Adam Savage

For the third year, Amazon, Blue Origin and it’s CEO Jeff Bezos handpicked roughly 200 attendees from the field of machine learning, automation, robotics and space exploration to create (and spell) MARS, a three-day conference in Palm Springs, CA attended by some of the leading minds in their respective fields. The UIC Computer Science Department’s own Prof. Tanya Berger-Wolf was invited this year and provided us with a few personal pics from her adventure.
