For those of you that like games of skill such as poker or found the movie “A Beautiful Mind” fascinating, you may be interested in this Ustream webcast going on tonight sponsored by UCLA Engineering/UCLA Math.
Both Chris Ferguson (UCLA PhD – 2000 World Series of Poker Champion) and William Chen (Well known Professional Poker Player) will be in attendance along with 2 of my former profs, Professors Korf & Kleinrock.
Professor Kleinrock is one of UCLA’s most famous active professors and is most notably known for being one of the founding fathers of the Internet. He created & operated one of two nodes of the ARPAnet project, the foundation of what we use today.
Questions will be taken over Twitter using hashtags.
