As part of the Robot Love project for the Dutch Design Week 2018, a chatterbot called PIP has been conceived. During this presentation we will explain the ideas and technologies behind PIP.
First about the history of psychological chatterbots, like PIPs sister Eliza and her maker Prof. Joseph Weizenbaum. Also some of PIPs character, language, preferences and his/her/its behavior, will be revealed.
Next, Marc will show you what is going on in PIPs brain and give some tips about building your own chatbot.

Afterwards you will be able to have a revealing chat with PIP yourself!

19:30 - 21:30 - MakeSense Worldwide SenseTech Week by Coby Zephyr Babani & Max Bouillon
Good ideas are in the head of many of us. We identify problems in society, and maybe even come up with solutions to them. What holds us back from further developing our program might be a lack of knowledge about social and environmental enterprises. To fill this lack, we invite Coby Zephyr Babani and Max Bouillon, who suggest, that everyone can be a social entrepreneur. Through the expertise they gathered in leading Sapient Social & Environmental Enterprises and MakeSense NL, they aim to take down our fence of creation angst.

20:30 - 21:30 - Privacy checkup by Elwin Levels
Wifi tracking, data mining, traffic analysis; without realising it a lot of your personal information is being exposed daily in mostly sneaky ways.
While privacy is fortunately getting more attention in the media, what usually lacks are the ways in which you yourself can be much more in control over what you share.
In this privacy checkup Elwin will discuss a number of known and lesser known tools and settings that will greatly improve your on- & offline privacy on your connected devices.

20:30 - 21:30 - Decred blockchain by Noah Pierau
