Zeman Rene Marketing of virtual collectibles

With the rise of online multiplayer games and worlds, collecting virtual goods has become an increasing social activity and therefore established the virtual good's subset of virtual collectibles as a relevant category. The corresponding emergence of virtual markets leads to increasing economic and social relevance for virtual collectibles. This is not only true for the obvious markets in virtual worlds where operators try to maximize the economic impact for them and develop sustainable business models. It is also true for many activities in real and virtual worlds where virtual collectibles provide value to people and enhance their overall experience with and within the worlds. Understanding the specifics of virtual collectibles when it comes to marketing them, their value creation chain and the interaction with real and virtual worlds is a major challenge in a vastly unresearched business environment. A major aspect in identifying this is to understand the drivers behind collecting behavior, how they translate to the non-materiality of virtual goods, what can be done to overcome corresponding obstacles and use opportunities and what are the prerequisites and frameworks so that it is accomplished successfully. All this will lead to a dualism in attributes for virtual and real in many goods which increases the potential for virtual or partly virtual collectibles in many ways.

Debnath Pradip On Lacunary Ideal Convergence in Intuitionistic Fuzzy N-Normed Spaces

This book deals with a concise study of convergence in intuitionistic fuzzy n-normed linear spaces. This book mainly contains the author's own research work in the area of lacunary ideal convergence. Fuzzy normed spaces have been an increasingly popular area of mathematical research in recent times, both in terms of theory and applications. But the availability of books in the area of fuzzy normed spaces is very rare. This book provides a good discussion on the development of both fuzzy and intuitionistic fuzzy set theory. The transition from fuzzy normed linear spaces to intuitionistic fuzzy n-normed linear spaces has been presented systematically. Anybody interested in the theory or application of fuzzy or intuitionistic fuzzy normed spaces will find this book more than useful. The book is written in such a way that mathematical prerequisites are minimum. Since the main subject of study in this book is a generalisaton of the concept of usual convergence, so all the related results in convergence have been incorporated in the book. This book may be used as a ready reference for an up to date account of results in the theory of fuzzy/intuitionistic fuzzy normed linear spaces.

Christoph Schülner In the converging information, communication and entertainment sector, which types of organisations and business ventures are suitable to form virtual corporations and why.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: In a virtual organisation, connected by information technology, independent firms join their complementary core competencies to achieve a common goal. If those firms incorporate into a legal entity the virtual organisation, which is a temporary concept, transforms into a permanent virtual corporation. Advantages, potential drawbacks and organisational requirements of the virtual corporation are illustrated in the first part of this study. However, the virtual corporation is not just another chapter in the book of organisational theory, but a strategic tool for companies to succeed in a particular market. The industry which this study examines is the information, communication and entertainment sector. The sector is converging and industry structures change accordingly. Therefore companies operating in it need to cope with the effects of a rapidly changing market environment. As the virtual corporation promises to make firms more flexible, it may hence provide a viable solution for those firms. To asses if this assumption is true, this study proposes that a firm must look at its industry environment, its strategic objectives and its organisational capabilities. Only if there is a corresponding fit between those three factors, a firm is suited to become part of a virtual partnership. A number interviews attempt to validate the above framework. The result: even though a final prove would have to be delivered through a more extensive survey or questionnair...

Johan Rudolph The Tax Deductibility of Expenditure Incurred in Virtual Worlds

The rapid development of virtual worlds has made virtual currency and virtual property big business. Virtual currency from almost every game and social virtual world can be exchanged for real world currency. It is this type of exchanges from virtual currency to real world currency, generally at a profit, that caught the attention of tax authorities.The study concluded that where income from virtual worlds form part of a resident's gross income, the expenditure incurred in generating this income, by means of a trading activity, qualify for a deduction in terms of the general deduction formula, contained in section 11(a) of the Income Tax Act of South Africa.

