On Thursday 29th of March, Matti Aksela, a researcher from our laboratory, defended his thesis on "Adaptive combinations of classifiers with application to on-line handwritten character recognition”. Opponent was Prof. Robert P.W. Duin (Delft University of Technology). A day earlier, prof. Duin had given an interesting presentation on "Non-Euclidean Problems in Human Centered Information Processing".
The continuation of the thesis party took place in restaurant Mecca in which one of the most talented contemporary Finnish violinists, Pekka Kuusisto, had a concert in which he played Cafe del Mar style music chosen by Dj Yuhis. As the last piece, Kuusisto played Bach's g minor Adagio from six Sonatas and Partitas for Violin. A great day altogether!
