Congratulations on (early) retirement of Prof Terry Moore of @UniofNottingham, president of @at_RIN, the most decorated scientist in the area of Navigation, an inspirational mentor & truly supportive colleague/boss/friend Not even one decision I made without having consulted him! https://t.co/UnR2bdoOqf
@AnahidBasiri 3) No one has proved that a GPS-like constellation can be used in low earth orbit – that is a major technical risk that will involve many years of technical development. It may need completely new signals concepts, and re-designed user equipment.
@AnahidBasiri Here's why: 1) OneWeb satellites operate in ‘Low Earth Orbit’ (LEO), unlike all other satellite navigation space vehicles. So they move a lot faster across the sky compared to GPS. That makes it much harder for a user device to maintain lock on the signals.
Here are 5 main reasons why OneWeb satellites wont function as @GOVUK expect, according to @MarekZiebart (listen to a Prof of space geodesy who consulted @EU_GNSS & @NASA) PS. I'm pro UK GNSS/regional sys for the same reason as US/Russia/EU/China/Japan/India have but not OneWeb https://t.co/82eH1663U4
This is why we need to work on natural language processing! https://t.co/mkC2mu5WEi
“Women and minority researchers have more original ideas, but white men are rewarded faster”. Is this also true for researchers in the UK? Would be interesting to investigate. https://t.co/6EMGsA82Ce
If you've missed @turinginst Urban Analytics event, slides are here: https://t.co/XZOPIP1zcW I talked about "valuable" #missingnes & errors. eg if "prefer not to say" income/ethnicity means wealthy/non-white? or if #Bluetooth & WiFi signal attenuation indicates walls/occupancy https://t.co/qIkS4j2ENG https://t.co/KGdD7AbNTj
NHS contact-tracing app cannot be used in crowded tower blocks, ministers warned https://t.co/tD8Ewx9HVr
Yes @Independent I warned it here: https://t.co/oiXsDApA3K & https://t.co/09FfvTyW1n #Bluetooth signals get weak but can go through to the walls/windows, so there'll be false positives (unless integrated with indoor maps & our models!). even Human bodies/handgrip changes RSS https://t.co/eLWgr9k6tQ
Excited to give a talk @UCL_ICCS seminar on "extracting #3D maps of #cities (building's height/material or indoor furniture) from #GPS blockage or weak #WiFi! More on https://t.co/6sNyZasUhp PS. bio update: still #ukriflf but Prof Ana Basiri of @UofGlasgow @UofGSciEng @UofGGES https://t.co/YqEtzmJoGP
Join a group of experts today & till June 11, to learn on Networked Complexity:The Case of #Covid_19 @ucl @CNRSL @CornellMAE @lborouniversity @AaltoUniversity @C3UNAM @ElsaArcaute @MeldaSalhab @ComplexityWise @AnahidBasiri @AUB_Lebanon Registration https://t.co/sDs9mDvr6A https://t.co/qVH7qK9HbW
Check out this @AUB_Lebanon seminar series starting today featuring several @CASAUCL researchers. We will be discussing COVID-19 from the perspectives of #ComplexityScience, #DataScience, #Epidemiology, #CrowdSourcing, #RemoteSensing, etc. https://t.co/1dsS0i7P5Y
