EUROBOT is an international youth competition (predominantly students) in the field of robotics that is held every year in another country. The first competition was held in 1994 with nine teams from four countries, while last year around 50 teams from 30 countries gathered. Only three teams from each country can take part in the competition.

The competition takes place by creating a robot with completely new features every year. The EUROBOT Judicial Committee in September formulated a task for which team resolution should be realized next year by robots. The realization of such devices is a very serious and complex task, so students make a great effort to bring them to the competitive level.

This year’s EUROBOT Serbia 2017 competition took place in Novi Sad on April 9th. Teams from the Faculty of Technical Sciences, MSM-RV, M41 + and Memristor, won the first three places and placed in the final EUROBOT 2017 competition in France.

Microsoft Development Center in Serbia and Petnica Research Center are organizing summer school “Machine Learning”, from July 21 to 30, 2017.

Microsoft Development Center in Serbia and Petnica Research Center invite interested students to apply for participation in the International Summer School “Machine Learning Petnica Summer Institute”, which will be held from July 21 to July 30, 2017.

Participants of the seminar will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and understanding of machine learning through intensive all-day activities that include both theoretical and practical work. The International Summer Seminar will be held in English.

All interested students of technical and natural faculties can apply for the Summer School of Machine Learning in Petnica, especially those in the final years of elementary studies and graduates. Knowledge of programming and / or mathematics is desirable and will be considered a plus.

As one of the most innovative branches of computer science, machine learning is a set of programming techniques that allows computers to extract correctness from existing data, based on which they independently make complex programs that can then “lock” themselves and make predictions on completely new data.

Seminar participants will be able to learn and work on many interesting projects based on machine learning, such as identifying key features of a person with photos, creating artificial images, text-based text detection, automatic language recognition based on a short text example and many other tasks.

The deadline for applications is March 13, 2017.
