Rose Gilroy (Professor of Ageing, Policy & Planning, Newcastle University): Making waves: New housing templates for a changing world

The Future Homes Alliance is an emerging Community Interest Company that draws on two years of partnership commitment from stakeholders in Newcastle University, Newcastle City Council, Ryder Architecture, Karbon Homes, Zero Carbon Futures, Innovation Super Network, Sustainable Communities Initiative and Newcastle Elders Council. Working under the leadership of Professor Rose Gilroy, Newcastle University, the FHA is developing housing designs that make meaningful responses to real lives and demographic shift fused with deep green responses to sustainability through a fabric first and renewables approach, both informed by the opportunities offered by digital innovation.

Din-Houn Lau (Lecturer in Statistics, Imperial College London): Data-centric engineering: A synthesis of statistics and engineering

This presentation will introduce the notion of data-centric engineering, a new programme at the Alan Turing Institute, funded by the Lloyds Register Foundation. Data-centric engineering (DCE) is a synthesis of approaches to studying physical engineering assets which leverages mathematical physics-based models which are updated and refined based on measured data from the actual physical asset in operation and statistical models, combining physical prior knowledge with empirical data. 

Din-Houn will present the ideas behind DCE by exploring data accrued through a sensor network installed in a railway bridge during its construction. He will highlight features of the data, describe ideas of embedding physics-based models into statistical models and propose how these models can be used to reason about structural health monitoring and construction of future instrumented infrastructure.

J Fergus Nicol (Professor at Cass School of Art, Architecture & Design & Co-Director of LEARN): Clarifying the definition of comfortable temperatures in buildings

The provision of good indoor environment in a building plays a large part in the comfort and efficiency of the occupants and can have a big impact on the energy used by the building the physical construction of the buildings and the purpose and attitude of the occupants and the influence of climate all affect how people perceive conditions indoors.  Occupants responses are influenced by their experience of the building.  The way in which these problems are approached in the analysis of field results will be outlined in our presentation