Séverine Dubuisson Tracking with Particle Filter for High-dimensional Observation and State Spaces

This title concerns the use of a particle filter framework to track objects defined in high-dimensional state-spaces using high-dimensional observation spaces. Current tracking applications require us to consider complex models for objects (articulated objects, multiple objects, multiple fragments, etc.) as well as multiple kinds of information (multiple cameras, multiple modalities, etc.). This book presents some recent research that considers the main bottleneck of particle filtering frameworks (high dimensional state spaces) for tracking in such difficult conditions.

Virtual Teams in Higher Education. A Handbook for Students and Teachers

In recent years, virtual teams have become a feature of most corporate workplaces, yet few academic programs prepare students to work in virtual teams, and few textbooks support the development of key skills for virtual teamwork. The primary purpose of this book is to enable higher education students to participate in virtual teams with students from other institutions, who potentially operate in different countries, time zones, and/or cultures. The book guides students through the process of working in virtual team projects for their classes, and helps them to engage with the learning experiences, and to respond to potential challenges. The book is directed towards students within any of the following disciplines: Business; Information Technology; Com-munication Studies; and Engineering. One section of the book also guides teachers through the process of organizing virtual team projects, and explores the teacher/teacher collaboration that is an inevitable consequence of organizing inter-institutional student virtual team projects. It provides advice for teachers on how to manage administrative challenges such as conflicting institutional sched-ules and grading mechanisms. In addition, it discusses research themes and data gathering and analysis techniques for teachers who wish to publish findings about the virtual team process and outcomes. As well as students and teachers, the book is also useful for researchers exploring any of the following themes: Technology use in virtu...

Leading the Virtual Workforce How Great Leaders Transform Organizations in the 21st Century Praise for Leading the Virtual Workforce «Strong leadership in the best of times is difficult to achieve, but in today's rapidly changing business environment, leaders are tested in many new ways. Once again, Lojeski has a fresh take on what it takes to lead today's widely dispersed workforce.» —Ellen Pearlman, former editor-in-chief, CIO Insight magazine «Karen Lojeski has distilled the essence of the leader's role in 'managing' virtual teams. Her very relevant case stories illustrate that to be successful, the authentic leader must be able to create context and a collaborative lexicon for virtual knowledge sharing and must work diligently to build the social capital that is so vital to the success of virtual work groups. Karen's key contribution in this and her previous book, Uniting the Virtual Workforce, is the 'discovery' and clear articulation of her theory of the Virtual Distance Index, which leaders can use to measure and manage the process of virtual teamwork.» —Dave Davison, Chairman, Virtual Visuals Inc. «I agree entirely with Karen when she says that today, more than ever, effective leaders are desperately needed. She skillfully defines the dislocation and demarcation of leaders from followers through the 'Virtual Distance,' and yet paradoxically calls leaders to 'stoke the flames of innovation and cooperation in a complex, interwoven world.' This gives rise to her exploration of the Virtual Distance Leader. As Karen points out, the twenty-first-century leader must, amidst the conditions of pressure, change, and transformation, bring human endeavor and action to value and meaning for others.» —Adrian Machon, Director, Executive & Leadership Development, GlaxoSmithKline

The goal of this book is to describe new concepts for Internet next generation. This architecture is based on virtual networking using Cloud and datacenters facilities. Main problems concern 1) the placement of virtual resources for opening a new network on the fly, and 2) the urbanisation of virtual resource implemented on physical network equipment. This architecture deals with mechanisms capable of controlling automatically the placement of all virtual resources within the physical network. In this book, we describe how to create and delete virtual networks on the fly. Indeed, the system is able to create any new network with any kind of resource (e.g., virtual switch, virtual routers, virtual LSRs, virtual optical path, virtual firewall, virtual SIP-based servers, virtual devices, virtual servers, virtual access points, and so on). We will show how this architecture is compatible with new advances in SDN (Software Defined Networking), new high-speed transport protocol like TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) and LISP (Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol), NGN, IMS, Wi-Fi new generation, and 4G/5G networks. Finally, we introduce the Cloud of security and the virtualisation of secure elements (smartcard) that should definitely transform how to secure the Internet.

