Researchers' Night 2011

Researchers' Night 2011

Friday 23rd of September, the 7th Researchers' Night event took place at NTNU. 1200 high school students had signed up for an interesting night at the university; with 31 stands, 6 lectures, and 3 lab excursions, which presented some of the ongoing research at NTNU.

The doors opened at 20:00 and fireworks marked the end of the event, around 23:30. The Researchers' Night event is part of the Norwegian Science Week (forskningsdagene), which is a nationwide annual event held to bring research and science to the public.

This year IDI was represented with three stands:

  1. Associate Professor Anne C. Elster, Post Doctoral Fellow Ian Karlin, PhD candidate Rune Erlend Jensen and master students from the Algorithms, HPC and Graphics research group demonstrated how small super computers can be used for real time 3D simulations of for example 1-2 million snow particles.
  2. Professor Pauline Haddow, Adjunct Associate Professor Anders Kofod-Petersen and their master students presented how artificial intelligence can be used to control robots and intelligent doors.
  3. Associate Professor Alf Inge Wang (photo) and PhD candidate Bian Wu demonstrated Alf Inge's latest computer game concept.
