AA Toren 7e verdiep (noord-oosthoek), Zwijnaarde 122

The Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics (AIDA) group at Ghent University is led by Prof. Tijl De Bie. Currently the group is comprised of 10 PhD students, 1 postdoctoral researcher, 1 Assistant Prof. and 1 Full Professor. The group is also part of the larger Internet Technology and Data Science Lab (IDLab) a joint research initiative between the University of Antwerp and Ghent University. The research at AIDA covers a wide range of topics in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data Science. More specifically, we conduct research on graph and text mining, social media analysis, recommenders (for example in the job market), bioinformatics, data visualization, and music information retrieval. Important themes covered in our research are interpretation and explainability of data and models, fairness, and privacy.

AI & Robotics Lab

Group discussion

Joni Dambre, Tony Belpaeme & Francis wyffels

Francis.wyffels@UGent.be

iGent, 8ste verdieping, open ruimte aan de liften

The AIRO lab (Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Lab, https://airo.ugent.be/) focuses on interdisciplinary research on robotics and AI research. AIRO is led by three professors - Joni Dambre, Tony Belpaeme and Francis wyffels - and covers fundamental and applied research in which a wide range of aspects of intelligent systems, from hardware to software, are studied. Large neural networks implemented on low-power computers, plants that acts as computers, social robots that try to become human, robot arms that fold the laundry, chatting robots that try to persuade you, computers that can translate sign language, ... AIRO’s research treads where traditional AI and robotics don’t go.

Analoog chipontwerp

Infomoment

Pieter Rombouts

CAS-labo, 12de verdieping iGent, Technologiepark Zwijnaarde 126

In deze demo geven we een overzicht van analoog en "Mixed-mode" chipontwerp in de Circuits en Systemen onderzoeksgroep. De toepassingen hiervan zijn in communicatie en sensorsystemen. Er zal een overzicht gegeven worden van de belangrijkste ontwerpsmethodes en enkele recente prototypes zullen gedemonstreerd worden.

Group discussion

Lieven Eeckhout

Lieven Eeckhout

campus Ardoyen, iGent building, meeting room 7.1

The goal of this session to have a discussion about the proposed master thesis proposals offered by PerformanceLab, the research group headed by Prof. Lieven Eeckhout. The sessions will involve a general introduction about the thesis topics and what to expect when pursuing a thesis in the group, followed by an interactive Q&A.

Info-moment for a Master thesis in the LCP-group

Info session

Jeroen Beeckman, Filip Beunis, Johan Lauwaert, Kristiaan Neyts, Filip Strubbe, Martijn van den Broek

filip.strubbe@ugent.be

Campus Ardoyen, iGent, vergaderzaal 7.1

The Liquid Crystals and Photonics research group (LCP) offers a range of Master thesis topics in the fields of liquid crystals, electro-optic modulators, criticality, laser-scanning microscopy, solar cells and optical trapping. Some topics are related to specific applications such as smart windows, smart contact lenses, solar cells, switching waveguides or nanoparticle and cell characterization. Other topics are more fundamental in nature. During the info moments an overview will be presented of the available Master thesis topics (iGent, +7). After this, a tour will be made in the research labs (iGent, -2).

Julia - GPU programming info session and demo

Demo/Infomoment

Bjorn De Sutter

thomas.faingnaert@ugent.be

Vergaderzaal 7.1, 7de verdieping, iGent, campus Ardoyen

In this session, we will demonstrate some key features of the Julia language and its GPU ecosystem. We will walk you through the different thesis topics that we prepared, and discuss how those more abstract proposals can become concrete research topics adapted to your personal preferences and interests. Moreover, we will discuss how we organise the actual thesis work and how we provide guidance, collaborate with Julia Computing, and help you develop your skills and competences. Of course, we will also answer all your questions.

Optical Microsystems

Info session

Jeroen Missinne, Geert Van Steenberge

jeroen.missinne@ugent.be

iGent building, Campus Ardoyen, meeting room 6.1, 6th floor

Our research team is developing optical microsystems, where the focus is both on design, fabrication (in the UGent cleanroom) and testing as to realize functional demonstrators. A first important research topic is “Photonic packaging” in which we investigate all aspects to transform a photonic chip into a photonic system. On the optical side, we develop technologies to send light in and out of a chip efficiently, using microlenses, or using laser-fabricated structures. On the electrical side, we develop technologies for printing of very fine and high-speed chip-to-chip interconnections.

Software and system security info session and Q&A

Infomoment

Bjorn De Sutter, Bart Coppens

bart.coppens@ugent.be

Lokaal 60.33.170.11, 7de verdieping iGent, campus Ardoyen

In this infosession, we will walk you through the master thesis topics that we have prepared in the field of software and system security. We will discuss what they are about, how they can still be customized for your interests, how we approach a master thesis and what support we offer for helping students improve their skills and competences.
