At the start of March I spent 2 Days in Washington at a slightly odd workshop on Incorporating Ethics into Artificial Intelligence. I knew, from following [livejournal.com profile] gregmce on Strava, that there was a nice looking run around the National Mall and so most of the photos below are from that - often early in the morning because Jet-Lag.






I was slightly bemused by the random Triceratops skull until I realised I was outside the Smithsonian.




Corporate Communications is very keen that academics should submit "A Postcard From..." blog posts from academic trips which include photographs of themselves in front of famous landmarks. I got some random other early morning tourists to take this therefore (all my attempts at selfies being abysmal). I've not actually written a blog post though, at the moment I sort of feel it's time and effort and Corporate Comms already get their money's worth out of me.

The Mall is where Captain America meets Sam Wilson (Falcon) in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, isn't it?

Yes, I was just thinking that - that I knew there was supposed to be a running track there, because it was where Steve Rogers kept lapping Sam Wilson. :-)

I must admit I was using the term fairly loosely - even in the film it looked like paths, though I don't remember the roads featuring, except for the one Natasha drove up on, looking for a fossil.
