Students learn one of the most required programming language in Israeli industry.
During the BioArt project funded by Erasmus+ programme a new course on numerical methods in Python accounting for 4.5 ETCS was developed for the students of the department of Electrical Engineering of SCE, which will enabled students graduating from Shamoon College of Engineering to meet industries needs.
Within short time Dr. Tom Trigano developed a course together with the European project partners that allow students to learn and apply Python, one of the most popular progamming tools, on practical numerical problems. Students of the 4th year already enjoy learning this flexible C-like language for rapid prototyping. They will further apply it in artificial intelligence and biomedical applications during the pilot teaching this semester.
New bionic labs at Holon Institute of Technology
The BioArt team visited the Artificial Intelligence Lab created within the project BioArt and the Hybrid BCI Lab extended by equipment bought by this Erasmus+ project.
The Artificial Intelligence lab is equipped with state-of-the-art workstations for computational intensive calculations of AI methods in the field of bioengineering and bioartificial implants. It will start its operation with the pilot teaching of BioArt at HIT.
The BCI lab has now the opportunity to use augmented reality both in teaching during the lectures and for students doing their final thesis projects.
The project partners have been impressed by the setup and the opportunities these two labs funded by Erasmus+ will offer in teaching activities.
The Department for Integrated Sensor Systems was invited to present actual research projects to the general public at the Research Festival of the county of Lower Austria on 27.9.2019.
Multiple Sensors from the areas of intelligent traffic systems, magnetic sensing and BioArt have been presented during the event, which was held at the historic Palais Niederצsterreich at the heart of Vienna from 3 pm to 10 pm. In this context also the activities and trends investigated and developed in the project BioArt have been presented. Many interesting questions of the visitors have been answered during the whole evening. The organisator of the event reported that more than 6000 visitors have been counted.
