    Thank you for helping make Christmas 2013 a smashing success! We made a difference for nearly 400 deserving Oakland children. A number of you went the extra mile “adopting” families, sorting gifts, handing out toys, etc. You know who you are. Thank you! Help us make a difference in 2014! Learn more at www.oakluv.org

    • Alan Smith believes our ability to collect and analyse big data has improved since the financial crisis


      from Cambridge Judge Business School Added 43 0 0

      The Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies 5th Annual Risk Summit "The Pulse of Risk: From Big Data to Business Value" took place on 23-24 June 2014, and explored the implications of "Big Data" and its opportunities and risks to businesses. The democratisation of information access has provided enormous opportunities for individuals and organisations while creating growing debate on its consequential use. Big data holds potential for research, innovation and productivity, while posing complex questions of ownership, value, aggregation, and the broader benefits to society. Alan Smith is the Global Head of Risk Strategy and Chief of Staff, Global Risk, HSBC.

        • Alan Smith - Game and Simulator Physics for Developers, Gamers and Petrol Heads


          from NDC Conferences Added 365 7 0

          This entertaining and demo intensive session will lift thelid on the black art of physics simulation in computer games. The samplescenario will be the re-writing and testing of the physics engine in a sample3D driving game. Starting with the basics of force, mass and acceleration thesimulation will be gradually enhanced to include lateral and vertical g-force,tire slip, down-force and collision detection. The addition of a drag reductionsystem (DRS) and kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) will round off the demo,and add a strategic element to the game. The techniques demonstrated can easily be applied to 2D and3D games on any technology to improve the responsiveness, feel and overallplayability of the game. The trade-off between the purity of the simulation andthe all-out fun of arcade style games will be discussed and demonstrated, alongwith plenty of tips for developing, testing and fine-tuning the physics model. Whether you are learning to develop 3D games in Unity,MonoGame or another technology, interested in learning more about what makesgaming physics simulations tick, or just want to kick back and see how much funyou can have with C#, this session will have something for you. You will alsohave the chance to install and play the game, test the physics implementationfor real time and compete with other attendees for the best lap time!

            • Mothers' Waiting Hostel


              from Alan Smith Added 67 0 0

              In countries where there is a poor transport infrastructure many labouring pregnant women can't get to hospital in time. This often results in the death of the unborn child. The mother can suffer from a ruptured uterus, a vesicovaginal fistula (which leads to permanent incontinence) or even death. This waiting hostel is being built by the charity Kisiizi Partners at Kisiizi Hospital in south-west Uganda, so that high risk women can spend the last few weeks of their pregnancy close to the hospital's labour ward. This will lead to improved outcomes for many mothers and their babies.

                • Alan Smith: Grid Computing with 256 Windows Azure Worker Roles & Kinect


                  from NDC Conferences Added 206 0 0

                  Rendering 3D ray-traced animations is a task that requiresmassive compute power. Creating a 256 node render farm that is capable ofproducing high definition high quality 3D animations would cost hundreds ofthousands of dollars, and take months to provision. Creating this environmentin Windows Azure costs around $30 per hour, and takes a few minutes toprovision. In this session the power of Windows Azure Compute will bedemonstrated live on stage, with the creation of a render farm using 256 workerroles to render a 3D animation creating using Windows Kinect, and a text-basedray-tracer. The principles used in the architecture of this solution can beapplied to many other scenarios, and will be covered in detail, along with tipsand advice for creating your own grid computing applications.

                      from Drew Alexander Added 212 3 2

                      Picture Difference had an incredible trip to the Philippines in December! We spent 4 weeks traveling through the islands focusing on photography and getting to know the culture. The trip began in Manila before heading to the Banaue rice terraces. Afterwards we traveled to South Luzon through Legazpi, Tigaon, and Donsol. Several days of island hopping landed us on Sibuyan Island where we spent the last days of our trip. Follow us and let us know what you think!
