Saturday Oct 11: Computer Vision and the Game of 31!

Advanced Series

Title: Computer Vision

Speaker: David Fridovich-Keil

Time & Date: 2pm-3pm, Saturday Oct 11

Location: Princeton Public Library, teen room (3rd floor)

Abstract: Humans are visual creatures — we understand things best by seeing them. We have two eyes, each of which captures a two dimensional version of our surroundings, and somehow our brains can stitch those images together into a three dimensional worldview. But what if we replace the two eyes with digital cameras, and the brain with a computer: can we teach a computer to “see” the world around it? This week we will see just how some tasks in computer vision are quite easy, and how others are impossibly difficult, through demonstrations that you can take back home, replicate, and build upon.

Title: The Game of 31

Time & Date: 3:14pm-4pm, Saturday Oct 11

Location: Princeton Public Library, teen room (3rd floor)

Abstract: This week, we’ll play a deceptively simple game called “31.” In this two-player game, players take turns choosing a number from 1 through 6 and adding it to a final sum, in order to reach the number 31 without going past it. Can we find a winning strategy for this seemingly simple game? What if more players play? What if we change the goal number of 31? Join us as we play to find out!
