Nayaki Nayyar, responsible for marketing and sales activities for iot at SAP in Palo Alto, California. More than one in seven developers at SAP engaged thus to building applications in different ways to communicate with the connected devices of all kinds. Our developers are busy building different types of IoT applications for customers, says Nayaki Nayyar, global manager of SAP for marketing and sales activities for iot, and stationed in Palo Alto, California. She goes on to give examples of applications for preventive maintenance, to sell volumes of electricity instead of turbines, to sell certain quantities of air instead of compressors, and so on. But what really stuck when Nayaki Nayyar talks are more general descriptions. - The first question we get when we discuss with customers iot is where the money is.

This one s a bit complicated, with organizations releasing sniping press releases and op-eds trying to discredit one another over mammogram screening guidelines.In what turned out to be a highly contentious move, earlier this year the US Preventive Services Task Force UPSTF issued a new set of recommendations.For those with a family history of breast, ovarian, tubal, or peritoneal cancer, the USPSTF recommends genetic counseling and, if desired, BRCA testing after the age of consent 18 years .The American College of Physicians ACP examined the current medical research on routine pelvic exams and concluded there is limited benefit to routine annual exams for asymptomatic, non pregnant women.In 2012, a co-screening blood test for the human papilloma virus itself, the cause of nearly 90% of cases of cervical cancer, was incorporated into the guidelines.The bone density test is an x-ray, typically of your hip and spine.

The American Cancer Society ACS recommends four screening options for low risk men.They do not consider tests done based on in office digital rectal exams to be a sufficient means of screening for cancer.The test will usually last under a minute — you may feel some mild discomfort but there shouldn t be any pain.The PSA test may deliver falsely positive results level elevated but no cancer ., leading to unnecessary anxiety and additional testing.Penile cancer just seemed like the most eye-catching header to go with here.Insurance coverage in the US is higher than ever, but many still have limited or no access to this kind of preventative care.
Back in April Nokia announced it was buying health and fitness focused gadget maker Withings for €170 million $190M .Following the acquisition, Withings co-founder and CEO Cedric Hutchings has been made head of a new Digital Health business unit at Nokia, reporting to Ramzi Haidamus, president of Nokia Technologies — the company s R and IP licensing division.Discussing the deal, Nokia flags up existing expertise in preventive health and patient care in its Nokia Technologies division, which it said it intends to build on with the acquisition of Withings consumer health gadget and digital health platform business.In a statement on the close of the acquisition Haidamus dubbed the health space a huge opportunity .The Withings acquisition is not the only consumer gadget focused move by Nokia this year.Last month it revealed its route back into the mobile devices market — via an exclusive brand licensing arrangement with a newly established Finnish company that intends to produce a range of Nokia-branded smartphone and tablets.
Nokia has completed its acquisition of activity tracker and health-monitoring device company Withings earlier than had been expected.The new unit, part of the Nokia Technologies business, will combine staff from Withings with Nokia's preventive health and patient care teams.Nokia Technologies president Ramzi Haidamus said: "The Nokia brand is synonymous with innovation, connectivity and consumer technology and the acquisition of Withings puts us in a perfect position to capitalize on the huge opportunity in the health space."Nokia is still best known by many for being the mobile phone giant of the 1990s and early 2000s: it sold its handset business to Microsoft in 2014 Microsoft subsequently dismantled most of that at the cost of a $7bn write-off .Last year it launched Ozo, a virtual reality camera designed for film and TV professionals and, as well as snapping up Withings, it has also signed deals that mean the Nokia brand will soon be appearing on smartphones and tablets again.Later this month Nokia is holding an event in San Francisco to discuss its plans and showcase new products.