Olaniyi Iyiola Sobolev Spaces and Elliptic Partial Differential Equations

The main objective to the study of theory of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) is to insure or find out properties of solutions of PDE that are not directly attainable by direct analytical means. Certain function spaces have certain known properties for which solutions of PDEs can be classified. As a result, this work critically looked into some function spaces and their properties. We consider extensively, Lp-spaces, distribution theory and sobolev spaces. The emphasis is made on sobolev spaces, which permit a modern approach to the study of differential equations. Looking at the linear elliptic partial differential equations considered in this work, we see that the key is Lax-Milgram theorem and the full understanding of Sobolev spaces and its properties. We are able to remove the rigor associated with second order partial differential equations and present it in the form that we can easily handle through the function spaces discussed. The book is based on variational formulation of some Boundary Value Problems (PDEs) using some known theorem (Lax-Milgram Theorem) to ascertain the existence and uniqueness of weak solution to such linear Elliptic PDEs.

Tapan Dhar, Dhar Tapan Public Spaces in Hong Kong Housing Estates

About half of total population lives in public housing in Hong Kong. Hong Kong Housing Authority is committed to develop a highly interacted community and social network by improving the layout-design of public housing estates over decades. However, research suggests that the community interaction in housing estates in Hong Kong has been declining day by day. This study focuses on public space focusing on outdoor communal spaces in public housing layouts of different prototypes and periods. Attributes of public spaces, that impact on neighborly interaction within estates in Hong Kong, have been highlighted for investigation here. This monograph sequentially aims to look into the following research questions - How does a layout design influence public spaces and impact on neighborly interaction? What makes a space successful to the people of different groups, ages, and interests? The answers of these questions would help the design-professionals and the city-authorities to shed some light on public spaces in dealing with new and existing housing layouts at the neighborhood level in Hong Kong as well as in the world.

As an industrial process, construction is unique in that the method of procurement of any built asset (building, infrastructure or process plant) defines many of the subsequent management processes that take place during the building phase – a very different situation to the purchase of goods and services in most other industries. The procurement process is therefore central to the success of any construction project and many of the problems which impact construction projects can be traced back to the procurement phase, so a good understanding of the methods of procurement and the influence it has on project success is essential for all those working in the industry. Much has changed in the global construction industry since publication of the first edition of Building Procurement, for example the global liquidity & banking crisis and the debt burden of many major economies. This new edition has been rewritten to take account of these significant developments, but at its core it continues to provide a critical examination and review of current procurement practices in the UK, continental Europe (including EU procurement procedures), China and the USA. It retains its original strong emphasis on the need for clients to establish achievable objectives which reflect the project business case and focuses on development of suitable strategies and management structures to meet those objectives in the current construction climate. Building Procurement will be essential reading for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students of construction management and practitioners working in all areas of construction management.

Composition operators have been the subject matter of intensive study over past several decades and they find applications in ergodic theory ,quantum mechanics and other branches of mathematical and physical sciences . The 1st chapter of the book contains introductory material . The compact, Fredholm generalized composition operators are characterized in the second chapter. The Hermitian,Normal ,Quasi normal ,Isometric and co isometric generalized composition operators are presented in the third chapter. It is shown that most of the properties of the generalized multiplication operators differ from the multiplication operators acting on other function spaces .eg:- On most of the function spaces multiplication operators are normal .But this result is not valid incase of generalized multiplication operators on weighted Hardy spaces . In this book some light is thrown on differential and anti-differential operators acting on weighted Hardy spaces .

