AI and Meaning & Spiritual Scuba

Presenters: Casey Kennington and Shawn Simmonson

The third in a series of four, this MashUp will feature a short lecture by Boise State Computer Science professor Casey Kennington, giving a short lecture about how AI creates "meaning." How do large-language models actually "know" what they know, and communicate that to us? A second short presentation will come from Shawn Simonson, Director of the Human Performance Lab at Boise State, who will be talking about the otherworldly experience of living that scuba life in deep blue waters around the world. The audience will then have an opportunity to connect these two topics in a lively Q&A.

Way to go Professor Brandt for making the front page of https://ow.ly/gaBs50PfspJ!

Researchers Become “Beaver Believers” After Measuring the Impacts of Rewilding
NASA Collaborates with Conservationists

While working on water monitoring for ranchers, scientists Jodi Brandt and Nick Kolarik heard about “beaver fever.” Ranchers had gone from seeing beavers as a nuisance to recruiting them onto their land. Brandt is now an associate professor of human-environment systems at Boise State University, and Nick Kolarik is her Ph.D. student. Brandt leads a team using NASA’s Earth observation data to help quantify how beavers can have an outsized and positive impact on local ecosystems. She works with Wally Macfarlane and Joe Wheaton, both at Utah State University, who developed the Beaver Restoration Assessment Tool (BRAT).
