Mastering Podcasting: How to Start, Grow, and M...

Basically, a podcast is like an online form of talk radio. The only difference is that you have certain advantages with a podcast, such as the ability to listen whenever you want, instead of a certain time or day.While podcasts are somewhat like radio talk shows, they are very different at the same time - like the difference between YouTube videos and television. A podcast is best described as a series of episodes stored in audio files - the same type as the ones you use for music in your smartphone or laptop. Just like any other radio or television talk show, a podcast is usually based on a theme -think gaming, horror, entertainment, sports, politics, etc. With each episode, a subject in that theme is tackled. You can choose to subscribe to the podcast (typically free) or listen to a specific subject. One popular podcast is Pod Saves America, which tackles political news progressively. The hosts are Daniel Pfeiffer, Jon Lovett, Tommy Vietor, and Jon Favreau. They frequently invite experts as guests to give their opinions. The episodes are mainly centered on political issues such as tax reform or healthcare. Another popular podcast is the Critical Role.For more information visit financierpro.com and Financier Facebook page. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeffrey A. Hering.

Companies like Facebook and Twitter have redefined social interaction. But what if "machines" like automobiles, bicycles, health monitors, appliances, instruments, and anything else you can connect to the Internet, could all become members of your social network, collect data you care about, and feed it back to you at just the right time? Nike+ is already doing this for your body, but every major industry, from healthcare to cars to home construction, is now building sensors and digital connectivity into their next generation of products. Companies like Ford, Pepsi, Verizon, and Procter and Gamble are also using "social machines" to reach new markets, improve brand/market awareness, and increase revenues. Social Machines is the first book for business people, marketers, product developers, and technologists, explaining how this trend will change our world, how your business will benefit, and how to create connected products that customers love.Explains how smart phones and tablets enable Social MachinesDescribes how digital technology is being "baked in" to the most unlikely new products - even wheelchairsArticulates how the "Internet of Things" is becoming social - and why that’s the foundation for powerful new business models In the very near future, every great new product will be social. The next stage of interaction between people and our environment is upon us. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Whitten.

The Patient Will See You Now (eBook, ePUB)

The essential guide by one of America's leading doctors to how digital technology enables all of us to take charge of our health A trip to the doctor is almost a guarantee of misery. You'll make an appointment months in advance. You'll probably wait for several hours until you hear "the doctor will see you now"-but only for fifteen minutes! Then you'll wait even longer for lab tests, the results of which you'll likely never see, unless they indicate further (and more invasive) tests, most of which will probably prove unnecessary (much like physicals themselves). And your bill will be astronomical.In The Patient Will See You Now, Eric Topol, one of the nation's top physicians, shows why medicine does not have to be that way. Instead, you could use your smartphone to get rapid test results from one drop of blood, monitor your vital signs both day and night, and use an artificially intelligent algorithm to receive a diagnosis without having to see a doctor, all at a small fraction of the cost imposed by our modern healthcare system.The change is powered by what Topol calls medicine's "Gutenberg moment." Much as the printing press took learning out of the hands of a priestly class, the mobile internet is doing the same for medicine, giving us unprecedented control over our healthcare. With smartphones in hand, we are no longer beholden to an impersonal and paternalistic system in which "doctor knows best." Medicine has been digitized, Topol argues; now it will be democratized. Computers will replace physicians for many diagnostic tasks, citizen science will give rise to citizen medicine, and enormous data sets will give us new means to attack conditions that have long been incurable. Massive, open, online medicine, where diagnostics are done by Facebook-like comparisons of medical profiles, will enable real-time, real-world research on massive populations. There's no doubt the path forward will be complicated: the medical establishment will resist these changes, and digitized medicine inevitably raises serious issues surrounding privacy. Nevertheless, the result-better, cheaper, and more human health care-will be worth it.Provocative and engrossing, The Patient Will See You Now is essential reading for anyone who thinks they deserve better health care. That is, for all of us.

