Visually Impaired Turn to Smartphones to See Their World



Luis Perez loves taking photographs. He shoots mostly on an iPhone, snapping gorgeous pictures of sunsets, vintage cars, old buildings and cute puppies. But when he arrives at a photo shoot, people are often startled when he pulls out a long white cane.




In addition to being a professional photographer, Mr. Perez is almost blind.




“With the iPhone I am able to use the same technology as everyone else, and having a product that doesn’t have a stigma that other technologies do has been really important to me,” said Mr. Perez, who is also an advocate for blind people and speaks regularly at conferences about the benefits of technology for people who cannot see. “Now, even if you’re blind, you can still take a photo.”




Smartphones and tablets, with their flat glass touch screens and nary a texture anywhere, may not seem like the best technological innovation for people who cannot see. But advocates for the blind say the devices could be the biggest assistive aid to come along since Braille was invented in the 1820s.

IBM uses Big Data to predict outbreaks of Dengue fever and Malaria



IBM has teamed up with university researchers to use big data and analytics to predict the outbreak of deadly diseases such as Dengue fever and Malaria.


The research is aimed at understanding the spread of diseases in real-time in order to better deploy public health resources to combat the spread of infectious diseases




But rather than just predicting the spread of a disease, the researchers are applying analytics from large data sets to see how changes in rainfall, temperature, and even soil acidity can dramatically affect the populations of wild animals and insects that carry the infectious diseases. They’re also merging that information with other data, like airport and highway traffic, to further understand outbreaks.
