This week we have two events.
The first will be our usual talk, on Tuesday at 4:30pm in RCH 306. Dr. Shai Ben-David will be presenting a talk entitled "Machine learning vs human learning - will scientists become obsolete?". Light refreshments will be served and all are welcome.
The second event is Thursday at 5:30pm in MC5158. We will (in concert with the PMC) be holding a Gathering 4 Gardner. For those who don't know, Martin Gardener passed away this year. He was a well known and much loved mathematician, writer, and skeptic, and for many years wrote the 'Mathematical Games' column in Scientific American where he discussed puzzles and recreational mathematics. At this event we will explore and present the many things Martin enjoyed, puzzles, paradoxes, and maybe even some Alice in Wonderland. This is not a memorial, just a chance to become acquainted with the fascinating things that fascinated Martin. If you can't wait until Thursday and would like to get a taste of things to come, try reading the MAA's in focus on him:
Or if you just want a cool illusion to play with, try the Dragon illusion:
I hope to see you there.
