Ecology-City---Network Platform for Lifestyle of Healthy and Sustainability(I)
While the mass production technology of industrial revolution in the 19th century has satisfied the basic needs of human, and the spatial and temporal transformations brought about by electrical and information technology in the 20th have re-shapen our lives and turns the world into a global village, how to further realize the potential of science and technology so as to meet the human needs of living the Life of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS) has been an important issue in the 21th century. With this aim in mind, our interdisciplinary team wants to explore the lifestyles and the needs of elderly and high-stressed populations in order to realized science and technology for our users』 better quality of lives. Think globally and act locally. In Hsin-Chu, the elderly and high-stressed working populations have grown rapidly along with the decrease of birth rate and the development of high tech industry. These are common in the industrialized countries, Taiwan included. These two populations have been suffering different dis-abled situations. For elderly people, they have been dis-abled by the losses of essential cognitive and body functions due to the aging corporeality. For high-stressed working people, they have been dis-abled by the stress and less active lifestyles due to the temporal and spatial compression caused by the demanding workload. This project will integrate the interdisciplinary teams and expertises of: (1) Humanity and Social Science, including Social science (Humanity and Social Science College, NTHU), Cognition (Cognitive Psychology teams, NYMY and NCU) and Ergonomics (Applied Arts Institute, NCTU); Technology, including Engineering Technology (Electrical and Information Colleges, NCTU and NTHU) and Technology on Architectural Space(Architecture and Urban Design Institute, CCU); Networking (National Center for High-Performance Computing), (2) Industry, including Hsin-Chu Science Park (HCSP) Administration and companies in HCSP, and (3) Hospitals, including Hsin-Chu General Hospital, Ton-Yen General Hospital, and Taipei Veterans General Hospital. We are working together to develop 「Eco-City: Health and Sustainability」 Regional Integration Center for Intelligent Mobile Technology to alleviate their dis-abled situations and realized the LOHAS for elderly and high-stressed users. The substantial aims of this center are: 1. Alleviate the dis-abled situations of the target populations and create the infrastructure for healthy and sustainable lifestyles. 2. Creating an environment for interdisciplinary innovation and construct a flexible and sustainable chain for realizing the innovations. 3. Embody and multiply the benefits and effects of living science and living tech industry. In order to achieve the aims, we will firstly embody the ideas of co-enrichment of human and technoscience for the user-oriented technology to integrate our achievements of interdisciplinary and national projects by facilitating the flow in the chain of knowledge supplies from collaborative teams. Secondly, we will induce user driven open innovation by constructing a sustainable loop for innovation. Finally, construct a 「scenario-oriented interactive demonstration and experience platform」 and 「interactive networking platform」 to create the interdisciplinary communications among industry, government, and educational and research fields. In terms of the interactive demonstration and experience platform, we have an Open-Lab, an Open-House and the outdoor campus space, we will also develop an Open Cargo and a concept car that demonstrate a whole day living scenario, including home, traffic, office, and the exercise and leisure space, for high-stressed and elderly populations. It is worth noticing that our mobile Open Cargo will go to other sites and enable the users to experience our platform in their neighborhood. For the interactive networking platform, Co-life of National Center for High-Performance Computing will be the backbone of this platform for integrating the educational platform, encouraging mechanism, and commercialization model in order to cerate value form an sustainable chain for innovation. With these teams』 contributions, this center will develop in a three-stage model in terms of its user participation and user-driven innovation and value creation. In the first stage, we will engage academics and industry and users to participate in open discussions and concept sharing activities. In the second stage, we will enlarge the benefits and effects of the knowledge chain by including more participants through the mechanism of knowledge sharing and securing their originality. In the third stage, apart from the products, we will create profit through 『pay for service』 and 『sharing mechanism』 to support the operation of this center. Hsin-Chu is the best city to realize our center; the percentage of elders in it population is above the average of our country, and it host the high tech working population of the first science park in Taiwan. Collaborating with the NSC project office and other regional centers, it is believed that this project we are proposing will realize and popularize the model of Eco-City for not only alleviating the target populations』 dis-abled situations, but also enable them to enjoy LOHAS.
