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!
