Nexus welcomes back Professor Simon Colton

By on Dec 19, 2017 in Blog |

We were delighted to welcome back Simon Colton on Wednesday 6th November for another fascinating talk on AI and Computational Creativity.  He brought with him his programme, the Painting Fool, which uses non-human intelligences to mimic emotion, imagination and creativity in painting portraits of some of his lucky audiences. Many of the students were able to have their portraits drawn by this ground-breaking artist and these pieces of art will be on display around the Nexus buildings.  We can not wait to have Professor Colton back to run workshops on Artificial Intelligence later in the school year.
