Underground party

Tuesday the 10th Incognito organises together with Luna-Tik (Psychology) a great party in the backstage! Get your ticket now in the presale!

Last chance to buy your tickets is on monday or tuesday in the commonroom! And don’t forget to bring all your friends πŸ˜€ This is THE great party of the year, together with psychology. Last year it was a great succes and with this year’s lineup we are bound to exceed that by far. 303F is a great duo with a live act including mixing, percussion and manny more.. they have been @ Dance Valley, Impulz, and the day after Underground they leave for a tour in Miami 😎 The Indie rock band Kensington is a big name from Utrecht, who have played across the entire country. And to end it all we have our great ‘faculty DJ’, DJ dajero! You don’t want to miss this for sure!

Paintball photo’s

Monday the 12th we went paintballing with 26 people in Belgium. After 4 hours of shooting, running, tactics, dodging bullets, and teamwork, I think it is safe to say it was a great activity and everyone was enthousiastic about it. The pictures are now online in the pictures section.

KafE 3 Automatic pupil detection for a video eye tracker

The presentation can be found here.

Tuesday the 6th of May we have already the 3rd edition. This night’s speaker will be Stephan Jansen, a phD student on our faculty. It will start at 20:00 in the Ma van Sloun on the 2nd floor.

A small introduction on the subject of his talk:

In medicine, there are studies of the relation between eye movements and balance disorders / dizziness. In 1995, a clinical video eye tracker (a goggle equipped with small cameras) was designed. Now, there is the need for algorithms to track the eye movements automatically. The easiest way to design an eye tracker algorithm, is to follow the pupil, and in particular, the pupil center.
The research is focused on designing and implementing a pupil detection algorithm, which is able to perform real-time, robust and with high-precision.

From the knowledge engineering point of view: Image analysis, edge detection algorithms, ellipse fitting and optimization techniques are terms that will be discussed in the presentation. Furthermore, some information of eye movements and balance disorders will be explained by showing some interesting videos.

Bowling results

After a nice hour of bowling yesterday we had to make up the results and saw that Maarten had won with an amazing end of 3 strikes on a row. What a fabulous bowl specialist he is!!

The beginning was a bit conservative, because the players had some trouble to handle the ball and the lane in a correct way. But after three shots of rosé wine and a couple of beers, the ball felt perfect and Maarten could find the pins almost without watching. At the end a lot of opponents wanted to learn the fabulous “Poeth-technique” to throw the ball so accurately in the direction of the pins. His wonderfull technique means a new era in bowling and I think we will see it on TV within short time.

Bowling

Tuesday the 22nd we are going to play bowl. Join us by sending a mail to incognito@micc.unimaas.nl . We start at 18:00 with fries at the faculty, and then go bowling at 18:30 at the Brusselse Poort. Read the email for more information.
