I am a former artificial intelligence philosopher. As much as academia is for me a PhD was not. These days I am using my past experience in poetry and AI writing to create concrete poetry.
You can see all of my/the computer's work at http://exampleurl.xyz -
The "quarterly reports" are PDFs of every concrete poem of mine posted online in the three months stated.
I post concrete poems on Masto (and birdsite) every Thursday using the hashtag #concretepoetry in the fediverse.

What I, and presumably every other applicant, got was a leter listing each candidate and why each candidiate was not selected. (Except the one who did get the job obvs)
I programmed a computer to trick it into thinking it is making art when it is actually making poetry.
