I am John Bond from Riverwinds Consulting and this is Publishing Defined. Today I am going to discuss text mining as it relates to scholarly publishing. Text mining also goes by the phrase text data mining or text analytics. Text mining in scholarly publishing is the process of deriving high-quality information from peer reviewed articles and other content. It does this by processing large amounts of information and looking for patterns within the data, and then evaluating and interpreting the results. Text mining is most beneficial to researchers or other power users of technical content. It is very different from a keyword search such that you might perform with Google. A key word search likely produces thousands of web links with no uniformity in the results and certainly no ability to draw meaningful conclusions. An example: let’s say you are researching bladder cancer in men and you are looking for specific biomarkers for other disease states. You probably don’t have the time to review all the literature you might find through a search at PubMed. Text mining will review the available literature. It understands the parts of speech (nouns, verbs), recognizes abbreviations, takes term frequency into account, and other natural language processes. It will filter through all the content, extracts relevant facts, spot patterns, and provides the researcher with a more condensed set of results and statements than a literature search or a cursory review of abstracts ever could. It knows bladder cancer is a disease state. It knows, in this instance, to look for men as opposed to women. It understands what a biomarker is and how to apply this term to other disease states. It understands bladder cancer is a phrase and not being used as two separate terms. Text mining software involves high level programming and such concepts as word frequency distribution, pattern recognition, information extraction, and natural language processing as well as other programming concepts well beyond the scope of this video. The overall goal is to turn text into data for analysis and thereby help to draw conclusions. However, the results of text mining in and of themselves is not the end product, just part of the process. Individual text mining tools or enterprise level ones have become more common with researchers, librarians, and large for profit and not for profit organizations, and they will only grow. Aside from a text mining tool, an application is also necessary to check that the content being mined is licensed and to provide appropriate links to the content. Text mining is important to publishers or any group that holds large stores of full text articles or databases because this information as a whole has greater value than each individual part. Text mining can help extract that value. A key point for publishers is that the text mining tool and its user, such as a researcher, needs to have access to the content either by it being open access, through a subscription, or through a purchase. Subscription publishers see revenue when content is accessed or purchased. All publishers see article downloads and page views from text mining efforts. Either way, text mining as a tool in research, in medicine, in pharmaceutical R&D will only continue to grow in importance. Well that’s it. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel or click on the playlist to see more videos about text mining in scholarly publishing. And make comments below or email me with questions. Thank so much and take care.

Amazing Potential and Dark Side of Big Data
The CEU University-wide seminar series was introduced in 2015 as part of the ITI (https://www.ceu.edu/iti), and it is meant to stimulate better internal communication on academic matters, as well as increase interdisciplinary and cross-unit collaboration at CEU. Big data can be used by social scientists to study a variety of phenomena. Cell phone data can inform us about mobility and interaction patterns. Article citations can be measured throughout the career of successful scientists to ask what drives success. However, corporations and governments can also use big data to further their agenda, not always in line with societal goals. We illustrate informative applications of big data and discuss ethical considerations to stay clear of the "dark side." Speakers Janos Kertesz, Professor at the Center for Network Science -- Human Behavior from Big Data -- Chrys Margaritidis, Dean of Students-- Big Data, Big Brother, Big Challenges: The Ethical Side of Big Data -- Roberta Sinatra, Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Its Applications and at the Center for Network Science -- Understanding performance and success with big data -- Chair and Discussant: Miklós Koren, Professor at the Department of Economics.

Health IT Webinar: Tips For Generating and Utilizing Quality Data Reports Using Health IT
HRSA Health IT Webinar: "Tips For Generating and Utilizing Quality Data Reports Using Health IT." Presented on Friday , July 22, 2011, 2pm to 3:30pm EST This webinar focuses on how safety net providers such as health centers and rural providers can generate quality reports and utilize this data for improving healthcare outcomes. Collecting and analyzing data is one of the central functions for assessing and targeting how to improve healthcare quality. Data enables staff to accurately identify workflow and care coordination inefficiencies, establish best practices, and assist in providing evidence based examples to staff and patients on how to improve outcomes. This webinar's presenters will demonstrate how they use health IT and/or electronic health records systems as a tool for generating quality reports. Furthermore, these safety net providers will demonstrate how they use their health center or critical access hospital clinical data for successfully coordinating care among provider teams, informing and engaging patients on care decisions, and for improving health quality and outcomes. The presenters include: • Kwame Kitson, M.D. Director of Quality Institute of Family Health, New York State • Margaret Flinter, APRN, PhD, Vice President and Clinical Director, Community Health Center, Connecticut • Bob DeMarco, RN, MA, BSN, Chief of Quality and Systems Improvement, Springfield Medical Care Systems, Vermont

