I presented a talk on the different Java artificial intelligence frameworks at the monthly RJUG meeting. The presentation focused on JOONE, but also contained demos of JESS and a brief overview of JGAP. I have used both JOONE (artifical neural networks) and JESS (expert systems) for course projects. My slides from the presentation are available here. Two JOONE code examples were presented: XOR and RJUG Attendance Predictor (requires joone-engine.jar).
RIT hosted the second annual Possibilities In Computing conference in the Golisano College atrium. It was designed for guidance counselors, computing, math and technology teachers to learn about the latest job opportunities and degree programs. I volunteered to share my experiences and thoughts with the attendees and met some great people from the local highschools.
