As most of you have probably seen in the Tech Labs Newsletters, the Tech Labs have been working on a virtual neighborhood for studying burglary. These studies are a collaboration between the NSCR (Jean-Louis van Gelder), the University of Porstmouth (Claire Nee) and the Network Institute’s Tech Labs (Marco Otte). The previous version of the Virtual Environment was used in several studies including one carried out in British prisons using actual criminals.
Discovery Channel made a short documentary of this study which features our virtual neighborhood.
At the moment we are working on the second version of the neighborhood featuring many more houses with different features offering an even more realistic environment to use in studies.

The VU research on Regreening features in the new permanent exhibition of the Museon in The Hague. The exhibition interactively visualizes the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030. As content partner of the Museon, the W4RA programme of VU has contributed ideas, visuals and texts for the exposition related to SDG No. 15, entitled Plant in het Zand – Regreening. [more…]
Het Financieel Dagblad (approx. the Dutch Financial Times) invites somebody every Saturday to describe 4 books on their area of expertise that they think everybody should read. The asked me to write this week’s column, so I choose 4 books on AI that everybody should read.

2016 marks the tenth anniversary of the academic discipline of Web Science.
This volume celebrates Web Science in all its manifestation and the many directions in which it has developed over the 10 years of its existence. It highlights the events and institutions which continue to support its future development and, most importantly, the people of Web Science – from leading researchers to students around the world, with their hopes for the future. It celebrates the global network of WSTNet labs whose support has enabled Web Science to promote distinctive agendas – from Tsinghua in China to the Annenberg Network in California. It charts some of the key landmarks achieved in research, education, and thought leadership, and looks forward to what can be expected in the future from Web Science and its growing community.
Is modelling on your pc taking longer than getting a cup of coffee? Take now this four day course on High Performance Computing from 3-20 October at the VU.
The objective of this course is to learn how to use High Performance Computing for research activities. High Performance Computing refers to the practice of aggregating computing power in a way that delivers much higher performance than one could get out of a typical desktop computer in order to solve big data analysis. In this course you will learn about tools and workflows that you can use in your research to manage big data and/or big computation tasks. After the course you will have a broader and deeper knowledge and hands-on experience with HPC and data analytics to use in your own research.
The course will combine lectures with hands-on workshops. Examples from daily practice will be used. You will learn to use Linux computers and supercomputers to deploy computationally intensive tasks. To use cloud systems and Apache Spark software on the Hadoop cluster to perform big data analyses.
The course is designed for PhD students and researchers that want to improve their data computing skills. No basic skills are required. The lectures are provided by VU researchers in cooperation with SURFsara. A similar course had very positive reactions by participants at the University of Amsterdam.
Abstract Concepts: Debating Their Structure, Processing, and Modeling