What is HEALTH WEB SCIENCE? What does HEALTH WEB SCIENCE mean? HEALTH WEB SCIENCE meaning - HEALTH WEB SCIENCE definition - HEALTH WEB SCIENCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Health Web Science (HWS) is a sub-discipline of Web Science that examines the interplay between health sciences, health and well-being, and the Web. It assumes that each domain influences the others. HWS thus complements and overlaps with Medicine 2.0 (medicine enabled by emerging technologies). Research has uncovered emergent properties that arise as individuals interact with each other, with healthcare providers and with the Web itself. HWS began at the Web Science Curriculum meeting in the summer of 2010 at the University of Southampton where approximately forty scholars came together to discuss the subject. That was followed by a foundational Workshop in Koblenz 2011 under the aegis of ACM. The dialogue to more precisely define HWS as a sub-discipline of Web Science began among Web-oriented investigators at the 2012 Medicine 2.0 Conference and was formalized in 2013. This nascent discipline of Health Web Science is further described and developed in the monograph "Health Web Science". A call to action at the ACM Web Science workshop asked the community to consider how to accelerate the discipline. In particular, beyond the available knowledge-gathering technologies (e.g. blogs, social-medicine portals, experience mining, graph theory, network analysis, and game theory), what additional is required to deal with the Health Web's emergent properties? For example, what is needed to curate, interrogate, and visualize the combination of both 'Big Data' – arising from the increasingly pervasive sources and sensors including "the Internet of things, the quantified self, smart cities, and smart homes – and smaller-scale data arising from individual patient conversations, self-reporting, and self-exploration? How are small-scale innovations safely and efficiently scaled up to the size of the Web and scaled out to millions of patients? One research group argued for technologies that enable predictive, personalized, preventive, and participatory (P4) medicine. Other stated needs include an "Expert Patient" capable of making sense of online medical information in a personal context, tools to cope with information overload through e.g., text mining and semantic technologies, in particular through algorithm-aided decision making. At the Medicine 2.0 European meeting in 2014, the case was made for the need to design bespoke health web observatories. The Web Science Trust introduced the concept of a Web observatory as an integrated collection of data sources and analysis tools that enables observation and experimentation for Web study, and positioned it to bridge the gap between big data analytics and the data. A Health Web observatory, therefore, gathers and links health data on the Web (big data and broad data) in order to answer questions. This facilitates the 'Healthcare Singularity' where bench-to-bedside and experiment-to-practice becomes instantaneous. HWS combines the axiom of 'first do no harm' (Hippocrates) with 'do no evil' (Google), paying specific attention to technology and safeguards.

CITP Luncheon Speaker Series:  Elana Zeide - Ethical Use of Big Data in Education
Education is increasingly big data-driven. Digitally-mediated education tools, social media data mining, and the Internet of Things generates a wealth of data about students’ actions both within and outside classrooms. Personalized learning platforms use detailed, real-time learner information to adjust instruction, assessment, and guidance automatically through adaptive structures and artificial intelligence. These algorithmic profiles can also serve as credentials in the place of traditional resumes and transcripts, and, in doing so, provide more access to better quality, lower-cost education and socioeconomic opportunity. This presentation examines the rise, promise, and perils of big data-driven education. New technologies and infrastructures may have unintended consequences that undermine the very goals reformers seek to achieve. As part of an emerging “scored society,” reliance on what I call “algorithmic credentials” also has important implications for society, the economy, and democracy. Bio: Elana Zeide is an associate research scholar at CITP, a visiting fellow at Yale Univeristy’s Information Society Project, an affiliate of New York University’s Information Law Institute and the Data & Society Research Institute, and an advisory board member of the Future of Privacy Forum. She works as attorney, scholar, and consultant focusing on student privacy, predictive analytics, and the proverbial permanent record in the age of big data. She examines the law, policies, and cultural norms emerging as education, and the rest of society, becomes increasingly data-driven. Zeide advises parents, educators, companies, and policymakers on student information practices in traditional schools, virtual learning environments, and the commercial sphere. She also writes for both popular and academic publications, recently including a discussion of algorithmic profiling on Slate, an article examining student privacy regulation in the Drexel Law Review, and a chapter on legal requirement and best practices in the forthcoming Handbook of Learning Analytics & Educational Data Mining. Zeide graduated from Yale University and New York University’s School of Law. She subsequently worked as a litigation associate at Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLC, a legal analyst at Bloomberg L.P., and a visiting professor at Yale University, where she taught courses on Free Speech and the First Amendment before opening her own privacy and technology law practice. Prior to becoming an attorney, Zeide was a journalist and pop culture columnist in London and New York, and earned a Master of Fine Arts in Nonfiction Writing from Columbia University’s School of the Arts. She believes she is the only person to have both reported for and legally represented The National Enquirer.

