Behavior-based Computational Design Methodologies: Integrative processes for force defined material
With the introduction of physics-based algorithms and modeling environments, design processes have been shifting from the representation of materiality to the simulation of approximate material descriptions. Such computational processes are based upon enacting physical and material behavior, such as gravity, drag, tension, bending, and inflation, within a generative modeling environment. What is often lacking from this strategy is an overall understanding of computational design; that informati
Why do we need social science? - Roadshow
The Campaign for Social Science SW Regional Roadshow aims to raise the profile of social science in the public, media and Parliament, in context of changes to the funding of teaching and research.
2.72 Elements of Mechanical Design (MIT)
This is an advanced course on modeling, design, integration and best practices for use of machine elements such as bearings, springs, gears, cams and mechanisms. Modeling and analysis of these elements is based upon extensive application of physics, mathematics and core mechanical engineering principles (solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, manufacturing, estimation, computer simulation, etc.). These principles are reinforced via (1) hands-on laboratory experiences wherein students conduct experime

7.346 Virus-host Interactions in Infectious Diseases (MIT)
Co-evolution and adaptation between viruses and humans are often portrayed as a zero-sum biological arms race. Viruses enter host cells equipped with an array of mechanisms to evade the host defense responses and replicate. The rapid rate of mutation of viruses permits evolution of various methodologies for infection, which in turn drive development of non-specific but highly effective host mechanisms to restrict infection. This class will discuss the varied solutions each side has developed as
The interpresence project ? design in progress
The Interpresence Project exercises the language of communication design and mediatecture to propose planetary coalescence through complex and innovative informational flows through cyberspace allowing for human teleactive encounters.
9.012 The Brain and Cognitive Sciences II (MIT)
This class is the second half of an intensive survey of cognitive science for first-year graduate students. Topics include visual perception, language, memory, cognitive architecture, learning, reasoning, decision-making, and cognitive development. Topics covered are from behavioral, computational, and neural perspectives.

The research presents the importance of the experimentations within education of architecture project. Since the studies for traditional and emergent ways with use them digital tools, it values the project inquiries in the simulations of the models in 3D. For many times, the digital model for being tangible cannot present a difficulty in the understanding of constructive details. As in the digital tools, more specifically BIM (Building Information Modeling) possess integrated standards complex.

The Craft of Science Fiction
Joe Haldeman provides a sneak preview of an upcoming novel whose story plays out in MIT’s past, present and distant future. In his conversation with Henry Jenkins, Haldeman admits that he has “a lot of fun with the sociology of being in this joint.” He also discusses the history of his genre, and his own literary approa

Flocks without shepherds? Governmentality, sovereignty and the paradoxical politics of IDP protectio
Public Seminar Series, Hilary term 2013. Seminar by Dr Simon Addison (SOAS) recorded on 30 January 2013 at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. By applying theoretical insights drawn from the work of Foucault and Ranciere, this paper explores the paradoxically political nature of international doctrine on the protection of internally displaced persons as an apparatus of global biopolitical governmentality.

The Wright Brothers made the world's first powered flights. This video goes into some detail about their accomplishment using original documents. Interesting asides as well.
This is the final report of a conference on Built Environments for Sustainable Tourism, held in Muscat in the Sultanate of Oman in February 2005, as a joint initiative of the Government of the Sultanate of Oman and the World Tourism Organization. Participants included those involved in the tourist industry, international architects and urban planners, government officials involved in tourism, regional and urban development, as well as heritage and culture specialists from around the world.
