On one side of the tree is the concrete cube with the stairwell, perforated by circular windows in a seemingly random way, framing different tree trunk angles.Save this picture!© Angélica IbarraThe kitchen is on the other side, on the first level which is completely open in order to take advantage of the courtyard using the tree trunk as the place to eat outdoors. On the second level, the master bedroom frames the tree trunk vertically with a square opening that abstracts its texture.Save this picture!© Angélica IbarraTaking advantage of the grandiose tree cortex inside the master bathroom, the tub extends slightly on the courtyard creating a direct window to the foliage and the sky.Save this picture!© Angélica IbarraThis is how the house seems to be organized in slices, that are separate from each other to allow the existence of the trees, besides taking advantage of these pauses for natural light and ventilation.Save this picture!© Angélica IbarraThe same constructive system emphasizes those pauses, generating a series of concrete frames, which in each pause, in each interior façade produced to the different courtyards, are filled with partition walls and openings.Save this picture!Upper Floor PlanThe house has a character where the final result is set by the textures, the smells, the sounds and temperatures.

DFAB HOUSE marks the first time that a full scale, the inhabited multi-story building has been designed and built using advanced digital fabrication methods. The project is the result of a nationwide interdisciplinary research initiative in Switzerland, called NCCR Digital Fabrication, aimed at transforming the design and building process by integrating computational design and digital fabrication into architecture. Its design concept is based on leveraging the full architectural potential of selected novel digital building processes in the field of robotic fabrication and 3 D printing technologies through integrated processes.Save this picture!© Roman KellerTo realize DFAB HOUSE, researchers at seven ETH Zurich professorships came together with industry experts and planning professionals in a unique way to demonstrate and test how digital fabrication can change the way we design and build. The design of the DFAB HOUSE leverages six research innovations:  the In situ Fabricator, a versatile autonomous on-site construction robot; Mesh Mould, a formwork-free, robotic process for steel-reinforced concrete structures; Smart Dynamic Casting, an automated concrete slip-forming process; Smart Slab, integrated ceiling slabs fabricated with 3D-printed formwork; Spatial Timber Assemblies, a robotically fabricated timber structure; and Lightweight Translucent Facade, a membrane skin filled with translucent thermal insulation. Save this picture!© NCCR Digital FabricationSave this picture!Exploded axoSave this picture!© Digital Building Technologies (dbt), ETH Zürich / Andrei JipaThe ground floor of DFAB HOUSE is designed to be a shared space. Characterised by floor to ceiling windows supported by 15 bespoke, curved concrete mullions, the centrepiece of the room is the Mesh Mould wall, an S-shaped structure providing natural shared and hidden spaces to the house’s inhabitants. The non-standard, curvilinear wall provides load-bearing support for the undulating Smart Slab, a geometrically complex structure, forming the ceiling. Save this picture!© Roman KellerTravelling up to the second and third floors of DFAB HOUSE, visitors are transported from the clean yet organic lines of the ground floor to the feel of a contemporary Alpine chalet on the residential second and third floors. Split into four standalone apartments, robot-built Spatial Timber Assemblies provide a warm, homely feel and catch the eye with their non-uniform placement, while the lightweight translucent facade made with Aerogel ensures that natural daylight penetrates the outward-facing walls, while also providing inhabitants with privacy and thermal comfort.Save this picture!© Roman KellerSave this picture!© Daniel Sanz PontUsing digital techniques to constantly update during the design process, each architectural element is made bespoke, allowing each part to be engineered exactly for its individual function. By creating innovative objects that are perfectly engineered for the space that they will occupy, DFAB HOUSE also represents an important step forward in sustainability in architecture. Through tailoring each element to its conditions, the material savings were significant.Save this picture!© Roman KellerSave this picture!© Digital Building Technologies (dbt), ETH Zürich / Tom MundyIn fact, the Smart Slab alone offers 65% weight reduction as compared to traditional slabs, and Mesh Mould is a formwork-free, zero-waste application that also uses an optimised, intelligent shape to minimise material use. The architecture of DFAB HOUSE leverages digital fabrication to make tailored designs economical while exposing all structural elements of the building in their true materiality, producing varied and tactile spaces rather than dull repetition. DFAB HOUSE opens the door to a new, digital building culture where new design opportunities merge seamlessly with resource efficiency.

