Featuring Arts in Education Specialist Todd Shaffer of Young Audiences of Louisiana

Thinking about a career in art education? Want to focus on your art now and still make ends meet? Come hear how you can make it happen.

Todd Shaffer is a dynamic speaker and enthusiastic advocate for art (and design) education opportunities for working and aspiring artists and designers. He works personally with many such people, helping to train and place them in full-time jobs as teachers in schools, part-time substitutes, teachers in arts integration and after-school programs, etc. He will speak about that but also touch on paths that students might pursue based on their interests and goals (degrees in art education, Teacher Certification, ancillary certification) This will be useful and informative for students who are leaning toward careers as teachers who also make art, as well as those focused on their careers as makers but who are looking for ways to make the career financially feasible.

DENIM DAY: **Support survivors on Wednesday April 26 by wearing jeans and donating $1.00 to Sexual Trauma Awareness and Response (STAR). We will be collecting donations and taking photos in One Loyola, Danna Center

ORIGINS OF DENIM DAY: The campaign began after a "ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault." From Peace Over  Violence

"It is still considered science-fiction to give a robot a simple command, such as "go get me a beer from the fridge", and have it granted. However, the field of artificial intelligence (AI) has continuously been progressing. AI units have become common nowadays without the users necessarily being aware of them. Famous examples include Facebook's face recognition system and the Google translate program. In this talk I will explain, without entering into the mathematical details, how simple attempts to imitate nature allows us to program computers and robots in such a way that they can develop their own knowledge without any input from the programmer. This results in machines that are capable of making decisions based on their own experience and history, instead of simply outputting the programmer's mind. The first part of my talk will illustrate how a crude imitation of the basic structure of a human brain allows computers and robots not only to learn from examples, but also to generalize these examples and make guesses. The second part will illustrate how a simple implementation of human feelings, such as “pain” and “happiness”, allows computers and robots to develop their own strategy in order to reach their assigned goal, such as a four-legged robot learning how to walk, or a computer beating a chess champion. Overall, my talk will present some of the ideas that will be developed in the newly created course "Neural Networks & Applications" that will be offered next fall at Loyola." -Dr. Rousseau
