For the third year, Amazon and Blue Origin CEO Jeff Bezos handpicked roughly 200 attendees from the field of machine learning, automation, robotics, and space exploration to create 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 Professor Tanya Berger-Wolf was invited this year and provided us with a few photos from her adventure.
