Digital marketing – The Economic Times

Omnichannel certainly is a very hot topic. When companies are thinking about omnichannel, they sometimes want to think about distinguishing from multichannel. The big distinguishing aspect of it is multichannel has different ways in which you’re reaching the customer. Omnichannel is that as well, but it should be in synergy.

There is something called predictive learning, which is a type of machine learning where you can imagine data sitting in different places, and a central kind of — you can call it an algorithm process — [where] each of the data by themselves is anonymised. In that sense, you can mix in the secret sauce, so to speak, without any of the ingredients coming together.

That’s one way to do it where silos [exist] because of regulation. There are these kinds of solutions that, increasingly, many companies are thinking about. When you think about all the wonderful things that omnichannel

Learning Design and Technology (MS)

The face of education is changing.

New technologies have catalyzed an evolution in tools for learning. As schools, governments, and corporations look to emerging technologies to enhance learning environments and improve outcomes, these efforts must be guided by empirically-grounded learning sciences and design.

The Learning Design and Technology program builds the creativity, knowledge, and skills necessary to pioneer the future of equitable, effective learning.


The program

This 11-month, full-time residential program integrates powerful contemporary ideas about learning with emergent technologies to design and evaluate learning environments, products, and programs. The LDT program features a blend of theory and project-based courses, a real-world internship, and a major design project. It awards a master’s of science (MS) degree.

6 Technology Articles You Must Read Today

Enjoy these six tech articles as we come down the homestretch into the weekend.

Greg Otto at fedscoop wrote this interesting piece about IBM’s Watson-as-a-Service.

Otto writes:

IBM announced last week it has moved its cognitive computing system into the cloud to form the Watson Discovery Advisor, allowing researchers, academics and anyone else trying to leverage big data the ability to test programs and hypotheses at speeds never before seen.

Since Watson is built to understand the nuance of natural language, this new service allows researchers to process millions of data points normally impossible for humans to handle. This can reduce project timelines from years to weeks or days.

The ability to understand natural language queries is a big deal. You can ask, for example: “I’m going to be in Boston. I like basketball. What do you suggest, Watson?” You might get several answers: Celtics tickets, Boston College tickets, Harvard

SPDF – CDAS Web Services

CDAS Web Services

The Coordinated Data Analysis System (CDAS) Web services allow a software
developer to use CDAS services in their own application.  If you are
not a software developer and simply want to use the existing web (HTML)
interface to CDAS, then return to the
main CDAWeb page.


CDAS supports simultaneous multi-mission, multi-instrument selection and
comparison of science data among a wide range of current space missions. 
While CDAWeb provides access to this data through an HTML-based user interface,
these Web services provides a
application programmming interface
(API) to CDAS. If you are developing an application that requires
science data from any of the data sets held by CDAS, then the CDAS Web
services will provide an interface to the data for your application.
