Engineering Solutions to the Problems of Cancer
Engineers “bring a new set of tools and a new way of looking at problems posed by biologists,” says
Paula T. Hammond
, and are proving integral to advances in cancer diagnostics and therapies. Hammond cites evidence of bioengineering breakthroughs against the disease: the design of micron-sized posts that can identi

Next steps
In this unit we examine the Royal Pavilion at Brighton, and its relationship to nineteenth century romanticism and exoticism. We begin with a biographical discussion of the Prince of Wales, afterwards Prince Regent and eventually King George IV, to whose specifications the Pavilion was built. With the help of video and still images we take a tour of the Pavilion, examining the exterior then a series of interior rooms as a visitor in the 1820s may have experienced them. Besides this we look at co

1 Why people management matters to the successful delivery of projects

The importance of budget, time and quality to the success of projects means that they are often managed as technical systems rather than behavioural systems. Yet mismanagement of the ‘people’ aspects of projects is as likely to contribute to their failure as neglect of the ‘hard’ dimensions of project management. This is because the successful implementation of any kind of project requires the effective deployment of human as well as material resources. Indeed, without peopl

3.5.1 Expectancy versus effect

One of the biggest problems in evaluating psychological interventions is that even if a treatment appears to ‘work’ it can still be difficult to ascertain whether the results were a consequence of the treatment itself. The improvement might have occurred anyway, with or without the treatment, or the apparent benefits might have resulted from other factors, such as being able to discuss the difficulties with a professional who understands. Any treatment can lead to expectations

MAGE: Multi-Agent Game Environment
We study the use of games as a metaphor for building social interaction
in norm-governed multi-agent systems. As part of our research we propose
MAGE (Multi-Agent Game Environment) as a logic-based framework that
represents complex agent interactions as games. MAGE seeks to (a) reuse
existing computational techniques for defining event-based normative sys-
tem and (b) complement these techniques with a coordination component to
support complex interactions.
