"...Sam Paterson is studying Mechanical Engineering and is currently in his penultimate year. Sam joined the team just prior to the 2009 World Solar Challenge and was a key race team member during that campaign. In 2010, Sam was a driving force behind organising for the team to break the Guinness World Record for Fastest Solar Powered Vehicle. He is passionate about improving vehicle efficiency stemming from his background in high performance skiff racing. Also resulting from his involvement in sailing is Sam’s experience with carbon fiber composites, this was further enhanced by leading the manufacturing effort of the 2011 top shell with a team of fifteen."
Sam is looking for opportunities to team up with Google Glass for documenting and connecting this project to the wider international audience.
“I’m not going to speculate [about Glass] because time will tell with regards what is the right execution with regards to this idea of “heads-up”, so I think we’ve a lot of work to do, frankly, so I’m not going to speculate about that” Pannenbecker said. “But I think, as I said, this is for me an area that we want to engage in, I mean, this topic of heads-up not this particular solution for example. As I said, there’s a whole bandwidth of opportunities, and I think we as a company need to look very deeply into these opportunities, and then commit.”
"....the development of radically new ICT: new supercomputing technologies to federate and manage the data, to integrate it in computer models and simulations of the brain, to identify patterns and organisational principles that only appear when the data is put together, and to identify gaps to be filled by new experiments."
"...Many of my systems, like Google Glass, modify the view of just one eye. I find this works well. But I arrange the optics so that the camera takes in exactly the same perspective as that eye does. I also position the display so that the wearer sees it directly ahead and doesn’t have to look up (as is necessary with Google Glass), down, or sideways to view it."
.....of the present.
Now.....what will the classroom of the future look like?
AS Australia's first female Prime Minister Julia Gillard's fashion choices are poured over, news that her hipster specs have been given the flick for Google glasses will have the nation in a flap.
Ms Gillard yesterday got a chance to try the high-tech glasses which are tipped to cost at least $750USD and will allow users to wear a device that operates a lot like a smartphone. Google glass has motion sensors and GPS and can be controlled by voice commands or head tilts.
The PM got a chance to try out the new specs when she met with Google’s Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette and tried on the frames that designers are hoping to build in such a way that vision-impaired tech fans like Ms Gillard won't be required to wear both their own lenses and Google glass.
"...The research landscape is fast changing, presenting challenges for researchers in the domains of the veillances and associated social computing as they move to a model of open access and reuse of data.
This paper identifies how legal capacity, technical expertise, research capability and strategic policy enables re-use of research data in the domains of the veillances and associated social computing. Identity awareness addresses the required connectivity between research data and other elements in research ecosystems in order to make the data available and reusable beyond the initial research.
These connections include relations between the data, researchers, publications and research grants. In this paper correlations are drawn between veillances, social computing and best practice principles of identity awareness of research data in the domain of eScience.
A number of dataset cases articulate the challenges that face researchers as they seek to expose data created as a result of veillance or social computing research activities.
