    LKYCIC Brown Bag Lunchtime Talk

    SUTD, LKYCIC meeting room (Building 3, Level 2), 4 a.m. TO 5 a.m.

    Public participation has increasingly become an integral component of urban planning and policy. We see this not only in traditional planning efforts, but also in more recent trends such as smart cities, which has a strong emphasis on citizen engagement - resulting in an array of sophisticated tools that have enabled public participation to go digital. But what do we actually expect to get out of public participation mechanisms? To what extent do ideas and inputs generated by the public make their way into actual planning and policy decisions? In this talk, I move towards testing an empirical method to evaluate the quality and creativity of ideas generated through public participation, and ask the question of whether the way we design our engagement activities are appropriate to elicit responses that can truly strengthen and evolve our cities. To facilitate a more interactive dialog, please also take 3 to 4 minutes to evaluate six ideas generated through a public participation event in the United States using the following link: lkycic.sutd.edu.sg/evaluation. All are welcome to participate in this evaluation!

    LKYCIC Brown Bag Lunchtime Talk

    SUTD, LKYCIC meeting room (Building 3, Level 2), 4 a.m. TO 5 a.m.

    One of our main tasks in urban planning and design is to draft possible solutions, and arriving at a decision to then create guidelines into the future. Computer-based technologies supporting urban science have been applied to planning and design problems since the 1960s. However, information technology has significantly evolved in the last decade and our world is becoming more and more digital. A data-driven society can result in the focus on citizens being pushed to the fringe. It is tempting to let data solve congestion and climate change impacts but that can also lead us down a path of policy blind to larger societal concerns. We are therefore in need for decision-making models in urban science that take the societal aspects into consideration, either with the model itself or in the process. This is a crucial innovation that modern cities need to take into account. Therefore, in this brown bag talk I will present two approaches: First, a socio-spatial model ‘space syntax’ and second, a participatory modelling process. Let’s create smart cities with smart citizens on board!

    LKYCIC Brown Bag Lunchtime Talk

    SUTD, Library Training Room (Building 1, Level 1), 4 a.m. TO 5 a.m.

    Housing is one part of a person’s total ecosystem, with constant change and adaptation occurring due to both internal and external forces. The older person sits at the centre of these forces, perhaps with functional difficulties and limitations, but also with their own history and biography that makes up their sense of self, and with access to different internal and external resources that enable them to optimize enjoyment of life. The person may have different capacities and abilities, and manifest different behaviours that reflect their personality, values and motivations. However, these abilities and behaviours can also be constrained by their environment, with housing being the first layer, then the neighbourhood, and then the wider political, economic and physical environment. This presentation will examine the importance of housing within the context of these personal and wider factors, and against the changing circumstances facing women in later life. The discussion will draw from longitudinal and qualitative data provided by women in the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health, examining changes in women’s functional capacity and housing circumstances against a policy emphasis on “ageing in place”.

    DManD Centre Seminar Series: Enabling Next Generation Additive Manufacturing

    Think Tank 19, Building 2, Level 3 (2.304), 7:30 a.m. TO 8:30 a.m.

    Title| Enabling Next Generation Additive Manufacturing: The 3D Deposition of Functional Materials for the Additive Manufacturing of Smart Devices Speaker| Richard Hague, Professor of Innovative Manufacturing, Director, Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM), Faculty of Engineering, University of Nottingham. ABSTRACT The single material nature of additive manufacturing (AM) processes largely limits its application to passive non-structural components. The ability to additively manufacture multi-material products greatly expands its possibilities. However, the deposition of dissimilar materials throughout a 3D volume brings about significant technical challenges, particularly in the deposition of useful materials. This presentation will give a realistic view of the state of the art of “multi-functional” AM. The current activities of the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) at the University of Nottingham where a programme for next-generation, multi-functional AM is undertaken will be shared. Principally funded by the UK’s national science funder (EPSRC) and working with key industry partners, this research is predominantly, but not exclusively, utilizing novel jetting-based technologies for the co-deposition of both structural and functional materials for electronic, pharmaceutical and biological structures and devices over varying length scales. ABOUT THE SPEAKER Richard Hague is Professor of Innovative Manufacturing and Director of the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) at the University of Nottingham. Having worked in the AM field for 25 years, he is internationally recognized both for scientific endeavour and creating impact through industrial exploitation where he has a background of leading and managing large multi-disciplinary, multi-partner research projects from both EPSRC and industry. His research interests are focused on AM specific processes, materials and computational methods across a wide spectrum of industrial sectors with current research programmes focused on next generation multi-functional AM. He has received multiple international awards and honours and is the co-founder and Director of Added Scientific Ltd, a spin out from the University of Nottingham focused on implementing AM technical solutions to industry.

    SCDF Lifesavers Innovation Challenge

    SCDF, 3:13 a.m. TO 3 p.m.

    SCDF is the national authority for emergency response and is often called upon to help in an accident or emergency, such as for medical incidents outside hospitals, fires and road traffic accidents. Our fire fighters and paramedics respond to about 200,000 calls for emergency help in a year and we aim to provide help within 8 to 11 minutes of a request. With an ageing population, higher urban and transportation density and more complex city structures, the demand for SCDF’s resources is expected to increase. Through the use of mobile applications such as myResponder, and crowdsourcing, SCDF has enlisted more than 20,000 volunteers to render first aid in cardiac arrest situations before SCDF arrives on scene. Timing of response is crucial in the survival rate for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest cases, and often the community is closer and can respond faster than any ambulance can hope to arrive. The programme has successfully saved 9 lives. In a similar fashion, SCDF is enlisting the community to respond to simple rubbish chute fires, as every year, there are 1,000 over such cases. SCDF recognises that technological developments in the 4th industrial revolution, such as data analytics, mobile computing, Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing are revolutionising the way the public expects to be served. The challenge seeks to encourage teams to imagine how the public might demand of SCDF’s services and how SCDF could respond in this new technological age.
