A Spotlight Descending on Pittsburgh

So said the radio on my alarm clock as it was waking me up this morning. I don’t really know what that means, and I don’t think spotlights descend, per se, but in my grogginess, I did wonder if they were talking about AAAI. Of course, then I hit the snooze button so I never found out. Can I just mention how great it is to go to a conference and still be able to sleep in my own bed?

Hi. I’m Maayan Roth, a 5th year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute. I’ll be blogging the Americas School on Agents and Multiagent Systems, which is co-located with AAAI and starts today. I’ve never been to an agent school before. Actually, this is a week of firsts for me. One of the things participants in the agent school are expected to do is make a poster, and up until yesterday, I’d never made one of those either. This is surprising, considering how long I’ve been in grad school. Well, technically, since my poster isn’t printed yet, I suppose I still haven’t made a poster yet. Hmm. I hope that goes ok.

Well, welcome to Pittsburgh, AAAI and ASAMAS participants. If you have any questions or need any restaurant recommendations, don’t hesitate to ask

Hi Maayan,

I'm coming out to Pittsburgh tomorrow (Friday) from Vancouver, Canada and would love to have a tour of the city from a genuine local ; )

I'll be arriving with my two partners Michael and Geoff at 5pm. We look forward to discovering the local culture of Pittsburgh (especially the Jazz scene).

cheers,

Caroline
