LONDRES, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Cérémonie  de  remise  des  prix  et  présentation  des  trophées  des  designers

dans le cadre de l'exposition INTERNI - FEEDING NEW IDEAS FOR THE CITY

Hall d'exposition, Università degli Studi di Milano, via Festa del Perdono 7

Lundi 7 avril à 18 h

En  présence  du  jury 

Shay Alkalay (Raw Edges), Giulio Cappellini (directeur artistique chez Cappellini), Giorgio Galli (directeur du design chez Timex Group), Sofia Lagerkvist (Front), Jay Osgerby (Barber & Osgerby).

Candidats  présélectionnés

Un jury international composé de représentants de premier plan de l'industrie du design a retenu 10 candidats d'une longue liste de 40 afin de rivaliser pour le prix Jeune pousse de BE OPEN, soit le plus récent prix international en design. Étant donné que ce projet vise à promouvoir et à intégrer les jeunes designers dans le monde du travail, le jury est composé de professionnels de l'industrie qui peuvent aider les lauréats à faire avancer leur carrière.

Ce prix s'inscrit dans la plateforme Inside the Academy de BE OPEN, une approche novatrice appuyant la créativité dans l'éducation allant des études à la pratique professionnelle. Le prix consiste en une bourse d'un an d'une valeur de 24 000 € couvrant les frais de subsistance quotidiens du designer et l'aidant à avancer dans son travail dans les premières phases critiques de sa carrière.

Décrit comme un « incubateur de jeunes talents » cherchant à dénicher des jeunes diplômés en design qui font les premiers pas dans leur carrière, ce prix permettra au lauréat de continuer à travailler à son rythme, d'expérimenter avec des projets pratiques et conceptuels et de discuter ses idées de production avec des contacts clés fournis par la communauté BE OPEN, notamment des fabricants, des laboratoires, des professionnels de l'industrie, des experts et des mentors.

Cette année, les prix sont axés sur le design industriel et l'amélioration de la fonctionnalité et de la forme. Trois lauréats seront choisis : le lauréat du grand prix Yelena Baturina sera choisi par le fondateur de BE OPEN parmi les candidats présélectionnés, alors que le prix Choix du public sera décerné en fonction des votes en ligne du public exprimés avant le 17 mai 2014 à la page https://www.facebook.com/beopenawards. Trois des membres du jury créeront des trophées exclusifs conçus autour du thème de l'œuf pour symboliser l'éclosion de nouveaux talents. Le grand prix sera un manche en bronze sous forme d'œuf conçu par Barber & Osgerby ; le trophée Yelena Baturina pour femmes sera conçu par Front sous la forme d'un œuf de dinosaure ; et le prix Choix du public conçu par Raw Edges sera un trophée ironique sous forme de coquetier contenant un œuf en bois.

Les travaux des designers présélectionnés ainsi que des séquences biographiques seront révélés par le biais d'une installation ingénieuse d'environ une centaine de cages à oiseaux de diverses formes et tailles, des anciennes comme des nouvelles, qui seront suspendues dans le cloître de l'Università degli Studi di Milano. La moitié de ces cages contiendront des écrans mettant en vedette les designers et leurs créations. Ce format de cage à oiseaux est utilisé pour souligner le contraste entre la liberté de créativité et les limites du monde réel. Les portes des cages seront laissées ouvertes pour démontrer que le prix Jeune Pousse de BE OPEN contribue à libérer la créativité, tout en éliminant certaines des entraves de la vie quotidienne des jeunes designers prometteurs.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profes...
Fortunately, meaningful and tangible business cases for IoT are plentiful in a broad array of industries and vertical markets. These range from simple warranty cost reduction for capital intensive assets, to minimizing downtime for vital business tools, to creating feedback loops improving product design, to improving and enhancing enterprise customer experiences. All of these business cases, which will be briefly explored in this session, hinge on cost effectively extracting relevant data from ...
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades. So what has changed? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Prasanna Sivaramakrishnan, Solutions Architect at Red Hat, discussed the impact commodity hardware, ubiquitous connectivity, and innovations in open source software are having on the connected universe of people, thi...
WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
