With the widespread application of emerginginformationtechnologies such as Internet of Things technology, mobile internet, big data, cloud computing, intelligent decision-making, knowledge management, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality in colleges and universities. It is necessary to have new ideas, plans and methods for the development of information technology in colleges and universities. The construction of smart campus has become the only way to develop. The main purpose of informatization in colleges and universities is to promote the reform and innovation of school teaching content, teaching methods and teaching methods, so that the smart campus can be combined with the whole staff and the whole process, so as to improve the level of education and improve the quality of running schools. The goal of building a smart campus in colleges and universities can be determined as the following four:
The rapid growth of the internet and the World Wide Web has led to the development of pharmacoinformatics technologies to assist oncology healthcare professionals in delivering optimum pharmaceutical care and health related outcomes. There is an increasing recognition that information technology can be effectively used for drug discovery. The work in pharmacoinformatics can be broadly divided into two categories - scientific aspects and service aspects. The scientific component deals with the drug discovery and development activities, whereas the service oriented aspects are more patient centric. Pharmacoinformatics subject feeds on many emerginginformationtechnologies like neuroinformatics, immunoinformatics, biosystem informatics, metabolomics, chemical reaction informatics, toxicoinformatics, cancer informatics, genome informatics, proteome informatics, biomedical informatics, The minimizing the time between a drug‘s discovery and its delivery to the marketplace and maintaining high productivity in the manufacturing processes. During a product‘s lifecycle many complex decisions must be made to achieve these goals. To better support the development and manufacturing processes at each stage, we have proposed a new epitome to facilitate the management and transfer of data information and knowledge. In future these information technology efforts are expected to grow both in terms of their reliability and scope. Thus, this emerging technology (pharmacoinformatics) is becoming an essential component of pharmaceutical sciences.
Clearly obtaining appropriate insurance, or even simply advising clients on the type of insurance and coverage to obtain as emerging technology is something that can deliver quantitative and qualitative benefits to the organization (Hayton, 2018). With the total global insurance market totaling trillions in total activity and value according to recent data this is not merely an academic or conceptual argument; it is core to how a business functions. Particularly as clients continue to embrace and implement emerging technology tools and platforms in different aspects of the business; front office, back office, and supply chain operations, understanding how these tools intersect with current functions is increasingly important. It is true that advising clients on either developing or purchasing appropriate cybersecurity policies, or insurance products linked to blockchain and cryptoassets, will most likely not form the majority of business operations it is worth illustrating the importance of having said conversations. Whatever the case may be, or how the interactions between certain firms and clients continue to develop, it seems clear that these conversations and engagements will need to evolve, develop, and become increasingly multi-faceted.
This paper examines the application of a variety of technologies to build the capacity in teachers to deliver sustained, inquiry based learning programs. Technology pervades the CY Science Project through the process of curriculum design and manufacturing as well as providing new ways to communicate curriculum ideas to teachers. “It is imperative to acknowledge that technologies are intricately related to many other elements of the learning context (such as task design) that can shape the possibilities they offer to learners, how learners perceive those possibilities and the extent to which learning outcomes can be realised” (McLoughlin & Lee, 2008, p.11 ).
Abstract — This paper presents a desk research that analysed available recent studies in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning. The desk research is focused on work produced in the frame of FP6 and FP7 European programs, in the area of Information and Communication Technologies. It concentrates in technologies that support existing forms of learning, and also in technologies that enhance new learning paradigms. This approach includes already adopted and successfully piloted technologies. The elaboration of the desk research had three main parts: firstly, the collection of documents from CORDIS and other institutions related to TEL research; secondly, the identification of relevant terms appearing in those documents and the elaboration of a thesaurus; and thirdly, a quantitative analysis of each term occurrences. Many of the identified technologies belong to the fields of interactive multimedia, Human-computer Interaction and-or related to recommendation and learning analytics. This study becomes a thorough review of the current state of these fields through the actual development of R&D European projects. This research, will be used as a basis to better understand the evolution of the sector, and to focus future research efforts on these sectors and their application to education.
customize pages and backgrounds, enter basic personal information in the profile section, and manage and maintain friend lists. The blogging feature of MySpace was introduced, and the students learned to record and upload audio files to their MySpace pages using Audacity software. Afterward, the students were required to create and maintain MySpace pages using all of the tools integrated therein, such as chats, blogs, audio and video uploads, and, of course, e-mail. Three important course components were the creation of and response to blogs on a variety of topics; recording and uploading of student-generated audio files; and cross-cohort interactions between students from two classes using chat, e-mail and responses to blogs—all of which were to be accomplished in English. Halvorsen found that the study encouraged student creativity and autonomy, as well as student collaboration both face-to-face in the classroom and on MySpace, especially among mixed-ability language learners, with peer support increasing and students taking on the role of mentor.
