Chandra Osborn, PhD and MPH & guest Arielle Trzcinski of ForresterRecorded: Aug 12 202059 mins
Mental well-being is center stage in the wake of an ongoing pandemic, social unrest, and the strained economy. From essential workers being mentally and physically taxed to home-bound parents juggling work and caregiving, the need for mental health services has never been more critical.
The prevalence of depression and anxiety has skyrocketed, but there is no aggregated, one-size-fits-all solution to address these new challenges at an individual or global level. Mental health challenges are unique from one person to the next, as are the reasons for seeking or not seeking treatment. Shared and individual barriers (e.g. stigma, denial, lack of social proof, competing demands, and more) have and continue to prevent employees from using employer-sponsored mental health services, even when they need it most.
Companies must reconcile factors like availability, privacy, and cost with the individualized needs and engagement challenges of their employees. Employees, in turn, want leadership to be responsive, sensitive, and proactive when it comes to removing barriers around mental wellness and accessing services. So, how can a company take care of their employees while ensuring the continuity of their business? Where do they start?
Join Lirio's Chief Behavioral Officer, Dr. Chandra Osborn, PhD, MPH and guest speaker Arielle Trzcinski of Forrester Research, as they discuss current trends in employer mental health, the particular challenges of employee burnout, how to match resources to dynamic demand, and how to engage individual employees on the path to mental wellness.
Ann Rockley and Val SwisherRecorded: Aug 12 202064 mins
The globalization of medical devices content is very complex. There are numerous changes that must be tracked and used correctly such as units of measure, severity of alerts (warning vs. precaution), use of symbols, regulated statements, brand marks (trademark vs. registered trademark), drug or device names, image changes, Health Authority specific requirements and many more.
It’s not just a question of language, the language may be the same but there can be multiple permutations based on health authorities, region, and country.
Most companies track the variations with massive Excel spreadsheets which are time-consuming and error prone. Language service providers may have their own method of tracking these variants and the publishing vendor, responsible for the InDesign files, may have yet another!
This session provides best practices for managing these complexities identifying how the variants can best be controlled using structured content in content creation, content management, translation, and production.
Attendees will learn about the need to:
— Create a structured content strategy
— Develop a content reuse strategy
— Create a content management repository that supports these complexities
— Integrate translation workflows
— Ensure quality
— Automate publishing regardless of the language and type of information (e.g., IFU vs package label)

The Australian Open Banking changes require that banks share consumer data in a machine-readable way so consumers can safely access and transfer their banking data to trusted parties. It's part of the move toward an “Open API Economy,” where services are exposed as APIs. Open Banking is part of the larger Australian Consumer Data Right (CDR) which represents massive opportunities for those able to respond, as well as huge risks for noncompliance.
In this webinar we will explore how financial organizations need to react to help ensure compliance, deliver transparency, and adopt new business models. As part of this, we'll show what you need to look for in a unified company data management solution; one with integrated data privacy & risk analysis, data governance & master data management, data virtualization, and API management.

Insurance and credit lending are highly regulated industries that have relied heavily on mathematical modeling for decades. In order to provide explainable results for their models, data scientists and statisticians in both industries relied heavily on generalized linear models (GLMs). However, new machine learning algorithms like GBMs are not only more sophisticated estimators of risk, but due to a Nobel-laureate breakthrough known as Shapley values, they are now seemingly just as interpretable as traditional GLMs. More nuanced risk estimation means less payouts and write-offs for policy and credit issuers, but it also means a broader group of customers can participate in mainstream insurance and credit markets.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- The Advantages of Machine Learning vs. Linear Models
- Why you should think about the AI shift in perspective
- How to move to new ML Methods (e.g. GBM)

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and the concept of Digital Health, specifically, connectivity between patients, clinicians, machines and care environments, is emerging as a powerful tool in addressing some of healthcare biggest challenges. Recent advances in the development of Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) for reliable monitoring of assets, people and processes in the delivery of care have overcome many barriers to both their implementation and adoption. RTLS allows reliable and accurate monitoring and tracking of critical assets and resources and importantly makes possible the application of real time Operational Analytics to the delivery of care. Such analysis fundamentally addresses better patient outcomes and cost management by optimizing patient flow, staffing, scheduling, asset tracking, resource utilization and greater personalization of care. Additionally, real time location data used with advanced Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence can generate critical insights and information about patient care delivery that previously were hidden or were difficult if not impossible to derive.

