Jasper De Bock wins ISIPTA-IJAR Young Researcher Award

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.

ASAP 2015 Best student paper award

PhD student Cecilia Gonzalez-Alvarez has received the Best Student Paper Award at the ASAP 2015 Conference in Toronto, Canada. Congratulations!

AI that hallucinates

What is this?
It's an AI that hallucinates. It's interactive: you can tell it what to dream about!
"The AI in question was originally created to classify objects in images. Inspired by Google's inceptionism art, we have repurposed it to dream about these objects instead."

WELEK Robotcompetitie

Sinds 2008 organiseert de werkgroep elektronica van de IEEE student branch Gent samen met Dwengo vzw jaarlijks een robotcompetitie. De wedstrijd is uniek in zijn soort in die zin dat er jaarlijks een andere opdracht is en dat leerlingen van het secundair onderwijs het kunnen opnemen tegen studenten van het hoger onderwijs en/of alumni. De opdrachten zijn steeds zo gekozen dat ze haalbaar zijn voor beginners maar niet beknottend zijn voor ervaren robotbouwers. Daarom legt het reglement ook geen platformkeuze. Zo namen vorig jaar ongeveer 150 studenten deel met 55 robots uit Lego, K’nex, hout,… met daarop een Arduino, Dwenguino, RaspberryPi of Dwengo-bordje.

Op donderdag 30 april om 19u00 is het weer zover en duelleren zelfgebouwde sumo-robots in een-tegen-een gevechten met elkaar. Beide robots worden in een cirkel geplaatst en de eerste die er in slaagt om de ander uit de cirkel te duwen wint. Zoals bij de voorbije robotcompetities is het de bedoeling om met beperkte middelen een zo intelligent mogelijke robot te bouwen. Het team met de slimste en sterkste robot wint één van onze schitterende prijzen. De prijzenpot blijft voorlopig nog een verrassing, maar het wordt zeker de moeite!

Reservoir Lab wins prestigious competition in image recognition

On March 17th the team of Reservoir Lab at Ghent University won the National Data Science Bowl competition on Kaggle. Out of the 1049 teams they succeeded in winning the 100 000 dollar prize. The purpose of this competition was to automatically classify images of plankton. Their technique will now be used by the Hatfield Marine Science Center to follow the change in marine life and to map climate change.

TEDx talk on Interpreting Brain Signals with Machine Learning

On March 12, Dr. Pieter Buteneers (UGent - Reservoir Lab) will give a TEDx talk about his research on interpreting brain signals with machine learning, a branch of artificial intelligence. He currently uses Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) to analyze human brain signals in real-time, for example, in the case of early detection of epileptic seizures or to allow paralyzed people to communicate.

He is joined on the stage by Hugo Mercier, Carolyn Declerck and Michael Shermer, a well know TED speaker. The talk is followed by a discussion on Reasonable Doubt organised by Het Denkgelag.

Lichtfestival 2015

Ghent will blaze with light for the third time at the Light Festival from 29 January until 1 February 2015. The long-awaited third edition of this festival will run for four days with a festival route even longer than last time, along which you can see all kinds of light sculptures, spectacular projects and installations by contemporary national and international artists. Students will demonstrate experiments with light and Ghent University has created an interactive route with scientific light installations in the UFO building. Enjoy the walk and experience the surprising variety of light creations.

CMST - and partners - have created an installation using smart textiles and smart plastics.
The Liquid Crystals & Photonics group will show an installation about 3D displays, explaining how a 3D image can be created and observed.
