IBM to set Watson loose on cancer genome data

IBM to set Watson loose on cancer genome data | Library Education | Scoop.it

IBM has announced that it would be using Watson, the system that famously wiped the floor with human Jeopardy champions, to tackle a somewhat more significant problem: choosing treatments for cancer. In the process, the company hopes to help usher in the promised era of personalized medicine.

 

The announcement was made at the headquarters of IBM's partner in this effort, the New York Genome Center; its CEO, Robert Darnell called the program "not purely clinical and not purely research." Rather than seeking to gather new data about the mutations that drive cancer, the effort will attempt to determine if Watson can parse genome data and use it to recommend treatments.

Teaching Google Natives To Value Information

Teaching Google Natives To Value Information | Library Education | Scoop.it

The usual term is a digital native–students born into our digital, connected, and uber-social world who have always had Wikipedia to ask questions, and Google to bail them out.

There is nuance to this phenomenon that can distract a bit from the big picture. As with so many complex issues, it is tempting to over-generalize things—claims that 21st century students need to be taught with 21st century tools, or raging against the machine and forcing students to use books, dammit.

The authors conducted a systematic review of the published literature on social media use in medical education to answer two questions: (1) How have interventions using social media tools affected outcomes of satisfaction, knowledge, attitudes, and skills for physicians and physicians-in-training? and (2) What challenges and opportunities specific to social media have educators encountered in implementing these interventions?

Marie Ennis-O'Connor's curator insight, January 26, 2014 7:05 PM

Social media use in medical education is an emerging field of scholarship that merits further investigation. Educators face challenges in adapting new technologies, but they also have opportunities for innovation.

Сергей Ершиков's curator insight, January 28, 2014 1:32 AM

Использование социальных сервисов в медицинском образовании является развивающейся области науки, которая заслуживает дальнейшего расследования. Педагоги сталкиваются с трудностями в адаптации новых технологий, но они также имеют возможности для инноваций.

" Somebody asked me today on the Facebook page of this blog about some suggestions on iPad apps to create and share presentations and tutorials with students. In fact there are a wide range of apps out there that you can use to create presentations but if the purpose of your presentation is didactic and your  target audience are students then the apps below are the best you can ever use. Whether you want to make a simple slideshow, an animated tutorial, a guide, or a flipped lesson, the apps below will perfectly serve the purpose."
