Artificial Intelligence & Robotics (AIR)
Artificial Intelligence & Robotics
We all like to see robots act in the real world. However, a study programme is necessarily quite theoretical, especially in the first years. Students therefore sometimes indicate that they would like to see AI in practice, and work with real robots. If you are a student in the CS or DSAI bachelor programmes at Leiden University, and you recognize the above, then join the Artificial Intelligence & Robotics (AIR) challenge!
The competition runs throughout the entire academic year, where you compete in groups of 4-6 students.
During the year, you develop AI software to make your robot as strong as possible for the competition.
At the end of the year there is a public event (accessible for all students and teachers) where you compete for the award.
The challenge varies per year, but may for example involve Hide & Seek ('Verstoppertje'), Tag ('Tikkertje'), Football ('Voetbal'), etc.
Participation in the project counts as 2 extra-curricular ECTS (appear on your diploma, but only as extra credits).
