1 Knowledge technologies in context

There are many non-technological dimensions to understanding what it might mean to ‘manage knowledge’. However, technology is a thread weaving throughout, and seems now to be a fixture in knowledge management conferences and publications. ‘Knowledge’ can be managed as an objectified asset is a core idea in knowledge management. This unit will encourage you to question what this means in different contexts. ‘Context’ allows us to considere what value is added by viewing management

6.2 Shaping knowledge

It seems inevitable that any understandings we have will have been shaped and influenced by other (past and present) members of the same culture(s) we belong to. Most of these influences ‘just happen’: they arise out of our experiences as part of a culture whose members have had their experiences and shared them over many centuries. However, knowledge can also be deliberately influenced by powerful elements within a society: as we saw in Section 5.3, the church suppressed Galileo's reason

Exploring Complex Forms in Nature Through Mathematical Modeling: a Case on Turritella Terebra
Changing paradigm of nature-architecture relationship has being directly affected from developing science and technologies as well as from the impact of biomimetic inventions in various man made designs. Our perception of forms and structures are also shifting through use of computational techniques. From this aspect, mathematical models can be considered as the first step to analyze the complex forms and structures in nature. In this paper it is aimed to initiate a platform in architecture whic

Notes on the Synthesis of Form
Every design problem begins with an effort to achieve fitness between two entities: the form in question and its context. The form is the solution to the problem; the context defines the problem. We want to put the context and the form into effortless contact or frictionless coexistence, i.e., we want to find a good fit. For a good fit to occur in practice, one vital condition must be satisfied. It must have time to happen. In slow-changing, traditional, unselfconscious cultures, a form is adjus

Introduction

We are used to seeing spectacular astronomical images in the press and on the internet. This course gives an in-depth introduction to two of the most important instruments used to create these images and explore the science behind them – telescopes and spectographs.

This course is drawn from the preparatory work for the practical residential school at the Observatori Astronomic de Mallorca. The course image shows a student at work in one of the telescope domes at the Observatori.

Proportions
Video starts with the definition of proportion, which is an equation of two rations, or a fraction equal to a fraction. On a proportion problem you can cross-multiply to solve proportion problems. They show what a non-proportion problem looks like and how to solve it (review). Then they show a few examples of solving proportions, using LCD on the fractions. Other examples and numbers are shown. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.

2.6 Connecting and splicing fibres

There are two different types of fibre joint that need to be considered: permanent splices (the equivalent of soldered or crimped connections on copper cables) and demountable connectors.

Splices are used along a route to allow a link to be built up from convenient lengths of cable. The lengths are typically 2 km. Fibre is manufactured in lengths longer than this, but, once put in a cable, lengths longer than 2 km are difficult to transport and lay. Splices are also used t

4.1 PROMPT

There is so much information available on the internet on every topic imaginable. But how do you know if it is any good? And if you find a lot more information than you really need, how do you decide what to keep and who to discard?

In this section we are going to introduce a simple checklist to help you to judge the quality of the information you find. Before we do this, spend a few minutes thinking about what is meant by information quality.

In 1801 and 1805, first Holland and then his assistant William Porden (1775–1822) had been commissioned to make sketches for altering the exterior to a Chinese style so as to match the extravagantly Chinese interiors, but these projects remained unfulfilled ( Plate 14 ).

Beyond the math visualization - Geometrica and Stochastica
Mathematically controlled imaging process provides attractive results because of its infinite scaling capabilities with some other elements that contribute to the visualization. Its global/local and precise manipulation of parameters holds potential for realizing an unpredictable horizon of imagery. When it meets the artist's taste, this method could be a strong enough system of creation, and I have been producing images using the surfaces of hyperbolic paraboloid. On the other hand, a method ab

Urban Protophenomenon: Introducing the notion of primordial phenomenon in urbanism
This paper aims to draw the necessary distinctions in order to contribute to identify, among all the objects that populate our world of perception, the urbanist?s own object of study. In systemic jargon, it aims to distinguish that elemental unity that ensures that a phenomenon is an urban one and none other. This, in order to help to distinguish in turn the urbanist?s own field of action. It calls into question the widespread belief that this object of study might be the already built city as c