CFTC Overreach Impacts End-Users and Leads to Higher Costs for Consumers

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News CFTC Overreach Impacts End-Users and Leads to Higher Costs for Consumers By Gary Truitt – Jul 24, 2013 SHARE CFTC Overreach Impacts End-Users and Leads to Higher Costs for Consumers “Today’s hearing was especially important as it reminds us why our financial markets exist in the first place, which is to serve companies both large and small, as well as individuals like farmers and their co-ops, in managing their business risks.  The insight of the end-users represented today will prove essential moving forward as we seek to ensure the implementation of Dodd-Frank proceeds properly at the CFTC, so as not to throw up regulatory roadblocks to the legitimate hedging activities of American companies,” said Ranking Member David Scott (D-GA).This is the third in a series of hearings on the future of the CFTC. The first one was a full committee hearing on May 21 to gain perspectives from the market. Yesterday, the subcommittee heard from the CFTC directly. Previous articleNational Pork Board Sees Increase in Summer Pork SalesNext articleEnvironmental Working Group: Cooking the Books for Big Oil Gary Truittcenter_img SHARE Wednesday, Rep. K. Michael Conaway, Chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on General Farm Commodities and Risk Management, held a hearing to examine the impact of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) actions on end-users. These are businesses that provide our daily goods and services, and rely upon derivatives contracts to manage the risks associated with their operations. Since the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, end-users have shared consistent concerns that the CFTC is overreaching in its rulemaking and cautioned it would ultimately lead to higher costs for consumers.  “Well-functioning markets are essential to help grow the economy, and one needs to look no further than our witnesses here today to understand how important it is for the CFTC to get its regulations right. The past two years have been a regulatory roller coaster for end-users. I am concerned about the impact that delays and last minute no-action letters are having on how market participants manage their businesses. The lack of certainty has no doubt cost many companies valuable capital and changed their strategic thinking. Regulations should be created and exist to protect markets, not destroy them,“ said Chairman K. Michael Conaway (R-TX). Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

A division bench of Justice B.V. Nagarathna and Justice N.S. Sanjay Gowda passed the order on a PIL petition filed by Cubbon Park Walkers’ Association Bangalore. The respondents have been directed to file their statement of objections to the petition and the matter is posted for further hearing on October 22. The petition states that the Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT) had on September 2, 2020, written to the Secretary, Department of Horticulture recommending closure of the park for both vehicular traffic and parking of vehicles. The authority had examined the issue of allowing traffic through Cubbon Park following representations received from various groups for banning traffic. The plea states that the public interest will suffer if the state government were to be allowed to throw open the cubbon park area for vehicular movement. The public at large will be put to irreparable loss and injury if such a decision is allowed to be taken by the state government contrary to the recommendation of the authority. Further it is said the decision if any to allow vehicular movement through Cubbon Park, would violate the right to clean air to which every citizen is entitled to as such a right is part of the right to protection of life guaranteed by Article 21 of the Constitution of India.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Exploring the Data Science Evolution