In addition, problems associated with low graduation, gen- erational retardation, and high dropout rates require special attention. The Mexican National Association of Universities and Institutions of Higher Education (ANUIES) publishes the number of students enrolled in universities by year, institution, academic program, age, and gender. Although it is the best source of information on higher education in Mexico, its last published report was for 2004 (ANUIES, 1996-2004). Table 1 shows first enrollment, total enrollment, graduates and the de- grees earned in E & T (Engineering & Technology—including Computer Science) and in E & NS (Exact & Natural Sciences) in Mexican institutions from 1996 to 2004. In many cases, however, students graduate (i.e., they finish all their academic units), but they never earn a degree. From the information shown in Table 1, one can estimate that in Mexico of all the students that enroll in E & T/ES & T university programs, roughly 35%, will actually earn a degree.
Regulation of genome engineering Technologies in India Recognising the global advances in the area of genome engineering technologies and huge potential for practical applications in healthcare and agriculture, initiatives have been taken in India by leading research institutions. In 2014, DBT has constituted a dedicated Task Force on “Genome Engineering Technologies and their Applications” with a vision to foster innovation and promote devel- opment of Genome-wide Analysis and Engineering Technologies to make them accessible and affordable for wider use in life sciences. It is proposed to strengthen facilities on emergingtechnologies such as gene editing and support research projects. Efforts are also underway
Steganography is an area of invisible communication. Steganography used for protecting the unauthorized access of the information but is an ancient technique which is in existence since 440 B.C. The most basic and important image Steganographic Technique is Least Significant Bit  embedding technique. In this technique, least significant bit of each pixel is replaced with secret message bit until message end. This way data can be hidden in the least significant bits of the cover image and the human eye would be unable to notice the hidden image in the cover file. This technique can be used for hiding images in 24-bit, 8-bit or gray scale format. But this technique has less embedding capacity and easy to detect. Marvel
While this scenario takes some liberties with what we can expect with regard to the artificial intelligence capabilities of computers, it does illustrate the forthcoming rise of more perceptual interfaces. Human communication is subtle and uses a combination of gesture, facial expression, speech and body language. Although this is difficult to achieve in practice, interfaces will become far more aware of all these aspects of human communication through a combination of sensing technologies (Pentland 2000). The ability to make greater use of gesture is seen as particularly important in educational situations and, as an example, technologies that can track eye gaze have become important for helping to improve access to technology for those who have disabilities. In a similar vein, researchers are looking at the perception of emotions and the role these can play in human-computer interaction (Marcus 2003). Interfaces based on these techniques will make interpretations of the emotional or affect state of the user and will respond to non-verbal cues by sensing a range of physiological inputs. MIT’s Galvactivator is a glove that senses the wearer’s skin conductivity (a potential clue to the user’s psychological state) and is an early example of this kind of technology. The educational potential of such affect-perception systems is beginning to be explored with a view to developing a machine that is more able to help a learner, acting as a‘friendly’ motivational tool with a‘psychological’presence (Picard et al 2004). Interfaces could, for example, detect and respond when a young child is losing interest, starting to fidget, and therefore perhaps failing to understand the learning material.
An important implication of this study is for the scope of the IT unit’s roles. IT-embedded, Internet-enabled products have the potential to become nodes in the firm’s extended information professing infrastructure. This potential might require IT units to become involved in the entire lifecycle of the IT-embedded, Internet-enabled products. For example, the Jeep Cherokee security incident cited earlier indicates that IT-embedded, Internet-enabled products could have major security vulnerabilities. If connected to the firm’s extended information processing infrastructure, they can also expose the entire infrastructure to such vulnerabilities. IT units use a variety of IT governance, risk, and control (GRC) frameworks such as ITIL, COBIT, NIST, ISO standards, etc. to build mechanisms to reduce such risks. Before adding any new hardware or software components to the infrastructure, IT units require them to align well with the firm’s business objectives, adhere to the firm’s enterprise IT architecture standards, and meet the firm’s security and privacy requirements. They also require any future changes, patches, and updates to the operational IT hardware and software to go through well-controlled change management processes. Such IT-GRC mechanisms may need to be extended to ITEPs as well if they are to become nodes in the firm’s extended information processing infrastructure. Vendors, consultants, and subcontractors who contribute to various stages and components of ITEP innovation process may come and go, but the IT unit of the firm needs have a continuous presence, in order to integrate all aspects of the project and. The quality of understanding and integration of all components is likely to be critical to the innovation process. Future studies could examine how IT units integrate the various stakeholders and components of the ITEP, how they integrate the product to the firm’s information processing infrastructure, how such integrations affect the risk profile of the firm, and whether and how IT-GRC mechanisms could mitigate the probability of loss and magnitude of loss associated with such risks. 5.2. Implications for Practice
Technology in hemostasis laboratories has evolved enormously during the last 30 years. Although many scientists and clinicians will remember the traditional tilt-tube techniques to screen for coagulation abnormalities and to monitor anticoagulant therapy, the hemostasis laboratory today uses a variety of modern technologies. These include ﬂow cytometry, chromogenic assays, molecular typing (e.g., polymerase chain reaction), im- munologic assays (e.g., enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays), functional assays of speciﬁc coagulation proteins, and platelet function analyzers. Although these advances in tech- nology have resulted in greater capability, productivity, sensitivity, speciﬁcity, and ulti- mately, improvement in the clinical care of patients, controversies and limitations remain. This article highlights new and emergingtechnologies in hemostasis and discusses whether they have improved or are likely to improve laboratory diagnostics by speciﬁcally addressing the following: (1) Can new technologies help predict likelihood of thrombosis recurrence? (2) Has an understanding of the role of a disintegrin-like and metalloprotease with thrombospondin type 1 motifs (ADAMTS13) in microangiopathy resulted in improved diagnostic methods for this disorder? (3) Does thrombelastography allow better deﬁnition of bleeding risk than conventional hemostasis assays, especially in settings of acute hemostatic pathology?