"Mesmerizing & fascinating..." --The Seattle Post-Intelligencer "The Freakonomics of big data." --Stein Kretsinger, founding executive of Advertising.com Award-winning Used by over 30 universities Translated into 9 languages An introduction for everyone. In this rich, fascinating -- surprisingly accessible -- introduction, leading expert Eric Siegel reveals how predictive analytics works, and how it affects everyone every day. Rather than a "how to" for hands-on techies, the book serves lay readers and experts alike by covering new case studies and the latest state-of-the-art techniques. Prediction is booming. It reinvents industries and runs the world. Companies, governments, law enforcement, hospitals, and universities are seizing upon the power. These institutions predict whether you're going to click, buy, lie, or die. Why? For good reason: predicting human behavior combats risk, boosts sales, fortifies healthcare, streamlines manufacturing, conquers spam, optimizes social networks, toughens crime fighting, and wins elections. How? Prediction is powered by the world's most potent, flourishing unnatural resource: data. Accumulated in large part as the by-product of routine tasks, data is the unsalted, flavorless residue deposited en masse as organizations churn away. Surprise! This heap of refuse is a gold mine. Big data embodies an extraordinary wealth of experience from which to learn. Predictive Analytics unleashes the power of data. With this technology, the computer literally learns from data how to predict the future behavior of individuals. Perfect prediction is not possible, but putting odds on the future drives millions of decisions more effectively, determining whom to call, mail, investigate, incarcerate, set up on a date, or medicate. In this lucid, captivating introduction -- now in its Revised and Updated edition -- former Columbia University professor and Predictive Analytics World founder Eric Siegel reveals the power and perils of prediction: What type of mortgage risk Chase Bank predicted before the recession. Predicting which people will drop out of school, cancel a subscription, or get divorced before they even know it themselves. Why early retirement predicts a shorter life expectancy and vegetarians miss fewer flights. Five reasons why organizations predict death -- including one health insurance company. How U.S. Bank and Obama for America calculated -- and Hillary for America 2016 plans to calculate -- the way to most strongly persuade each individual. Why the NSA wants all your data: machine learning supercomputers to fight terrorism. How IBM's Watson computer used predictive modeling to answer questions and beat the human champs on TV's Jeopardy! How companies ascertain untold, private truths -- how Target figures out you're pregnant and Hewlett-Packard deduces you're about to quit your job. How judges and parole boards rely on crime-predicting computers to decide how long convicts remain in prison. 182 examples from Airbnb, the BBC, Citibank, ConEd, Facebook, Ford, Google, the IRS, LinkedIn, Match.com, MTV, Netflix, PayPal, Pfizer, Spotify, Uber, UPS, Wikipedia, and more. How does predictive analytics work? This jam-packed book satisfies by demystifying the intriguing science under the hood. For future hands-on practitioners pursuing a career in the field, it sets a strong foundation, delivers the prerequisite knowledge, and whets your appetite for more. A truly omnipresent science, predictive analytics constantly affects our daily lives. Whether you are a consumer of it -- or consumed by it -- get a handle on the power of Predictive Analytics.

Although information technology provides us many ways to better ourselves, it has also significantly increased the complexity of our lives. Everywhere we turn, there is more data. Data about our friends and families. Data from applications we use to conduct business. And data about the hundreds of thousands of events happening around the world every second. This explosion of data, along with empowering us to make better decisions and stay closer connected to each other, has also created problems with (1.) data consumption and information gathering, (2.) effective collaboration, (3.) measurement of the effectiveness and processes, (4.) social integration and engagement. In many aspects of our lives (e.g. Healthcare, Music industry, Design of machinery etc.), additional technologies such as semantic and social media, have helped provide structure to the information. Whether it s through collaborative tools like Sharepoint for our business lives or powerful social networks like Facebook in our personal lives, these technologies give us a way to make sense of all the data. But in some areas, such as public relations and journalism, these tools have been unable to keep pace with the amount of information.
