Speaker Evaluation

In a paragraph in your blog, summarize the talk, including the

  •  problem they’re trying to solve
  •  motivation for problem (problem’s importance)
  •  their approach to the problem
  •  how they evaluated their approach
  • their contributions (may overlap with some of the other parts)

Then, address the following questions:

  • What were the two most interesting things about the presentation?  (Could be something you learned, something you liked about the talk, something you observed about the presentation that you would like to duplicate if you were giving a talk.)
  • What is a question you had but did not ask?
  • Would you like to take a course from this person?
