What we're about

*** Due to Corona virus, all these events will be delivered online. See individual events for details ***

This meetup is OPEN to all in the community - UT Dallas Computer Science department welcomes every one, including college students, high school students, parents & professionals to attend these late evening presentations on most Saturdays. While our faculty will present the popular technologies or talk about the latest research areas, we may feature industry professionals or external experts occasionally as well. True meetups involve networking - we encourage the participants to come 30 minutes early for networking & you are welcome to stay after the presentation & continue networking as well. This is also a great place to connect with UTD students and even find a few good candidates for internships/FT jobs @ your company.

While these events are completely FREE to attend, we request a tax-deductible donation of $5 (or more) per person @ https://giving.utdallas.edu/CS - thanks for helping us to cover our cost and enabling us to bring such high quality programs to the community!

Custodial Responsibility Disclaimer: The University of Texas at Dallas Computer Science department will not take custodial responsibility of minors (school students) while participating in these Community Outreach Presentations. Custodial responsibility will remain with the parents, legal guardians, and chaperones.

CHM Fellow Raj Reddy

Do you control your phone with voice commands? Did you know your car was built by dozens of robots? Have you read books online for free?

Indian-American computer scientist and professor Raj Reddy and his students have pioneered artificial intelligence, speech recognition, robotics, and universal access to information. Reddy has devoted much of his life’s work to how technology can serve society, particularly in education and in bridging the digital divide through access to information.

Raj Reddy Joins Other Visionaries

For his groundbreaking work in artificial intelligence, robotics, and computer science education, Reddy will be inducted as a CHM 2021 Fellow, joining other visionaries such as NASA mathematician and "hidden figure" Katherine Johnson, world wide web creator Tim Berners Lee, and software pioneer Rear Admiral Grace Hopper.
