Semi-Final Program Grid for Dr. Alice Armstrong
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Dr. Alice Armstrong may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.
|Saturday 10:30 am: Overview of AI Techniques for Your Writing (Ends at: 11:55 am)|
Panelists: Dr. Alice Armstrong (M)
Presentation on artificial intelligence by Dr. Alice Armstrong. The objective of this talk to provide authors with a very brief overview of a few major techniques in AI and machine learning and a chance to pitch ideas to an expert and get feedback on ideas from the presenter and the audience. The technical talk will be given first and will take approximately one hour of the allotted time. Dr. Armstrong will cover about 4 topics, depending on the time. In the second half, the floor will be opened for questions. Questions such as “Would it be plausible if…” or “Would you stop reading a story if an author did this…” will be addressed. Dr. Armstrong will also be willing to clarify technical details, if desired. The presentation and handouts will be provided to interested audience members as a resource.
|Saturday 12:00 pm: Lightening Students' Backpacks: Text Books in the Digital Age (Ends at: 12:55 pm)|
Panelists: Day Al-Mohamed, Dr. Alice Armstrong, Michael Dirda, Thomas Holtz (M), Heidi Ruby Miller
How are textbooks changing in the age of digital content? What is the effect of EBook sharing and lending libraries? What changes when teachers can easily construct their own 'texts'? Or can textbooks be replaced with more interactive media?
