project.” He drew inspiration, in part, from John Oliver’s “fantastic sketch,”. (“Hopefully he’ll see this — hopefully he’ll see this and appreciate it.”) Inverse spoke with Hayes about this patriotic endeavor. What else inspired you to make @DeepDrumpf? It came about from a lunchtime conversation with some colleagues of mine that also…
