This week, we are excited to discuss a topic that rarely finds its way into the standard computer science curriculum: “fuzzy logic.” As much fun as it is to study binary numbers and Boolean logic, in the real world most things aren’t so black-and-white. Further, consider that if you look up “mustang” on Google, it’s difficult for the search engine to know if you mean a car or a horse. These problems, and many, many more, fall under the study of Fuzzy Logic. Our very own expert (and newly-published author) in the field, Dr. Erin Colvin, will be in this week to talk to us about its applications within computing in a presentation that will be engaging and accessible for everyone.
We’ll open with puzzles or brain teasers, as well as some fun tips and tricks about the world of technology. Don’t forget to go to as many of the faculty candidate talks as possible in the coming weeks! Candidates are here every day but Wednesday, and more information can always be found on the posters and emails shared around the department.
Please join us Tuesday, 2-21 at 5pm in CF 420!
