Zeppy on television

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:16 am by Matthijs

Logo of RTV Noord Well, we’ve had our 15 minutes of fame! Drop all your science-work: Hollywood, here we come!

But seriously: we’ve been on regional television with Zeppy! As part of a show called “De week bekeken” (”A look at the past week”), we’ve answered some questions about Zeppy and Artificial Intelligence in general. We also showed some of the capabilities of Zeppy and have flown around with him. As you’ll notice when viewing the clip ‘we’ are still the ‘old’ team, but the new team is also very busy with Zeppy, so you can expect a new blog-post from them soon.

We’ll hopefully receive a high-quality version of the video-clip very soon to replace this one.

Also, next wednesday (april 9th) at 13 o’clock, we will hold our final presentation about the project in the Bernoulliborg in Groningen!

Zeppy and the JJC

Posted in General at 12:00 pm by Matthijs

To show what can be done with AI, our studentgroup Cover organised a small colloquium for the first year students of Artificial Intelligence and Informatics, as well as other interested people. This was called the JJC, which is a Dutch abbreviation for the lower-years colloquium.

And guess what?

Zeppy was the subject of this colloquium! We had prepared a short 30 minute presentation to show what the project is about and how it all worked, which was held by Matthijs. You can view the slides of this presentation at the end of this blogpost!
And of course we held a demonstration, flying over the heads of the students, showing the software and hardware.

Despite a somewhat low turn-up there were a lot of enthousiastic responses as well as quite a few interesting discussion points!
It’s nice to see people react so positive and interested to the things we do, it keeps us focused as well! ;)
