Next Meetup

LV Meetup: AlphaGo
Local Variables will be meeting at IUSB in the Education and Arts building room 1025 (EA 1025) on Thursday, April 26 at 6 pm. David Cieslak will talk about AlphaGo and AI (see below). The talk starts at 6:30 pm. Trek10 is sponsoring food and refreshments this month. We need to get an accurate head count for food as we need to order in advance, so PLEASE RSVP ASAP IF YOU ARE COMING! Please join us for a great night of learning, discussion, and networking! As usual, there will be a JetBrains product giveaway too! "AlphaGo: Where is AI Today and Where is it Going?" by David Cieslak Games have long posed a muse for mathematicians, computer scientists, and more recently AI developers. Systems like Deep Blue, Watson, and more recently AlphaGo represent the tip of the ice-berg for our current state in computational and learning systems technologies. But where are we today really and where is this heading? Do I have to worry about my job being taken over by robots? Is SkyNet taking over? Has the singularity happened? Let's take a historical trip through how AI has defined and been defined by the gaming problems it can solve. We'll figure out what it all means and just where we might be headed. Logistics: Campus map: Parking: Event parking signs will direct people to the Education Arts parking lot. As long as you park in the designated lot, you won't need any sort of parking permit. If signs are missing, park in a lot close to the building. If anyone ever has issues with parking tickets during these events, please let us know.
