  • who we are -
  • 9-5? questions, how much arduino do you want to learn; let’s have a conversations; learn from you
  • project presentation friday
  • the design philosophy we'll 5 or more step design process strongly based on that of design thinking >>background ITP, learned from people who have varied philosophies amalgamated iterate at least 4 times in the course >>critically think about how this process worked
  • 30 minutes
  • show the blog later show examples: tom gerhardt
  • we've organized it in these different disciplines as an overview - but waht are your interpereations - what is an example of a biomiimetic interface?
  • Bullfrog: 1. what do we know about this from seeing? (draw observations) 2. what do we know from our own past experience? 3. are there places in our lives where being a bullfrog would be helpful? 4. are there plaecs in our lives where parts of the bull frog would be cool to reuse

  • something interesteng about each animal - examples in your own work of inspired from biology or science
  • anteater - It can curl up into a ball when threatened, with its overlapping scales acting as armour and its face tucked under its tail. The scales are sharp, providing extra defense. The front claws are so long they are unsuited for walking, so the animal walks with its fore paws curled over to protect them. Pangolins can also emit a noxious-smelling acid f rom glands nea r the anus , similar to the spray of a skunk .
  • so much info on the web: how to get it from the sender to receiver while travelling through the fewest number of nodes? reliability at massive scale: Reliability at massive scale is one of the biggest challenges we face at Amazon.com, one of the largest e-commerce operations in the world; even the slightest outage has significant financial consequences and impacts customer trust.
  • socail network - facebook google : how to get info from one person to the recever most efficiently - ant farms
  • overpopulation - transit netowrks
  • data mining : Data mining (the analysis step of the "Knowledge Discovery in Databases" process, or KDD), [1] an interdisciplinary subfield of com puter science , [2 ][3][4] is the co mpu tat ion al pro cess of discovering patterns in large data sets involving methods at the in tersection of artificial intelligence , machine lear ning , statistics , and d atabase systems . [2] The o verall goal of t he data mining pro cess is to extract informa tion from a data set and transfor m i t into an understandable structure for further use. [2] Aside from the raw analysis step, it involves database and data management aspects, data pre-processi ng , model and inference considerations, interestingness metrics, c omplexity consi derations, post-processin g of discovered str uctures, visualizatio n , an d online u pdating .

  • bions: http://adamwbrown.net/projects-2/bion-home/ “ Bion” is an interactive installation that explores the relationship between humans and artificial life. “Bion” makes reference to an individual element of primordial biological energy identified as orgone by the scientist Wilhelm Reich. The installation is composed of hundreds of mass-produced, 3-dimensional glowing and chirping sculptural forms. Each bion, measuring approximately 4x3x2 ½ inches is an synthetic “life-form” fitted with an audio speaker, blue lights (LED’s), and multiple sensors. The bions are suspended by fine gage wire connected to panels that are attached to the ceiling. When installed the panels form clusters of bions arranged at different elevations. Each bion has the ability to communicate with the others and with viewers that enter the space.

  • http://www.npr.org/2013/05/02/180556950/of-flybots-and-bug-eyes-insects-inspire-inventors An insect's eye lets it see really well because each of its light-sensitive cells has a dedicated lens. This miniature camera, which mimics an insect eye, is made from an array of microlenses arranged on a stretchable sheet that can be inflated like a balloon to a hemispherical shape.

  • this surgical endoscope can enter the vessel without damaging any tissue. Moreover, because of the 102 degrees of freedom, it will surely make a better performance.
  • Eastgate Centre in Zimbabwe Harare, Zimbabwe, The country’s largest office and shopping complex is an architectural marvel in its use of biomimicry principles . The mid-rise building, designed by architect Mick Pearce in conjun ction with engineers at Arup Associates , has no conventi onal air-condit ioning or heating, yet stays regulated year round with dramatically less energy consumption using design methods inspired by indigenous Zimbabwean masonry and the self-cooling mounds of African termites! http://inhabitat.com/building-modelled-on-termites-eastgate-centre-in-zimbabwe/eastgate-centre-biomimetic-architecture-biomimicry-biomimetic-design-biomimicry-of-termite-mounds-green-building-with-termites-eco-building-sustainable-design-harare-zimbabwe-africa-sustain-4/
  • The Eastgate building is modeled on the self-cooling mounds of Macrotermes michaelseni, termites that maintain the temperature inside their nest to within one degree of 31 °C, day and night, - while the external temperature varies between 3 °C and 42 °C. Eastgate uses only 10 percent of the energy of a conventional building its size, saved 3.5 million in air conditioning costs in the first five years, and has rents that are 20% lower than a newer building next door.

A consequent problem facing today's software developers is in locating the referential chain that leads from one person to another - or what the developers describe as the path from node to node. As these networks increase in size, so too does latency. And as any user of social networks can attest, delays are a complete turn-off.
