I, Comic: OSU professor works robot into comedy act
Did you hear the one about the robot that went to a comedy club to do a stand-up routine? That robot's name is Ginger. And it’s programmer, a professor from Oregon State University, brings Ginger around the world to tell jokes. “We have one routine, where basically the robot breaks up with me on stage and then I'm kind of like, common Ginger, you're my only performing robot and I touch its head, and it's like don't touch me,” Professor Heather Knight says.

Targeting tumors with 3D animation
Two professors in the College of Engineering are advancing mathematical modeling to make 3D images more realistic. The techniques can improve our movie going experience, but when applied to science, they can increase the accuracy of simulation models used to predict natural disasters like tornadoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis. Or, in this case, help medical professionals better target cancerous tumors. Eugene Zhang, professor of computer science, and Yue Zhang, associate professor of structural engineering and computer science, are collaborating on a project with Dr. Wolfram Laub at Johns Hopkins Medicine to reduce patient exposure to radiation.

This night is dedicated to introducing you to leaders in the spaces of blockchain, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence to demonstrate the accessibility of these spaces to the people of our community. We also hope to carve a path forward, together, where we can push for the change that needs to happen in these industries.
