Student coders in Mr. Lorden's Computer Science II Honors class went into the city on December 9, 2016 to meet with both the IBM Interactive Experience and IBM Watson teams. The girls learned about merging virtual reality with cognitive computing, and IBM's famous Watson Experience.
The students had prepared for this exceptional opportunity by researching artificial intelligence, IBM's business segments, and IBM's commitment to diversity in the workplace. Our girls are the only high school students who have had the opportunity to visit these premises. Thank you to Liz Healy '94, Ursuline alumna and trustee, who is an IBM senior executive and arranged the trip.
