STAR methodology-based learning about construction accidents and their prevention
This paper presents the results of a feasibility study concerning the application of STAR-methodology-basedmachine learning to construction accidents and their prevention. A ten-stage knowledge acquisition process is presented and its individual stages described. Knowledge about construction accidents was acquired using a collection of 225 examples, based on actual accidents records. Inductive learning with a system based on the STAR-methodology was employed. This system was used in both the gen

From texture to volume: an investigation in quasi-crystalline systems
The relation between texture, pattern and massing is a fundamental question in architecture. Classical architecture, as Leon Battista Alberti states in ?De re aedificatoria? (Book VI, Chapter 2), is developed through massing and structure first; texture is added afterwards to give the bold massing and structure beauty. Only the ornamentation adds pulcritudo to the raw structure and massing. Rather than starting with a volume and applying texture afterwards, the Digital Girih project started with

Integrative parametric form-finding processes
The recent developments in digital technologies and contemporary design tools are initiating new approaches of form-finding based on parametric development of multiple geometries with simultaneous consideration of various aspects. This paper focuses on the use of advanced parametric CAD systems and reformulated construction logics to enhance the potential and possibilities of form finding processes. This approach is exemplified through the ?Greenhouse Trauttmansdorff project?. The project demons

Tougher Crops for a Warmer World
Trying to grow plants in Australian conditions is challenging - it always seems to be too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry, too salty, too infertile. And it is likely to get harder as the effects of climate change become increasingly apparent. The economic and social effects of our harsh environment are significant, reducing yield for farmers and making the sustainable use of land difficult.

The ethical requirements that apply to groups, and what they mean for us as individuals
Whoever we are, many of the ethical decisions we face apply to the actions we take as part of a group.For example, we must consider the nature of our responsibilities to the environment, the underprivileged and groups previously wronged. There are even ethical components to the choice of products we buy. So what determines whether our actions are right or wrong? Which groups, ethically speaking, do we actually belong to? And if a group is neglecting its responsibilities, how should we respond as

Lecture 9: Motion Capture
Dr Julian Morris on "Motion Capture". Over the past 25 years "motion capture" has grown from very small beginnings into a global market worth many £10 millions per annum, spanning applications in orthopaedics, sport, film, TV and computer games, and industry. The populist model of start-ups suggests an original stroke of technical and entrepreneurial insight, but this is misleading. The reality is a rather more interesting story of successive engineering responses to customer demand and competi

Jim and Marianne are both long-term heroin addicts. Additional problems associated with their addiction are homelessness and physical illness. Their situation raises both practical questions, about how services can be accessed, and moral questions, about entitle
