      Mohamed, Abeer Samy Yousef; No Collaboration; NA; NA; NA; Architecture; NA; Mohamed, Abeer Samy Yousef (Springer, 2024-01)
      mart Urbanism must promote sustainability and Livability to rescue mother earth. 3D printing-based building technology is a new construction technique that began with the advent of the 3D printer in urban planning, especially in smart cities. Contour Crafting, one of the most current technologies, is a promising procedure that has the potential to revolutionize the building sector soon. This technology offers various advantages, including cost and time savings, less environmental damage, and fewer injuries and fatalities on construction sites. The application of BIM in the field of 3D printing is still limited as well related research, while BIM has reached an excellent achievement in the normal structure processes for many years. The new integration methodology this study promote is a creative strategic planning guidelines to identify the hierarchical work-flow steps for applying BIM (Building Information Modeling) with 3D printing building technology to enhance Smart Urban Planning and help achieve city livability as a new promising integration in city planning and construction field as well. This integration will improve energy efficiency, design, cost reduction, structure isolation, and, most importantly, increase city sustainability by aligning to Livability. The proposed new framework visioning is an essential part of smart Urbanism to achieve City Livability.

    • Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging

      Subasi, Abdulhamit; External Collaboration; Artificial Intelligence & Cyber Security Lab; 0; 0; Computer Science; 0; Subasi, Abdulhamit (Academic Press, 2023-01-20)
      Artificial intelligence (AI) plays an important role in the field of medical image analysis, including computer-aided diagnosis, image-guided therapy, image registration, image segmentation, image annotation, image fusion, and retrieval of image databases. With advances in medical imaging, new imaging methods and techniques are needed in the field of medical imaging, such as cone-beam/multi-slice CT, MRI, positron emission tomography (PET)/CT, 3D ultrasound imaging, diffuse optical tomography, and electrical impedance tomography, as well as new AI algorithms/applications. To provide adequate results, single-sample evidence given by the patient’s imaging data is often not appropriate. It is usually difficult to derive analytical solutions or simple equations to describe objects such as lesions and anatomy in medical images, due to wide variations and complexity. Tasks in medical image analysis therefore require learning from examples for correct image recognition (IR) and prior knowledge. This book offers advanced or up-to-date medical image analysis methods through the use of algorithms/techniques for AI, machine learning (ML), and IR. A picture or image is worth a thousand words, indicating that, for example, IR may play a critical role in medical imaging and diagnostics. Data/information can be learned through AI, IR, and ML in the form of an image, that is, a collection of pixels, as it is impossible to recruit experts for big data.

Such a project needs to be thoroughly researched in all of its facets and all requirements must be carefully considered. The creation of an unique project in Saudi Arabia will start with this research. According to the Tourism Vision 2030, it will support in enhancing national tourism.
    • Harmony Haven Music Academy

      Refaat, Ahmed Mohamed; Dowaydari, Basma; Architecture
      Process streamlining, improved design communication, and user experience simulation are all goals of architects. As a result, the knowledge-based society in architecture encourages experimentation and creativity while simultaneously promoting the efficient and ecological production of physical environments. The architectural idea for a music academy is also investigated in this abstract as a case study within the context of a knowledge-based society. The Music Academy is an example of how architecture can adopt the ideas of a knowledge-based society by embracing technology, interdisciplinary cooperation, and creative design approaches. This project emphasizes the value of developing areas that encourage creativity, offer excellent acoustics, and aid budding musicians' educational journeys. In the end, the knowledge-based society in architecture brings new chances and difficulties to those working in the field. In order to accept this paradigm shift, architects must develop a flexible and collaborative attitude, cross conventional barriers, and recognize the value of knowledge-sharing and creativity. Only by undergoing these changes will the architectural profession be able to continue to progress and better society

      Ibrahim, Asmaa; Mohamed, Mady; Visvizi, Anna; Ghamri, Lamia; Mohammed, Mohammed F. M.; External Collaboration; NA; 1; 9; Architecture; et al. (Springer Nature, 2023-06-29)
      Against a backdrop of environmental and societal concerns, best captured by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this book brings together the leading voices on Mosque architecture to make a case for its role as a purveyor of culture, heritage, and sustainability in the modern world. The Mosque, as an institution, continues to serve as the epicenter of spiritual, moral, and cultural life in Muslim societies. Recognizing that the popular understanding of Muslim culture and archetypes is, at best, minimal among the broader public worldwide, this book has two objectives: ie,(i) to explore Masjid architecture as a carrier of culture, heritage, and the sustainability of Muslim communities; and (ii) to offer a bias-free introduction to the intricacies of Muslim architecture, culture, and heritage today. The papers featured in this collection were presented at the 5th Memaryat International Conference (MIC), held at Effat University, Jeddah. The MIC’s objective is to build bridges between research communities engaged with diverse aspects of science, technology, and innovation, seen as the key levers for attaining the SDGs.
    • Smart energy solutions: two-way energy information exchange between utility companies, consumers, and prosumers

      Kashef, M, O, A Troisi, Visvisi; External Collaboration; NA; 0; 0; Architecture; 0; Kashef, Mohamad (Routledge, 2023-06-01)
      Smart cities are gradually but surely developing the infrastructure and system architecture required for integrating public and private energy services. With the mounting evidence that fossil fuels are detrimental to the environment, it is imperative to integrate renewable energy sources with existing utility infrastructure. The monopoly of utility companies on energy production and distribution is being eroded due to the proliferation of renewable energy sources (RES) from private prosumers (producers/consumers). Prosumers have developed some capacity to generate a power surplus that exceeds their immediate needs. Individuals and group prosumers have created energy communities with infrastructural and technological ecosystems that allow them to generate, control, monitor, and trade power over private and public utility networks. Multi-layered wireless mesh networks (WMN) that connect multi-sensor modules (MSM) and big data analytics servers with built in AI capacity are facilitating the development of smart energy solutions. They will revolutionize the energy sector and reconfigure the process of energy production, distribution, and information sharing among individuals, communities, and existing utility companies. Considering the fact that (i) the pace of urbanization increases, (ii) energy demand in (smart) urban spaces grows, and (iii) prosumers and, so energy communities, play an ever more important role also in the (smart) city context space, the objective of this chapter is to review the existing smart energy systems and the prospect of their application in the smart city space. The notions of energy supply and demand for energy and the role of energy communities will form the thread of the discussion in this chapter.

    • Mosque Architecture: A Transdisciplinary Debate

      Mohammed, Mohammed F. M.; Mohamed, Mady; Ibrahim, Asmaa; Visvizi, Anna; Ghamri, Lamiaa F.; External Collaboration; Urban Design Lab; 0; Ghamri, Lamiaa F.; Architecture; et al. (SPRINGER, 2023-06-29)
      The Mosque (Masjid) is the center of the spiritual, moral, and cultural life in Muslim societies. Having retained its key spatial, visual, and physical characteristics over the centuries, the Mosque has also been a subject of a sublime transformation. While the key features, and most profoundly, the symbolism of the Mosque remain intact, the Mosque design and architecture follow and adapt to the evolution of the Muslim society and its context. The Mosque, and so the Mosque architecture, serve as evidence of resilience and sustainability inherent in Muslim culture and heritage. This chapter offers an insight into the book’s content and objectives, and hence should serve as a useful guide for anyone interested in exploring the Mosque architecture as a carrier of culture, heritage, and sustainability of Muslim communities; and seeking a bias-free introduction to the intricacies of the Muslim culture.
