New Graduate Practicum Course
•
CS590: Graduate Practicum I/II, 3 Credits
• Provides graduate students more opportunities to
•
•
•
apply their skills to a real-world project of their
choice with their faculty project advisor
Showcase and evaluate the computer science
skills obtained through the IPFW ACS programs.
Provides outreach to the NE Indiana region in a
manner consistent with the missions of IPFW and
ACS program.
Starts from Fall 2016

Proof-rooted AI
Analogical
Reasoning
Moral and
Ethical
Reasoning
Counterdeception
Explanation Generation Requires Reasoning
“According to my algorithm, I am 67.2%
sure you have cancer.”
This is a chain of commonsense causeeffect inferences, that machine learning
algorithms are bad at generating
“According to this x-ray, there is this
mass that typically is a strong indicator of
(etc etc)”
Category: US Cities
How could this have happened?
More importantly: In mission-critical
domains (healthcare, military, etc.),
we need more proof-based reasoning
systems
