New lighting best practices, from a design-research collaboration

Evidence-Based Lighting Design explores how light affects human health and well-being, and provides real-world examples and guidelines for designers. Written by internationally recognized and award-winning lighting experts, the book combines design theory and scientific research to establish best practices for lighting design. Contributions by prominent medical and scientific researchers provide real evidence validating the long-held assumption that design impacts the users of the space, and the book expands upon the research to provide an accessible, easy-to-read guide to the theory, concepts, and practice of evidence-based lighting design.

Evidence-based design is a research-based approach designers use to understand how the built environment influences behavior. When applied to lighting, the evidence was made clear when the American Medical Association announced that lighting does indeed affect human well-being. The recent integration of scientific evidence into lighting design has become a top priority for lighting designers, and Evidence-Based Lighting Design is the first comprehensive reference in the field. The book discusses the results of research, and offers advice on incorporating these new guidelines into the design process. Topics include:

  • The physics of light and human vision
  • Circadian rhythms, and the human need for light
  • The effect of light on human health
  • Design guidelines vetted by medical and research experts

The book includes case studies that illustrate the real-life impact of lighting, exploring aspects like artificial environments, clinical environments, and the effects of light on plants and animals. The guidelines that result represent the collaboration of designers and researchers, making Evidence-Based Lighting Design the most complete field resource on the market.


The Owl In Daylight

Philip K. Dick is the author of science-fiction classics that have inspired movies like Bladerunner, Total Recall and Minority Report. Sadly, Dick did not live enough to see how his suspicion of reality and his search for the human essence in an artificial world became mainstream concerns and pop culture icons. Based on a careful review of biographical materials and his personal acquaintance with some of Dick's closest friends and relatives, Salvador Bayarri has written Dick's life story in a screenplay format, preserving the richness of the writer's character as his charming humor and foretelling genius mixes with a personal struggle to make sense of his own visions, the human nature and the meaning of the universe. "The Owl in Daylight" was the working title for Dick's last book project, in which he planned to create a character much like himself: a visionary artist who discovers that his work improves as an alien intelligence takes control of it. Blinded by his unique perception -like a night owl in daylight- the artist has to make the Faustian choice between reaching for the ultimate secrets of the universe and die in glorious flames, or trying to save the remains of a normal life. The screenplay follows the key episodes that propelled Dick to his prophetic visions, from the death of his twin sister shortly after birth, through the paranoia of the 50s and the psychedelic culture of the 60s, towards his final and most dramatic visions of love, good and evil.


Light And Shade

"Form," writes the author, "is developed by means of light and shade; without these every object would appear flat." Originally published in the mid-nineteenth century, this classic approach to three-dimensional drawing was the first book to provide art students with instructions for correctly illustrating perspective outlines of various objects.
An art historian noted for her authoritative reference works, Merrifield clearly demonstrates the principles of light and shade by revealing the effects of common daylight, sunshine, and candle or artificial light on geometrical solids. Her simple explanations are accompanied by illustrations of cubes, prisms, pyramids, cylinders, spheres, ovals, and cones.
As useful and practical today as it was when first published well over a century ago,Light and Shade provides beginning and advanced art students with valuable insights into effective drawing and sketching.


Artificial Intelligence And Literary Creativity

Is human creativity a wall that AI can never scale? Many people are happy to admit that experts in many domains can be matched by either knowledge-based or sub-symbolic systems, but even some AI researchers harbor the hope that when it comes to feats of sheer brilliance, mind over machine is an unalterable fact. In this book, the authors push AI toward a time when machines can autonomously write not just humdrum stories of the sort seen for years in AI, but first-rate fiction thought to be the province of human genius. It reports on five years of effort devoted to building a story generator--the BRUTUS.1 system.
This book was written for three general reasons. The first theoretical reason for investing time, money, and talent in the quest for a truly creative machine is to work toward an answer to the question of whether we ourselves are machines. The second theoretical reason is to silence those who believe that logic is forever closed off from the emotional world of creativity. The practical rationale for this endeavor, and the third reason, is that machines able to work alongside humans in arenas calling for creativity will have incalculable worth.


Organic Light-emitting Transistors

Provides an overview of the developments and applications of Organic Light Emitting Transistors (OLETs) science and technology

This book discusses the scientific fundamentals and key technological features of Organic Light Emitting Transistors (OLETs) by putting them in the context of organic electronics and photonics. The characteristics of OLETs are benchmarked to those of OLEDs for applications in Flat Panel Displays and sensing technology. The authors provide a comparative analysis between OLED and OLET devices in order to highlight the fundamental differences in terms of device architecture and working principles, and to point out the enabling nature of OLETs for truly flexible displays. The book then explores the principles of OLET devices, their basic optoelectronic characteristics, the properties of currently available materials, processing and fabrication techniques, and the different approaches adopted to structure the active channel and to control organic and hybrid interfaces.

  • Examines the photonic properties of OLETs, focusing on the external quantum efficiency, the brightness, the light outcoupling, and emission directionality
  • Analyzes the charge transport and photophysical properties of OLET, emphasizing the excitonic properties and spatial emitting characteristics
  • Reviews the key building blocks of the OLET devices and their role in determining the device’s performance
  • Discusses the challenges in OLET design, namely color gamut, power efficiency, and reliability
  • Presents key applications of OLET devices and their potential impact on display technology and sensing
Organic Light-Emitting Transistors: Towards the Next Generation Display Technology serves as a reference for researchers, technology developers and end-users to have a broad view of the distinguishing features of the OLET technology and to profile the impact on the display and sensing markets.
