	      "Machine learning and Natural Language Processing" 
	      by Prof. Kevin Scannell, St. Louis University, Dept of Comp Sci. 
	      
	      In Februaury, IBM's computer Watson ran a SuSE OS to compete 
	      in the TV show "Jeopardy!" against the 2 humans who are the 
	      record champions. Watson had to understand the questions, 
	      including the context. This talk will NOT specifically be 
	      about the Watson computer but in general Prof. Scannell 
	      will explain what it takes to get a computer to understand humans.

              Prof. Scannell spoke at SLUUG ~2 yrs ago about setting up programs
	      and web pages to be ready for multi-language usage.  He is a 
	      frequent translator for Irish and celtic languages.  He has also 
	      spoken at a number of other StL tech mtngs.

All WEEK
            "FIRST" high school robotics competition -international finals!!
	
	Apr 25 . 30, 2011
	Edward Jones Dome football stadium 

	These are the international finals.  It is the 1st time held in St. Louis and we will also have these finals in 2012 & 2013.  The regionals were on SLU's campus in March.  The idea is for high schools to compete against each other in building robots which will compete in a game.  The game rules are changed each year so that the students need to "think it thru new" and not just rebuild last year's model.  The students have had ~6 weeks to build the robot after being told the new game. Segway inventor Ray Kurzwiel, who started the FIRST competitio, wnats to bring the excitement of high school sports to engineering & science!  Go volunteer to be an advisor at your favosite high school!  Last year, he announced the (inter)national finals had been granted to ST. Louis' Edward Jones Dome football stadium for 2011 thru 2013!
