Greetings fellow deterministic turing machines,
The term is coming to an end, and we will be celebrating as such on
Monday December 3rd 7-9pm in the MC Comfy.
Come hang out with fellow CSC members, and enjoy food and cake!

We have an amazing group of members giving short talks on topics of
Anna Lorimer - <redacted> - All about Slitheen (no, not the dr who
Will Gertler - Quantum Information- a Primer
Fatema Boxwala - GANs, Generative Art and Edward Bellamy
Alex Zvorygin - Designing Large Scale Systems for the Web

Zichuan Wei - Quantum Computers: what they are and what they can do
Come enjoy some cool talks and free food!
We will be having a prof talk with Professor Gregor Richards, on
November 12, 5:30 PM - 7 PM, in MC 4063. He will be talking about
netplay in emulators, which allows for playing video games over the
internet. Prof. Richards is the maintainer of the netplay infrastructure
for RetroArch, a popular emulator frontend for multiple platforms.
You've got a game, but you didn't write it. You're running it by
emulating the machine it was meant to run on, and the machine it was
meant to run on never had support for networking. Now, you want to play
with your friend, over the Internet. Oh, and it's not acceptable to
incur any latency between your controller and the game while we're at
it. Surely that can't be possible, right? Wrong. This talk will discuss
the re-emulation technique for netplay used commercially by a system
called GGPO and freely in an emulator frontend called RetroArch, and how
similar techniques can be applied to make networking work in other
scenarios it was never meant for. This will be an unprepared, impromptu
talk with no slides, so it should either be a fascinating dive into a
little-heard-of technique, or an impenetrable mess of jargon and
algorithms. Either way, it should be fun.
