Re: W08 - Ursula Damm

Ursula Damm's presentation, was overstimulating for me. There were many more dimensions to her work than i could perceive. Many of her science related ones did remind me of what Fabian speaks of. From my limited exposure, there seem to be many artists and designers who present work on speculative te...

Re: W02V - Prof. Yasamin Mostofi Sensors Lab

A very interesting tidbit of information that she revealed about her own journey was how she got to her present research area to begin with. She mentioned that she had a background in robotics, and then came to study communications in Stanford. In an attempt to combine her background knowledge she w...

Re: Akshay Cadambi’s Project

Final Project: A note on the methodology: * The reason I chose to investigate the Science, Engineering, Art and Design fields was partly because it came up in one of the class discussions. On reading further into it, Rich Gold's classification of these as 'the four creative hats' seemed to work wel...

Re: Akshay Cadambi’s Project

Final Project Proposal: I'm going to explore the intuition-information dualism and try to explicitly understand how this plays out in different fields. Once I've made a series of posts that draw from each of the many disciplines, I'm going to draw from all of these to try to formulate a general und...

Re: Akshay Cadambi’s Project

Week 5 Since this project is centered around the idea of intuition, I feel that it is worthwhile to investigate the definitions of what is intuition. Intuition has often been associated with immediate, sudden, and tacit insight or understanding. Malcom Gladwell, in his book ' Blink ' gives a very g...

Re: Akshay Cadambi’s Project

Week 3 and 4: On thinking about this project for some time, some questions on validity came up. Since intuition is implicit and intrinsic, is it worthwhile to explicitly bring it up. Intuition centric instructional design has existed before. For example, Educational Sloyd, was a system of handicraf...

Re: W05V - Prof. Miguel Eckstein Group

An interesting thing that I thought about while visiting this lab was that to study the 'pathway' of the eye's point of focus to help understand the way we study medical images, by using medical images: fMRI scans. This feedback loop is very interesting. A curious impact of eye tracking studies is t...

Re: Akshay Cadambi’s Project

Week 2 The more I thought about these intuitions that I've gained in electronics, and the more I read the book 'The Art of Electronics', I've come to realize that these intuitions have been gained despite me reading the book. More so, I would never have realized some of these intuitions unless poin...

Re: Akshay Cadambi’s Project

Week 1 This idea was partly inspired by the book 'The Art of Electronics' by Paul Horowitz and Winfield Hill. This book attempts to teach both the fundamentals, and the nuts and bolts of electronics. What was interesting, and unique, about this book was that it placed a certain emphasis on how to *...

Re: W05V - Prof. Francesco Bullo Group

It was interesting to see that not everyone in the lab worked towards a higher research goal. Each had their own unique problem that, at it's core, had applied mathematics and control theory. As Francesco described it, 'organized chaos'. It was mentioned several times that they need to gather domain...
