Declarative Languages and Systems
Luc De Raedt and his team have been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant for the SYNTH project on automated data science.
These very competitive grants are designed to allow outstanding research leaders to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects in Europe.
This five year project starts on September 1, 2016 and has a budget of about 2,5 million EURO.
More information about this project can be found on the website: http://synth.cs.kuleuven.be/
Answer Set Programming (ASP) is a field that facilitates the declarative specification of knowledge and its use for problem solving. After years of basic research, its industrial application is taking off. In 2015, we have worked together intensively with an industrial partner to build some proof of concept applications based on our IDP3 system, a member of the ASP family. These experiments confirmed the promise for a great reduction in development and maintenance cost but also showed that the IDP3 research prototype is not suited for industrial deployment.
On the 3th of May, the IEEE student branch organized a Soiree Technique
"Bitcoins: failed experiment or currency of the future?".
On Wednesday the 3th of May, the FITCE Belgium and the IEEE student branch Leuveninvite you to a Soirée Technique on bitcoins.
The event will start at 18:30 until 20:00, with a reception afterwards.
