    Calling all Chameleon users interested in reproducibiliity! As you have seen in our last month's changelog we are trying to make reproducible experiments on Chameleon more visible -- and now we are also organizing a hackathon that will help you package your results to be easy to reproduce on Chameleon via Trovi. Please, take a look and see if you can join us in Boston for a day of good ideas, good discussion, and good fun making experiments (including your experiments) more accessible! 

  • Announcing Digital Educational Artifact, autonomous vehicles at the edge

    by Alicia Esquivel

    Join us on Tuesday, August 1st at 10 AM CT for a webinar that showcases how to teach machine learning using inexpensive and easy to find self-driving cars. We will present an educational module that allows students to configure an inexpensive off-the-shelf self-driving vehicle, generate training sets by driving the vehicle, and train models based on those driving sets, evaluate the quality of the training by observing the car in practice, and ultimately refine the training and watch the improvements.

    The educational module is suitable for both educators and self-learners, open-source, and it can be highly configurable for specific classes based on individual or classroom needs. This webinar will demonstrate an end-to-end educational module that aims to bridge the gap between theory abstractions and practice in an easy-to-follow manner. – please, check the registration link here.

  • Educating with Chameleon at Vanderbilt

    by Aniruddha Gokhale

    This month we present an interview with Aniruddha Gokhale, Full Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Vanderbilt University who is using Chameleon to teach classes on cloud computing, computer networks, and distributed systems. Professor Gokhale discusses the challenges of teaching with testbeds, explains how he managed to overcome it in his own teaching, and shares recommendations on how to best leverage the power of testbeds in the classroom.
