Artificial Intelligence vs Human Touch - Annual House Drama Competition
It took months of research on deepfakes, voice cloning, overseas university scams and the latest in artificial intelligence. Building props, writing scripts, rehearsals and staging were carried out with huge commitment. And the the result were four brilliant productions in our annual "Katie Baddeley" drama competition.
The theme of "Artificial Intelligence Vs Human Touch" was testing. But the children of Future Hope rose to the challenge. "Seldom I have seen such intense and varied depictions on stage," said Kaushik Dutta, one of the judges.
At the end of the four performances the din of 600 claps resonated the Mahadevi Birla World Academy auditorium acknowleding the tremendous effort put up by the children. And after a tense wait, the winning house was Panthers.
Well done all, front of house, back stage, house captains and every performer, super job!
Since its inception in 1987 Future Hope has touched more than 3,500 young lives and many thousands more families.
We pride ourselves on our alumni who have become self-reliant, hardworking members of society, with steady employment and happy families.
"My dream is to motivate others so they don’t suffer the same ways I had to go through, to be a successful person and support my family".
