Talk Title:
Artificial Intelligence Thinking in K-12
Dave’s Bio:
David S. Touretzky is a Research Professor in the Computer Science Department and Neuroscience Institute at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.  As founder and chair of the AI4K12 Initiative Touretzky leads an NSF-funded project to develop national guidelines for teaching Artificial Intelligence in K-12.  The project is jointly supported by CSTA and AAAI, the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.  More information is available at the project web site, http://AI4K12.org.  Touretzky earned his B.A. in Computer Science from Rutgers University in 1978 and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon in 1984.  He is also the creator of Calypso for Cozmo, an intelligent robot programming framework that puts real artificial intelligence tools into the hands of K-12 students.
While many of us long for Josh Paley’s selections of locally prepared Chinese foods (one of the 4 basic food groups), we remain fully virtual for now. One advantage has been our ability to have outstanding speakers from anywhere that the time zone isn’t hopelessly painful.  All are welcome! CSTA membership is strongly encouraged but not required for attendance. If you are interested in our happenings, basic membership is free, and we’ll be delighted to help you get signed up. It is even OK to join more than one chapter! We especially welcome our colleagues from neighboring chapters such as San Mateo and Golden Gate.
Agenda: (Pacific Time)

Other business: We have a small bit of SV Chapter Business to attend to, from 8:15 to 8:30 (8:45 latest). (More information to follow in separate email.) If you are a registered member of the SV chapter, your participation is very important for this. If you a registered member but are unable to attend, please be sure to reach out to me by email so we can obtain your vote on the official business. If you are on our mailing list and not a member of CSTA, we’d just like to urge you to “join” — it’s free — and we’re glad to help.
