Day 8 kicked off with breakfast and a lecture from Professor Stefano Ermon. Prof. Ermon talked about computational sustainability and how machine learning could help with sustainability and conservation. Students also learned about eBird, a collaborative system where everyday bird watchers contributed observations that scientists used as data points for their research.
After Prof. Ermon’s lecture, students had another session with their research projects.
The campers then had a field trip to Google, where they enjoyed a relaxing lunch at the company’s cafeteria. Google employees, many whom conduct research in the natural language processing field, joined the students for lunch. An industry panelist followed the lunch, and the girls had a chance to ask their own questions to Google professionals.
The tour concluded with a stop at Google’s visitor center.
We hope that everybody had a lot of fun on Day 8, and we can’t wait for the last 2 days of camp!
