Fresher's Talk, followed by pizza

Solving analogy problems with letter sequences, such as

abc is to aabbcc as uvw is to ??

That’s an easy problem, but there is a whole hierarchy of more and more interesting examples, and much of the talk would be about how to approach these problems systematically, which is challenging because every time you think you have a system, someone comes up with an analogy problem that has a natural solution that the system doesn’t find.
