Science Nation - Science of Shopping

submitted by: nsf
Go into any grocery store and cameras may be watching you. These cameras are not looking for thieves, they're looking for shoppers! The cameras are focused on the tops of peoples' heads (so it's anonymous), but they don't have to see faces to track which store aisles get the most traffic and how long consumers spend looking over products. With support from the National Science Foundation, computer scientist and CEO of VideoMining Rajeev Sharma and his team have designed software that...

GREEN REVOLUTION: CITYCAR

submitted by: nsf
Lisa Van Pay of the National Science Foundation meets with Will Lark, an MIT graduate student working on the CityCar project. The two discuss the technologies that make this vehicle unique and explore the relationship between art, science, and design. The CityCar team hopes that their ideas will some day be part of the solution to problems common to many cities: pollution, traffic and lack of green space. This story allows the viewer to see how researchers identify problems, build models to...

Notes on Design and Science

submitted by: bartneck
Design has evolved from a craft into an academic discipline, but it still falls short on defining its own science. I review previous approaches to Design Science and conclude that the subject–object dualism is the one of the main obstacles. I then apply the Metaphysics of Quality to overcome the dualism and propose Quality as the phenomenon of Design Science. Next, I propose to utilize the analysis of interaction effects as a mean to investigate Quality. Last, I recommend steps we can take...
