CT Perspective summit – ‘Summary Post’

What was the most impressive ?

I was impressed by deep web presentation by ninad in Team 3 because deep web is usually called invisible web or hidden web, are are parts of the World Wide Web which contents are not indexed by standard search engines for any reason. The content is hidden behind HTML forms. It is the worst internet side that recommended not to visit because of the illegal use like hiding an IP or literally everything from small activity like paying somebody to do your homework until hi-criminal activity. I was never know this kind of deep web is ever exist.

What was the scariest technology ?

Many would like to agree that AI is most scary technology. The improvement of the system that could able to create own intelligence or another AI. No one would ever know if it will rule the world with its self-intelligent improvement without limit and knows everything in universe.

Which one (or more) might you imagine working with in your creative practice?

I prefer Multimedia since for me it is like Mother of arts, because I have interest in graphic illustration, animation and visual effects. It works include graphics, audio, video technology and many more interactive aspects in it. You ought to know more than one skills because a design itself is variety from many kind of topic and themes that not  only in art field. For instance, architecture, advertising, psychology, animals and so on.

Group 4 – Multimedia

This is the link of our PPT MULTIMEDIA

 

In class we presenting about the multimedia technology that multimedia is variation and combination of content which includes the media itself, communication, graphics, audios, and videos technology.

I was presenting a topic of Possibilities and opportunities that multimedia offer. Multimedia is used in many kind of field these days regarding to rapidly technology development. Creative industries use multimedia for a variety purposes from fine arts, to entertainment, commercial art, journalism to media and software services.

  1. Commercial uses
    Multimedia could be useful to make an interesting presentation/output design in advertising to get an attention.

  2. Entertainment and Fine arts
    This is the most heavily used of multimedia wsoecially to develop special effects in movies and animatons (VFX & 3D animations, etc). Some video games also use multimedia features such as VR (Virtual Realty) & AR (augmented Reality).

  3. Education
    In education multimedia using a Computer-Based Training course (CBT). Many varieties of field use multimedia as education or simulation such as engineer, mathematical and scientific research and even medical. In education, CBT let the user go through a series of presentation text about a particular topic and associated illustration in various information format.

    Engineering education purposes: simulation of pilot

  4. For medical purposes
    In medical, doctors can get trasined by looking at virtual surgery or they can stimulate how the human body is affected by diseases spread by viruses and bacteria and could develop techniques to prevent it.

In my opinion, Multimedia takes important position in first place because it combine various media such as traditional arts, communications, and digital arts (graphic, audio and video technology) to interact with and assist design industry become more interesting and variant.

Group 1: WEB & THE MEDIA

Technology consist of web and media , which the media usually connect to the web in order to make  a wider connection, for example media social. Nowadays many people use social media, even they try to make money or gain something (popularity) from it. Sometimes the power of technology such as internet could be scary as it is since there are no guaranteed privacy because many people  even saving or store files to internet.

My opinion about this topic is how the matter of personal use of this technology even there will be always a risk of anything. Internet and social media can be used for good or simple thing, to keep contact with friends.

Group 2: MOBILE SOFTWARE

Mobile software is a software which usually used for IT administrator, distribution of applications, etc. For example, Uber, google map was made in mobile software because of efficiency since many people are connecting to internet with mobile hardware.

Same as group 1 that the mobile software are made and without limit of internet connection which could be warning of hacked, no privacy and so on. There is some good of this mobile software that people even creating a design software which could be  accessed in mobile ver (application) and it is so helpful for people who like to have sudden concept, reminder and designing.

Group 3: TECHNOLOGY & MEDIA

This group explained about how the technology is far develop these days, broadcasting, ebook, newspaper, magazines and it interesting because there was a part of presentation about deep web which is something like illegal activity could be done and far more unknown to common.

Group 5: VISUAL LANGUAGE

The notes for this group is how the visual language is related and used towards technology. For instance these days, emoticon is being used to express a sentence in interactive way / media. Technology advancement make an easier way to communicate disability for learning.

Group 6: AI

It always give me an awe of AI works because it is like a brain , a cyber brain which even could created to develop more by itself. This team explain about the development of AI like it applied to machines which have more perfection than human.

Group 7: INTERACTIVE DESIGN

Interactive design become more and more in our live. How it invade us for example with VR and AR to make it interesting and more advance in the future (technology).

CT Perspective week 11 – The Future of Work

This week’s team is my turn for presentation. My work is presenting about one interesting aspect of Future of Work.
The Idea of Basic Income
To start with technologies and internet advancement, the ways of human works will change even it is not reached its peak yet. As physical work, repetitious tasks, and even some aspect of research are into the rise of increasingly intelligent and efficient machines and software.
Many people believe that job growth cannot keep up with the automation these days and keep accelerating. In conclusion people will will having difficulties of finding a job especially general labour. For instance, KIVA robots / drone in amazon ‘s has already make the job more easier in terms of time efficiency since human might takes hour to find, locating or roam for the goods around the warehouse.

The moot was : In the near future,there would be no need for humans in the workplace for we would be replaced by technology.

Many people agree with the moot because the human need technology to make the work easier but not been fully replaced because the machines itself need a maintenance or a supervisor to control them. Secondly, there was a discussion maybe AI could developing or learning themselves to become better and better.

CT week 10 – Interactive Design

The  Purpose of doing this class and method is to help learning how we can interact with other  people such as customer as fast as possible. In class we were given a “GIFT” topic to practice interact and then we illustrate the data we got into phone application.

 

*** 2. How did testing and getting feedback impact your final design?

The testing and data i got is quite important in my opinion because  in order to design a final piece we always need a data we got from customers or what they want by approaching their interest. After that, getting feedback is always a must since it allow us to  build and maintain a communication with others.
