Langegracht 70, Leiden
During this evening we bring the world of robotics to Leiden. A broad variety of speakers will bring their robots and tell everything there is to know about robotics. Both Scientists and Entrepreneurs shed their lights on the current and future possibilities of robots, the impact on society and the ethics regarding these changes!
The program for the night:
17:00 - Walk in
17:30 - Roy de Kleijn
17:45 - Joost Broeken
18:00 - Break for drinks
18:15 - Speaker to be announced
18:30 - OpenHAARD session with Chris Verhoeve
19:00 - Free dinner and networking drinks

Dutch Nao Team – Patrick de Kok
With a team of bachelor and master students artificial intelligence of the University of Amsterdamand Maastricht University, the Dutch Nao Team lets robots play soccer fully autonomous. They succefuly compete in matches around the world. We let them see with their cameras, hear with their microphones and communicate over wifi in order for them to function without a human controller.
Joost Broekens – TU Delft
Joost Broekens received a MSc degree in Computer Science at the University of Delft, The Netherlands, in 2001. In 2007 he received his PhD in computer science at the University of Leiden, The Netherlands, in the area of computational modeling of emotion in relation to learning processes. He has published in the area of computational models of emotion (ranging from theoretical approaches to more applied ones), developed master-level courses and course material on the topic, and has given several invited lectures as well as less formal talks for the larger public related to Affective Computing.
Joost is also CTO and co-founder of Interactive Robotics, a company that develops human-robot interaction technology focussing on robot audience interaction, for example at schools and business events. For more info, please consult the website.
OpenHAARD session with Chris Verhoeven – HUBspot
Chris J.M. Verhoeven was born in the Hague, the Netherlands, on February 25, 1959. He received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Delft University of Technology in 1985. In 1985 he joined the Electronics Research Laboratory of the same department in order to prepare a Ph.D. dissertation on "first order oscillators". He received the doctoral degree in 1990.
At present he is an associate professor at the Electronics Research Lab. He is the project leader of the group "Structured Electronic Design", in which design methodology for synthesis of analog basic circuits is addressed. To date the main topics are wide band amplifiers, bandgap references and oscillators, with an accent on low power and low voltage circuits for RF, and also optimal application of technology. The topics in this field are the application of SiGe technology in exponential low-power RF-circuits and application of Single Electron Tunnelling technology for implementation of efficient neural devices.
