Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, September 13th from 7:00
to 9:00 at Trinity Lutheran Church.
Conrad Barski, M.D. presents:
How To Tell Stuff To A Computer,
The Enigmatic Art of Knowledge Representation
Conrad created this presentation in order to help demistify
the science of knowledge representation (KR for short) for
all who are interested in this still largely
underappreciated scientific field. Representing knowledge,
in itself, is not a very difficult thing to understand: It
is no mystery that computers are a great way to store and
retrieve information. But have you ever wondered where
things currently stand with the science behind computer
information? Is the way we currently use information on
computers about as good as it can be? ...Or, can we expect
that there are major advancements still ahead of us?
Anyone who looks closely at the way we currently store and
use information with computers will find that our methods
are, at best, still rather crude.
Conrad received his M.D. at the University of Miami School of
Medicine. He is now working at ProVation Medical Software developing
tools for procedure documentation, including DocuDiagrams, a novel
system of interactive diagrams for documenting cardiology procedures. In
a previous life, he was the lead developer on the video game "FlipOut!"
for the Atari Jaguar game console.
Directions to Trinity:
602 E. 9th St. & Ave B., on Thomkins Square Park
* From the N,R,W (8th Street NYU Stop) and the 6 (Astor Place Stop):
Walk East 4 blocks on St. Marks, cross Thomkins Square Park.
* From the F&V (2nd Ave Stop): Walk E one or two blocks, turn north
for 8 short blocks
* From the L (1st Ave Stop): Walk E one block, turn south for 5
* From bus lines: The M9 drops you off at the doorstep and the M15
is near, just get off at St. Marks & 1st Ave.
* To get there by car: Take the FDR (East River Drive) to Houston
then go NW till you're at 9th & B.
Week-night parking isn't bad at all, but if you're paranoid about
your Caddy or in a hurry, there is a parking garage on 9th between
1st and 3rd Ave.
