The RosettaHUB platform and portal aim at establishing a global open data science meta cloud centered on usability, reproducibility, auditability, and shareability. It makes real-time collaboration ubiquitous and supports a wide range of data science-centric virtual social interactions. RosttaHUB democratizes cloud computing and data science and lays the groundwork for public clouds mass adoption in research and education and beyond.
Researchers, Educators and students can leverage clouds, containers, data science software and big data technologies through the RosettaHUB’s converged web consoles, universal cross environments workbenches, web applications frameworks, hybrid R/Python/Scala kernels, federation APIs/SDKs and the data science apps marketplace. The RosettaHUB’s federation platform for AWS makes it possible for communities of collaborating users in research and education to use AWS within a monitored, safeguarded and auditable environment. The RosettaHUB/AWS Educate initiative provided thousands of educators and students with both the technology and the credits for enabling mass adoption of AWS in education. The presentation will give and overview of RosettaHUB’s key concepts and will expose the first results of the initiative.
Tailoring of treatment to patients is what medicine is supposed to be. However, “one shoe fits all” is what typically happens in western medicine. One patient p with problem x would be recommended treatment y, regardless of the unique characteristics of p. Personalized medicine, also termed precision medicine consists of tailoring the treatment based on the group a patients belongs too. At the extreme, it could be a unique treatment for a unique patient. The availability of genetic information such as microarray data and single nucleotide polymorphisms has played a major role in certain aspects of personalized medicine but today personalized medicine is not only limited to these. What is sure is that machine learning is a catalyzer that is making precision medicine possible and practical. We will present the techniques used and some real examples.
It has been generally accepted that intrinsically motivated activities are enjoyed hedonically, because they appeal to outcomes which are derived directly from the behavior itself and satisfy psychological needs directly. On the other hand, the incentives for extrinsic motivation are more concerned with utilitarian consequences separated from behavior and thus have less direct effects on psychological satisfaction. According to the experiential perspective of participation, customers’ motive of active participation can be substantially attributed to seeking intrinsic rewards, that is, the pleasure of participation in co-producing experiences, rather than simple extrinsic values based on utilitarian benefits and costs. In sum, consumers can make their experience more favorable by proactively, rather than passively, co-creating value derived from the experience.
For a modern marketer, how to design a platform where consumers can efficiently organize their resource project and thus maximize their value in the process of experience production-consumption is a critical issue to address. In this sense, social media in the era of digital marketing have been considered as an umbrella of solution which encompasses a variety of systematic instruments that enable users to co-create their experience value with new business models from consumption situations. As the level of customer’ participation increases, they are more likely to manage consumption resources, such as time, skills, goods, and services, in a creative way, to generate intrinsically rewarding stimuli of experiences.
The focus of this conference is on Digital Economy. That is, as the subtitle of the conference's title mentions, emerging technologies and business innovation that support and make possible this digital economy. Among the topics are digital marketing, the role of social media, security, and big data. In this 'networking talk' we want to focus on smart cities. We focus on smart city developments from a technological point of view. What is the role of smart sensors and actuators, what kind of applications become possible, and who are the stakeholders when introducing smart technology in our daily environments? We will emphasize the importance of smart technology to allow the development of applications in smart cities that address citizens needs that don't start with observations how to improve a city's efficiency (traffic management, energy consumption, sustainability), but first starts with observations how to make a city more livable and playful. The main aim to make a city more playful is increasing happiness of citizens. However, we may also look at how smart digital technology can be used to help persuading citizens to change their behavior. Not necessarily behavior changes that aim at food or entertainment consumption, but rather behavior changes that address health, education, and social relations. In this talk the role of playfulness and humor in our daily life activities is emphasized. Examples of smart humor technology and how it can be used to change people's behavior will be provided.
