Hovenring: The First Suspended Bicycle Roundabout

Hovenring: The First Suspended Bicycle Roundabout | Inspiring Ideas, Innovators | Scoop.it

When a roundabout intersection in the Netherlands became too busy for cars and bikes to share space, the design agency ipv Delft came up with a beautiful solution to separate the two transportation forms completely: an elevated bicycle roundabout.

Called the Hovenring, the structure holds the distinction of being the first suspended bicycle roundabout in the world. The entire futuristically styled ring is supported by the needle shaped central pylon, lending the delicately designed structure an appearance of levitation. This is only enhanced by a shape that resembles a flying saucer and night time illumination around, above and below the ring.

PLOS Biology: Foundations of Neuroeconomics: From Philosophy to Practice

PLOS Biology: Foundations of Neuroeconomics: From Philosophy to Practice | Inspiring Ideas, Innovators | Scoop.it

Evidence that neuroscience improves our understanding of economic phenomena [1–4] comes from a broad array of novel experimental findings, including demonstrations of brain regions that guide responses to fair [5,6] and unfair [7] social interactions, that resolve uncertainty during decision making [8], that track loss aversion [9] and subjective value [10], and that encode willingness to pay [11,12] and reward error signals [13,14]. Yet, neuroeconomics has been characterized as a faddish juxtaposition, not an integration, of disparate domains [15]. More damningly, critics have charged that neuroscience and economics are fundamentally incompatible [16], an argument that resonates with many social scientists. Economics thrived for centuries in the absence of neuroscience and some economists argue that existing neuroeconomics research is not useful to mainstream economics [17,18].

We reject the fundamental charge that neuroscience cannot influence economic modeling, even in principle, and focus on two criticisms of integrating these fields, which we label theBehavioral Sufficiency and Emergent Phenomenon arguments. We show here that these arguments contain hidden assumptions that render them unsound within the practical constraints of science.

We go on to explore two interrelated questions: is there a unique niche for a field of neuroeconomics, and, if so, what are its proper foundational principles? We do not rely on the recent demonstrations of brain systems that support economic behavior nor recount the valid concerns about potential technological constraints of neuroscience. Rather, we attempt to clarify the necessary foundations for neuroeconomics research [19–21], for which we identify two core principles, Mechanistic Convergence and Biological Plausibility.

We then ask how information about neural mechanisms improves the predictive and explanatory power of economic models. Importantly, the points we raise here recapitulate both the cognitive revolution [22] and the subsequent intertwining of cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience [23,24]. We believe that the seemingly disparate neural and social sciences have much to gain from each other

Social Media Monitoring: Innovation for Public & Veteran Health

Social Media Monitoring: Innovation for Public & Veteran Health | Inspiring Ideas, Innovators | Scoop.it

Day-to-day personal interactions that don’t include social media are becoming harder and harder to find. US consumers spent 20-30 percent of their time online or 121 billion total minutes in July 2012 on social networking, up 37 percent from 2011. In other words, Americans alone spend upwards of 24 billion hours each year divulging minute-to-minute personal details online… or lurking…  with no indication of stopping.

 

This week, Ombud has taken a look at some innovative ways organizations are leveraging that magnitude of data for potentially life-saving innovations in Social Media Monitoring technologies.

 

Pharma + Consumer Surveillance = Pharmacovigilance


Social media trends present an opportunity for the pharmaceutical industry to gain medical insights and provide immediate medical alerts to consumers. This translates into a significant opportunity to revolutionize pharmacovigilance.

Pharmacovigilance is the science and activities related to detecting, assessing, understanding and preventing adverse event (any undesirable experience) or any other drug-related problem.

A partnership between the EU and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, known as the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), is bringing Social Media Monitoring to pharmacovigilance. IMI is currently seeking social media innovation to establish a policy and regulatory framework for pharmacovigilance surveillance.

The IMI has two overall methods of gathering crucial self-reported data:

Reporting: Patients suffering suspected adverse effects from medications could directly report to appropriate authorities through a mobile app integrated with established workflows and tools. Such reports can come from patients or physicians and becomes the basis of a two-way communication between reporter and authority. Data Mining: Social media will be scanned for emerging, self-reported medical insights. Content gathered from several web sources into a social media monitoring solution will allow for analysis and identification of adverse events in real-time.

This will allow for real-time reporting, identification and alerting on adverse events.

 

Leveraging Social Media Monitoring for healthcare is also taking hold in the US.

 

US Veteran Support

Social Media Monitoring technologies also allow for a new effort to save American veterans. Military suicide experts are collaborating with software companies to identify signs of despondency in military veterans through social media.

On average, 22 US military veterans are lost to suicide each day. These men and women may not explicitly announce their intentions in their Facebook statuses. However, military suicide experts believe social media postings can be analyzed for instant help before it’s too late.

 

These experts are currently researching their theory to find out how to monitor social media postings to predict and prevent military and veteran suicides.

Phase one of the project has already been completed. Based on doctors’ notes from veteran patients, experts identified key words and phrases to create a language-driven suicide prediction model.

 

Up to 100,000 service members and veterans in addition to their support network will be volunteering in phase two of the project to test the model’s predictive quality.

 

The results of this study will become the basis of identifying at-risk service members and veterans. Once identified, they will be automatically linked to resources. Their support network will also be notified in hopes of initiating intervention in time for prevention.

 

Key Takeaway


Innovating new uses for Social Media Monitoring technologies, organizations are demonstrating the value of social media far beyond networking and marketing.

 

After identifying a Social Media Monitoring initiative, the second step is finding the best tool to accomplish your goal. Dozens of options exist ranging from comprehensive social business tools to listening tools to publishing tools. Each is equipped with a very different set of capabilities and total cost of ownership.

Ombud has included Social Media Monitoring tools within our Social Media
