Psychology of Early Design in Architecture
Lately there has been a good deal of emphasis on the early stages of the design process, particularly by developers of computer aids and quantitative design models for both evaluation and generation of designs in a variety of domains. Yet, there is little understanding of the early design-process. While the early design process as manifested by human designers need not be the sole basis of the description of this phase, it certainly represents and important kernel of knowledge, especially for th

Understanding the Rise of China
Speaking at a TED Salon in London, economist Martin Jacques asks: How do we in the West make sense of China and its phenomenal rise? The author of "When China Rules the World," he examines why the West often puzzles over the growing power of the Chinese economy, and offers three building blocks for understanding what China is and will become.

By the time I applied for CERN, I had MIT and NASA on my resume
Watching “Apollo 13” as a child, physics student Hayley Osman told her dad she would be an astronaut. Believing in her potential, he continually reminded her that she could do it as long as she focused on math and science. Now, even though she no longer hopes to live the life of an astronaut, she sees that his advice paid off. In the fall of her freshman year at Missouri State, she started researching in Dr. Saibal Mitra’s lab, and he connected her with internships at Boston’s Massachus

2.2.4 Reading graphs and charts: extracting information

When you are sure that you know what a chart or graph is all about, start to look for any main trends. Jot down for yourself a few conclusions that you think can be drawn. It often takes a little time before you can interpret the chart or graph properly. It is worth the effort, however, because information held in the form of a graph is highly patterned; and as our memories work by finding patterns in information and storing them, the information in graphs is easier to remember than informati

It is common for a web search to return hundreds, or even millions, of hits; certainly too many to check. But uncannily, the first few hits often contain just what you were looking for. How do search engines manage this seemingly miraculous feat?

The answer lies in techniques used to rank pages so that the 'best' are first. Each search engine uses different tec

2.3 Selling on eBay

To sell goods on eBay you have to go through a more elaborate registration process than that needed merely to bid. You have to provide more information on your personal details, and provide the number of a valid credit or debit card and the details of a bank account. This is because eBay makes its money from fees paid by vendors, and it needs a reliable mechanism for collecting these fees. eBay levies three types of fee – a listing fee (for allowing you to offer an item for sale on the site

2.1 What is a complex number?

We will now discuss complex numbers and their properties. We will show how they can be represented as points in the plane and state the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra: that any polynomial equation with complex coefficients has a solution which is a complex number. We will also define the function exp of a complex variable.

4.9 The revival of gender essentialism

After falling out of fashion in the wake of feminist influence in the 1970s and 1980s, there are signs that the notion of ‘essential’ gender differences is undergoing a revival. At an academic level, this has been stimulated by work within genetics, evolutionary psychology and neurology (see Baron-Cohen, 2003). At a more popular level, self-help manuals which apparently ‘explain’ the differences between men's and women's behaviours, and offer advice on coping with them, have become hu

6 A look to the future

So what will computers do for you next? Perhaps they will be the key to solving transport problems. Driverless cars, controlled by computers, are under development. If these ever come to fruition perhaps they could help to reduce the number of road traffic accidents by automatically reducing their speed when they come too close to another car. Or perhaps journeys could be made faster and less frustrating because cars will use communicating computers to analyse traffic density and move along t
