Ik werd weer eens getriggerd, ditmaal door fiksen met ks. In veel takken van wetenschap is er de ambitie om het beter en eenvoudiger te maken. Twee mooie principes van innovatie/Ockham. Bij taal echter lijkt het er op dat we accepteren dat de ontwikkeling er een van het degenererende soort is. Hoe je iets schrijft [...]
Already more than a month ago, finally I've got the photo's of the RobotChallenge on my web site. The robotchallenge in Vienna is an international event where teams compete in different challenges. Chaekith Chandranna and I participated in the Parallel Slalom and Enhanced Parallalel Slalom challenges. The robotchallenge was a very nice experience. No prizes [...]
Since September I work for Amgate where I recently started to develop iPhone apps. To get an impression you can visit the Amgate App Center.
Soms wens je je dat je nooit die cursus logica had gevolgd.
Since September 2007 I am doing the MSc Computational Intelligence and Robotics course in Leicester. This is somewhat similar to artificial intelligence, but it is slightly more focussed towards applications of AI and less focussed on the research towards human intelligence. Moreover I have applied for the RobotChallenge in Vienna. The picture shows the robotdog AIBO, which I will probably use in the competition.
In the week of new year (2005/2006) we were (Sylvia and I) in Zell am Ziller for wintersports. The skiing area, Zillertal Arena, was very good, we visited the different subareas on different days. During the week I nearly skied all the slopes once. Rob Muntz (environmental knights) also visited the Zillertal, het points at the environmental effects related at global warming as a result of skiing. Well as long as skiing is possible and affordable you can still find me annually on the skiing slopes. The photos will soon be added to the website.
Roderik (I), Sylvia and Tanja went for wintersports in Lenggries. Information regarding wintersports, hotel and so forth can be found at wintersport page.
The photos of the holiday can be found at the photo page.
Yearly in between christmas and new year I enjoy solving the Dr. Denker rebus puzzle. Like every year the puzzle consisting of of 40 rebusses could be found in the Dagblad van het Noorden (regional newspaper targeting the north of The Netherlands). U can find the puzzle of 2007 on the website. On the blog you can exchange your findings regarding the puzzle of 2007.
Christmas eve, a moment to look out for, the national science quiz. Yearly 20 extraordinary multiple choice questions that are open to a lot of discussion and reconsideration are published in news papers and television guides. The atmosphere of the quiz including its experiments is a feast, currently with Denvis, not bad, but the absurdistic presentation of Wim T Schippers is unsurpassed. Its a shame he won't pick it up again after the sad event some years ago of the premature publication of the questions.
With the top management of Archytas, Marinus, and I, Roderik, we've been to the 'Design your own future' event at Philips in Eindhoven. Philips strategy is to rule the market with their connected planet concept and with e-ink (but actually Sony will bring that to the market). Photography was not allowed, and of course there was (free) beer available...
Unfortunately, after a relationship of approximately 5 year, since last november I am single again. Allthough I am like an einzelgänger from time to time, to my relationship I was still very attached. OkCupid looks at similarities which is a concept that I also wanted to develop for a dating site. So you're idiosyncratic and want to become friends with me or risk a relationship with me to go, try the match me test then once .Take My MatchMe Test
