Axel Tidemann from our research group was recently featured in Newton, Norway’s most popular scientific program for a younger audience. There, he demonstrated his work on the artificially intelligent drumming bot SHEILA that is capable of learning to drum by imitating human players. See the clip here.
Members of our research group have been woring on designing a robotic platform that is freely available to anyone who want to build their own robots. The project, led by Professor Pauline Haddow, aims to make robots for swarm robotics that have an affordable price, are available to anyone and have a wide range of possibilities. More info about the project can be found in this recent article from our departments’ news, or at the ChIRP home page.
Sigve Hovda will start as a PostDoc at IDI early 2014. Sigve has his PhD in statistics, and has been working at Verdande Technology doing pattern recognition on oil-well drilling data since 2008. He will give a gentle introduction to what he has been doing lately, more precisely on something he has called “Pseudometrics in kernel density estimation”.
This lecture will take place in room 354, Friday December 13th at 12:00. The talk will last for about 30 min.
Pizzas are served, so please tell Helge before Wednesday evening if you are attending (note that you have to fiddle around with the email address).

The lecture will take place in room 454, Friday, November 29th at 12.00.
Wednesday the 13th of November, the Department of Computer and Information Science, the Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Society and the GEMINI Centre for Applied Artificial Intelligence are happy to host the second meeting in Trondheim Big Data.
The meeting will include:
- Why is CBR so popular?
- Anders Kofod-Petersen, Telenor Research and Department of Computer and Information Science;
Odd Erik Gundersen, Verdande Technology
- Discussions and mingling
The meeting starts at 18:00 in ITV 454.
Data analysis and forecasting modelling is vitally important for many application. Among them an ongoing Norwegian initiative on developing technologies for offshore wind energy. Uni Research as NORCOWE partner focuses on the AI application for improving weather and energy yield forecast for both long and short time scales. During last three years several projects, both in the academic and the private sector, have been completed. The projects were based on Artificial Neural Network models of different kind: e.g. feed forward network, self-organizing map, etc. Two show cases will be presented in the proposed seminar.
Last Friday, the Intelligent Transportation Systems Laboratory was officially opened in a small ceremony at the Department of Computer and Information Science.
On the 14th of March the STARTntnu held the Kreator exhibition at Realfagsbygget. The goal of the exhibition is to inspire students and other visitors to create and explore new ideas. The GEMINI center was invited to participate with their “intelligent traffic lights”.
