Natural Dyed Crawling Path

The use of synthetic dyes in the textile industry can be harmful to the environment, especially those with chemical structure that is difficult to degrade. Therefore, this study aims to explore the possibilities of using natural mordant (bio mordant) for producing dyes that can be environment-friendly. Using aqueous method to extract the color and 3 methods for mordating, which is pre, simultaneous and post. The materials used in this exploration includes hemp, calico, and various types of cotton, with the natural dye sources coming from avocado skin and pit, dragon fruit skin, mangosteen skin, red cabbage, turmeric, onion skin, spinach, suji leaves, butterfly pea flower and mulberries. Based on the characteristics of natural dye produced, one suitable product is soft toy for babies, with diverse, soft and soothing color. In conclusion, natural dyes are assessed to have a fairly good potential in providing environment-friendly alternative. For more detailed research on this, click here. This product is made by Casey Gunawan, one of UPH’s Product Design student.

Honda Brio for VMOD3

This design was made by Calvin, one of UPH Product Design student. This was a submission for Honda Brio VMOD3, which achieved the top 20 spot. The theme applied here is Rallycross, a unique race with mixed surface in 1 lap, and bracket elimination format. In this race, the car is modified with high-powered engine, upgraded suspension, as well as upgraded body & chassis. To compensate for the huge power, wide wheels are applied, converting the car to a wide body, giving it an aggressive look, with the functional rear wing. Check out more of Calvin's work on his Instagram: @calvinsproject.

‘Consent’: Elemen Hilang dari Penentuan Kekerasan Seksual di Indonesia

Ketika ada yang diperkosa atau mengalami pelecehan seksual, ada orang yang akan bertanya, "Apa baju yang ia pakai?" atau mengatakan "Ah, mungkin dia mancing dari baju sama perlakuannya, diem-diem dia mau." Ada pula tindakan kekerasan yang bahkan tidak dianggap sebagai kekerasan seksual, seperti jika korbannya adalah laki-laki atau kekerasannya terjadi di dalam pernikahan. Selain menetapkan legislasi yang menghukum kekerasan seksual, Swedia juga pernah melakukan riset yang menemukan bahwa 70% dari perempuan yang diperkosa mengalami significant tonic immobility, dan 48% mengalami extreme tonic immobility. Dari pasal-pasal KUHP yang berhubungan dengan kekerasan seksual, yakni dari Pasal 285 hingga 290, faktor-faktor penentu utama adanya kekerasan antara lain kekerasan atau ancaman kekerasan, korban pingsan dan tidak berdaya, korban yang umurnya di bawah 15 tahun atau kalau umurnya tidak jelas, serta jika pelaku dan korban tidak dalam hubungan menikah. Artinya, KUHP ini tidak mengakui bahwa kekerasan seksual dapat terjadi dalam hubungan pernikahan. Secara tersirat, KUHP mengatur bahwa persetujuan hanya tidak bisa diberikan jika ada kekerasan atau ancaman kekerasan, ketidakberdayaan korban, dan bila korban di bawah umur 15. Dalam RUU PKS, kekerasan seksual didefinisikan sebagai "Setiap perbuatan merendahkan, menghina, menyerang, dan perbuatan lainnya terhadap tubuh, hasrat seksual seseorang atau fungsi reproduksi secara paksa bertentangan dengan kehendak seseorang, yang menyebabkan seseorang itu tidak mampu memberikan persetujuan dalam keadaan bebas, karena ketimpangan relasi kuasa atau relasi gender yang berakibat pada penderitaan atau kesengsaraan secara fisik, psikis, seksual, kerugian secara ekonomi, sosial, budaya atau politik." Seperti kasus yang sudah disebut di atas, korban kekerasan seksual secara data bukan hanya karena paksaan secara fisik, namun karena relasi kuasa yang timpang, manipulasi, bujuk rayu, dan lain sebagainya. Di KUHP, tidak dikenal istilah pemerkosaan dalam pernikahan. Meskipun UU Penghapusan Kekerasan Dalam Rumah Tangga mengakui adanya marital rapedi Pasal 8 yang melarang pemaksaan hubungan seksual terhadap orang yang menetap di sebuah rumah tangga, KUHP lebih sering diperhatikan.

The Use of Artificial Intelligence in Weapons According to International Humanitarian Law

One of those includes artificial intelligence which is an increasingly used and developed form of technology born sometime in the 1950s. The term of “intelligence” itself means “the ability to acquire and apply different skills and knowledge to solve a given problem” and the use of “general mental capacity to solve, reason, and learn various situations”. Meanwhile, “AI” can simply be defined as “the theory and development of computer systems to carry out tasks normally requiring human intelligence”. The foundation of AI’s development began in 1950, by mathematician Alan Turing who posed the question of whether machines could think like humans did, and how. Turing published a paper “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” and established the “Turing Test”, which is designed to determine whether or not a computer is “intelligent” by testing if they can imitate an input given by a human and produce an output that human users cannot identify as coming from a machine. Even within a small nation such as Singapore, they are currently working on incorporating AI into their defense structure to “maximize combat effectiveness with minimum manpower.” Its development is rampant due to its promising contribution for the military in the future which could make work safer for the army, like its ability to spot and detect objects that are out of human view, helping personnel make decisions through analysis, increase accuracy in targeting, and more. Due to the potential damages and harm to human life, many experts including Elon Musk and the three co-founders of AI’s company “Google DeepMind” have pledged not to develop AI weapons that could create devastating results. They, and thousands of other AI experts, have opposed the existence of automated weapons that rely on AI without sufficient human control and constantly warns the public of the repercussions, whether moral or pragmatic, in enforcing such weapons. Still, there are no specific internationally agreed rules or conventions about AI in weapons yet. A disharmony in agreement or understanding about what can be used in the AI battle field and how much human intervention should be applied could result fatally.
