  • Preparing Your Content for the Future: Bots, Machine Learning and AI
    Preparing Your Content for the Future: Bots, Machine Learning and AI Steffen Frederiksen, DitaExchange Recorded: Nov 16 2017 59 mins
    Are you ready for how AI, machine learning, and other future technology will affect content development?

    The database revolution changed our relationship to data, making it reusable for different target audiences, contexts and situations. It also made it ready for flexible delivery to different apps and across many different platforms and media. But somehow these outcomes never fully transferred over to content. How can we bring this same revolution to content and win the same kind of enormous improvements that would prepare us for the future?

    Structured content management enables organizations to store, organize and build their content so that pieces are easily discoverable, reusable, reconfigurable and adaptable. It provides the perfect solution for constructing large, complex documents, but also for delivering modular content to chatbots, portal sites, and mobile apps. But, more importantly, it is also key to future-proofing your content for emerging technological trends.

    Join Paul Perrotta, sitting in for Scott Abel, and his special guest, Steffen Frederiksen, Founder and CSO of DitaExchange, for this free one-hour webinar. Attendees will learn what structured content management is and how it works. They will understand what benefits structured content can have for writers, project managers, business owners, IT departments and content consumers. They will also learn how to prepare their content to be fed into new technologies with practical examples from the field.

    SciVal API :: What is it & how can I use it? Martin Edling Andersson (Senior SciVal Product Manager) and Joe Riess (Principal Software Engineer) Dec 7 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The SciVal API allows you to programmatically retrieve metrics for use in your own software applications.

    Join Martin Edling Andersson (Senior SciVal Product Manager) & Joe Riess (Principal Software Engineer) for an introduction to the new SciVal API, what it is, where it can be accessed and how it can be utilized. Joe, who built the SciVal API, will give a demonstration of how you can create a small application using the SciVal API and Scopus APIs together.

    An API stands for Application Programming Interface, and it provides a way for programs to talk to one another. The SciVal API gives access to a comprehensive basket of metrics for researchers (Scopus Author profiles) and all 8,500+ institutions available in SciVal.

    The API returns data machine-readable format that enables software, rather than humans using the scival.com platform, to use the data. Consequently, this allows developers to write programs that automatically extract metrics from SciVal periodically, and use that data in their Institutional Repository systems, websites and for richer visualizations in tools like Tableau.

    Tracking and Controlling Technical Documentation Projects Barry Saiff, Saiff Solutions Dec 14 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ten years ago, The Content Wrangler published details about a survey that found most documentation managers don’t use metrics as a performance measure. Has that changed? Have documentation managers stuck to their old, metric-less ways, or have they all become “quants” in 10 years’ time?

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guest, Barry Saiff, CEO of Saiff Solutions. Barry is the author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Technical Communications Leaders, and a 30-year veteran documentation leader. He will lead a discussion about the ins and outs of calculating costs and return on investment for documentation projects.

    Attendees will learn from the results of a real-world case study of a technical documentation project that required technical writing, technical illustrations, and a couple of key metrics: cost per page and pages per date. You’ll learn how difficult it was for the team to track, calculate, and report these seemingly simple numbers and how they overcame these challenges. You’ll discover the connection between measurement and process design and learn valuable lessons that should help you avoid getting lost in the weeds of data- and cost-tracking.

  • The Advent of Flying Cars and the Road Ahead
    The Advent of Flying Cars and the Road Ahead Joe Praveen, Industry Analyst, Benny Daniel, Vice President - Consulting, Mobility, Frost & Sullivan Jan 24 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Governments across the globe are addressing the growing menace of traffic congestion. One way to address this issue in the future is to make use of the underutilized domestic airspace for mobility. The only vehicle available now for urban air mobility is the helicopter. Unfortunately, it is bulky, expensive and noisy, making it unsuitable for mainstream urban air mobility use. Thus, a vehicle that can be used for aerial mobility in the future is needed. The flying car space is hectic, with new players from various industries entering the race to build flying cars. Funding has also been brisk, with several companies raising funds or being acquired by established players from the automotive industry.
