You’re about to find out.  The @DeepDrumpf Twitterbot, a project by Bradley Hayes, a postdoctoral researcher at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), is based on an artificial intelligence algorithm that uses deep-learning techniques.  A similar RNN-based project is based on Shakespeare’s works. But Trump’s language, Hayes says, is “more simplistic.” Turns out,…
