Science Café Tilburg - Stom toeval?

Share Button

Omdat een Science Café in Paradox momenteel niet mogelijk is, organiseert Science Café Tilburg op donderdag 28 mei een online Science Café.
Te gast is Klaas Landsman, hoogleraar wiskunde aan de Radboud Universiteit. Hij zal een korte lezing geven over toeval, waarna hij uw via chat gestelde vragen over dit onderwerp zal beantwoorden.

Je ging vorig jaar op Koningsdag net als duizenden anderen naar Amsterdam. Daar kwam je een bekende tegen. Is dat toeval? Of coïncidentie? Of synchroniciteit? Of is het juist wonderbaarlijk wanneer je toevallig géén bekende tegenkomt op zo’n dag? Verloor Nederland toevallig van Spanje in de WK-finale 2010? Toeval is een verschijnsel dat ons bezighoudt, het heeft iets magisch. Maar hoe kijkt een wetenschapper daar tegenaan? En wat is de rol van toeval in bijvoorbeeld het ontstaan van het heelal, de evolutie of genetische ziekten?

Landsman gaat vanavond in op al deze vragen én de nieuwe vragen die dat bij u oproept. Het online Science Café zal als vanouds worden gepresenteerd door journalist Ward Deckers en ook Wiwa is van de partij met een toepasselijk zelfgeschreven lied.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly becoming a disruptive technology with many applications. After a first wave of successful AI-based consumer applications, a second wave of AI-based industrial applications is on the horizon. The creation of these applications encompasses more than just the fields of data science and AI and includes engineering disciplines such as embedded systems, mechatronics, sensors, control theory, physics and more.

Research needs to be carried out in order to understand how to bridge the gap between engineering and AI. Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute (EAISI) and High Tech Systems Center (HTSC) have the pivotal role in connecting people and creating multi-disciplinary AI projects together with the industry.

On 29 October 2019, Eindhoven University of Technology will open its doors to everyone interested in artificial intelligence for high-tech systems. The symposium includes keynotes, masterclassesand presentations from industrial players and TU/e researchers. Furthermore, the exhibition will present many live demonstrations.

The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has recently changed its granting rules. As a result, universities in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom of The Netherlands qualify for NWO research funding. Scientist from these institutions can now act as main or co-applicants within all NWO calls for proposals. We would like to inform and involve you.

During this event NWO will also provide an update on the continuation of the Caribbean research programme, a strategic initiative to foster scientific research in (and about) the Caribbean. The programme will use a new approach, which is currently being developed. Some preliminary information can be found on the NWO-website.
