TEDx Brussels will be taking place on 10 November starting at The project, comprising of a speculative life-like robotic environment, raises questions of how future environments could actively enable new forms of communication with the everyday. Artificial intelligent creatures have been designed with the capacity to learn and explore behaviors through interaction with participants.

Within this immersive installation interaction with the pets fosters human curiosity and play, forging intimate exchanges that are emotive and evolving over time. Conceived as an immersive installation environment, social and synthetic forms of systemic interactions allow the pets to engage and evolve their behaviors over time. Pets interact and stimulate participation with users through the use of animate behaviors communicated through kinesis, sound and illumination.

These behaviors evolve over time through interaction enabling each pet to develop personalities. Pet interactions are stimulated through interaction with human users or between other pets within the population. Intimacy and curiosity are explored as enabling agents that externalize personal experience through forms of direct visual, haptic and aural communication.

The exhibition will run until March The first episode aired yesterday and can be listened to here.

Probably India did not have a clear local name earlier because, like China , it seemed to be the principal portion of the entire world, and so simply the world itself. Sumeru or Meru , the only one inhabited with humans identical to us. The only question was how much of it was taken up by India. Indeed, India was once an island in the Mesozoic Ocean, but it moved north and collided with Asia.

In Chinese, we get various ways of referring to India. The modern form, , renders the name phonetically with characters of no particular semantic significance “print, stamp, or seal” and “a rule, law, measure, degree”. The older practice, however, was dedicated characters that might have a larger meaning. Thus, we get or , in which can be a kind of bamboo but otherwise is just used for India.

It’s like walking in the jungle with no road map to follow, said Bora, whose film on sex trafficking was supposed to be released last October but never received final approval. Although his script was approved, Bora said that the censorship board has failed to reach a verdict on the final version. No specific cuts have been ordered by the ministry, he said, but feedback he received suggested that censorship board members were concerned about the movie’s heavy social commentary.

The Ministry of Culture film department said they didn’t ban the film, but they didn’t grant the licence yet, said Bora, adding that although the film’s dialogue did not seem to cause controversy, the censorship board expressed concern over not less than 10 shots. Some of the criticism, Bora said, was over shots that the board claimed represented Cambodia in a bad light, such as a taxi driver throwing a cigarette out the window and a scene within the impoverished White Building community on Sothearos Boulevard.

Bora also said that other scenes were too political for the censors’ comfort, such as a shot of a character walking down a dusty road with Prime Minister Hun Sen’s office visible in the background. Bora also said that the board insisted that all plot conflicts be resolved before the credits roll.

Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email Interest in Birmingham’s Gun Quarter for student accommodation developments is showing no signs of slowing down as new plans are brought forward to build more than bedrooms. The project would see the demolition of a series of disused factory buildings on land bounded by Cliveland Street and the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal north of the city centre, known collectively as the former Globe Works.

The buildings date back to the mid s but are set to make way for a new development of five to ten storeys containing bedrooms in shared flats, 88 “twodios” with two bedrooms and shared facilities and en suite studios. Plans have been designed by London-based architecture practice TP Bennett on behalf of Solihull-based project management company Fielding and Beaumont. The scheme would also include space for 60 bikes but there will be no parking for cars. Like many other student accommodation projects, both in the Gun Quarter and elsewhere in the city, the halls will be privately run rather than being tied to one university.

However, they are likely to attract students studying at the nearby Aston University campus and Birmingham City University’s burgeoning new campus in Curzon Street. Oxford-based management and operation company CRM Students is likely to run the development once completed, joining its three other sites in the city – Kensington House and Bristol Street Houses in the city centre and Selly Oak Court.

A design statement prepared by TP Bennett said the application site comprised a mix of semi-derelict former industrial buildings dating from the mid th century onwards but historically the plot was home to the manufacture of iron hinges at the end of the s.