Kate Hennessy - Repatriation, Digital Media, and Culture in the Virtual Museum
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies (SLAIS). Many Canadian First Nations and Aboriginal organizations are using digital media to revitalize their languages and assert control over the representation of their cultures. At the same time, museums, academic institutions, and individuals are digitizing their ethnographic collections to make them accessible to originating communities. In this presentation I will explore how the term "virtual repatriation" is being applied to the digitization and return of heritage to Aboriginal communities, and draw attention to the opportunities, challenges, and critiques associated with digitization, circulation, and remix of Aboriginal cultural heritage. I will discuss recent projects including the collaborative production of a Virtual Museum of Canada exhibit with the Doig River First Nation, a Dane-zaa community in northeastern British Columbia, and a current collaborative production of a virtual exhibit with members of the Inuvialuit community in the western Arctic and curators at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. I will show that while access to cultural heritage in digital collections can facilitate the articulation of intellectual property rights to digital cultural heritage----including the right to restrict circulation----it also amplifies the difficulty of enforcing those rights. Kate Hennessy is an Assistant Professor specializing in Media at Simon Fraser University's School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT). She has a PhD in Anthropology from the University of British Columbia and an MA in the Anthropology of Media from the University of London, School of Oriental and African Studies. As the director of the Making Culture Lab at SIAT, her research explores the role of digital technology in the documentation and safeguarding of cultural heritage, and in the mediation of culture, history, objects, and subjects in new forms. Her video and multimedia works investigate documentary methodologies to address Indigenous and settler histories of place and space. She is a founding member of the Ethnographic Terminalia Curatorial Collective, an international group exploring the borders of anthropological, curatorial, and artistic practice (http://ethnographicterminalia.org). As assistant editor of the journal Visual Anthropology Review, she designed its first multimedia volume. Her work has been published in journals such as American Indian Quarterly, Museum Anthropology Review, and Visual Anthropology Review. She was a Trudeau Foundation Scholar from 2006-2010, a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Graduate Scholar from 2005-2009, a Canadian Polar Commission Scholar in 2006-2007, and a Commonwealth Scholar in 2001-2002.

