Block Opening Drinks 1: Pimp my t-shirt!

The academic year has started which means it is once again time to get together and have an opening drink on Wednesday night, September 6 2017, hosted by MSV Incognito!

The goal of the drink is having a good time and meeting your new fellow students. In that light, we want to ask everyone to bring a white t-shirt for other people to write on. If you don’t own any (old) white t-shirts Zeeman sells them. However, we will also sell them at the event ifor the same price.We will be providing markers but feel free to bring your own

This year we have a new venue for our BOB’s at Hotel & Restaurant el Pichón, Markt 30 in Maastricht. We will be there with our own space and outside area. You can always ask a bartender in case you can’t find it.

Coins are €1.50 each for members, non-members pay €2,00 per coin.
Beers, as usual, are 1 coin each.
Cocktails are for 3 coins each.
Wine and soft drinks will be served for normal cash at the bar.

Hope to see you there!

New website

Hello there!

As you might have noticed, the look of our website has changed! This was done because our previous theme wasn’t updated in the past couple years and was therefor insecure. We decided to remove the old theme immediately because having a secure website is the most important! The current look is not necessarily final and a couple things feel a bit out of place and it will continue to change. It’s nothing fancy with flying colours and everything. But it’s clean, simple and quite readable. For now it can do the job.

However, we believe there is room for improvement, so if you have some feedback, big or small, please let us know at it@msvincognito.nl!

– The MSV Incognito IT committee

P.S.
Since some of you might have never seen the old website, here it is for a quick comparison. The left is the look of 2015-2017 and on the right the current look:

And if we’re going even further back, this was the comparison after the 2013 update. The left was the look of pre-2013 and on the right the 2013-2015 look:

CERN Big Data Analytics Presentation

Come join Incognito and Alberto Di Meglio from the world-famous CERN lab on the 23rd of June at Tapijnkazerne Building Z for a presentation on what it means to work for CERN, what the scientists do, what projects are currently being worked on, and what opportunities exist for students to work with CERN.

After the presentation, we will have beer, coffee, tea, and snacks for those who want to stick around, ask questions, and engage in discussion.

This event is brought to you with special thanks to DKE alumnus Taghi Aliyev, who now is doing his Ph.D at CERN in Geneva. Alberto is Taghi’s supervisor, and Alberto will describe the work they do, as well as how you as a student can eventually get involved with large scientific endeavors such as CERN and their Openlab group.

General Assembly

On 20th June, we are hosting our General Assembly (GA). These GAs are the best time for you to voice your opinions about the association and really help us improve. We will be having it in Bouillonstraat 8-10 in room 0.015, from 18:30 to 20:30. The minutes from the last GA can be requested from the board via email or PM.

*SIGN UP LINK*
https://goo.gl/forms/hcreBFkZ5JZ77PyK2

A yearly tradition to blow off steam from a long year of studies, come join us at Paintball Arena just outside of Maastricht to shoot your friends! (We know you’ve thought about it at least once…) This year we will go to shoot each other on the 18th of June

The cost for this event is 27,50 euros. we will play for 4 hours from 1pm till 5pm. You are able to buy extra bullets, these will be 8 euros for an extra 100 bullets. We will be playing many games like capture the flag or the generic team deathmatch. We will provide you with some refreshments and snacks but you are always allowed to bring your own as well.

For those who have never paintballed before: You’ll be given the following:
– A camouflage onesie to cover your normal clothes (so no stains!)
– A full-face mask to cover your head and neck
– A paintball gun (called a “marker”)
– A package of 140 paintballs (more are available for purchase separately)

We will be leaving at 11:30AM from the parking lot behind Maastricht’s central station (at the meerssenerweg). If you can provide us with a car to help get your fellow students there please note this down when making your registration, the fuel costs will be reinbursed by incognito. Also, for the drivers, the destination will be Paintball Arena, Binnenvaartstraat 53, 3530 Houthalen, Belgium.