Preventive chemical legislation is a precondition for us to achieve non-toxic and resource-efficient recycling, says Amelie Pedersen, project manager at the Swedish Chemicals Agency, in a statement. There stresses Kemikalieinspektionen waste laws and chemicals legislation are need to be developed in parallel to the recycling of materials can increase without dangerous chemical substances circulating in the cycle. - Knowledge of the properties of chemical substances is the basis for safe operation. Particularly hazardous substances should as far as possible be phased out of the cycles, says Amelie Pedersen.
I was told it uses four or five megabits per second for the video and a little more for data driving the haptics.I've also recently chatted with Doctor Victoria Wade, a senior research fellow at the University of Adelaide.Such prophylactic action is considered an enormous potential benefit of universal broadband.When detailed images are needed, Wade told me that specialist cameras, not more bandwidth, are what's needed.Australia already has a service called Tele-Derm that sees general practitioners in rural areas forward photos of possible skin cancers to experts.I hope that before readers do so, they consider a few other things, namely:When the NBN was conceived as all-FTTP there were few alternatives for 100 Mbps connections.
Not because they may potentially cause cancer that's a valid concern , but because people are so glued to them and often not looking at what they're walking into on the street.With the help of the National Police Agency, Seoul, South Korea's Metropolitan Government is taking preventive measures to warn the city's citizens to be more aware of their surroundings when using their smartphones.The new traffic signs will be installed in five districts Hongdae, City Hall, Yonsei University, Gangnam Station and Jamsil Station the government has identified as areas that have seen high reports of smartphone-related accidents from citizens in their 10s to 30s.It's also not the first time we've seen smartphone-specific solutions implemented by cities.A few years back, a Chinese theme park in Chongqing, China, came up with a clever walking lane designed just for people using their smartphones.While it was only isolated to the theme park and a similar texting lane was installed in Washington D.C. as part of the "Mind Over Masses" science series campaign for National Geographic, these solutions shouldn't be shrugged off as silly.
A few weeks ago, I went to pick up my birth-control prescription from my local pharmacy and was told my doctor needed renew it.I explained I was there for a time-sensitive prescription consultation and not for a well-woman exam.One recent study found that a third of OB/GYNs and family medicine practitioners always require a pelvic exam when prescribing the pill, with 44 percent usually requiring it — though there is no medical reason to do so, and many women find themselves compelled year after year to submit to uncomfortable, unnecessary examinations and tests.But pap smears and pelvic exams address different issues than do consultations for the pill — and still many doctors marry them, forcing excessive well-woman checks on patients coming in for the pill.Healthy women over 30 need pap smears only every three to five years, after all.And just this week, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force questioned whether asymptomatic adult women need annual pelvic exams at all.
Need a ride to the doctor?Transportation to medical appointments can be difficult for many people.According health care communications company Relatient, approximately 3.6 million people in the United States cannot access health care due to a lack of transportation.That could change soon, as Uber and Relatient are teaming up to integrate the Uber app in all text and email messages Relatient sends to patients, to remind them how easy it can be to get to their appointments.Relatient s services as a patient relationship and management company include sending appointment reminders, follow-up care coordination, payment balance information, and preventative care prompts.Each of those messages will include an Uber app link.
This quarter s funding year-over-year was marked by a higher total fundraising, but coming from a smaller number of deals.In the second quarter of 2016, 33 unicorns raised a total of $25.1 billion from 41 funding events.This represents a 70 percent increase in funding compared to the second quarter of 2015, but from fewer funding events: 41 versus 69.Looking at the evolution of company valuations, we saw 20 up rounds, 11 unchanged valuations, and only 2 down rounds.The combined value progression is a staggeringly positive $75 billion, suggesting very good health — for the moment, anyway — for companies in the Unicorn Club, those that reach a billion-dollar valuation.The Unicorn Club continues to greet new entrants, but at a slower pace.The second quarter of 2015 saw the emergence of 25 unicorns.The slowing trend continued, with 11 companies attaining unicorn status in the first quarter of 2016 and 10 in the second quarter of this year.A high-resolution Unicorn Club landscape from VB Profiles is available here.Here s a quick overview of the newcomers:Human Longevity is a genomics and cell therapy company focused on extending the healthy, high-performance human lifespan.Lianjia, also known as Home Link, owns 7 percent market share in China s online and offline real estate services market.iCarbonX is aimed at building an ecosystem of digital life based on the combination of consumers big life data, internet, and artificial intelligence.Pivotal s cloud-native platform drives software innovation for many of the world s biggest brands.They have millions of developers around the world.Age of Learning is the rapidly growing company that created and continues to actively develop the multi-award-winning ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy.Ping An Good Doctor is a health care and medical service app offering text, photo, voice, and video consultation for preventive nursery care, guidance for doctor s visits, post-diagnosis services, chronic disease management, medication alerts, and so on.Zoox is developing fully autonomous vehicles and the supporting ecosystem required to bring the technology to market at scale.SMS Assist is a Chicago-based technology company providing multisite property management to a roster of clients with more than 90,000 service locations.Cylance is a global provider of cybersecurity products and services that strives to change the way companies, governments, and end users proactively solve the world s most difficult security problems.Liepin is a community-based recruitment site, offering an interactive high-end talent recruitment platform that bridges businesses, headhunters, and workplaces.Twilio raised $150 million in its initial public offering, pricing the shares above the marketed range for a valuation of $1.23 billion.
Cybersecurity spending has grown eight percent since last year, says Gartner.The threat posed by hackers and cybercriminals is proving to be a great financial opportunity for IT security companies: according to analysts Gartner, worldwide spending on information security is set to hit $81.6bn £62.8bn this year.Gartner says spending on security products and services will grow eight percent year-on-year in 2016, as businesses attempt to spend their way to being secure in the face of the dual threat of both ever more sophisticated cyberattacks and a shortage of cybersecurity professionals.While preventive measures like firewalls remain the top purchase for security professionals, spending on products that detect and respond to threats that have already infiltrated the network is on the up."Organisations are increasingly focusing on detection and response, because taking a preventive approach has not been successful in blocking malicious attacks," said Elizabeth Kim, senior research analyst at Gartner.Given the shortage of cybersecurity staff, Gartner predicts that spending on secure web gateways and detection-and-response approaches will grow by another 10 percent by 2020 as firms look to plug the security gap and effectively detect threats.
CareSkore is combining clinical, socio-economic, demographic, and behavioral data to paint a holistic picture of patients that doctors and insurance companies can use to provide better preventative care.The platform is leveraging Google s TensorFlow and Hadoop to cut through massive third party data sets and generate insights by finding relationships between environmental and clinical data.From a data-science perspective, CareSkore uses ensemble learning techniques like random forest analysis to combine various statistical models to produce a less noisy, more accurate result.The platform can inform doctors of patients who are most likely to skip an appointment and who are likely to forget or intentionally fail to take medication on time.Predilytics got acquired by Welltok last year, but the company focuses more on health risk management than direct patient communication.Third-party intelligence is where CareSkore looks to set itself apart from other analytics platforms like Ayasdi and Optum.
