Programming AI to think like a serial killer

A professor at USC is programming an artificial intelligence with the writings of the infamous Zodiac Killer, ostensibly to crack an unsolved cipher and solve the cold case. Zodiac, who was never caught, was responsible for at least five murders (and possibly as many as 28) in California in the late ’60s and early ’70s. Now the AI is writing creepy Zodiac-style poetry.

What can possibly go wrong?
