We've got Robots and Relics for this months meeting.   William Lindley will give us a history of computers with various items of historical significance that he's acquired over time and then Scott and Wendy Rose will introduce us to SUNI the robot.

William Lindley: 75 Years of Computing in 60 Minutes

The roots of modern digital computing go back nearly two hundred years, and through a series of pass-around artifacts from the past century, we will explore how the pioneers of the field and their groundbreaking decisions and technologies have led us -- for better or worse -- to today's Internet-enabled world.

About William:
Mr. Lindley has been in the computer industry since he sold his first program (a printer driver for Heathkit HDOS) in 1980. He has used system from the earliest 8-bit microprocessors, through the PDP-11 and VAX, up to IBM mainframes, and has managed to write programs that did not crash on most of them. Mr. Lindley has been a GNU/Linux user since 1992 and has been free of proprietary software since 2001. Most recently he has been pleased to be an adjunct professor at Mesa Community College.

Scott & Wendy Rose: SUNI the Robot presents STEM in America open source addition

Team Suni will discuss the future of Robotics through Stem in America and the future jobs it will create. Discussion will center around Suni's open-source programming using Linux Ubuntu OS and Robot Operating System.

SUNI the robot is cutting-edge robotic technology from across planet internet, creating a truly unique educational experience. And the creative ideas that power SUNI’s adventures to AI are a worldwide collaboration.Team SUNI knows how to creatively inspire and we built SUNI the Robot to prove it.
