As Stephanie Rosenthal finished a whirlwind explanation of how artificial intelligence is infused in applications across the internet and in major tech companies, she paused and looked at her students. But instead of being the typical room full of graduate or undergraduate students, it was a room full of teachers listening and taking notes.

"Does any of that help you?" asked Rosenthal, an assistant teaching professor in the Computer Science Department (CSD).

This summer, the School of Computer Science hosted 28... Read More