Paintballs travel about 300 feet per second (91.4 meters per second) and explode on impact. They’re filled with an environmentally friendly, washable “paint” and don’t hurt nearly as much as people expect they would. They hit hard enough so that you know you’ve been hit, but the guns provided to us won’t be powerful enough to hurt you.

For our final BOB of the academic year, we’re bringing you fun in the sun and drinks on the beach by hosting a Beach/Hawaiian theme BOB! Come relax at our luau with some limbo and tropical cocktails on the 14th of June .

AI Competition Lecture: Game AI

 

As everyone knows, in cooperation with CodePoKE we are doing an AI competition for the game “Hunter Killer,” a 2-dimensional game designed to test your ability to program AI bots that will defeat your opponents as quickly and efficiently as possible.

To help students in the competition, projects, and most importantly, life in general: upcoming Wednesday (3rd of May, 16:00) a guest lecture will be given at the Tapijn Kazerne – Building Z.
This lecture will outline the various AI techniques used in the (game) industry, the current state of game AI, and how game AI differs from academic AI.
Or in better terms: how to deal with real world constraints when programming AI.
This lecture is the first in a sequence of two lectures, with the latter outlining how to design for AI from an implementation perspective.

Focus group: Bachelor students of DKE (all years)
Techniques covered: FSM, Behavior Trees, Planner Techniques, and more experimental techniques (for the industry): Search Techniques, and the rise of Machine Learning – Neural Networks.
Topics covered: Artificial versus Perceived Intelligence (Barks, Emergicents)
Games covered: Killzone Series, Horizon New Dawn, Killer Instinct, Batman Series, Greed Corps, Xenonauts
See: http://ai.codepoke.net

Incognitos Business Day

It is with great excitement that we are announcing the 2017 edition of DKE’s business day. Every year, our department along with Incognito organizes a day where students get to listen and talk to companies ranging from startups to multinationals. Here is the information about this year’s edition:
 
Date: Wednesday 24th May 2017
Time: 15:45 – 18:30
Location: Tapijn, Building Z
Dress code: Business casual/Job interview
Registration: Free but there is a sign up required ( https://goo.gl/forms/C2vGR6DUsJn3ugYr2 )
 
This is a great opportunity for students of all years to talk to potential employers in order to grow their personal network and perhaps find a place where they can someday do an internship, a thesis or even start a career. We will slowly be announcing the companies in the run up to the event so make sure you keep an eye on this event and our page!
 
During the day, each company will present during 10 minutes and will try to show why they are an employer that understands the challenges of a constantly more data-driven and smarter world. After the presentations, speed dates with representatives will be organized so that each student can talk to each company in person. The day will end with an informal drink.
 
We are looking forward to seeing you during the day. More info will be given about the companies and the day itself through e-mail, Facebook as well as our website.

CodePoKE AI Competition

From April 30th to May 18th MSV Incognito, in co-operation with CodePoKE, will be hosting their 4th AI-Competition! We invite you all to a competition for fame, glory and …. obviously, rewards. The competition is designed to give every student, regardless of year, a chance at winning.

The focus of this competition is the game “Hunter Killer“, a 2-dimensional turn-based, hidden-information, multi-agent strategy game. Hunter Killer is a complex game and will most certainly test your AI skills and/or cunning to the limit. However, do not be intimidated by its complexity! To ensure that everyone can compete in this event, two lectures will be hosted by members from CodePoKE which outline various ways to approach the problem and detail AI techniques you could use. The game itself is fully implemented, and utility logic is provided to make implementing a bot as easy as possible.

During the competition, the CodePoKE office will be open every Sunday for students to sit together and work. For more information on the schedule, rules of the competition, or the contents of the presentations, please visit the AI-Competition website (http://ai.codepoke.net).

What will be expected of you?
– You will write a player that can play the game by itself.
– Have your player play / test against others.
– Try to attain as high of an ELO rating as you can.
– Be present for the finals on Thursday May 18th at CodePoKE (starts @ 16:00).

For any further questions you may have, please do not hesitate to contact CodePoKE (info@codepoke.net), or visit the AI-Competition website: ai.codepoke.net

Hope to see you soon!