Debbie D. DuFrene, Carol M. Lehman Managing Virtual Teams, Second Edition

Virtual teams are an integral part of today's global business environment. Traditional face-to-face communication is frequently replaced with technology-mediated communication methods including phone, e-mail, fax, synchronous chat programs, and videoconferencing. While virtual teams offer various advantages to organizations and individuals in flexibility and the ability to overcome geographic distance, they face unique challenges. Virtual teams often are made up of members of various cultures and ages with diverse communication styles. Men and women also tend to behave differently in virtual environments. Challenges occur in the forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning phases of team development, and virtual teams must be able to cope effectively with those obstacles if they are to be successful and reach their potential. Team participants should be selected carefully for various personal characteristics that help ensure success and be trained in how to be effective virtual team members. Various team strategies can be implemented to improve effectiveness and satisfaction of virtual team members.

Sergio Jardino Strings in Deformed Spaces

"Strings in Deformed Spaces" is a tranlation of the author's Ph.D. thesis. It gives an overview of the gauge/string correspondence and a careful study of some of its classical moving string solutions. These strings perform their dynamics on some of the more important backgrounds of string theory, namely the five dimensional anti-de Sitter multiplied by an five dimensional sphere and the ten dimensional minkowskian plane space. These backgrounds are also studied in their deformed version. The procedure of deformation, its effect on the space's geometry, and also its effect on the energy of the moving strings are calculated in great detail. The reader interested in a fast way to develop a research work with strings in any kind of deformed spaces will find in this book a valuable aid to its proposal.

Shonhiwa Kudakwashe Options for Peace-Building in Zimbabwe

Conflicts in Zimbabwe have caused communities to be divided along political party lines. Violence has been widespread and this has exacerbated economic collapse and social polarization. The acts of violence and loss of life and property and livelihoods must be addressed urgently. In high density urban areas this violence continues to divide communities. This research seeks to explore options for peace-building in high density urban areas of Zimbabwe. The Chitungwiza high density area outside Harare was used as a population of the study. The objectives of the research were to find out residents' concepts of peace, to explore the history of political violence in Chitungwiza and to seek options for peace-building in Zimbabwe's urban areas. The study drew on Laderach's reconciliation and peace-building framework, Chester Crockers's framework for institutional peace-building. The researcher used a qualitative approach to field research and interviewed victims and perpetrators of violence as well as elected leaders in the Chitungwiza community. The main findings was that options for peacebuilding should start with orientation towards peace-building for community residents.

Stephan Franz Furtner Effiziente Gestaltung von virtual communities

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Obwohl die möglichen Auswirkungen des Konzeptes der virtual community auf Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft in den letzten Jahren bereits erkannt und dargelegt wurden, existieren keinerlei Forschungsansätze, in denen die Beziehung zwischen dem Organisator und den Mitgliedern einer virtual community unter Verwendung einer fundierten ökonomischen Theorie analysiert werden. So wird zwar in der Literatur eine mögliche Entlohnung der Mitglieder für die Ausführung der an sie delegierten Tätigkeiten thematisiert; vor welchem theoretischen Hintergrund dies aber geschehen soll, bleibt gleichwohl unklar. Eine virtuelle Gemeinschaft ist genauso wie ihr realweltliches Pendant auf die aktive Partizipation ihrer Mitglieder angewiesen. Nach Hagel/Armstrong stellen Mitglieder und besonders die von ihnen zur Verfügung gestellten Inhalte einen „einzigartigen Aktivposten“ dar und sind somit ein kritischer Faktor für den wirtschaftlichen Erfolg einer virtual community. Die größte Anziehungskraft einer virtuellen Gemeinschaft resultiert in erster Linie aus den Beiträgen der aktiven Mitglieder und erst zweitrangig vom Design der virtual community oder dem redaktionell erstellten Inhalten. „Member participation is seen as a key ingredient in weaving the fabric of a virtual community.“ Der Organisator der virtual community überträgt gewisse Aufgaben an die Mitglieder. Diese Aufgaben umfassen folgende Tätigkeiten: die Veröffentlichung von Erfahrungsberichten und Meinungen, das Anw...

