Artificial Intelligence
(June 28-July 3, Grades 9-12) Last fall, respected Artificial Intelligence researcher Dr. Cassandra O. M. Pewter disappeared during experiments to upload her mind into a mainframe. Recently, strange robots were discovered near her former lab that were scavenging electronic parts and actuators from nearby equipment. Trainees are urgently needed to use bomb disposal robots to explore critical areas of the laboratory, acquire some of these strange robot scavengers, and learn to reprogram them to explore the compromised building. Debates are raging whether it is ethical to shut down the system or to treat the advanced intelligence as a new life-form. Will you help us navigate the ethical and technological challenges to save the campus from this potential robot invasion?
