We are putting together a "chatbot". Her name is Tina. I don't expect she's going to pass a Turing Test any time soon, at least not this year. Her grammar stinks, her spelling is so-so, and she doesn't like people who talk more than she does. But after a couple of weeks of kids "chatting" with her she'll definitely be ready for something more - either the Recycle Bin, or Version 2.0.

We are hosting an All Girls Week this year. With women representing about 45% of the work force, and only about 12% of the science and engineering workforce, we think that's a problem. Most people will only pay lipservice to the issue, Robotics & Beyond is trying to do something about it. Here is the Girls Week flyer.
