Smart Dubai targets managers and analysts in Big Data Analytics workshops

  • Led by Dr Mihail Barbosu, Professor at the School of Mathematical Sciences and Director of the Data and Predictive Analytics Center at RIT New York, the Big Data Analytics Workshop for Managers was intended for senior executives looking to incorporate Big Data and employ data science tools in developing and…
  • On day one, participants were introduced to the concepts of Big Data and data science, as well as their importance in management and leadership.
  • They went on to explore ways to align data and data science tools to the organisations needs, in addition to learning about various applications for Big Data concepts that can be applied to several industry sectors including agriculture, business, consumer applications, education, energy management, government, industry, media, healthcare, and smart…
  • On the other hand, the Big Data Analytics Workshop for Analysts kicked off its first day introducing participants to the main statistical methods used to examine Big Data, while the remaining two days were dedicated to exploring the concept, applications and advantages of supervised and unsupervised learning.
  • Smart Dubai has long embraced Big Data practices in its strategies, which seek to not only promote the availability and openness of data, but also to train personnel at key Government entities, sharpening their data analysis skills to, ultimately, improve data-driven decision-making at the Government level.

Embedded/IoT Linux for Red-Blue Teams

  • This course is a deep dive into Embedded/IoT firmware where we will start from the very basics – understand the multistage boot process, the kernel and root filesystem, how to build them with a custom toolchain and how they can be compromized with user and kernel mode backdoors/rootkits.
  • x kernel for this course on an ARM architecture board.
  • A non-exhaustive list of topics to be covered include: – – We highly recommend watching the Course Introduction video to learn more.

Know your smart devices, they can be cyber villains

  • On the evening of Friday, October 24, 2008 Richard C Schaeffer Jr, the NSA’s top computer systems protection officer was in a briefing with US President George W Bush when an aide passed him a note.
  • The attack was unexpected because classified military systems are not connected to outside networks.
  • If a supplier can get a secret payload onto a USB stick, then there is no safe period in which a USB is a good choice.
  • Supply chain attacks have recently been implicated in the disastrous failure rate of the North Korean missile programme.

Fidelity’s VC arm betting on China’s big data revolution

  • A partner at Fidelity’s Eight Roads, an early Alibaba investor, explains why it participated in a series-B round of funding for Shanghai-based Kyligence.
  • As China tries to double-down on leading-edge technologies with its ‘Made in China 2025’ blueprint, Fidelity International too wants in on the action.
  • Through its proprietary investment arm Eight Roads Ventures, the Boston-based US asset manager last week led a $15 million series-B round of funding for Shanghai-basedstartup Kyligence.
  • And according to Joe Chang, a partner at Eight Roads specialising in enterprise IT, it forms part of Fidelity’s regional…

Big Data analysis identifies new cancer risk genes

  • Now, three researchers at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) in Barcelona, led by the ICREA Research Professor Ben Lehner, have developed a new statistical method to identify cancer predisposition genes from tumour sequencing data.
  • We developed a method that allows us to systematically identify these genes from existing cancer genome datasets explains Solip Park, first author of the study and Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral researcher at the CRG.
  • The method allows researchers to find risk variants without a control sample, meaning that they do not need to compare cancer patients to groups of healthy people, Now we have a powerful tool to detect new cancer predisposition genes and, consequently, to contribute to improving cancer diagnosis and prevention in…
  • We applied our method to the genome sequences of more than 10,000 cancer patients with 30 different tumour types and identified known and new possible cancer predisposition genes that have the potential to contribute substantially to cancer risk, says Ben Lehner, principal investigator of the study.
  • We combined data from many different projects and by applying a new computational method were able to identify important cancer genes that were not identified by the original studies.
