Secret Of Monkey Island

What is the secret of monkey island? many strong men and women have pondered this question for ages. On Monday the 13th of April from 19:00 until 22:00 you will be the new innitiates who will try to find an answer to this question.

You will have to run, climb, jump, evade and show that you are strong enough to face the truth that lies behind the secret. The location of the island is Sportzaal Biesland at Athoslaan 24 (maastricht), but beware, you might not return in one piece.

To join you will have to bring the monkey gods a sacrifice of 5 euros, in return the gods will provide some drinks and snacks to aid you on your quest.

If you think you are worthy, fill in the form below so we know how many allies we will have during our quest.

Good Luck!

(p.s. for the dutch people, yes this is apenkooien)

Movie Night! TOY STORY

It’s time for movie night. We are probably going to watch Toy Story, starting from the first one and see how far we get. Bring a pillow, let’s get cozy and relive our childhood!
It’s on the second floor of De Twee Heeren, not the first one.

The Movie Night will be on Wednesday, March the 25th, starting at 8pm

KafE: From Guess Engineering to Knowledge Engineering

Room 2, all the way upstairs!!!

It’s time for KafE! This time Pieter Collins returns with a follow up talk about his software tool Ariadne, Don’t worry if you missed last years talk (Verification of Cyber-Physical Systems), this is for everyone: from first year bachelors to his fellow colleagues.

Abstract: Although computers are capable of performing trillions of logical and arithmetical operations without making a single error, most computational mathematical software makes so many (tiny) approximations that the results are really only a (very good) guess. For us knowledge engineers, this really isn’t good enough, we want to know for sure our results are correct!

For many years I have been working on a software tool “Ariadne” for proper, rigorous numerical computation with real numbers providing guaranteed bounds on all errors made. The original aim, as discussed in my previous KafE talk “Verification of Cyber-Physical Systems”, was to be able to prove that dynamic control systems, like robots, do what you want them to. But since this problem requires us to rigorously solve all kinds of difficult problems in continuous mathematics, the tool also provides a C++ library and Python scripting environment for general-purpose rigorous numerical computation. In this talk, I will give you a tutorial on the design and use of Ariadne, a tour-de-force of knowledge engineering combining logic, algebra, calculus, numerics, simulation, optimization, data structures and modelling, with some things which you don’t know but should, like interval arithmetic. I will also talk about the development process, which will mostly be explaining all the things that can go wrong if you don’t apply what you learnt in your software engineering course.

Block Openings drink 4

Block 4 is here, and to already prepare everyone for what is to come, we will already start the block off with a little brain trainer. we will be having a PUB QUIZ to start off this block openings drink. In this quiz we will test you on general knowledge. during this drink we will alsoo start a little something called “THE DARE INITIATIVE” but this will be explained at the drink itself.

The drink will be held on Wednesday, 4 Februari 2015, starting at 20:30. As usual, the drink will be at café De Twee Heeren, Platielstraat 17-19, Maastricht. We have our own room upstairs, you can get there by taking the door on the right side of the cafe, or on the left side of the bar (you might have to ask a bartender to open the door for you).
Beer, as usual, is a coin each. 1 coin is 1.50, but you can also get 4 coins for 5 euros (1.25 each)

Slacklining Workshop for Beginners

10472818_10203974504100804_2498767763631941446_o

Slacklining is a practice in balance that typically uses nylon or polyester webbing tensioned between two anchor points. Many people suggest slacklining is distinct from tightrope walking in that the line is not held rigidly taut (although it is still under some tension); it is instead dynamic, stretching and bouncing like a long and narrow trampoline.

tl;dr just watch this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUc9G0cH3k0

This workshop is for people who are curious about slacklining and want to try it out. It’s inside at the gym with thick maths underneath the line, so ultra safe!
Costs: member-3euro -//- non-member-4euro
Bring along: water bottle – loose clothing – bare feet – good mood

Tyas Prevoo will be our instructor. He has been doing the sport for almost 10 years. Tyas is a really cool guy and a good teacher 🙂 He’s also one of the first people who started slacklining in the Netherlands. Very qualified 😀

The indoor space is capable of holding 15 people so we have 15 spots! Register fast by filling in this form:

See you on Saturday!

Now that some of you have gotten somewhat skilled with the sword during the introduction weekend, it is now time to test your abilities with the bow and arrow.

This will take place on Monday the 6th of October.

It is highly recommended to come by bike since the shooting range is rather far away. We will be leaving at the Koningin Emmaplein around 18:30, so let’s meet there at 18:25.

eventually we will make our way here.

It is still possible to come by foot but it will take you some time to get there.

The prices are €7,50 for members and €8,50 for non-members. please bring this money in cash.

to participate you will have to sign up below.

 

Poker night

It is time to get your gameface on and put your newly acquired knowledge from your maths subjects to the test.
On the 23rd of September we will be having a casual poker night at our usual spot, upstairs at De Twee Heeren at 20:00.

The price will be 1 euro for members and 2 euro for non members.
We will supply some snacks and special prices for the winners. For drink however you will have to go downstairs and get it at the bar.

introduction weekend

At the end of September, Incognito will have this year’s Introduction Weekend! From Friday the 26th of September until Sunday the 28th of September, we will spend a weekend in a land far far away to get to know each other a little bit better and hopefully make a lot of bff’s 😀

This year, we have an awesome theme connected to it: Faction Wars! This means that you will be able to fight for your faction and earn valor and recognition.

The different universes that factions competing in Faction Wars will be from are:
-The Lord of the Rings
-Harry Potter
-World of Warcraft
-A Song of Ice and Fire
-Star Wars

Don’t worry about the entire weekend being full of role-playing, though; this is just the theme we decided to set the camp up with. The goal of the camp is to get to know each other and have fun! In this same spirit, there will also be no strange initiation rituals!

The price for this weekend is 30 euro for Incognito Members and 40 for non-Incognito members. You will be able to register for the weekend by going to http://www.msvincognito.nl/incognito/introweekend/ and filling out the form.

We still need cars to be able to get to the weekend! If you have a car and/or a driver’s license, let us know! Transportation costs will of course be covered by Incognito.
