We are surrounded by artificial intelligence (AI). Machine learning is opening new technological windows and is having a major impact on science, technology, business, politics, and war. However, even as machine learning opens new technological windows and allows new scientific insights, the algorithms themselves have remained a mystery for the most people. Get started with a basic introduction to the science behind machine learning.


Dr. Sandoval was born and raised in Las Cruces, NM. He received the B.S. Electrical Engineering in 2007, and M.S. Electrical Engineering in 2010 from the Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM. His research interests include signal processing, specifically audio and speech processing, time-frequency analysis, geometric algebra, machine learning, and robotics.


The Museum of Nature & Science is located at 411 N. Main Street and is accessible from RoadRUNNER Transit Route 1 Stop 1. Visit the website at: or follow the Las Cruces Museums on Facebook and Instagram @LCMuseums.
