R – GPU Programming for All with ‘gpuR’ – ParallelR

R – GPU Programming for All with ‘gpuR’ – ParallelR | BIG DATA | Scoop.it
GPUs (Graphic Processing Units) have become much more popular in recent years for computationally intensive calculations. Despite these gains, the use of this hardware has been very limited in the R programming language. Although possible, the prospect of programming in either OpenCL or CUDA is difficult for many programmers unaccustomed to working with such a low-level interface. Creating bindings for R’s high-level programming that abstracts away the complex GPU code would make using GPUs far more accessible to R users.

Big Data & Health Care | USTelecom.org | BIG DATA | Scoop.it

Big data holds broad-ranging opportunities for many industries, helping analysts focus on important information that can translate to meaningful applications and discoveries.

 

The health care field is a prime example of this potential where a number of big data-driven efforts are currently underway that could ultimately deliver an array of advances ranging from more precise patient diagnoses to new discoveries that provide enhanced treatment for patients living with chronic conditions.

 

A Wall Street Journal article on the new startup Enlitic notes how the company is leveraging big data via a new software program using photographic identification and algorithms to facilitate sharper medical diagnoses. In addition, Wired reports that this technology not only has the potential to help detect diseases, but could also “make new discoveries by uncovering previously unnoticed patterns in the data.”

 

Big data analytics is also aiding disease research in an unprecedented way. ComputerWeekly documents how a new research project combining wearable technologies, big data analytics and public cloud computing could yield important new discoveries for Parkinson’s disease. The effort, spearheaded by the Michael J. Fox Foundation in collaboration with Intel, is monitoring thousands of patients who are participating in the program by wearing smartwatches that gather and transmit each individual’s data moment-to-moment, in real time. Using the big data analytics platform on the Amazon Web Services cloud, researchers expect to cull precise information that sheds light on how Parkinson’s progresses and could help lead to new breakthroughs in treatment.

All companies saw a profit-margin lift of between 3 and 8 percent from setting prices at much more granular product levels.

 

According to McKinsey, up to 30% of companies still fail to deliver the best price.

 

Four steps to turn data into profits:

1. Listen to the data
2. Automate
3. Build skills and confidence
4. Actively manage performance
