Wanted: Undergraduate Students interested in AI (Artificial Intelligence) or HW design

August 8th, 2012 Comments off

Yes, you read it correctly.  It’s a rare combination of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and HW (Hardware) design skills, that is in want.

There is a national and an international competition that is scheduled around October, on FPGA designs that can play the “Connect-6” game. The connect-6 game is a variation of “Five-in-a-Row” (or Omok as is called in Korea), and the trick is that you have to make a hardware in FPGA that can play the game in real-time. The timing constraint is 1 min, and you have to come up with the best solution within the min — otherwise you’ll forfeit your chance to make a move.

*Highlights of this competition

  • First place winner of the national level will be given a very prestigious MKE-ministry award (지식경제부 장관상).
  • National level winners will enter the international level.
  • International level winners will be recognized with cash prizes during an international conference (FPT), and their design summary will be published in the conference proceedings.

More details can be found in the conference website.

Sounds interesting?  Contact the lab. Don’t worry if you don’t have any knowledge/experience with AI or HW design — not expected (but you should be at least a junior majoring in ECE).

Front page changed

August 3rd, 2012 Comments off

Some dynamic elements are added to the front page, which now shows a slideshow instead of a random picture. The slideshow controls are also provided (previous, next, and pause/resume). The previous and next buttons are easy to spot, but where is the pause/resume button?

The answer is the page number.
