Artificial Intelligence (AI) vs. Science-U (You) _СУ Eberly College of Science Summer Camps л_9:00 am - 5:00 pm regular days; Sunday, June 29th is check-in and camp opening (4pm for day campers, 6:00 for residential), and camp ends July 4th at 1pm with a parent reception at noon. Last fall, respected Artificial Intelligence researcher Dr. Cassandra Pewter disappeared from her university laboratory during experiments to upload her mind into a mainframe.л_Recently, strange robots were discovered near her former lab area that were found to be scavenging electronic parts and actuators from nearby equipment. The area has been cordoned off as all attempts to send in remote-control robots have resulted in these systems being suddenly re-programmed and disappearing. When adults have interacted with this new intelligence, there has been only failure, as somehow this system interprets adults as threatening. The plan now is to train high-school students to use bomb disposal robots to explore critical areas of the laboratory, acquire some of these strange robot scavengers, and reprogram themл_to explore the extent of the robotic invasion in the building. There is a possibility to augment these student volunteersл_with robotic enhancements to allow communication with this new artificial intelligence, but there's a risk that these enhancements cannot be removed after they are installed. Volunteers are urgently neededл_in order to shut down this system or at least teach it to interact nicely with others.л_Will you help us navigate the ethical and technological challenges to save the campus from this robot invasion? This camp ends on July 4th at 2 pm. Closing ceremony/activity from 1-2 pm. Please drop your child off from between 8:45 and 9:00 am. Camp ends promptly at 5:00 pm. Please arrange to pick him/her up by 4:00 pm Campers can choose to stay at Penn State from Sunday evening (check-in and opening ceremony at 7:00 pm) until Friday afternoon (camp ends promptly at 2:00 pm). Resident campers stay in University Residence Halls. Evening mentors supervise activities and outings.