H. Williams Paul Model Building in Mathematical Programming

The 5th edition of Model Building in Mathematical Programming discusses the general principles of model building in mathematical programming and demonstrates how they can be applied by using several simplified but practical problems from widely different contexts. Suggested formulations and solutions are given together with some computational experience to give the reader a feel for the computational difficulty of solving that particular type of model. Furthermore, this book illustrates the scope and limitations of mathematical programming, and shows how it can be applied to real situations. By emphasizing the importance of the building and interpreting of models rather than the solution process, the author attempts to fill a gap left by the many works which concentrate on the algorithmic side of the subject. In this article, H.P. Williams explains his original motivation and objectives in writing the book, how it has been modified and updated over the years, what is new in this edition and why it has maintained its relevance and popularity over the years: http://www.statisticsviews.com/details/feature/4566481/Model-Building-in-Mathematical-Programming-published-in-fifth-edition.html

Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Kultur, Technik und Völker, Note: 1,0, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (Institut für Soziologie), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In dieser Arbeit wird das Konzept der Virtual Community, das Howard Rheingold 1993 mit Erscheinen des Buches ‚The Virtual Community: Homesteading on the Electronic Frontier' geprägt hat, vor dem Hintergrund technischer Entwicklungen und den daraus resultierenden Folgen erneut einer Analyse unterzogen. ‚Virtual Community' wird als Konzept seit jeher problematisch wahrgenommen. Da die soziologische Definition von ‚Community', also Gemeinschaft, deutlich von dem differiert, was unter ‚Virtual Community' im allgemeinen Sprachgebrauch verstanden wird und wegen des Adjektivs ‚Virtual' ist die Bezeichnung seit Erscheinen des Buches von Rheingold unzählige Male auf seine theoretische Anwendbarkeit geprüft worden. Das Konzept ‚Virtual Community' erlangt jedoch erst Hand in Hand mit der Entwicklung von Social Software während der Durchsetzung typischer Web 2.0 Anwendungen eine neue Relevanz.Neben der Definition von Social Software wird eine analytische Annäherung an das Konzept ‚Virtual Community' vorgenommen und zu seinem originären Ursprung zurückverfolgt.

Konrad P. Schöbel On the Geometry of Instanton Moduli Spaces

The study of instanton moduli spaces has led to striking results in the geometry of four-manifolds, for they constitute the groundwork for the construction of Donaldson's polynomial invariants, which are capable of distinguishing non-diffeomorphic smooth structures. This construction fails when the base manifold has a negative definite intersection form, since in this case the moduli spaces contain reducible solutions and these are usually singular points. This book is therefore concerned with the study of the geometry of instanton moduli spaces for those manifolds which have negative definite intersection form. In the first part, the topology and the Riemannian geometry near the reducible locus are described. This yields a purely topological condition for one construction of differential topological invariants. In the second part, explicit examples of instanton moduli spaces are computed for all minimal complex surfaces of class VII with second Betti number one and with respect to any Gauduchon metric. This monograph contains the author's PhD thesis, which was written at the Université de Provence Aix-Marseille I (France) under the supervision of Professor Andrei Teleman.

Camillo Sitte, Charles T. Stewart The Art of Building Cities. City Building According to Its Artistic Fundamentals

2013 Reprint of 1945 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Camillo Sitte (1843-1903) was a noted Austrian architect, painter and theoretician who exercised great influence on the development of urban planning in Europe and the United States. The publication at Vienna in May 1889 of "Der Stadtebau nach seinen künstlerischen Grundsatzen" ("The Art of Building Cities") began a new era in Germanic city planning. Sitte strongly criticized the current emphasis on broad, straight boulevards, public squares arranged primarily for the convenience of traffic, and efforts to strip major public or religious landmarks of adjoining smaller structures regarded as encumbering such monuments of the past. Sitte proposed instead to follow what he believed to be the design objectives of those whose streets and buildings shaped medieval cities. He advocated curving or irregular street alignments to provide ever-changing vistas. He called for T-intersections to reduce the number of possible conflicts among streams of moving traffic. He pointed out the advantages of what came to be know as "turbine squares"--civic spaces served by streets entering in such a way as to resemble a pin-wheel in plan. His teachings became widely accepted in Austria, Germany, and Scandinavia, and in less than a decade his style of urban design came to be accepted as the norm in those countries.

