Alessandro grew up in Padua, Italy, and read for a BA (First Class) in English at the University of Bristol. His MPhil research at Cambridge focuses on the literary study of automated writing: he suggests that texts generated using language models provide an apt testing ground for the study of AI creativity. He is also interested in how digital tools aid learning in educationally disadvantaged areas, in distant reading, in AI and social media policy, in the history and theory of computation, and in the public’s perception of AI.
