Assistant Professor, Rutgers

I was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey during 1971-74. The Department was new, starting just two years earlier.

I taught in both the Graduate College and the undergraduate, Livingston College, which “embodied the spirit of social responsibility and cultural awareness demanded by students of the time.” My office was in the Hill Center for the Mathematical Sciences in the Busch Campus in Piscataway (upper right).

canalThrough Livingston College, I taught courses such as basic programming and data structures. One of my favorites was Models of Thought, an early cognitive science course. I also taught masters and doctoral students in areas such as Non-Numerical Algorithms, Natural Language Processing, Question Answering by Computer, Artificial Intelligence, and Discrete Structures.
