Several wooden buildings were created on the Jizera river beach in Mnichovo Hradiště during the summer holidays . They were designed and produced by students of the Faculty of Architecture at CTU as part of a summer workshop of Josef Mádr and Šárka Malošíková studio MáMa. Collaboration between the studio and the townhall lasted for the past academic year, during which students explored hidden potential of the place through their designs and checked the objectives of new development plans. Town of Mnichovo Hradiště took the beach modification as one of its priorities and provided students and educators with material and technical support.
Scientists from the pattern recognition group and machine learning at Faculty of Electrical Engineering will participate on leading research in artificial intelligence within the FAIR partnership (Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research).
