Hey guys, first post on IB survival. Been thinking about what I want to do my exploration into for my coursework. A topic that has come up a few times is computer science and the logic behind that. I was going to try to make a computer write an essay or create something, subsequently fail and explain using maths why a computer can't speculate or "fill in the blanks" to lack of knowing a better word. However I'm worried that this subject may be too vague and I'm worried that I'm going to go real deep into this to realise that I am writing an essay which is irrelevant to maths. Opinions on this would be appreciated, thanks.

It sounds feasible, but you have to make sure to keep it off the realms of computer science and definately indisputably maths. Otherwise this might make it more of a computer science exploration.

You could possibly do something with algorithms.

Or something to do with combinatorics and the whole Shakespeare infinite monkey theorem.


That's a few ideas that came to mind.
