No AI in humor: R2-D2 walks into a bar, doesn’t get the joke
Linguists and computer scientists say this is something to consider on April Fools’ Day: Humor is what makes humans special. When people try to teach machines what’s funny, the results are at times laughable but not quite in the way intended. Oregon State University computer scientist Heather Knight created the comedy-performing robot Ginger to help her design machines that better interact with — and especially respond to — humans. She said it turns out people most appreciate a robot’s self-effacing humor. The Washington Post Also: WATCH: Why robots still struggle to understand humour

56 Percent of Tech Employees at Amazon, Microsoft, and Apple Think They're Underpaid
You might think these tech employees, many of whom are already out-earning their parents while in their 20s, would be pleased with their compensation. You'd be wrong. A new and disheartening survey by Blind, an anonymous social network for tech employees. More than 10,500 Blind users were asked whether the following statement was true or false: "I am paid far less than the value I create." About 56 percent said the statement was true. Thousands of these respondents work for Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and other household-name high-tech employers. Inc.

Lonseth Lecture with Dr. Mai Gehrke
Friday, April 19 | 5 – 6 PM | CH2M Hill Alumni Center Willamette Room | Reception to follow
Join the Oregon State University Mathematics Department for a lecture by Dr. Mai Gehrke on “Using Abstract Mathematical Structures to Study Algorithmic Complexity Questions.”
Automata are very simple computational models. They are important in applications of computer science but also serve as a laboratory for studying the complexity of algorithms. In this talk we introduce automata and show how finite monoids, certain very abstract algebraic structures, may be assigned as invariants of automata. We illustrate how these invariants are powerful enough to make deep computational questions decidable. Finally, we give a glimpse of an idea how this can be generalized to provide sophisticated mathematical tools for the study of computational complexity classes.
