Obama and Romney big data experts continue the battle as businesses | ComputerWorld.com

Obama and Romney big data experts continue the battle as businesses | ComputerWorld.com | Big Data | Scoop.it

The self-described nerds of President Obama's presidential campaign last year were back using big data analytics, this time to help Newark Mayor Cory Booker achieve a landside primary win Tuesday in the New Jersey Democratic primary for a vacant U.S. Senate seat.

 

But, notably, the Obama data scientists are doing this work as consultants, through their own recently formed firm, BlueLabs.

 

BlueLabs built a turnout model for the Booker campaign, predicting the likelihood of each Democratic voter in New Jersey to vote in the primary.

 

The primary results "proved that our model was spot on," said BlueLabs co-founder Chris Wegrzyn, one of the former senior members of the 2012 Obama campaign's analytical department.

 

The proof, one supposes, is in the victory. But the Republican data scientists aren't ceding anything.

 

At about the same time BlueLabs was formed, the chief data scientist for Mitt Romney's campaign, Alex Lundry, co-founded Deep Root Analytics.

 

Lundry gives credit to the Obama campaign data effort, and said "that campaign, without a doubt, in 2012, had data and analytics more fully integrated into their structure."

 

But since last year's election, "what you are seeing is a flurry of activity on the right to make sure that we not only catch them, but surpass them," Lundry said.

 

Indeed, while the Democrats were counting votes Tuesday, Deep Root announced a partnership with FourthWall Media, a major source of cable set-top box viewing data.

 

That data, which is anonymized, records what people watch. Change a channel and a new row of data is created. The idea is to take this data, combine it with insights about the voters, and then place ads on TV shows most likely to reach certain voters, such as swing voters. Lundry said this will improve the efficiency of campaign advertising spending.

 

Political campaigns have been using data for years to develop sophisticated understanding of voters. But the combination of relatively low-cost cloud computing, large quantities of data collected via online, in public repositories, and from sensors and so on, gave rise to big data analysis as researchers correlated these data sets in search of new insights.

 

"You are collecting everything you can, and essentially comparing it every way you can," said James Hendler, a professor in the computer and cognitive science departments at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and head of its Institute for Data Exploration and Applications.

System developed that uses a big data approach to personalized healthcare

System developed that uses a big data approach to personalized healthcare | Big Data | Scoop.it

University of Notre Dame researchers have developed a computer-aided method that uses electronic medical records to offer the promise of rapid advances toward personalized health care, disease management and wellness.

 

Notre Dame computer science professor Nitesh V. Chawla and his doctoral student, Darcy A. Davis, developed the system called Collaborative Assessment and Recommendation Engine (CARE) for personalized disease risk predictions and wellbeing.

 

"The potential for 'personalizing' health care from a disease prevention, disease management and therapeutics perspective is increasing," Chawla said. "Health care informatics and advanced analytics, or data science, may contribute to this shift from population-based evidence for health care decision-making to the fusion of population and individual based evidence in health care. The key question is: how to leverage health population data to drive patient-centered health care?"

 

At the heart of CARE is a novel collaborative filtering method that captures patient similarities and produces personalized disease risk profiles for individuals. Using what is known as Big Data science, the system generates predictions focused on other diseases that are based on Big Data from similar patients.

 

"In its most conservative use, the CARE rankings can provide reminders for conditions that busy doctors may have overlooked," Chawla said. "Utilized to its full potential, CARE can be used to explore broader disease histories, suggest previously unconsidered concerns, and facilitate discussion about early testing and prevention, as well as wellness strategies that may ring a more familiar bell with an individual and are essentially doable.

 

"We believe that our work can lead to reduced re-admission rates, improved quality of care ratings and can demonstrate meaningful use, impact personal and population health, and push forward the discussion and impact on the patient-centered paradigm."

 

Chawla points out that the core premise of CARE is centered on patient empowerment and patient engagement.

De belofte van Big Data is groot wat mij betreft. Zeker in de gezondheidszorg kan dit nog wel eens een omslag in het behandelen van een patiënt gaan betekenen. Maar hoe zorg je ervoor dat je gebruik kunt maken van de bevolkingsgegevens over gezondheid om patientgerichte zorg kunt leveren?

 

Onderzoekers van de Univeristy of Notre Dame hebben een comutergestuurd systeem ontwikkeld (CARE) dat op basis van 'big data' uit electronische patiëntendossiers overeenkomsten tussen patiënten kan uitrekenen en op die manier toch de belofte van gepersonaliseerde gezondheidszorg in zich draagt.
