Currently, you are on the website of Cover! We are the study association for Artificial Intelligence and Computing Science. If you are interested in these topics and also want to have a genuinely good time, drop by the Cover room in the Bernoulliborg on Zernike campus (0041a), because that's where we live. We are open on weekdays from 11:00 to 17:00.

Cover can offer you three types of activities:
- First, the social aspect is an important part of us. We organise weekly borrels, monthly socials and tons of other activities.
- Second, we organise study support lectures about our degree programs. You can join workshops that either dig deeper into materials, or offer some fresh knowledge. You can also find help using our tutoring system!
- Third, we also offer career oriented events. Regularly, we have companies over to hold talks about certain career paths. You will find this interesting if you want to talk to students who finished their studies and now work at companies or if you are interested in what companies are up to in general.

For a more detailed overview of our upcoming events, have a look to your left!

We are proud to announce the second speaker for the symposium: Daniel Domscheit-Berg!

Daniel is a German activist and IT security expert. He helped build the WikiLeaks platform from 2007 to 2010, and acted as its spokesperson under the pseudonym Daniel Schmitt. He quit WikiLeaks over disputes about its strategic orientation, lack of transparency and management style. Domscheit-Berg wrote a book about his experiences "Inside WikiLeaks“.

Before WikiLeaks, Domscheit-Berg worked for various Fortune 500 companies, mainly building enterprise-scale wireless and wired networks for the automotive and transport industries.

      With great disbelief, we have to inform you of the passing of Roel van der Wal on Sunday January 12th. We wish his family and friends a lot of strength. The faculty has situated a memorial room in room 0069 of the Bernoulliborg building where a message for his relatives can be left. The family would really appreciate hearing any stories or memories of Roel you would like to share.

      On Monday January 20th, a family gathering will be held to honour Roel where friends are welcome to join. Thursday afternoon, we’ll take a moment to honour Roel during the TAD in the Cover room.

      Roel also was a member of Gyas, VIP and Dizkartes. Together with these associations an obituary wil be placed in the Dagblad van het Noorden.

      The board is available for questions at all times.
