AI2 Lab Fall Feast
October 22, 2022
AI2 members at GSU had a Fall Feast event at Dr. Kim's house on October 22, 2022. It was our first face-to-face fun activity that had been delayed due to the COVID pandemic. Dr. Kim cooked Korean BBQ (chicken and beef), kmbob (Korean sushi), tteokbokki (spicy Korean rice cake), and some beverages. Also, there was very authentic international food our members brought. There were a lot of leftovers after we ate as full as we could hold. We should have invited more guests! We will do it next time.
AI2 members gave a talk about AI-enabled learning analytics.
