Enhancing our Real World with 3D/4D-printing and Remote-Sensing Imagery
Can a printer save your life? The answer lies in 3D-Bioprinting organs which uses 3D-Printing technology. 3D-Bioprinting is the future for Organ Replacement! It has made its mark in various industries and especially in the healthcare Industry, by revolutionizing the prosthesis and implant markets and dentistry. 4D Printing is an advancement to 3D printing with a fourth dimension of ‘time’ that enables creation of material, which can change itself in the form of differing shape or size. Geographic Object-Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) aims to automatically identify meaningful objects from remote sensing imagery. In domains as varied as military and defense, agriculture, managing natural resources (forest, marine, etc.) and urban studies, it is assisting or replacing human analysts. This talk will argue that, at present, archaeology poses a challenge to these automated techniques. The argument will be illustrated with examples from archaeological investigations at Nalanda, Halebidu and Srirangapatna.
