Smart meets silly in The Peer Revue, where cutting-edge research fuels improv comedy.
Each month a different superstar researcher tells stories from their research, which will inspire a cast of talented improvisers to create brand new, unscripted comedy.

It's been said that artificial intelligence (AI) won't take your job, but someone using AI will.

Margaret is a Research Professor at Deakin University's Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE).
