This was the third week of the career month and this week we had a lunch lecture by Xomnia about Neural Networks for a Self-Driving Boat. It was an interesting talk and the free lunch is always well received. On Thursday we had Meet the Researchers, where researchers told about their career in academia and what they are working on now. It was very cool to hear how everybody got to where they are at now and it was very interesting to hear about the cutting edge research they are doing. In the evening we had the Alphabet Party, which was a lot of fun. I hope everybody had a blast as well and isn't too hungover.
