When he was a child, Francis wyffels had one dream: to build robots. Nowadays, Francis is a robotics researcher at the Data Science Lab of Ghent University. As a chair and co-founder of Dwengo, Francis inspires children, teachers and volunteers worldwide to tinker with electronics and coding.
Francis talked about how the Dwengo programs help to reach out for girls and socio-economically disadvantaged children to make their first steps in robotics.
Stel je eens voor dat jouw muziekspeler steeds de beste muziek afspeelt, dit op elk moment van de dag aangepast aan jouw gemoedstoestand.

Molecubes, a spin-off from Ghent University-iMinds led by Prof. Dr. Roel Van Holen, has raised 1.9M euro in seed capital through Qbic Arkiv Fund and a syndicate of four investors. The investment will allow Molecubes to launch the world’s smallest desktop PET, SPECT and CT scanner family for the three dimensional (3D) imaging of animals. As such, Molecubes is determined to become a worldwide player in preclinical imaging.
The SID-ME Chapter Student Award is granted for an outstanding scientific or technical achievement in, or contribution to, research on information display.

Jasper De Bock, postdoc at the SYSTeMS group of ELIS, has been awarded the `ISIPTA-IJAR Young Researcher Award: Gold Prize 2015' at ISIPTA '15 (the 9th International Symposium on Imprecise Probability: Theory and Applications) in Pescara, Italy. This award is granted once every two years by IJAR (International Journal of Approximate Reasoning) to one (or more) young researchers, for excellent research in the area of imprecise probabilities.
What is this?
It's an AI that hallucinates. It's interactive: you can tell it what to dream about!
