On Friday October 2, we hosted another Ada Lovelace breakfast in SwarmLab :-)
On Saturday 19.09.2015, Sanaz gave a lecture about Swarm Intelligence in KinderUni at the University of Magdeburg. After the lecture, the children (8 to 12 years old) attended a swarm game. It was really nice! Thanks to our KinderUni students :-)
Kei Harada from Doshisha University, Kyoto (Japan) visited our lab for about 6 months. The members of Lab organized a farewell party for him:
We enjoyed working with Kei and hope that he visits us very soon again!
Axel Garcia and the Team Machete from the course Computational Intelligence in Games won the first prize in the Fighting Game Competition at the IEEE Computational Intelligence in Games Conference, which was held from 31 August to 2 September 2015 in Taiwan:
