How big data is changing the world

How big data is changing the world | cloud | Scoop.it

You may not be that bothered about the idea of living in a smart city but I bet you'd love to live in one that was happy.

The data to measure the happiness of a city is already all around us, in the tweets we send on an hourly basis to the profiles we share on Facebook.

Luca Naso's curator insight, September 24, 2013 11:17 AM

The Internet of Things can dramatically improve the quality of our city life.

- In Birmingham, lamp-posts are being fitted with sensors that can transmit information about cloud cover to offer hyper-local weather forecasting.

- In Seattle 5,000 pieces of rubbish were geo-tagged and tracked around the country for three months to find out whether recycling was really efficient.

- A project in Singapore offers advanced weather forecasts to taxi drivers to get them to places in the city ten minutes before it starts to rain.

- In Germany a3D dynamical city-model was used to show people what the impact of a new railway line would be.

 

All this is fantastic but scary at the same time and shifts the way the world works. The danger is that when smart cities become a reality, individuals will not be able to control the ways they are monitored or what happens to the information.

The issue has huge implications for society and is going to need serious debate.

SIDA: Le virus créé par l'homme a chuté de moitié chez les enfants depuis 2001 | cloud | Scoop.it

Lundi, un rapport diffusé à Genève a révélé que l’an passé on recensait 2,3 millions de nouveaux cas de personnes séropositives contre 2,5 millions en 2011. Cela représente une réduction de 33% par rapport à 2001. Surtout, le nombre d’enfants contaminés a diminué de 52%.

C'est un pas de plus dans la lutte contre le SIDA. Lundi, Onusida a dévoilé son rapport sur l’évolution du virus responsable de la maladie dans le monde. Selon les estimations, en 2012, 35,3 millions de personnes dans le monde vivaient avec le VIH, dont 70% en Afrique sud saharienne. Cette même année, 2,3 millions ont été infectées tandis que 1,6 million sont décédées (il y avait eu 1,8 million de décès en 2011 et 2,3 millions en 2005).

L’an dernier, on estime que 260.000 enfants ont été contaminés dans le monde, soit 35% de moins qu’en 2009 et 52% de moins par rapport à 2001. Ainsi, 670.000 enfants ont été sauvés entre 2009 et 2012. Les résultats sont encourageants puisque "le nombre annuel de nouvelles infections par le VIH continue à diminuer avec des réductions particulièrement plus rapides du nombre d'enfants contaminés", souligne Michel Sidibe, le directeur exécutif d'Onusida cité par l'AFP.

The tension between the monetization of social networks and people’s desire for privacy is something that doesn’t show any signs of resolving. The most valuable thing that social networks have is your information, and this infographic does a good job of vetting out where your information is and how vulnerable we all are because of it.

Identity theft!

Randy Hilarski's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:59 PM

Be careful what you post on social media. Public means public people!

Iron Dane Richards's comment, September 26, 2013 10:12 AM
Its a shame that we have so much internet identity theft in this digital age. One solution I highly recommend to many of our clients is the use of prepaid debit cards in order to minimize potential loss with like a Walmart, Netspend or Bancorp Prepaid Visa or Mastercard for online purchases and link that even further through a paypal debit card. Our website has links to business cards also http://ironsolutionsgroup.com/business-credit-cards/

Le crowdsourcing ou la puissance de l’intelligence collective

Le crowdsourcing ou la puissance de l’intelligence collective | cloud | Scoop.it

En valorisant la mise en commun des idées, le web 2.0 a favorisé l’éclosion de communautés s’appuyant sur la puissance de l’intelligence collective. La plateforme suisse Atizo, fondée par Christian Hirsig en 2007, est basée sur ce principe plus connu sous le nom d’«innovation ouverte» ou «crowdsourcing».

 

Le principe de l’innovation ouverte est très simple. Un créateur sollicite l’avis d’une communauté pour évaluer une idée ou un projet et les commentaires ainsi récoltés permettent de l’améliorer, voire d’en accroître sa valeur. Dans les cas les plus poussés, les membres d’une communauté peuvent également devenir de véritables acteurs de l’innovation en développant eux-mêmes leurs propres projets.

On assiste ainsi à un engagement des acteurs industriels dans de nouvelles voies de réflexion, autour du "healthcare" et de la e-santé notamment, dont les enjeux sont majeurs pour la société de demain.

Doctors Use Social For Continuous Medical Education

Doctors Use Social For Continuous Medical Education | cloud | Scoop.it
There are serious medical conversations going on every day on Twitter, squeezed in between the celebrity news and the millions posting what they had for lunch. To find them, just search for #FOAMed.

The hashtag refers to the concept of Free Open Access Meducation (medical education), or FOAM, first promoted at the 2012 International Conference on Emergency Medicine in a lecture by Mike Cadogan, an emergency medicine physician, educator and digital media enthusiast from Australia. Frustrated by the resistance of many physicians and medical educators to the serious potential of social media, he decided to rebrand what he and others were doing online as a form of continuing education.

 

 

I'd always seen blogging and podcasting as an amazing medium to use for medical education," Cadogan said in a Skype interview. He saw the rebranding as a way to "get people on board with something they felt was very beneath them."

The past year has seen proliferating use of the hashtag and specialty-specific variants on it (such as #FOAMcc for critical care doctors). While the Twitter feed itself, with its 140-character limit, doesn't lend itself to in deep exploration, it's acting as a carrier wave for broader conversations a click away in blogs, podcasts, videos and video chats. While this information has not gone through the same peer review filters as an article in a medical journal, enthusiasts say it is often more current and useful -- not necessarily for major research findings but as a way to share practical tips on techniques for the everyday practice of medicine.

 

"We've actively managed to engage a large group of researchers and significant academics who are moving away from writing textbooks and journal articles to doing more in the online arena," Cadogan said. "That's lending a sense of credence to what we're doing."

"The journals are still an essential part of the culture we work in," he allowed, but medical education is starting to be influenced by the open source and open content trends on the Internet, where "you take all the simple stuff, all the basic knowledge, and make it free." As an author of medical textbooks himself, Cadogan has decided it is more productive for him to spend his time blogging than to produce a new edition of one of those books.

Textbooks tend to be "outdated and expensive," whereas information gleaned from blogs and wikis can be better for fostering a "lifelong learning habit," said Michelle Lin, an associate professor of clinical emergency medicine at the University of California San Francisco and a contributor to the Academic Life in Emergency Medicine blog. Many FOAM enthusiasts will start a blog and use links posted to Twitter as "a means of directing people to their grander thoughts." Because of the growing number of clinical experts participating on Twitter, it can also be a powerful research tool, she said.

FOAM is distinct from the uses of social media for marketing or patient communication. Instead, the focus is on peer-to-peer networking of doctors.

Considered as education, FOAM mirrors what has been going on in other sectors of higher education with open educational resources (OERs) such as free digital textbooks and massive open online courses (MOOCs). At the undergraduate level, OER textbooks and other course materials are often promoted as a tool for lowering the cost of education, but also as a way of keeping instructional videos up to date by making them modular and digital. Although healthcare has some open textbook type projects of its own -- such as WikEM for emergency medicine -- most of the open education momentum is taking place outside of medical school.
