This Oregon Nature Lover Helped Build a Defense Department-funded Military Game that Could Help AI Explain Itself
Jed Irvine is an unlikely AI technologist. The nature-loving bird enthusiast (and sometimes-rock drummer) questions a lot about the future impact of the deep learning technologies he works with as Senior Faculty Research Assistant at Oregon State University. Yet, despite the fact he decidedly is “not a gamer,” Irvine is part of a small team in the school’s Artificial Intelligence and Robotics department who aim to transform the incomprehensible gobbledygook of machine learning language into human language. And they're using a neural network-based military-themed strategy game to get there. He works with the team under XAI project lead Alan Fern, associate director of the Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems Institute at OSU and project co-lead Margaret Burnett, distinguished professor in OSU’s School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Thomas Dietterich, a pioneer in the machine learning field and director of Intelligent Systems at the university is consulting on the effort. RedTail

The Dream Labs of Future Robotics
We will take a peek into our future through the lens of a few of the nation’s top academic institutions for robotics research. Each of these universities continues to attract and recruit renowned faculty to their robotics rosters. They have interdisciplinary master’s and doctoral programs in robotics. They spawn successful spinoffs and notable alumni that shake up the industry. They embrace a comprehensive approach to robotics research and education. At the heart of Corvallis, a city in central western Oregon about 50 miles from the Pacific Coast, we find a hidden gem. Oregon State University (OSU) is the city’s largest employer and home to the Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems (CoRIS) Institute. Robotic Industries Association

Yub nub! Students dress a bipedal robot like an AT-ST
Students at Oregon State University dressed up their bipedal robot, Cassie, in a delightful AT-ST costume. This robot, which everyone said looked like one of the Empire’s two-legged walkers anyway, can now zap both Rebels and Ewoks in a deadly battle to take control of the forest city of Corvallis.

How Oregon Works: Daimler Trucks North America veers into High Tech's lane
The company is undeniably high tech, and so is its workforce. As a result, the company often finds itself dipping into the same talent pool as Google parent Alphabet, Amazon, Intel and other pure tech companies. With unemployment rates at historic lows, everyone is having trouble attracting top talent. Daimler faces the added challenge of battling the stigma sometimes associated with employment in the manufacturing industry. “You pretty much need to be looking at people with computer science backgrounds, electrical engineers and even guys that do more advanced statistical work, mathematicians, statisticians, data scientists,” said Jason Krajewski, director of connectivity for DTNA.
