About the talk:
Experience the joy of flying the Parrot AR Drone using the power of Clojure.
We will take a journey that begins with a child's dream of having a "real" robot friend. Along the way, we will discover the blessings of a functional language, the power of the Clojure language, the thrill of flying with a REPL, and maybe even gems of wisdom long lost under the snow of the AI Winter.
- Show how Clojure can be used for fun robotics projects. Also explore John McCarthy's AI concept for ascribing beliefs and goals to machines;
