هواري شار ستريت فيو

انتهى مركز   CIDA للبحوث والاستشارات والتدريب، التابع للجامعة الأميركية في العراق – السليمانية من وضع النموذج الأولي لمشروع 360 Street view لأول مرة في هواري شار، ثاني أكبر حديقة في الشرق الأوسط والتي تقع في السليمانية - العراق. أطلقت شركة  Google في عام 2007  ميزة جديدة ل Google Maps و Google Earth تسمى Google Street View  . تتيح ميزة Google Street View للمستخدمين التجول في المدن والبلدات على أجهزة الكمبيوتر الشخصية والهواتف الذكية كما لو كانوا في المدينة نفسها. على مدى العقد الماضي، قامت شركة Google بتوسيع النظام الأساسي ليشمل المزيد من المناطق في العالم مما يجعل هذه الميزة ميزة للتحقق من مواقع المدن ومشاهد الاهتمام أثناء التخطيط لقضاء عطلة، أو رحلة عمل، أو مجرد زيارة. ومع ذلك، لم يتم إنشاء هذه الخدمة للعراق. مع 200 صورة فردية و 100 ساعة من العمل ومسافة تقارب 1000 متر، يأمل متطوعو مركز CIDA للبحوث والاستشارات والتدريب، التابع للجامعة الأميركية في العراق – السليمانية، في إنهاء الظلال على شوارع السليمانية وفي نهاية المطاف في جميع أنحاء العراق. الغرض من المشروع هو تغطية المدن الكبرى في العراق بدءا من السليمانية، وذلك لإظهار الطبيعة الحقيقية للعراق وجذب السياح وتبادل الثقافات. يقول الدكتور هيمن لطيف - المدير المؤسس لمركز CIDA: إن هواري شار ستريت فيو هو بداية رحلة طويلة ومبتكرة وطموحة لاستخدام أحدث ما توصلت إليه التكنولوجيا من أجل بناء أسس مدينة ذكية. وحسب فريق العمل أن اختيار حديقة  هواري شار لتنفيذ المشروع كان بسبب المعالم وبيئة التحكم فيها، وكانت فكرة المشروع في البداية هي تغطية المدينة بأكملها، لكن مع موارد وأدوات محدودة قرر أعضاء  المركز القيام بإنشاء هذا النموذج الأولي. هذا ويتألف الفريق الذي يقف وراء هواري شار ستريت فيو من ثلاثة أعضاء متطوعين هم السيدة شيني محدين، والسيد برزي بهزاد، والدكتور هيمن لطيف. يمكن للمستخدمين الآن زيارة هواري شار  فعليًا باستخدام هذا الرابط: https://goo.gl/zCJHMi

Hawari Shar Street View: A Prototype With Many Possibilities

The Center for Informatics and Data Analytics (CIDA), a research, consultancy and training center at the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS), finalized its prototype of the very first 360 street view project of Hawary Shar, the second largest park in the Middle East that is located in Sulaimani, Iraq. In 2007, Google launched a new feature to their Google Maps and Google Earth services called Google Street View. Google Street View enables users to wander around cities and towns on their PCs and smartphones as if they are in the town itself. Over the last decade, Google expanded the platform covering more areas of the world, making this feature the norm to check city sites and scenes of interest while planning for a vacation, a business trip, or just a visit. Yet, this service has not been created for Iraq. With 200 individual photos, 100 hours of work, and a distance of nearly a 1000 meters, CIDA volunteers hope to end the shade over Sulaimani’s streets and eventually the whole country of Iraq. The purpose of the project is to cover major cities in Iraq, starting from Sulaimani, to show the true nature of Iraq and put a stop to the stereotypical “war zone” and “unsafe” claims to attract tourists and exchange of cultures. Dr. Hemin Latif, Founding Director of CIDA states “Hawari Shar Street View is the beginning of a long, creative, and ambitious journey of using the latest in technology advancement to build the foundations of a smart city”. The team thought of Hawary Shar as its target for the project implementation due to flora of the landmark and its controlled environment. The idea of the project, initially, was to cover the whole city using an automotive method, similar to Google’s approach. However, with limited resources and tools, CIDA members took the conventional way of using a 360 degree camera and a tripod to cover the whole distance and create the prototype. Google allows users with a Gmail account to post 360 degree photos on Google Maps. However, viewers cannot move from one spot to another. Stitching individual photos with specialized software is required to enable the same feature Google intended to do with Street View. Therefore, there is a difference between static 360 panoramic images and a Street View feature. The team behind Hawari Shar Street View is composed of three volunteer members who are Ms. Sheneh Muheddin, Mr. Berzy Bahzad, and Dr. Hemin Latif.

Chra Hussain wins Inaugural Blake and Bailey Family Endowed Scholarship

Chra, who currently works part-time as a software developer at Fastline company in Sulaimani, has an interest for programming and artificial intelligence, “I love doing programming, even though most people say it’s not a suitable job for girls, but I enjoy coding.” She said. “I’m going to use this scholarship for further education. I plan on taking a robotics class next semester,” she continues, “robotics will be a good way for me to learn more about artificial intelligence as well as putting my programming knowledge into practice.” Chra has a few classes left to complete her Information Technology studies at AUIS. The scholarship fund will cover those remaining classes. Therefore, she plans to spend the rest of the scholarship fund on IT certifications. Being a senior student, she is looking into acquiring new skills to help her career after graduation. “Many jobs now require certifications, these will also help me in graduate school.” AUIS taught me to make my decisions based on reason. When Chra first joined the university, she felt overwhelmed by how challenging some of her classes were, “I wanted to give up, but I am glad I didn’t.” She said. As a senior, she is grateful for the education she received.“What I like about AUIS is its Liberal Arts program, because in order to be an educated person, you don’t only need the technical skills. You need to be able to make decisions in your social and work life. AUIS taught me to make my decisions based on reason.” The Blake and Bailey Family Endowed Scholarship Fund at the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani is aimed to support the education of eligible students at AUIS. The Scholarship is open to students of all undergraduate programs, and is awarded on an objective and non-discriminatory basis depending on demonstrated financial need and academic merit. The $1,000 scholarship will be used to cover tuition fees, housing, and course-related expenses. The 2017 Inaugural scholarship was awarded to Chra Hussain, an Information Technology senior student at AUIS.

IT Students Visit AsiaHawala

Last week, Information Technology students taking ITE202 (IT Systems) and ITE301 (Data Communications and Networks), paid a visit to AsiaHawala. The visit was to help them get advice on the IT courses they should focus on, in order to work in similar environments to those AsiaHawala. The event was organized by the IT Department. Dr. Atheer Matroud managed the connection with one of the IT graduates working there, Karzan Fadhil. Karzan presented the tools that they are using to operate all the e-wallet transactions. The good news is, AUIS teaches 80% of the tools and systems AsiaHawala uses. And they admitted that AUIS prepares good and professional candidates. The field trips were managed by AUIS IT Lab Assistant, Berzy Bahzad.
