Graffathon 2018 käynnissä Otaniemessä – elektronisen taiteen hackathonissa kisataan koko viikonloppu

Elektronisen taiteen tapahtuma Graffathon alkoi Otaniemessä, Urban Millissä perjantaina 8.6. ja se kestää viikonlopun ylitse. Graffathon on hackathon, jossa paikan päällä luodaan demo, eli epäinteraktiivinen audiovisuaalinen ohjelma. Tapahtumaa on järjestetty DOT ry:n toimesta vuodesta 2013 lähtien, tosin aivan aluksi se tunnettiin nimellä CAG, eli Code+Audio+Graphics. Tapahtumassa on myös aloittelijoille suunnattuja opettavaisia esityksiä sekä muita teknologiaan ja demotaiteeseen liittyviä esityksiä.

Tapahtumaa voi seurata DOT ry:n Youtube-kanavan tapahtumastreamistä: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9p1WlkGpo3A on nykyinen lähes reaaliajassa päivittyvä streami sekä https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1usY8hzlnR4 on streamistä otettu erillinen tallenne, joka koskee tapahtuman aloitusohjelmaa. Tapahtuman aikataulu on osoitteessa http://www.graffathon.fi/2018/schedule/.

Graffathonissa on kaksi kilpailusarjaa, eli compoa, kuten demoscene-”alakulttuurissa” sanotaan: Beginner-kilpailusarja, joka on aloittelijoille, sekä Advanced-kilpaílusarja, joka on kokeneemmille demonluojille. Tapahtuman aikana syntyneet demot katsotaan lopuksi valkokankaalta ja demot arvioidaan vertaisarvioinnin avulla antamalla 0-5 pistetttä kullekin demolle. Kuhunkin kilpailusarjaan osallistutaan 1-4 hengen ryhmänä ja “parhaiten” menestyneiden demojen tekijät palkitaan.

Yhteiset valmistujaisjuhlat 7.4.2018 Urban Millillä

Kuvat © Veera Somerpalo

Illan teema oli Black & White, joka näkyi osallistujien pukeutumisessa sekä tarjoiluissa. Urban Mill tarjosi loistavat ja helposti muunneltavissa olevat tilat, joihin saatiin luotua sekä mukavia oleskelunurkkauksia että tanssilattia. Lisäksi yksi rajatuista tiloista toimi paikkana valokuvaukselle.

Molemmat juhlakalut ovat aloittaneet opintonsa biotuotekniikan koulutusohjelmassa; Noora vuonna 2011 ja Katri 2012. Samasta koulutusohjelmasta huolimatta suuntautumiset ovat olleet erilaiset. Nooralle oli selvää alusta lähtien, että hän haluaa opiskella ympäristöasioiden hallinnan pääainetta. Kandivaiheessa Noora työskenteli kesät Suomessa, mutta maisterivaiheessa uramahdollisuuksia avautui niin Japanissa kuin Chilessä. Ennen valmistumista Noora ehti työskentelemään ulkomailla yhteensä puoli vuotta Tokion vilskeessä ja Concepciónin auringon alla. Diplomityön Noora päätyi kuitenkin tekemään Suomessa. Katri taas päätyi ensimmäisten kesätöidensä innoittamina opiskelemaan biojalostamot-pääainetta, joskin opinnot veivät myöhemmin myös perinteisen paperitekniikan pariin. Loppujen lopuksi Katri palasi kuitenkin perinteisen sellutekniikan pariin, ja päätyikin sellutekniikan suunnittelu- ja konsultointitehtävien pariin loppuvuodesta 2017.

Brand new Aalto Artificial Intelligence Society (AAIS) calls for members, partners and sponsors

A number of students interested in artificial intelligence (AI) gathered to Urban Mill last week to discuss how to promote and develop the know-how of AI within Aalto University. The students found it important to set up an association to support the aims.

The founding meeting of Aalto Artificial Intelligence Society, in Finnish Aallon Tekoälyseura, was held in Urban Mill on Feb 6th.

The purpose of the association is to unite Aalto University students and other people interested in artificial intelligence and to promote artificial intelligence especially within the student communities. In addition, the association supports its members’ interest in artificial intelligence and the development of it.

The society plans to organise excursions, study circles, courses, hackathons and competitions, collect and transmit information on artificial intelligence, and collaborate with other associations and implement various projects related to the subject area.

AAIS now calls for more members as well as partners and industrial sponsors who would like to get in contact with AI students and collaborate and support the development of AI in the Aalto ecosystem.

For more information, contact: Perttu Yli-Opas, perttu.yli-opas@aalto.fi, +358 44 9765 669, facebook.com/aaltoaisoc
