Professor Mullainathan puts students' taste buds to the test

Could you tell the difference between a risotto recipe created by a catering company and one created by a robot?

Sendhil Mullainathan, Roman Family University Professor of Computation and Behavioral Science, asked his students to put their taste buds to the test as part of a new class on artificial intelligence. 

Rather than focusing on the mechanics of AI, as other UChicago classes do, Mullainathan gives students a strategic understanding of how to deploy AI tools in business, and, more importantly, how to consider what AI does well and what it does badly.

To find out how the students fared,watch the video.