Facebook 10 year Challenge and Meng Wanzhou Vs. Canada Ep 24
The Podcast: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/tech-time/id1430129202 Facebook’s 10 Year Challenge is Just a Harmless Meme - Right? Recommended by Simon Légaré from Quebec City. Kate O’Neill on Wired Tweeted, “Me 10 years ago: probably would have played along with the profile picture aging meme going around on Facebook and Instagram. Me now: ponders how all this data could be mined to train facial recognition”. Tweet gained notice. Counterpoint - People already have access to your face from profile pictures (aren’t private and time stamped). Point - If you were doing a study, you could mine the information looking for timestamps (not always taken near the date posted, sometimes profile pictures are not even human) or you could just ask people to do it for you. “Thanks to this meme there’s now a very large dataset of carefully curated photos of people from roughly 10 years ago and now”. Facebook denies being behind the 10 year challenge. It is, “a user-generated meme that went viral on its own”. The big question, How has our data been used? Cambridge Analytica - 70 m facebook users. Facial recognition (Apple & some Android “will be more”). How can it be used? Good - Help with finding missing children. Mundane - Targeted Advertising (age, ethnicity, gender guessing). Coupled with other metadata (Location, purchase history, political responses) creepy. Remember Minority Report? Bad? - Insurance assessments, health care. Amazon introduced real-time facial recognition services to law enforcement, government agencies. Privacy issues. Not only track people with records, could track others (protesters). American Civil Liberties Union asked Amazon to stop and so did many shareholders. “The broader message… humans are the richest data sources for most of the technology emerging in the world… our data is the fuel that makes businesses smarter and more profitable”. Update on Huawei, Meng Wanzhou’s arrest & Canada China Relationship. Background Meng Wanzhou CFO of Huawei was arrested in BC in December at the request of the United States for violating sanctions against Iran. China responded by arresting two Canadians (one a former diplomat working for a non profit group looking at Human Rights violations in China) for “security reasons”. China also quickly retried a Canadian sentenced to 15 years in jail for drug trafficking. He now has been sentenced to death. This week: Chineses Diplomat threatens Canada for going to allies for support. Hua Chunying - Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman: Canada’s allies can be counted on 10 fingers. What if they are the largest economies in the world? EU has 28 countries alone. Personal attacks on Justin Trudeau, “Laughing Stock, irresponsible” Only Canadians can say that about our PM! China Threatens if Canada bans Huawei from 5G Lu Shaye China’s Ambassador to Canada warned of “repercussions” if Canada banned Huawei. Accuses Canada of White Supremacy. 140 former diplomats, scholars and Scientists send open letter to President Xi (shi) Jinping. Calling China’s actions “extremely concerning” Jan 30th deadline for the US to submit extradition paperwork. This morning, “Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying said, “Both Canada and the US are abusing the extradition system”. “Canada has made a grave mistake”. “China will respond to US actions” (if the US files extradition papers).. Canadians are not impressed. Highest rated comments from Canadian readers on CBCs new articles. I wanted to give Huawei the benefit of the doubt that they are not beholden to the Chinese government, but along comes China threatening repercussions if Ottawa bans Huawei. China just made clear its relation with Huawei. Time to look for another company to deliver 5G. Just a few days ago the Chinese were telling Canada to mind their own business and not tell them how to run their country and now they are threatening us to use Huawei or else? Wow, just wow. Given all that’s happened over the last few months, the probability that I will ever buy anything with a Huawei sticker on it is exactly 0.0.

Ethical Issues in Data Science
McGill University Centre of Genomics & Policy Director Dr. Bartha Maria Knoppers present a webinar titled, "Ethical Issues in Data Science." Abstract Big Data discussions often center on related privacy and security issues, to the neglect of the importance of other ethical issues in data-intensive research. The privacy protections in the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation, for example, although essential, must be balanced with the right of everyone to share in scientific advancement and its benefits, which originates in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and has become the foundation of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health's Framework for Responsible Sharing of Genomic and Health-Related Data. In this context, it is worthwhile examining whether the hitherto antinomy between privacy and security concerns and the benefits of data sharing still remains, or are health data governance frameworks, such as the 2017 OECD Recommendation on Health Data Governance, and other policies beginning to address and assuage such concerns? Presenter Bartha Maria Knoppers, PhD (Comparative Medical Law), is full professor, Canada Research Chair in law and medicine and Director of the Centre of Genomics and Policy, Faculty of Medicine, Human Genetics, at McGill University. She is a member of the Scientific Steering Committee of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (2009-present ), and Co-Chair of the Regulatory and Ethics Working Group of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health. She holds four doctorates Honoris Causa and she is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the Hastings Center (bioethics), the Canadian Academy Health Sciences (CAHS), and of the Royal Society of Canada. She is also an Officer of the Order of Canada and of Quebec.

There Is No Certainty
Part 1 of the 2019 #UAScience lecture series #SearchingForCertainty Not every scientific study gets the answer right. Answers we get from “mining” existing datasets are particularly vulnerable to confounding factors. In contrast, gold-standard experiments, where subjects are randomly assigned to different groups, are an extremely reliable way to get closer to the truth. Given this difference, how much should we rely on mining #BigData to answer scientific questions? Are randomized experiments necessarily too difficult, expensive or unethical to conduct, or are these fixable problems? Does the human desire for certainty predispose us to an irrational dislike of randomized experiments, one that might be holding science back?

Closing the gaps in health outcomes: Alternative paths forward
Diagnosing the causes of mounting US health care costs and the disappointing health outcomes they produce is only the first step in finding better health policy solutions. Several promising lines of scholarly research suggest that key factors — including socioeconomic status, early childhood development, cognitive skills, personality traits, and behavioral economics — may be important determinants of long-term health status and should therefore be factored into policy solutions. In many health "reform" discussions, we hear the same promises that are likely to produce the same unsatisfying results. Please join us for a broader exploration of targeted interventions that provide real promise for reducing health disparities, limiting or delaying the onset of chronic health conditions, and improving the performance of the US health care system.

