Last week I enjoyed participating in Computing and the Cloud – a day of brainstorming – so that Knowledge Transfer Networks justify their existence, by picking our brains to pass on an overview to those who sit nearer to the honeypot.
On the first occasion, I met The Islington Twins who encouraged me to make a pitch about my innovation and I said something like:
Hello, I’d like you to fast forward to 1-2 years, when you take your favourite online device for looking through my “software lenses”. You’ll choose:
- an objective for
- selecting images, complex data or time series
- a focus to choose the scale
- nano and below, human or astronomical.
And then you pick a domain from a drop-down menu and begin to vary the parameters with which to examine in more detail what you are already familiar with.
Only you know the significance of the quantifications that my software will offer you.
Only you will be able to name the quality that now becomes a ‘measuring unit’ with quantifications.
But not only you will benefit from your experience: by feeding your familiarity into the system, others who are less skilled can learn from this new ‘smart web portal’ later.
See you in the cloud!
