Science on Saturday events are fun, free science demonstrations at Lincoln Laboratory and are given several times each school year by volunteer scientists and engineers. All local community children aged 5-17 years old, their parents, and their teachers are welcome to attend these events.
Pre-registration is required. Parental/adult escort is required for all children. Electronic devices are not allowed in the facility. Adults must present a valid government-issued photo I.D. Children under the age of 5 are not admitted as this is an educational event for children 5-17 years old.

Teaching Computers to See, Play, and Think
Saturday, March 2, 2019
Presented by: Mark Mazumder, Lincoln Laboratory
Computers are starting to understand the world! We will explore how computers “see” the world using cameras and other sensors, and how “deep learning” helps computers and robots know what’s going on around them. Computers are also playing video games to learn how to explore the world! We’ll have exciting demos of computer vision, augmented reality, and video games used in current machine learning and artificial intelligence research to build self-driving cars, smarter voice assistants, and even basketball-playing robots!
Please note: There will be only one show instead of the regular two.
When registering, please register an adult first, then a child, then any remaining people in your party.
