Nowadays, our society has been shaped by many different elements. Have you been wondering how all these elements interact with each other and at the same time shape our understanding of the society? 

我们的社会由各种不同的元素塑造而成。你是否有思考过这些元素如何相互影响并影响我们对社会的认知呢?

On July 13th, we’ll invite Arlene Ducao (educator at MIT & NUY, CEO of Multimer) to x.factory, to share with us about how changes in digital fabrication cost and culture are changing our understanding of populations and environments. 

7月13日晚,我们将邀请麻省理工、纽约大学的老师、多聚体公司CEO杜卡阿琳来到柴火造物中心,分享以下主题内容:数字制造成本变化以及文化的发展如何影响我们对人口和环境的理解。

 

Arlene’s talk with consist of two main areas of research she teaches at New York University: 

  1. an examination of how globalization, the rise of maker culture, and falling costs have changed the face of digital fabrication in China and the United States.

  2. a reflection on how maker culture and falling costs have made the technologies of crowdsourcing, wearable sensors, and citizen science all viable concepts for the (re)development of new places, both indoor, outdoor, and in virtual reality.

Besides, she will also talk about her MIT-spinoff Multimer has worked with the opportunities and challenges of the quantified self in the smart city.

杜卡阿琳在纽约大学主要进行以下两个领域的探索、研究与教学:

  1. 对全球化的剖析:创客文化发展、成本降低等因素将如何影响中国和美国的数字制造领域。

  2. 反思:创客文化以及成本降低如何使科技众包、可穿戴传感器和公民科学等概念变得可行,并能应用于室内外环境的改造以及虚拟现实中。

在此次分享会中,杜卡阿琳将会分享她在这两个方面的研究。除此之外,她也将分享她的公司多聚体在智慧城市方面的机会和挑战。

Multimer, an MIT Media Lab spinoff based in New York City provides a data-driven understanding of how humans cognitively and physically experience spatial environments. Through its advanced technologies that measure biometric data to quantify human sentiment, Multimer helps architects, urban planners, and space professionals make better design interventions.

 

多聚体是⼀家位于纽约市的MIT媒体实验室分⽴公司,提供了数据驱动的理解,即⼈类如何认知和体验空间环境。通过它的测量⽣物识别数据来量化⼈类情绪的先进 技术,多聚体帮助建筑师,城市规划⼈员,和空间规划的专业⼈⼠进⾏更好的设计⼲预。

 

 MindRider 智能可穿戴

Originally developed at MIT, MindRider is a helmet that tracks, in real time, how your rides, movement, and location engage your mind. The MindRider app maps your engagement, giving you new insight into your riding experience, and providing a unique resource for riding communities and street advocacy.

MindRider是多聚体研发的一款智能可穿戴产品,最初是在麻省理工学院里做出来的,它可以实时监测你的骑行数据,包括骑行期间根据位置和运动而产生的脑电波数据。MindRider还配有一个APP来记录信息,让您更深入了解您的骑行经历,并为城市规划师和建筑师提供资讯,知道如何更好地进行城市骑行社区和街区的设计和规划。

 Speaker 演讲嘉宾 


Arlene Ducao, creative engineer, entrepreneur, and educator

杜卡阿琳,创意工程师、企业家、教育者


Arlene Ducao makes technologies that examine the relationship between the natural landscape, our built environments, and ourselves. She is a Principal at the DuKode Studio, a scientific and environmental design firm in Brooklyn, and the CEO and co-founder of Dukode's affiliate company Multimer, a spinoff from MIT Media Lab. At Multimer, she developed her invention MindRider, the geospatial brainwave-mapping system profiled in WIRED, New York Times, Discovery Channel, MSNBC, Fast Company, Science Channel, and many more. 


杜卡阿琳善于利用科技来研究和探索我们与自然环境、人造环境之间的关系。她是DuKode工作室的负责人也是多聚体的CEO。DuKode工作室是位于纽约布鲁克林的一家科学可视化公司,专注科技与环境设计;而多聚体则是从麻省理工实验室走出来的一家公司。上文提及的地理空间脑波数据收集项目MindRider就是杜卡阿琳在多聚体开发出来的。该项目曾被连线杂志、纽约时报、探索频道、微软全国广播公司节目、快公司和科学频道等媒体争相报道。



Arlene is also a recipient of the South by Southwest Winburne Community Service Award for her work on satellite mapping in Indonesia and Kenya, she teaches at NYU and MIT, where she presents a range of topics, from multidimensional data visualization to digital fabrication and its cultural underpinnings. She is also active as an organizer-advocate in the Working Families Party and FUREE (Families United for Racial and Economic Equality). Arlene Ducao holds degrees from UMD, SVA, and MIT.


杜卡阿琳也曾因为她在印度尼西亚和肯尼亚的卫星测图方面的突出贡献而获得全球最大艺术节西南偏南SXSW颁发的Winburne Community Service Award奖项,她在纽约大学和麻省理工学院执教,所教授的内容非常广泛,包括多维视觉可视化、数字制造以及其背后的文化基础。杜卡阿琳也是种族平等和经济平等的积极倡导者和相关活动的组织者。她拥有马里兰大学、纽约视觉艺术学院和麻省理工学院的的学位证书。
