Big Data is a high-volume, high-velocity and high-variety collection data that is so large and/or complex that traditional database management tools and applications have problems processing the information effectively.
Big Data already improved marketing, strategizing in businesses, data collection tools, data visualization and more.
A general definition of virtual machines (VMs) is that they are software-based hypothetical computers that imitate the computer’s architecture and functions.
There are system VMs that allow that multiple operation system (OS) environments can co-exist on the same computer, a somewhat different architecture set-up compared with real machines and application provisioning, maintenance, scaling and disaster recovery.
The idea of “Big Data” is engrained in the marketing world. Most people think of massive volumes of data (petabytes and beyond). But, “Big Data” experiences a paradigm shift and the more recent view sees it as unstructured data sources that need to be structured to perform better and faster analysis.
Humans recognize most objects in images and videos even when the objects are shown from different viewpoints, vary in sizes and scales or are transformed, converted or rotated.
They also can identify objects that are partially hidden or obstructed from the view based on their experience and brain processing power that is, so far, unmet by computers. Continue reading “Object-recognition Software – Why is the Error Rate that High?” »
DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) is one of the fundamental elements of life encoding the information for each cellular and subcellular process that allows to sustain life.
DNA is replicated each time a cell is dividing. But this process isn’t perfect. Little ‘mistakes’ are happening during each replication. External factors such as overexposure to UV light or exposure to different chemical can also damage DNA.
Most DNA damage is detected and repaired through precise and complex DNA repair mechanisms. Continue reading “Supercomputers “Understand” DNA Damage Recognition and Repair” »
Ever more people have smart phones. And, ever more people use apps to track their nutrition and fitness, find destinations, order food, communicate with friends, access their social networks and the list goes on and on. Apps are in!
What is of interest for app developers, providers and marketing is to understand not only pure usage, but also the way the audience is using it.
There are multiple analytic tools out there, either open-source or paid tools that help to understand user streams and mobile app use. Continue reading “7 Key Performance Indicators of Mobile Apps” »
The connectome is a broad map of neural connections within the brain.
It is primarily explored in scientific projects such as the “Human Connectome Project” sponsored by the National Institute of Health (NIH).
These kinds of studies aim to capture, map and understand the organization of neural interactions within the brain in healthy, living adults. Continue reading “‘Eyewire’ Game – Teaching Computers To Map the Brain” »
