Dear faculty and students,

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, August 30th for the first AI
lunch of the semester! Lunch will be at noon in *NSH 1507*. (On subsequent
Tuesdays, we will meet in NSH 3305, unless otherwise noted.) Please visit
the AI Lunch webpage <http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~aiseminar/> to see the lineup
of talks we have scheduled for the next few months. If you are interested
in giving a talk, feel free to email me and Ariel (arielpro at cs.cmu.edu).

On August 30th, we are excited to have Andrew Moore
<http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~awm/>, Dean of the School of Computer Science,
present this semester's first talk. His talk is titled "Explaining AI at
CMU to the rest of the world."

*Abstract:* Within CMU and SCS we are very confident that we are helping
lead the world in AI and other forms of advanced computer science /
statistics / optimization / game theory to make the world a much better,
funner and safer place. This is a direct legacy from two of the four
founders of AI: Newell and Simon.

How do we explain what's going on right now in a way that is interesting
and compelling? How do we explain it in different contexts? With a lot of
help from Manuela, Martial, Jaime and others I have a story assembled which
I've been using to try to spread the word. I need feedback on it and ideas
for which audiences need it tweaked in which direction. I would like to
spend 30 mins giving the pitch and then spend 30 mins discussing how to
improve it, and also, of course, whether it might have useful content for
the other CMU-AI folks to use when needed.

Ellen and Ariel