Erin LeDell, Chief Machine Learning Scientist at H2O.aiAug 13 20206:00 pmUTC60 mins
Automatic Machine Learning (AutoML) is a subfield of machine learning which aims to automate the training & tuning of machine learning models. One of the main goals of an AutoML tool is to train the “best” model possible in the least amount of computation time, with zero/minimal configuration by the user. AutoML tools reduce the expertise required for practitioners to train powerful machine learning models, which has expanded and accelerated the application of machine learning to problems in both academic research and industry. AutoML greatly speeds up the workflow and efficiency of even the most experienced data scientist.
As automation and use of machine learning increases, in particular with the proliferation of open source AutoML tools, there’s an increased risk in misuse of, or harm by, machine learning models used in real world applications. In order to reduce the risk of harmful models being deployed, machine learning tools, and especially AutoML tools, can offer easy-to-use or automated interpretability and algorithmic fairness methods that can be used to evaluate and probe machine learning models. Interpretability and fairness methods should always be applied to machine learning models before they are deployed into production where they can make or influence important decisions affecting people’s lives.
In this session, you will learn about:
- Automated Machine Learning and open source H2O AutoML
- Interpretability methods for H2O models
- Algorithmic fairness (disparate impact) for H2O models
- Demo using U.S. Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data

Are you running legacy Windows or SQL servers that are no longer supported? While it’s critical these systems get upgraded, many businesses with legacy .NET platforms are challenged with tight dependencies, missing installation media or code, and/or limited in-house expertise. This provides an opportunity for companies to consider migrating to the cloud and updating their .NET stack.
Join us for a virtual event where we’ll address the best practices for migrating Microsoft workloads to AWS, dispel some of the misconceptions around migration barriers, and provide the best path forward as you seek to migrate and modernize your legacy applications to improve cost-effectiveness, reduce risk, and establish the foundation for future innovation and growth.
What we’ll cover:
- How the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 end-of-support events impact your business
- Common challenges with legacy .NET applications and how to mitigate them
- Identifying the best migration paths for reducing risks and cutting costs, while future-proofing your business
- Tools, assessments, and programs provided by AWS to accelerate your Microsoft Workloads migration and modernization, including licensing options, EMP, and AWS App2Container
- Real-world examples of how customers are modernizing their .NET applications with cloud native services
Live production operations are no longer the complex on-site circus they once were. Most live events – including sports, music concerts and entertainment events have now adopted leaner methods provided by remote production technology.
In the post-Covid world, it has become even more important to embrace this technology. Distributed workforces have added another layer of cloud and security considerations over low-latency connectivity.
These aspects combine to create the next-gen live production process and make it remote, virtualised and distributed.

Modern web applications make extensive use of third-party scripts and open source libraries to speed up innovation and be responsive to business needs. Studies show that up to 70% of the scripts running on a typical website are third-party, which in turn call other scripts creating an extensive digital supply chain. These scripts and libraries introduce Shadow Code into the application which alters its security posture and vastly expands the attack surface. The recent succession of digital skimming and Magecart attacks on the client-side of web applications are one such consequence of Shadow Code.
Paradigms like CI/CD, DevOps and DevSecOps enable a faster app development pipeline but make it harder to meet information security standards and data privacy requirements. However, security and innovation do not need to be at odds.
In this session you will learn about:
-Shadow Code and the negative impacts to your applications
-Findings from a 2020 Survey on scope and impacts of Shadow Code in web applications
-Strategies to manage Shadow Code risk using a trust but verify model

Ansys Sherlock automated design analysis software is the only Reliability Physics/Physics of Failure (PoF)-based electronics design analysis software that provides fast and accurate life predictions for electronic hardware at the component, board and system levels in early design stages. A unique, powerful capability of Sherlock is its revolutionary ability to rapidly convert electronic CAD (ECAD) files into CFD and FEA models with accurate geometries and material properties. Through its powerful parsing engine (capable of importing Gerber, ODB and IPC2581 files, etc.) and embedded libraries containing over 500,000 parts, Sherlock reduces pre-processing time from days to minutes and automates workflows through its integration with Ansys Icepak, Ansys Mechanical and Ansys Workbench.
With its extensive parts/materials libraries, Sherlock automatically identifies your files and imports your parts list, then builds an FEA model of your circuit board in minutes. It also produces a holistic analysis that is critical to developing reliable electronics products. It enables designers to simulate each environment, failure mechanism and assembly that a product might encounter over its lifespan.
Join PADT's Systems Application & Support Engineer Josh Stout for an introduction to this powerful tool along with a look at what new features and updates have been added in the Ansys 2020 R2 version.
