Riding the rails might not be a way of life anymore, but you can still enjoy the thrill of it! Explore the world of railways at the library with the The Southern Wisconsin Sandhouse Crew as they bring their incredible model train exhibit to our library for 2 days only. A model train show for all ages!

The Southern Wisconsin Sandhouse Crew is an H.O. Scale model railroad club with membership based in the Madison area. The Crew will display their train layout, answer questions, and talk railroads all day!

You've probably heard the terms "AI" and "ChatGPT" in the news and other arenas. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is popping up everywhere these days. What is it? How is it affecting research? Learn about AI's potential to change work, education, and the way we think about what it means to analyze data and even to “know” something at all.

David Williamson Shaffer is the Sears Bascom Professor of Learning analytics at the University of Wisconsin in the Department of Educational Psychology and a Data Philosopher at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research. Professor Shaffer studies ways of merging statistical and qualitative methods to construct fair models of complex and collaborative human activity.
