Check out these two upcoming sessions by Grainger College of Engineering

The Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois has a few webinars coming up, covering a couple of topics in the realm of their field of research expertise. While certainly the nitty gritty of AI and quantum initiatives are definitely over my head, this looks like a nice way to learn about it straight from experts at the college. We know that Grainger faculty and students are capable of extraordinary things, so you can bet that they will have some cool stuff to talk about in these two webinars.

The first session is tomorrow, February 12th, and the second next week on February 17th. They are free and open to the public. Read about the sessions below, and sign up via their newsletter linked below.
