Siege of Leningrad (Part 5/10)
This is the story of one of Second World War's most harrowing episodes. The 890 day siege of the Soviet Union's second city has come to epitomise the misery, suffering and savagery of the war on the Eastern Front. The city was not finally liberated by Soviet troops until 19th January 1944 - by that time 600,000 of its citizens had starved to death and 200,000 more had perished in the bombing.
Automated Architecture: Why CAD, Parametrics and Fabrication are Really old News
Automation is transforming a significant number of industries today. This paper discusses how the Design and Construction industry is also entering into a new era of automation. In the paper I observe that designers are automating by using parametric tools (BIM, scripting, etc.) while contractors are moving into pre-fabrication and modularization. Both conceptualizations are incomplete. The paper presents how we are in the first steps of creating learning algorithms that develop specific intell

Dynamic Generation of Design Plans at the Brief Stage
The traditional approach to design and construction suffers from many limitations. As the technology becomes more available to the average users, the need for an effective and efficient solution has never been greater. This paper introduces an alternative approach to the life cycle of construction projects "application controlled process". Based on this approach, a framework for an Integrated Construction Environment (ICE) has been developed and implemented in a prototype demonstrator "SPACE" (S

T. Rex Blood?
In this video segment adapted from NOVA scienceNOW, learn how scientists are hoping to better understand the biology of dinosaurs by studying the insides of fossil bones. Hear about the accidental discovery of dinosaur soft tissue by paleontologist Dr. Mary Schweitzer, and how this tissue enables scientists to learn more about dinosaur physiology and pathology. For example, soft tissue could provide information about toxins that led to dinosaur deaths. Closed Captioning is included. Run time 04:
What killed off the dinosaurs? Over the years, experts have suggested everything from global climate change to a spate of massive volcanic eruptions to the most widely accepted culprit: an asteroid that unleashed global devastation. But as correspondent Chad Cohen reports in this video, some scientists believe the giant reptiles might have been taken down by something almost too tiny to see. (15:05)
