University of Nebraska at Kearney students in Dr. Sherri Harms’ computer science and information systems artificial intelligence class presented a “Future Problem Solving Seminar on Artificial Intelligence” at the Phelps County Ag Center in Holdrege earlier this week.

Dr. Harms and her class presented three sessions to approximately 120 talented and gifted students, grades 4-12, in the ESU #11 service area who participate in the Future Problem Solving program. The presentations were sponsored by ESU #11. Demonstrations included a computerized checkers game, robots that use light and touch sensors to carry out tasks requiring low level intelligence, and featured research by Dr. Harms and two students on a project that uses artificial intelligence algorithms to mine useful information from 100 years of weather data.
