I liked the video that won the competition at the NAE.
Great changes are coming; I can hear the engine nearing… And this train is something, that we cannot be interfering. So I'm thinking B I G ‘cause we know we see a global growth of us and we need a - new approach, not talkin' [about] who you should vote - for - there's a grand challenge that I think you should note.
Making our cities more sustainable is not unattainable... For instance, since things can sense things why aren't we consenting to put sensors in things and thus preventing – destruction. [Instead] Construct and renew. Wouldn’t it be cool if our buildings and bridges had nervous systems like we do??
Now stay with me…
Let’s get a team of EE’s to design the piezoelectric [sensors] to detect when the crack creeps, the data speaks and we collect it. Send it back to the CS brains and let them see, just how bad it is with analysis in FFT. Then bring the Structural in to near [Engineer] your puzzle, and take the insight and enlighten us on if the bridge is really in trouble. And if it is, as they are, then we can fix it and avoid the loss citizens. Makin’ sure our structures stay grounded – cross discipline.
But that’s just one example of how to make our infrastructure more intelligent. Optimizing our water supply, decentralizing our power grid, diversifying our energy sources – it’s all relevant. So I’ve learned that I do need a high urban IQ with such an influx of cultures and people like you - and I - am so excited about the future... I’m not into the fearing… Great changes are coming… I can hear the…
