Three MSc theses successfully defended this week: congrats to Jeffrey Luppes (text classification), Dennis Verheijden (photo selection) and Tanja Crijns (conversational search).

Testing... \( \LaTeX still works? \)

Leuk presentje van Best Kept Secret.

BKS voor mij met Le Guess Who toch elk jaar weer de beste muziek geprogrammeerd - al doet Valkhof heel goed mee in 2019, ook geweldige line-up :-)
