Prototyping for Applications

By Ishmene A.C.

Prototyping is used by many different types of organizations when developing a product and can be beneficial in creating a final product for a user with specific requirements. “Prototype-based methodologies repeatedly performs the phases of analysis, design, and implementation in a cycle until the final system is completed (Dennis, 2015)”. Prototypes are a model, or rough draft, of the big goal of a product. It is a way for users to get a sense of what the product or system will do. When creating a product, there are many different companies that utilize prototyping because it can provide many advantages. read more...

Agile in the World of Technology

By Daniel A.

Agile development is a methodology which is practiced in businesses, either practiced within the business or can be used more efficiently through another business. Businesses need to use the best resources in their disposal to produce services or products in which they can better fulfill the customer’s satisfaction. With so many methodologies to choose from it becomes a question on what would best suit the situation. No single methodology is the best at every situation, but there are many methodologies that can be flexible, but better suited for the issue at hand. Agile development is a great methodology if it is applied appropriately. read more...

Data Mining in the Military

By: Lyvon T.

We put a lot of trust in the United States military to protect us from harm. To do that, they must have access to the best technology, such as data mining. Our military has always been collecting and storing data but in recent decades, the amount of data as increased to an extent that data mining software is needed to aide them in their work. Today, they use it in tactical systems, surveillance, and medical databases just to name a few. The ability to collect, analyze, and determine new information from that data is extremely useful to the military. Having access to useful information makes them more efficient in what they do. read more...

Data Mining in Pharmaceutical Research & Development

By Ryan T.

The pharmaceutical industry has always relied heavily on data. That data consists of historical clinical trial results, cellular, genetic, microbial, molecular, proteomic, and metabolic data. With most, if not all, of this data being stored electronically and so much to sift through data mining has been highly advantageous in pharmaceutical research and development (Elvridge, 2016). Several proprietary and nonproprietary tools are available to researchers each with their own distinct differences. The pharmaceutical companies utilizing big data ranges from large companies to small firms since data mining effectively reduces the barrier of entry. This goes without saying, but big data mining does comes with risks and limitations when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry. Overall, the benefits far outweigh the risks though as developers and researchers continue improving their products. read more...

Data mining in Tourism

By Billy S.

Nowadays, travel and tourism have grown into a large industry throughout the world. As technology has played a major role in our day to day life, it tends to affects the behavior of travelers since it was easy enough to find information on the spot. Lately, travelers have changed how they travel where they prefer to roam freely and use technology as a guide rather than strict their schedule to a plan (1). As a result, tourism industry requires quick and up to date information from many locations around the world.

Machine Learning in the Travel Industry

By Binyong X.

The travel industry has changed in many ways due to the evolution of machine learning. It also made a great impact on how people decided on their trip plan such as when and where to buy tickets. Machine learning is the subfield of computer science that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed (Samuel). There’re generally three types of machine learning: supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement. Supervised learning is where the algorithm generates a function that maps inputs to desired outputs. Unsupervised learning is which models a set of inputs where the labeled examples aren’t available. Reinforcement learning is where the algorithm learns a policy of how to act given an observation of the world (Ayodele). read more...