first_imgArtificial Intelligence (AI), once the specter of Computer Science labs, is finding true physical form today. Thanks to the likes of Siri, Alexa, and “Hey Google,” Natural Language Processing has become a valuable assistant in our daily lives. AI also opens the door to new patient insights, inventory reductions, and fraud mitigation. The advent of quick, cheap, dense compute along with ubiquitous, large-scale storage create the perfect conditions. The invention of a new scientific discipline known as modern data science brings purpose and clarity to these technological advances. Modern data science has transformed to fit the native runtime architectures like a lock and proverbial key. While the fundamentals of scientifically analyzing data have not changed, it has transformed into a discipline that models and implements modern solutions for AI problems that were tremendously complex prior to the mid 1980s. As a result, anyone who wishes to be an effective AI practitioner today can achieve solid capabilities through data science.Data Science Evolves into the FuturePast: Data? Science? What?Once upon a time, there was scattered data on office shelves and corporate databases. Science was found in physics, chemistry, mathematics, and biology academic departments. The research team was focused on their isolated line of scientific interest. A “scientist” visualized a novel progressive idea, gathered existing information from previous experiments, and proposed a model for its implementation. Upon a committee’s approval, throughout this slow one-person show, she organized the data, cleansed it, perhaps modeled it in a mathematically defined system and started producing results. There was seldom a computer involved in processing that data. The invisible relationship between the “data” and the “science” that leveraged its value was implicit in the scientist’s mind. And the show went on: progress was made with nearly no automation.Present: A Star is RebornIn order to deliver Artificial Intelligence solutions today, a data scientist must have in-depth knowledge in multiple data skill sets such as Computer Science, Calculus & Statistics, Coding (Python or R), Data Wrangling, Machine Learning, Data Visualization, Communication Skills, and Business Domains. By creating an inference schema utilizing these skills, we can visualize a brand new scientific super-space. This modern analytics paradigm contains all the enablement aspects of the basic data skill sets and produces a single discipline known to us today as “Data Science.”  However, mastering these skills in order to become a data scientist is challenging. Automation of scientific tasks not only simplifies the overall implementation pipeline, but also contributes to improving the solution’s accuracy. Existing Data Science automation tools such as DataRobot, Noodle.ai and advancements in open source ML tools present tedious hurdles that must be overcome. A data scientist who achieves this can turn these knobs and eventually land on a concrete performing model. To have direct access to an algorithm’s granular knobs, data scientists prefer to code implementation details and leverage optimized available frameworks to build, validate and test a model. This is the emerging modern trend.Future: Imagining a Biologically Inspired IntelligenceFor decades, some in the scientific community have dreamed of eliminating the need to place “Artificial” next to “Intelligence.” The intent has been to replace the stochastical optimization processes of statistical ML models mentioned above with biological mechanisms that the living organisms develop genetically. This is called Evolutionary Learning, and an artifact of this is referred to as Evolutionary Intelligence. The two approaches differ in terms of programmability versus adaptability. Modern data science, described above, is a “programmable” approach. An adaptable organism references its genetic pool as a database, mutates a genes row replica and materializes a customized genetic row used in development of new cells while growing physical organelles. This is evolution’s natural selection and mutation process.We have not even come close to replicating this in a lab. Critically, we lack the technology to manufacture synthetic material that mimics human brain tissues’ molecular structure operating at exaFlops equivalent (10^18 operations per-second). The moment we achieve this, human-like brains will be exposed to environmental changes (in-progress training data) in an ecosystem and start learning on their own.  We can then claim that adaptable human-brain-like “object recognizer” machines have been built which function completely opposite to the existing Silicon based “number crunchers” known as modern computers. They will self-assemble to learn from our living environments and naturally adapt to the changes in a developing evolutionary training process.ConclusionChoosing the right AI solutions can be daunting, so we’ve created an ecosystem of resources to help customers on their journey.

Speakers connect past athletic experiences, values

first_imgChristopher Adkins and Amber Lattner spoke about how their experiences in sports taught them the keys to a high level of ethical performance during “Life Lessons from Sports: Performance and Purpose” at the Mendoza College of Business on Tuesday afternoon.Adkins, the executive director of the Notre Dame Deloitte Center for Ethical Leadership, said questions of ethics arise frequently in athletics, and it is in these moments when people define themselves.“There are moments where you have to decide if you’re going to play dirty too,” Adkins said. “Are you going to go down to that level, or are you going to up your game? There are moments when you have to dig deep.”Adkins said a high school soccer coach taught him how to look within himself for a performance advantage. The coach emphasized the importance of visualizing a successful game beforehand, Adkins said.“I now realize this was a bit of cognitive behavioral therapy, to script ourselves,” Adkins said.Adkins said this same visualization process is necessary for maintaining a high ethical standard.“We need to figure out those moments when we were at our peak ethical performance, and then establish a trigger, much like when I need to go in the zone on the sports field to make a free throw,” Adkins said. “I need to go to all the moments when I’ve made it, not all the moments when I’ve missed. We need to do that ethically.”Lattner, founder of the Lattner Performance Group, said she first learned about the keys to peak performance as a 9-year-old, when along with playing soccer and going to school, she worked at her family’s McDonald’s franchise and helped care for her family’s cattle.“What I found was that the best of the best, regardless of what domain we’re in, whether it’s academics, athletics, livestock or business, they’ve all got similar traits,” Lattner said. “They have similar work ethics and disciplines and habits of excellence that contribute to them being the best in their respective crafts.”Later on, while playing soccer at Notre Dame, Lattner said her coach stressed the importance of maintaining excellent habits.“He said if you want to be a national champion, you have to act like a national champion, every single day, in everything you do,” Lattner said.Lattner said she soon became very interested in psychoneuromuscular theory, which relates to how our thoughts and emotions affect performance.“Our thoughts affect our emotions, our emotions affect our body’s response and ultimately that’s what’s going to dictate our behavior,” Lattner said. “What we think about is going to impact how we’re going to react and respond to things.”Lattner said the more we think about something, the more protein patterns are grown in the brain corresponding to this topic of thought. This “changes the form and function of your brain,” and consequently, Lattner said, controlling your thoughts is of the utmost importance.“If it is a good thought, keep it, use it, hold on to it, repeat it,” Lattner said. “If it’s not a good thought, guess what we should do? Chuck it.”Tags: Ethics week, Life lessons, sportslast_img read more
