When Urban Air Quality Meets Big Data Urban air quality -- the concentration of PM2.5 -- is of great importance in protecting human health. While there are limited air-quality-monitor-stations in a city, air quality varies by location significantly and is influenced by multiple complex factors, such as traffic flow and land use. Consequently, people cannot know the air quality of a location without a monitoring station. This project infers real-time, fine-grained air-quality information throughout a city, based on air-quality data reported by...

FaST-LMM and Windows Azure Put Genetics Research on Faster TrackAlthough researchers are able to collect, store, and analyze tremendous volumes of data, technological and storage limitations can severely impact the speed at which these data can be analyzed. A new algorithm developed by Microsoft Research, FaST-LMM, runs on Windows Azure in the cloud and expedites analysis time—reducing processing periods from years to just days or hours. An early application of FaST-LMM and Windows Azure helps researchers analyze data for the genetic causes of common diseases.

Health Care Decisions in the Information AgeBenjamin Handel of UC Berkley focuses on how individuals interact with the medical care sector to make important decisions. This involves using the information available and the incentives they face. The incentives can be financial and non-financial for both the consumer and the physician. For the consumer there can be the incentive of deductibles and high costs associated with switching plans. For physicians, fees are assigned to procedures. IT support in the health field is far behind IT support in other...
