2022: The Year of Prolog
(In preparation.)The initiatives of the The Year of Prolog include a Prolog Education initiative, with a double objective:
- introduce schoolchildren and young adults to logic, programming, sound reasoning, and AI;
- map and provide Prolog education resources, that educators can use or adapt to teach Prolog at all levels.
Two examples of courses that have been given already:
- From May 21 to June 5: 5 sessions total, on Saturdays: Prolog for AI Thinking, by Eric Fung: https://www.meetup.com/utdcsor/events/285443171/.
- From June 6-10 2022: 5 sessions of 7 hours each: Logic Programming with Prolog for AI, by Gopal Gupta: https://personal.utdallas.edu/~jeyv/ai-prolog.png, from 9am to 4pm everyday for 5 days, Central US time.
