Coffee Chat with Mehran Sahami


This past Monday, SymSys Society members sat down with Professor Mehran Sahami of the Computer Science department, to chat over coffee. The conversation ranged from discussing the intersection of CS and Education to reminiscing on his experience taking CS229 (when there were less than 10 students in the class!). Excitingly, Mehran will be teaming up with professors in the political science department to teach a course on computer science and ethics next year. If you're interested in issues like bias in decision making algorithms, keep an eye out for that!