Data Wrangling Normalization & Preprocessing: Part II Text
Dr. Sanda Harabagiu from University of Texas at Dallas presents a lecture on "Data Wrangling, Normalization & Preprocessing: Part II Text." Lecture Abstract Data wrangling is defined as the process of mapping data from an unstructured format to another format that enables automated processing. State of the art deep learning systems require vast amounts of annotated data to achieve high performance, and hence, this is often referred to as a Big Data problem. Many decision support systems in healthcare can be successfully automated if such big data resources existed. Therefore, automated data wrangling is crucial to the application of deep learning to healthcare. In this talk, we will discuss data wrangling challenges for physiological signals commonly found in healthcare, such as electroencephalography (EEG) signals. For signal and image data to be useful in the development of machine learning systems, identification and localization of events in time and/or space plays an important role. Normalization of data with respect to annotation standards, recording environments, equipment manufacturers and even standards for clinical practice, must be accomplished for technology to be clinically relevant. We will specifically discuss our experiences in the development of a large clinical corpus of EEG data, the annotation of key events for which there is low inter-rater agreement (such as seizures), and the development of technology that can mitigate the variability found in such clinical data resources. In a companion talk to be given on December 2, data wrangling of unstructured text, such as that found in electronic medical records, will be discussed.

Daniel Levitin: "Weaponized Lies: How to Think Critically in the Post-Truth Era" | Talks at Google
From The New York Times bestselling author of THE ORGANIZED MIND (https://goo.gl/9d0AXx) and THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON MUSIC (https://goo.gl/lWvwbe), a primer to the critical thinking that is more necessary now than ever. We are bombarded with more information each day than our brains can process—especially in election season. It's raining bad data, half-truths, and even outright lies. New York Times bestselling author Daniel J. Levitin shows how to recognize misleading announcements, statistics, graphs, and written reports revealing the ways lying weasels can use them. It's becoming harder to separate the wheat from the digital chaff. How do we distinguish misinformation, pseudo-facts, distortions, and outright lies from reliable information? Levitin groups his field guide into two categories—statistical infomation and faulty arguments—ultimately showing how science is the bedrock of critical thinking. Infoliteracy means understanding that there are hierarchies of source quality and bias that variously distort our information feeds via every media channel, including social media. We may expect newspapers, bloggers, the government, and Wikipedia to be factually and logically correct, but they so often aren't. We need to think critically about the words and numbers we encounter if we want to be successful at work, at play, and in making the most of our lives. This means checking the plausibility and reasoning—not passively accepting information, repeating it, and making decisions based on it. Readers learn to avoid the extremes of passive gullibility and cynical rejection. Levitin's charming, entertaining, accessible guide can help anyone wake up to a whole lot of things that aren't so. And catch some lying weasels in their tracks!

Capitalism and Millennials: The 2018 James Q. Wilson Lecture
For our 2018 James Q. Wilson Lecture, economist Edward Glaeser (Harvard University) addresses the challenges of selling capitalism to skeptical millennials and even younger Americans. Young Americans are moving steadily to the left. A recent Harvard University poll found that 51% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 do not support capitalism. The trend is visible on the ground, too. Phenomena driven largely by millennials—such as Occupy Wall Street, the Bernie Sanders campaign, and, most recently, the wave of Democratic Socialist candidates for state and federal office—are all real-world signs of an intellectual shift among the young. For 15 years, James Q. Wilson, a former professor at Harvard University and UCLA who passed away in March 2012, delivered an enormously popular annual lecture for the Manhattan Institute. We're proud to continue the series in his name. Learn more: https://www.manhattan-institute.org/html/capitalism-and-young-11371.html

12. Human and Environmental Impacts
Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) Until recently, the world population has been growing faster than exponentially. Although the growth rate has slowed somewhat, there are about 80 million more people each year and about 3 billion more will be added by 2050 (a 50% increase). Population will probably increase more beyond that. Such growth is unprecedented and we cannot predict its long-term effects. The environmental impact of this population increase is bound to be astronomic. Large populations engender two problems: over-consumption in the rich countries which leads to environmental misery, and under-consumption in the poor countries which leads to human misery. People living in abject poverty ($1 per day) don't limit their fertility. Factory jobs in poor countries pay double that, ~$2 per day. For population to stabilize, income must rise. If population is to increase by 50%, income needs to double -- we are looking at a tripling of the world economy. The environment is currently overstressed. Can it survive a tripling of the economy? 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction 13:47 - Chapter 2. Population Explosion 28:44 - Chapter 3. Population and Over Consumption 38:58 - Chapter 4.