Ale Ebrahim Nader Introduction to Virtual R.D Teams Model for New Product Development

Increased global competitions have urged small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to develop new products faster. Virtual research and development (R&D) teams in SMEs can offer a solution to speed up time-to-market of new product development (NPD). However, factors that affect the effectiveness of virtual teams for NPD are still not adequately verified. This book presents the correlations between virtual R&D team constructs and virtual team effectiveness by developing a "Virtual Research and Development Team" (ViR&DT) model. The items, which may influence the effectiveness of virtual teams, are taken from the literature. Through an online survey and by application of structural equation modeling (SEM) technique, the proposed model has been tested. The results suggest that the process construct is strongly correlated to the effectiveness of virtual teams. Therefore, NPD managers in virtual R&D teams should concentrate on the process of new product development rather than simply equipping the teams with the latest technology or employing highly qualified experts. Further empirical research is recommended to fully explore and appreciate the breadth of application of the ViR&DT model.

Paul R. Halmos Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces

2012 Reprint of 1942 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. As a newly minted Ph.D., Paul Halmos came to the Institute for Advanced Study in 1938--even though he did not have a fellowship--to study among the many giants of mathematics who had recently joined the faculty. He eventually became John von Neumann's research assistant, and it was one of von Neumann's inspiring lectures that spurred Halmos to write "Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces." The book brought him instant fame as an expositor of mathematics. Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces combines algebra and geometry to discuss the three-dimensional area where vectors can be plotted. The book broke ground as the first formal introduction to linear algebra, a branch of modern mathematics that studies vectors and vector spaces. The book continues to exert its influence sixty years after publication, as linear algebra is now widely used, not only in mathematics but also in the natural and social sciences, for studying such subjects as weather problems, traffic flow, electronic circuits, and population genetics. In 1983 Halmos received the coveted Steele Prize for exposition from the American Mathematical Society for "his many graduate texts in mathematics dealing with finite dimensional vector spaces, measure theory, ergodic theory, and Hilbert space."

Rosi Maria Heller Telepresence. A modern way for collaborative work

Raising global competition, increasing customer demand, requests to deliver just-in-time, and an increasing pressure to cut costs are only a few examples to express the need for more flexibility, speed and agility of organizations. Companies in different industry segments can achieve this requirement by flexible organizational structures, a knowledgeable and motivated workforce, and the application of technology and communication media. In this context the composition of teams plays an important role because it has proven to be a fast and comprehensive way to solve problems, to fulfil customer demand, and to develop new products and processes. Over the past decade the construct of teams has further developed into so called virtual teams. Virtual teams are teams which include team members who work together remotely from various locations around the globe.The modality of working in virtual teams becomes more popular as the world's population becomes more connected. Research proposes that virtual teams are as effective as traditional teams. Virtual teams offer the opportunity to meet the challenges of cost effectiveness, product quality, and speed in an international setting that is driven by customer orientation and a rapidly changing economy. Furthermore, people with the most experience and knowledge for a specific business topic can be brought together no matter where they are located in the world.In a virtual team setting, modern communication technology plays an importa...

