J. Barkley Rosser Memorial Lecture: A Logical Revolution

Mathematical logic was developed in an effort to provide formal foundations
for mathematics. In this quest, which ultimately failed, logic begat
computer science, yielding both computers and theoretical computer science.
But then logic turned out to be a disappointment as foundations for
computer science, as almost all decision problems in logic are either
unsolvable or intractable. Starting from the mid 1970s, however, there
has been a quiet revolution in logic in computer science, and problems that

(NLP Talk) Challenges in the Computational Analysis of Large Book Corpora

With the rise of large-scale digitization efforts over the past ten years (such as those by Google Books, the HathiTrust, and the Internet Archive), we now have access to large textual datasets preserving our cultural record in the form of printed books. These text collections have driven research at the intersection of computational methods and the humanities, exploiting advances made over past thirty years in natural language processing and machine learning.

CS Student Org Fair

Visit the CS lobby to find out about student-led computer-related clubs and organizations.

Through this event, we hope to introduce great activities to more UW-Madison students, help organizations grow and thrive, and encourage coordination across clubs.

In past semesters, the following organizations have been present; we expect similar groups this year!

Undergraduate Internship Panel Discussion

Join your peers to get advice on applying for internships and what to expect. This is a great opportunity to hear from your fellow students about their varied experiences in their internships.

You can also hear directly from a human resources recruiter to help answer those internship questions you always wanted to ask!

This is a great way to prepare for the CS Job fair too!

Please RSVP here (you must be logged into your wisc.edu account to access the form).
