3I03 9/20/04 12:13am

I've just completed the lecture slides for the presentation, I've tried to follow some of the philosphy that have been handed down to us in class.

I've tried to keep each line to a minimum, and although in the end I decided to take out most of my half-life 2 comparison for lack of content I'll leave that for if I have enough time.

The current draft 1.0 includes details about lisp and 2 slides on his page of AI. I'll be spending the most time on his AI paradigms it seems.

To me at least it seems most of his interresting work stems from this category, prehaps I can still salvage some of my Half-Life material to do real life comparisons with the theoretical AI. work that JM did.

So the slides have been completed things to do:
1. Get the slides printed at docu center.
2. Start working on speech connectives.

Make sure you list at least one application seen today from A.I.

Be sure to include his birth and death dates prehaps who he works with too.

Be sure to prepare filler material.
Construct a tree diagram for yor speech.

Do not forget to introduce yourself!

Play with the idea of role playing, act like this person's comming in.

How a presentation tree might work:
- You can go 'n' levels deep.
- You can choose not to branch off.
- You can build in alternate paths.

12:16 pm
Be sure to find interresting trinkets about your person.

Kedri is confusing me right now. What does "one person's roof is another's ceiling" mean? I thought the person that has a roof above his head was the same person that has that particular ceiling. I mean you could probably look at your neighbor's roof and have it not be your ceiling but that's a stretch.

I think the point of it was, the higher level in the waterfall design defines what you need to do and the lower levels deal with how. Each upper level defines each lower level's requirements.

things to look forward to: documentation, how to write req.
