Robot That Can Learn, Think And Act By Itself

At the Hasegawa lab of the Tokyo Institute of Technology Japanese scientists have created a robot that can learn based on past experiences. The robot can think, learn and react to situations and teach itself new behaviours in an unsupervised manner.
The Self-Organizing Incremental Neural Network (SOINN) robot is described by its developers as “an unsupervised online-learning method, which is capable of incremental learning.”
SOINN learns through its own experiences, as well as through the large network of online information available to each robot model. Developers are now working on creating a robot that can multi-task, solving the problem of overly specialized robots.

NI LabVIEW Workshop

Hi everyone,
I am sure many of you had signed up for the workshop at the NI booth during the exhibition.

Well here it is. It is soon going to be April and as promised, we will be having the first National Instruments LabVIEW workshop here in UTAR, FES - Setapak Campus.
This workshop includes :
a) Hands on LabVIEW (each student will use 1 lab computer with LabVIEW installed)
b) Hardcopy Notes
c) Refreshments throughout the session
d) LUCKY Draw ! for 1 very lucky student

National Instruments is providing this workshop for free. However we need to charge a small sum to arrange the logistics for the event and most importantly to CONFIRM your attendance. There are very limited spaces therefore we can not afford people not turning up. RM 5 is a small sum for the things NI is providing especially this valuable opportunity to learn about LabVIEW's awesome Graphical Programming.

Please register and pay at the allocated time and place to confirm your slot in the workshop.

Date : 30th March - 1st April
Time : 12-2pm
Venue: UTAR Cafeteria

There are ONLY 28 slots per session. You only need to attend 1 session as both sessions are the same . Registration is on a first come first serve basis. The last day to pay up and confirm your registration is on 1st of April.

Stay tuned for more updates !

**Update : Another 10 slots per session is open because the new lab can accommodate 40 students ! Contact any of our committee if you are interested!
