NEXT – Technology, Manufacturing and Biotech Event – 15 November 2018

Greetings, fellow astrophiles!

This in from the TACNY email list.

NEXT – Technology, Manufacturing and Biotech

“Now in its fifth year, the NEXT conference focuses on innovation in technology, manufacturing, and biotech. The event brings together fast-track companies, managers, researchers, medical professionals, investors, and entrepreneurs to meet and learn from each other and from global thought leaders and industry experts. The dynamic full-day program boasts two world-class keynotes, as well as interactive educational workshops in three concurrent tracks. A Technology Showcase features breakthrough science from university and industry research teams and displays from businesses developing cutting-edge products, giving attendees a unique first-hand look at NEXT generation opportunities, tools, and discoveries.”

Sweet Science Series – Environmental Data: New Mediums For Visualization

Thursday, 8 November 2018, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.; Refreshments at 5:30 p.m.

Milton J Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology – Syracuse, NY

As a consequence of inexpensive sensors, ubiquitous tracking devices, and abundant digital storage, the cities and buildings we live in have never been more monitored or recorded. Various government entities and private interests have created a tremendous database of recorded energy use, climactic conditions, and even social interaction. Despite the data’s availability, it remains comprehensively inaccessible. How can new emerging mixed reality (MR) technologies- including digital projection, virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR) – relate data back to its physical and spatial conditions and transform data into engaging information? This presentation will describe a range of projects that model quantified data within buildings and cities as immersive or interactive environments. The presentation will include a VR demonstration and conclude with speculation on how this process might be used in the future to inform healthy, intelligent and resilient built environments.

People interested in learning more about data visualization are invited to attend the free Sweet Science Series presentation on Thursday, November 8th, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Space Gallery meeting room at the Museum of Science & Technology in Syracuse’s Armory Square. Admission is free and open to the public. Light snacks will be served at 5:30pm. Walk-ins are welcome, but we ask that people RSVP by clicking here by November 6th, 2018.
