Why Some People See Sound | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Some people may actually see sounds, say researchers who found this odd ability is possible when the parts of the brain devoted to vision are small.

Material Equilibria Installation « Institute for Computational Design (ICD)

Material Equilibria Installation « Institute for Computational Design (ICD) | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

This installation, entitled MATERIAL EQUILIBRIA, exhibits research by Sean Ahlquist on the delicate and simultaneous relationship of articulated material behavior and differentiated structural form. This specific study investigates the variegation of knitted textiles, a jacquard weave of shifting densities, as it influences the structuring of a tensile spatial surface. Through means of computer-controlled manufacturing, the micro-structure of the knitted textile is varied in order to induce and direct differentiated tensile behaviors across the meso-scale surface. A spring-based modeling environment, programmed in Processing and developed through the on-going research of Sean Ahlquist, is utilized to manipulate the behaviors and equilibria between tensile surface and bending-active boundary. The relative values of the computational data-set is translated to specific parameters defining ranges and regions of knit density, as well as stiffness of bounding glass-fiber rods. The resulting material form actively exhibits integrated force-driven behaviors in the expression, the distension, of the interwoven fibers.

Education is about to change dramatically, says Anant Agarwal, who heads edX, a $60 million MIT-Harvard effort to stream a college education over the Web, free, with plans to teach a billion students, Technology Review reports.

“Massive open online courses,” or MOOCs, offered by new education ventures like edX, Coursera, and Udacity, to name the most prominent (see “The Crisis in Higher Education”) will affect markets so large that their value is difficult to quantify.

Steven Pinker: Linguistics as a Window to Understanding the Brain

"How did humans acquire language? In this lecture, best-selling author Steven Pinker introduces you to linguistics, the evolution of spoken language, and the debate over the existence of an innate universal grammar. He also explores why language is such a fundamental part of social relationships, human biology, and human evolution. Finally, Pinker touches on the wide variety of applications for linguistics, from improving how we teach reading and writing to how we interpret law, politics, and literature."

List Price: $50.00
Price: $40.71
You Save: $9.29 (19%)

The digital turn in architecture has gone through several stages and phases, and Architectural Design (AD) has captured them all. This anthology of AD's most salient articles is chronologically and thematically arranged to provide a complete historical timeline of the rise to pre-eminence of computer-based design and production. A much-needed pedagogical and research tool, this synopsis also relates the present state of digitality in architecture to the history and theory of its recent development and trends. Architectural students, scholars, and practicing architects will find this book an invaluable reference.
