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 (

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 (, or visit the AI-Competition website:

Hope to see you soon!

We will be discussing the techniques used in breaking through security systems, malware analysis, and reverse-engineering all from the perspective of a professional hired to break into their own employer’s systems to find weaknesses in their defenses. We will also discuss the legal and ethical ramifications involved in such ventures.

If you’ve ever been interested in the concept or legality of hacking, stealing information from businesses or governments, or being hired to do so as an “ethical hacker,” this event is a must!

Lightning Lecture – New event series!

Incognito has a new event series!

Lightning Lectures are short (<20 min) lectures over intellectual topics intended to present a controversial point of view over a specific topic. These events are created, hosted, and presented by your fellow students!

Our first event is over the topic of World War 3:
Income inequality is rising at an unprecedented rate. Automization of the workforce threatens up to 2/3 of ALL JOBS, and for those without technical skills and degrees from universities, the situation is dire. By 2050 the UN estimates that close to 75% of all jobs in developing countries will cease to exist, leading to incredibly dire circumstances in countries already strained by globalization. Those who have little will have less, and those who have much will only accumulate even more wealth.

A huge societal restructuring is already underway, and the gap between the rich and the poor is massive and growing every day. Humanity stands at the precipice of a global crisis that is arguably bigger than WWI or WWII combined. Every person on Earth is affected by automatization and the consequences could lead to massive immigration crises, BILLIONS of economic refugees, and potentially hundreds of millions of deaths. This will not go quietly, and the powers that be will surely do everything they can to maintain their hold on the institutions that are at the heart of this crisis.

Let’s play Devil’s Advocate: is the prospect of all-out war such a bad thing in the end? In this lecture we will discuss the (likely) causes of the next World War, who the major players will be, and what the outcomes would be. Like a wildfire raging through a forest, destruction will be rampant – yet also like a forest fire, the destruction of institutions and redistribution of wealth and power could lead to newfound prosperity and an opportunity for humanity to re-evaluate its priorities and purpose both on Earth and amongst the stars.

(This lecture will be presented by Bachelor student Andrew Gold)

A secondary lecture over a similar topic will also be presented if there is enough time: What will be the catalyst that sparks World War 3? An assassination sparked World War 1, and an invasion sparked World War 2. Yet these events are increasingly unlikely in a modern world, where full-out invasions are impractical and assassinations much more difficult to pull off. In this brief lecture we will discuss the instability experienced in the Middle East, the major external players (Russia, China, USA) jockeying for power in the region, and the impact refugees have on the geopolitical strategy of major nations.

*** Please note: the opinions stated in these lectures are solely those of the presenters, and do not in any way represent the views of MSV Incognito or any of its affiliates. These lectures are for intellectual debate on the merits (or lack thereof) of the lectures being presented. Please keep in mind that respectful debate rules must be followed.

Double Guest Lecture – KafE Series: Lecture 0

Come join us for the first KafE lecture of the year! Each block, the education committee EduKatiE organizes a guest lecture covering intellectual topics usually pertaining to our study.

This time, we’re lucky enough to have two guest lecturers!
Caroline Calomme from UM’s Faculty of Law will open the evening with a short presentation about the faculty’s upcoming event regarding law and how it applies to technology.
This short presentation will be followed by our main lecturer, Pieter Collins of DKE. He will be presenting an introduction to functional programming, specifically in Haskell, covering all the differences between object-oriented programming and functional programming, and how languages like Haskell are fundamentally a different way of “thinking” in code.

This event will take place on a Wednesday, so don’t forget to bring your Incognito Member ID’s to get 20% off La Colombe’s entire menu all evening! See you there!


Game of Assassin



The Guild of Assassins is looking for new recruits to join their ranks. However, there is only one way to find out who is most worthy of this recognition: A massive game of sneaking, backstabbing and outright slaughter.

Incognito’s event committee, AKtiE, is running an assassination game from Tuesday November 1st until Friday November 25th. Every registered player will be given a target who they will have to kill by stabbing this target in the back with a plastic knife provided by us, thus proving that they are worthy of their spot in the guild. However, if you yourself get killed, you are out of the game and are not able to join back in. The winner of the game will be the last recruit standing or, in the case that by the deadline multiple people have avoided death’s grasp, the player still alive with the highest kill count will take the trophy.

We highly advise you to read through the rules since they are quite extensive.

Good luck recruits. May the best assassin win!
