It will show the development of the research and innovation, and the funding involved, along with the challenges on the way, and define some key points that are required in order to maximize the impact of work, including developing strong partnerships with external organisations. https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7915 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:41:17 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7915 Paul Holmes - Outside the box Paul Holmes presents his latest video artwork, “Outside the Box”, which has shown at exhibitions in the UK, India and Japan. Paul will speak about the aesthetic methodology behind the piece. As with all Paul’s work, this involves the exploration of non-narrative techniques in time-based art. https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7914 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:39:08 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7914 Malcolm Innes - The 12 Closes Project – creative solutions and community co-design for historic urban nightscapes The 12 Closes Project, initiated by Edinburgh World Heritage Trust, is an ambitious 4 year project worth over £720,000 to transform a series of historic Closes off Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. The project will use creative lighting, projection and artwork to perform a night time rehabilitation of some of the most run down spaces in the World Heritage Site. Employing a process of community co-design, the 12 Closes revitalisation will be create with the residents and businesses that travel these pedestrian spaces every day. https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7913 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:37:07 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7913 Gemma Webster - Connecting Community Heritage through Linked Data The CURIOS project explores how digital archives for rural community heritage groups can be made more sustainable so that volunteer members can maintain a lasting digital presence. It developed software tools to help remote rural communities to collaboratively maintain and present information about their cultural heritage. The objective was to investigate the use of semantic web/ linked data technology to build a general, flexible and “future proof” software platform that could help such projects to develop digital archives and to be sustainable over time. As an interdisciplinary project we aimed to synthesise a narrative that draws from both social science and computer science perspectives by critically reflecting upon the novel approach taken and the results that were produced. https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7912 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:34:24 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7912 Lourdes Alwis - Optical Fibre Sensors for Civil, Chemical and Biomedical Applications Optical fibre technology offers several advantages over conventional electrical systems such as immunity to electromagnetic interference, small size, light weight and high data capacity. Following the Telecommunications boom in the 1990s, optical fibre technology is now vastly utilized for sensing within the fields of civil, chemical and biomedical engineering. The short talk will introduce the optical fibre sensor technology and its state-of-the-art applications. https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7911 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:27:07 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7911 Dan Ridley-Ellis - Seeing the trees for the wood The Centre for Wood Science and Technology is interested in the physical and mechanical properties of wood and how these affect its performance in different applications. Through our research and technology development we support the forest and timber industries to get the most from the forest resource. Our aim is to avoiding wastage of energy and value from the nursery to the end user, and to help wood products meet the technical performances required by specifiers. This helps ensure the future of economically, environmentally and socially sustainable forestry, providing incentive for afforestation and an ongoing supply of renewable material for construction and manufacturing. https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7910 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:24:42 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7910 Patrick White - Can we sustainably intensify dairy farms? Sustainable intensification of agriculture is required to meet increasing global consumption while protecting the environment and preserving biodiversity. Collaborating with Scotland’s Rural College and Kew Botanic Gardens, my research is looking at the potential for sustainable intensification of dairy farming, a major global food producer. My results suggest that by modifying composition of cropping, it may be possible to increase production while increasing biodiversity components of two key indicator groups: vascular plants and epigeal spiders. https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7909 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:23:08 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7909 Augusto Esteves - People-to-Machine (P2M): User Experience in the Internet-of-Everything Our everyday environments are populated with increasing numbers of devices that afford digital control. While these devices are diverse in form and functionality, there is a desire to provide users with uniform control across smart environments. User research in smart homes specifically highlighted a need for instant control, for users to adapt their environment on impulse. This talk will introduce several novel interaction techniques for such environments, including Orbits, a gaze-only input technique that enables immediate, hands-free interaction with smart devices and environments. https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7908 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:21:03 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7908 Kevin Hannam - The Multiple Impacts of the Mobilities Paradigm In this presentation I will give a brief overview of what has been called the mobilities paradigm or mobilities turn in the social sciences (Sheller and Urry, 2004; Hannam et al., 2006). I will focus then on some of the key impacts (academic and for planning and policy) in terms of wellbeing, the information society and sustainable communities, recognising that these are inter-related in terms of human mobilities. https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7906 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:14:50 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7906 Matt Wale (SLSSS) - Contradicting Cousteau – The Not So Silent World Matt Wale's three minute thesis at Research Conference 2016 https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7905 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:11:25 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7905 Jenny Patterson (SNMSC) - Exploring women’s and midwives’ experiences of interacting with one another in the context of women developing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder post Childbirth Jenny Patterson's three minute thesis at Research Conference 2016 https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7901 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 11:56:43 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7901 Fraser Burke (SACI) - The Effectiveness of Limitation in Musical Improvisation Fraser Burke's three minute thesis at Research Conference 2016 https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7900 Wed, 03 Aug 2016 09:53:02 GMT https://onlinevideo.napier.ac.uk/Play/7900 Frances Ryan (SoC) - Online information: Your reputation friend… or foe?
