I've spent all week working on a paper for the UCC conference, with plenty of support from my group here. They've actually all had different priorities this summer, so I'm glad we have still been able to meet at least twice a week to discuss the project. I think the effort we've been putting in is apparent in the paper. Hopefully, the reviewers will see it the same way.
I don't really have anything else I can comment on anything work related since the focus has been on just the paper. In fact, there was a presentation on Thursday about the "Watson" project, but I forgot all about it. I did go indoor rock climbing with Liana (my manager) and some other "IBMers" on Thursday, which was a nice way to relieve some stress. It was Liana's first time and she did surprisingly well! I've done it a few times back in Miami, so it was good practice for me. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures, so I have nothing to post for this week.
