Rust Workshop

Tuesday 11th October, 11-12pm in K17 Seminar Room

Join CSESoc for a beginner intro to Rust. Rust is a programming language desinged to compete with C and C++, but with emphasis on memory and thread safety while still offering good performance. We'll go over writing rust programs, and cover Rust's novel memory ownership model.

To follow along get a copy of rustc and cargo. (I recommend rustup.rs, but other sources are okay too).

Knowledge Representation Workshop

Monday 10th October, 1-2pm in K17 Seminar Room

Causality in Knowledge Representation (via Counterfactuals, Probability, and Directed Graphs)

We all have beliefs involving causality (for example, the belief that smoking causes cancer). We talk about causality in this imprecise, informal way all the time: is there any way to represent our causal beliefs in a precise way, such that a computer could understand it? This talk shows how, using the tools of counterfactuals, probability, and directed graphs. What results is a clearer understanding of causality and a way for computers (not just humans) to have causal beliefs. The talk is self-contained, with no prior knowledge of causality, counterfactuals, probability, or directed graphs expected.