The rise of all these technologies that we have just seen has led to the recent appearance of the “artificial pancreas”, the “diabetic patient’s dream” . Since the demonstration, in 2015, of its efficacy in ambulatory care, the results of 24 studies on 585 patients, compiled in a recent meta-analysis, have confirmed a significant improvement in the time spent in the target, the reduction of HbA1c and mean blood glucose, without an increase in hypoglycemia [10,11]. To date, the artificial pancreas is based on a closed-loop insulin delivery system, integrating AI. Most of these devices are mono-hormonal (insulin) and semi-automatic, with the patient manually reporting food intake and physical activity. Many of these devices are expected to be quickly brought to market (e.g., Diabeloop TM from Medtech Company) . The limitations
In this article, a review of the Green Computing paradigm was presented with a focus on emerging IT technologies. Cloud computing, mobile computing, big data analytics, IoT, and software-based networks were identified as the emerging IT technologies driving the current popularity of the IT industry. The demand and social integration of IT technologies is increasing rapidly, hence, increas- ing the energy consumption. With a renewed focus on the global energy crisis, IT researchers and practition- ers have proposed and implemented several algorithms and protocols for the green operation of the IT industry. These algorithms and protocols implement mechanisms such as idle sleep states, energy-aware decision making, and resource scheduling. However, minimizing the energy consumption of a system significantly affects its perfor- mance parameters. The energy optimization level for a device highly depends on the use case of the applica- tion. Aggressive energy minimization policies effect sys- tem durability due to frequent power off and on system routines.
Customized information could be viewed through personalized web portals. New ILS systems are being implemented and allow for greater ability to offer online services connected with the catalog. “If you look at the way most people are actually getting information from the library, how well your website is designed and how easy it is to use is really your most important thing. That’s really where most people touch us now and that’s what we really need to look at” stated an interviewed librarian. A personalized portal might include services to alert patrons when materials are due, online renewal, hold requests, or the ability to download catalog searches for later use. A portal might also be used to page books electronically from one library to another for more convenient pickup.
The paper reviews recent research and development activities in the ﬁ eld of hydropower technology. It covers emerging and advanced technologies to mitigate ﬂ ow instabilities (active and passive approach) as well as emerging magneto-rheological control techniques. Recent research ﬁndings on ﬂow instabilities are also pre- sented, especially concerning ﬂ uid-structure interaction and transient operating conditions. As a great number of the existing large-scale hydroelectric facilities were constructed decades ago using technologies that are now considered obsolete, technologies to achieve the digitalisation of hydropower are also analysed. Advances in the electro-mechanical components and generator design are presented; their potential role to adapt hydropower to the current operating conditions is also highlighted. The text explores current e ﬀ orts to advance hydropower operation, mainly in terms of European projects. It provides a detailed overview of the recent eﬀorts to increase the operational range of hydraulic turbines in order to reach exceptional levels of ﬂ exibility, a topic of several recent research projects. Variable speed hydropower generation and its application in pumped storage power plants are presented in detail. Moreover, revolutionary concepts for hydroelectric energy storage are also pre- sented with the analysis focusing on underwater hydro storage and hydropower's hybridisation with fast energy storage systems. E ﬀ orts to minimise hydropower's environmental footprint are also presented via the utilisation of small-scale and ﬁsh-friendly installations.
