I’m sure only Eric will be interested in this, but I was browsing the CS faculty pages, and looking at Genesereth. He’s teaching the class I’m TAing, CS 157. Anyway, one of his old PhD advisees – Stuart Russell! Russell is famous for writing, along with Peter Norvig, a great textbook on Artificial Intelligence. I just thought that was cool.
I also found out Feigenbaum won a Turing award in 1994. Whoa.
