Please join us for an exciting fourth annual symposium on Engineering and Liberal Education. The program includes a keynote talk by Dr. David Ferrucci, Semantic Analysis and Integration Department, IBM Watson Research Center. Dr. Ferrucci is perhaps best known for heading the team of researchers that developed “Watson,” the natural language processor recently featured on the quiz show “Jeopardy,” where it claimed victory over its human competitors.
Other highlights include an industry panel session, panel and discussion sessions on various aspects of integrating engineering and the liberal arts, a poster session, and on Saturday afternoon, a faculty development workshop.
