Rebuilding Banking [Audio]
Speaker(s): Stephen Hester | Stephen Hester took over as Royal Bank of Scotland CEO after the UK Government was forced to rescue the bank from the brink of collapse during the financial crisis. Three and a half years after launching its recovery plan, the bank is in much stronger health. But like the rest of the banking industry, RBS continues to confront serious reputational damage as past mistakes slowly come into full view of regulators, media, and the wider public. Hester will explain how a
Edge Show 117: Azure RMS | Edge In this show we take a first look at new features and functionality in the Azure RMS sharing application that enable you to share anything with anyone, safely and securely on any storage platform. Guiding us through is @TheRMSGuy Dan Plastina, Group Manager for RMS (and before you ask that means he manages development of the products). Dan and Simon May also talk through how the RMS team get feedback and some of the surprises we've had and some of t

The Nagual Experiment
This paper refers to an experiment about the use of artificial life structures in order to simulate/evocate natural or artificial patterns. These patterns are the effect of the self-organisation of a population of individuals during their process of development and growth. Although the local dynamics and interactions have a chaotic (partially random) behaviour, the global dynamics of the population produces interesting and well structured patterns. The graphic images generated with these procedu

Virtual Reality in Architectural Education: Defining Possibilities
Introduction: virtual reality in architecture Virtual Reality (VR) is an emergent computer technology for full 3D-simulations, which has a natural application in the architectural work, due that activity involves the complete definition of buildings prior to its construction. Although the profession has a long tradition and expertise in the use of 2D-plans for the design of buildings, the increasing complexity of projects and social participation requires better media of representation. However,

Learn English 27 - Clothes
A short movie clip that takes place in a clothing store that shows how how to use may, might, and maybe in sentences. Examples are reviewed when may, might, and maybe were used in the movie in a sentence.
Multimodal representations of architectural design knowledge: Interaction between visual and ontolog
This paper presents multimodal representation of architectural design knowledge, where explicit and implicit information are linked. The aim is to develop computational environment that combines several modes of representation. Integration of interactive digital-models library and ontological model of architectural design factors is investigated.
Historical Analysis of Building - (Re)Construction in Olivette Park, USA
From 1959 to 1990, East St. Louis, Illinois deteriorated from an ?All-American City? to a national symbol of urban blight. Located on the Mississippi River, the East St. Louis of today faces severe economic, social, and environmental problems. Nearly onequarter of the city?s work force is unemployed and about 40 percent of families are living below the poverty level. But East St. Louis was not always a distressed community. With strong ties to St. Louis and the surrounding region, East St. Louis

Technical Aspects of the Urban Simulator in Tampere University of Technology
The colour video recording Urban Simulator in TUT was built very early compared with the development of video systems. A contract for planning the simulator electronics, mechanics and camera systems was made in january 1978 with two TUT students: Jani Granholm (computer science and engineering) and Ilkka Alavalkama (machine design and automation). Ease of control and maintenance were asked by side of ?human movement inside coloured small-scale architectural models?. From the beginning, all compo
A Tool for Typological Analysis
Any design problem is faced drawing from the architect's knowledge both case knowledge and general knowledge. One type of the latter is abstracted from a multiplicity of cases of which the common features are recognised in such a way as to single out a prototype representing in the best way a class of architectural objects. If applied to a set of residential buildings and to the flats in them the analysis is typological and it is one of the fundamental ways of acquiring general knowledge to be u
Mixing Domains: Architecture plus Software Engineering
Software engineering is a multidisciplinary area of knowledge combining competence in computation with at least one other area of expertise, typically in the domain of the applications being created. A course offering for students of engineering, architecture and software engineering at Carnegie Mellon illustrates the challenges and opportunities of cross-domain instruction. These include ontology, problem taxonomies, and instruction strategies.
NFAIS 2008 talk on Open Notebook Science
Jean-Claude Bradley presents on "Open Notebook Science: Putting the Information User in Control through Transparency" at the NFAIS meeting in Philadelphia on February 24, 2008. This was part of the session on "The Emerging Culture of the New Information Order". The use of public blogs, wikis, GoogleDocs and mailing lists to conduct research on the synthesis of new anti-malarial agents is described.
