This paper describes a teaching methodology whereby students can gain practical experience of ethical decision-making in the engineering design process. We first argue for the necessity to teach a 'practical' understanding of ethical issues in engineering education along with the usual theoretical or hypothetical approaches. We then show how this practical(More)
As computing increasingly deals with our lived experiences in complex social ecologies such as urban and public environments, designers are challenged with new methods and ways of appropriating computation and experience around public creativity. Public creativity deals with interactions in public interactive installations that are not task-based queries of(More)
The topography of antibody binding sites has been classified into five types that evoke familiar geomorphic features of the Earth. The 229 antibody crystal structures from the Protein Data Bank were analyzed and classified into these classes. Relationships to previous topography classifications by Rees et al., who defined three classes, and Thornton et al.,(More)
—Physically-aware N-detect (PAN-detect) test improves defect coverage by exploiting defect locality. This paper presents physically-aware test selection (PATS) to efficiently generate PAN-detect tests for large industrial designs. Compared to traditional N-detect test, the quality resulting from PAN-detect is enhanced without any increase in test execution(More)
Recent trends in the integration of process, device and circuit modeling tools and the current rapid emergence of UNIX® based computing environments of networked workstations and compute engines makes possible user-friendly, task-based CAD systems for technology optimization, characterization and cell design. The paper discusses these trends and identifies(More)
This paper describes a distributed architecture for the flexible interconnection of heterogeneous networks with a number of mini- and micro computers, in a research environment. The interconnected networks include the DARPA Internet, which uses the DoD protocols, and the X25-based networks PSS and SERCNET. The approach described here distributes the(More)