Leon Schaik van Practical Poetics in Architecture

Integrate poetics into real-world spaces by bringing theory down to earth Practical Poetics in Architecture takes poetics out of the theory class and into the design studio, showing architects how the atmospheric and experiential qualities of built structures can be intentionally considered and planned. With an emphasis on analysing and explaining the sensibility of poetics at work in designing and constructing architecture, this book features projects from architects around the world that demonstrate the principles of poetics come to life. The rich illustration of two hundred colour images, including analytical diagrams, plans, sections, and photos, make this insightful guide a highly visual foray into a topic that has thus far remained more theoretical than practical. The text is matter-of-fact and concrete, yet remains richly connected to its forbears and the writings of William Lethaby, Gaston Bachelard, and Steen Eiler Rasmussen. The perspective is contemporary in its examples and its connections to the evolving science of perception. An established seminar topic in theory classes around the world, poetics tends to rely heavily on classic philosophic texts – until now. Practical Poetics in Architecture brings theory down to earth to show architects how to invoke poetics when designing real projects. Integrate poetics principles into real-world designs Consider atmosphere in terms of form, space, and acoustics Study actual projects that bring poetics into real spaces Take cues from analytical diagrams of projects accounting for context Poetics – the accumulated experience of place, space, and culture – has become more critical in recent years as the atmospheric and experiential qualities of built spaces have become more elusive in the virtual age. Practical Poetics in Architecture provides real guidance for real projects, and brings poetics out of the mind and onto the plans.

Certain products involve high involvement decision-making with low purchase frequencies in general. At the same time, virtual shelf space is unlimited and consumers face a variety of products, which exceeds their rational capabilities. This condition requires online shop operators to implement search tools in their web sites that allow consumers to structure and reduce complexity, both on a catalogue and a product level. Consumers in general do not always possess product expertise, especially in the case of low frequency purchases such as digital cameras. Virtual product advisors intend to fill this gap.The primary objective of the thesis is to investigate the interaction effect between different levels of consumer knowledge and a chosen product search approach. A special focus is put on a virtual product advisor and a facet search as a structuring tool. Based on theoretical work in marketing, psychology, information system management a set of hypotheses was developed pertaining ...

Gabrielle Collet Z(e)ro Spaces. Poiesis and the Art of Collaborative Creativity

Книга "Z(e)ro Spaces. Poïesis and the Art of Collaborative Creativity".An ambitious theoretical experiment whose aim is to produce a generalapproach to the notion of collaboration through a vast series of historicalexamples taken from different artistic practices. Through the core concept of Fictive World Formulae, inspired by Giambattista Vico and Markus Gabriel, the notion of "fiction" is used as a generator of possibility. A fictive world, in other words, is what Deleuze calls the "virtual" : not a parallel world or a constructed representation, but a poiein as creation of possibility within the real. The theme of possibility is in this sense underlying and sustaining the whole project : thepurpose of an intellectual and pedagogical collaboration, suggests Collet, is to create possibility; collaboration consists in generating possibility.This is maybe the ultimate meaning of what Collet calls "Zero spaces".Alongside with Alain Badiou's ontological notion of ensemble vide, the zero space is an empty space not in a nihilistic sense, but as a void that contains all the possibilities that can be generated in collaborative contexts. The Zero space is the space in which the fictive world formulae are created. It is a literal, in-the-world model of creation. As the author doesn't fail to underline, the "zero" is not only a set but also a circle, i.e. a context of collaboration in which the poiein as creation of possibility can take ...

Faisal Goussous Grasp Planning for Digital Humans

Digital humans have recently had a great impact on the field of ergonomics. An increasing number of organizations are now using digital humans in the design and testing of complex systems. Instead of classical prototyping approaches used for testing and evaluation of new designs, these organizations are relying on simulations in virtual environments to get feedback about their designs. Since a primary goal of using digital humans is to study the interaction between the human and a product in a virtual world, digital humans must have sufficient capabilities to manipulate and grasp virtual objects. We apply several ideas from the fields of robotics, pattern recognition and computer graphics to create a new interactive grasping system for a digital human called SantosTM that is being developed at the Virtual Soldier Research Laboratory at The University of Iowa
