Lunch Lecture ICD - Astron

Thursday 25 April 2019 12:30, tba [LEX]

On behalf of Innovatie Cluster Drachten Dr Ir Albert Jan Boonstra from Astron will give a lunchlecture. The lecture will be about artificial intelligence of the LOFAR radiotelescope.


The LOFAR radiotelescope from Astron consists of 100.000 antennas that catch weak signals from space. A complex system of hardware and software translates these signals to star maps.

On daily basis datasets are produced of about 100 terabyte. Yearly 7 petabyte of compressed data is saved in the archives. This data has to be checked on correctness. Systemfaults, as malfunctioning of a part of the antennas, an amplifier or a data transport connection, have to be found. Then they have to be mentioned to the astronomer that uses this data for his research. Finding all faults in such a big data system as LOFAR is not easy, since it is a complex system and a big amount of data. Manual inspection is not possible, one observation is around 8000 pictures. Artificial intelligence is the solution! It appears that a neural network is suitable to automatically detect malfunctioning. In the lecture I will give more information on the LOFAR radiotelescope, the challenge to find the malfunctions and the first results of the neural network at work.

So come by for an interesting lecture and free lunch!

Quality Agreements Lunch

Friday 26 April 2019 12:30, Carre 2M [STUDI]

Since a couple of years Dutch students get a student loan instead of a scholarship. By the introduction of this policy, a budget has become available which can be used to improve the quality of education. A special feature of this budget is that the opinion of teachers and students is also taken into account. What does this mean? You get to determine what topics should get more attention! In this lunch we will give you more information on the ins and outs of these “Quality Agreements”. After this we will hold a discussion to come up with points that you really want to see in the educational system or points that can improve the study.


Past year some of the budget was already used. Scintilla itself got a budget to offer better and more diverse courses, which we do with MasterCLASS. Besides this, the faculty is trying to create more space for both lecture halls and study spaces. In addition to this, the MyDAC is currently given to the first year students for free, with a €100,- deposit. In the previous years students had to buy these devices with a possibility to sell them for 50% of the price. Other effort has been put in more actual teaching time for teachers by relieving them of the administration, an increased space for laboratories and more power sockets in project rooms.
