Void() Mathieu De Coster


I am a Computer Science Engineering student at Ghent University. This is my personal blog which contains opinions on games, computer science topics and more general topics as well.

I am currently 23 years old and mostly busy with my Master’s thesis: Generating style dependent piano music with deep learning.

When I am not busy working on my thesis, I am playing the piano, gone for a run, out with friends, or playing video games.


I have worked and am working on some open source projects. These include:

  • RsGenetic, a genetic algorithm library written in Rust
  • Iron Example, an example on how to use the Rust web server library Iron
  • glExamples, a repository of OpenGL code examples in C++

I have also worked on some close sourced projects. One was a web application to facilitate functional analysis, created for a course at the University of Ghent, for my bachelors degree in Informatics. Another university project was SignAid, an application that allows real time sign language translation to text using only a webcam. We obtained an accuracy of over 90% on a data set of 25 words, containing 5000 videos in total. I was responsible for continuous integration and continuous deployment together with the system admin and also worked on computer vision and machine learning.
