  • Radiosurgery Now: a patient-centered approach to managing brain metastases
    Radiosurgery Now: a patient-centered approach to managing brain metastases
    Dr. Dheerendra Prasad Recorded: Apr 18 2019 60 mins
    The increasing number of diagnoses of brain metastases in asymptomatic patients – as a result of screening MRIs – has created the need for both durable control and prevention of cognitive decline in patients who are expected to have increasing median survivals. Since the mainstay of their therapy is systemic management, “Radiosurgery Now” represents the idea of immediate radiosurgery with the intent of avoiding interruption of systemic management.

    This webinar will discuss the impact of delay in radiosurgery on tumour growth and the benefits of repeat radiosurgery for the long-term preservation of cognitive function. The linear and robust rapid workflow of the Leksell Gamma Knife® Icon™ is ideally suited to this concept.

  • Personalized T-cell therapy against HBV infection & HBV-related HCC
    Personalized T-cell therapy against HBV infection & HBV-related HCC
    Professor Antonio Bertoletti, M.D. Program in Emerging Infectious Diseases, Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore Apr 25 2019 2:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Adoptive transfer of lymphocytes expressing engineered T cell receptors (TCRs) is a promising immunotherapeutic option which specifically targets antigens from viral-infected cells and tumors. Prof. Bertoletti and his team engineered a library of TCRs specific for different Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) antigens to generate a pool of HBV-specific TCR-T cells. These TCR-T cells have been shown to recognize HBV epitopes presented on infected hepatocytes and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells with HBV-DNA integration in both experimental models and selected patients with HBV-related HCC relapses. However, safety concerns on possible irreversible structural and functional liver damage by cytotoxic TCR-T cells have limited the clinical usage of this immunotherapeutic approach. To overcome this limitation, they selected patients with HCC relapses after liver transplantation for immunotherapy since TCR-T cells only target HBV epitopes presented on HCC-relapses. Moreover, they also modified TCR-T cell production methods to reduce cytotoxicity and life span of TCR-T cell. These strategies that lead to the successful production of safe TCR-T cell effectors for immunotherapy of HBV infection and HBV-related cancers will be discussed in this webinar.

    Jeremy Meier and David Noh, both Undergraduate Students at Clemson University - An Investigation into Time Series Analysis
    Over the past several months, our team has worked closely with a dataset having roughly 16,000 total observations, recording both the date and balance in financial data. Focusing on individual accounts with a size of around 400 observations, our first goal was to compare statistical metrics and techniques used commonly in time series analysis on the given data sets. We dove deep into two major industry standard methods for understanding and predicting on a dataset. Using insights learned from these observations, we hope to better predict future balances in the dataset, as well as find any anomalies or misbehavior in the data in order to provide business value.

    Raising the bar on content moderation for social & gaming platforms
    Two Hat Security Apr 25 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Social networks today are undergoing a massive paradigm shift when it comes to content moderation. From tragic shootings broadcast live on Facebook, to YouTube removing comments on children's videos due to child predator concerns, social platforms are under fire from users, governments, and law enforcement to adopt better technology and strengthen their content moderation practices.

    It’s not all bad news. Business leaders have also realized that accurate, efficient moderation, coupled with positive reinforcement, can increase user retention and encourage growth.

    But who is responsible for enforcing these policies and practices? How did hate speech, abuse, and extremism become the "cost of being online"? And how can like-minded businesses band together to raise the bar and make their social platforms engaging, safe for all users, and ultimately, more profitable?

    Join Two Hat CEO and founder Chris Priebe and veteran analyst and market influencer Brian Solis for an insightful talk about the changing landscape of online conversations and the role of content moderation. Social abuse and objectionable materials need no longer be the price of admission.

  • Hot vs Cold Data: Its Influence On Data Placement Decision & What to Do About It
    Hot vs Cold Data: Its Influence On Data Placement Decision & What to Do About It
    Augie Gonzalez, Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software Apr 25 2019 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The short half-life of data, quickly decaying from hot to warm to cold, governs how much you should spend on it throughout its stages.

    Humans are poorly equipped to track the rapid temperature changes, much less capable of reacting to it. Consequently, largely dormant data consumes precious space on expensive storage, blowing up disk capacity and spiraling up costs.

    In this webinar you’ll become acquainted with:
    •Machine learning (ML) techniques that sense data temperature variations in real-time
    •Artificial intelligence (AI) methods used to dynamically migrate data accordingly, between primary, secondary and cloud storage from different suppliers
    •Relative distribution of storage tiers necessary for optimum savings

  • Applying Low Frequency Raman to QbD in Pharmaceutical Development
    Applying Low Frequency Raman to QbD in Pharmaceutical Development
    John Wasylyk, Senior Principal Scientist at Bristol-Myers Squibb and James Carriere, Product Line Manager at Coherent Apr 26 2019 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Low frequency Raman spectroscopy has been used to study various polymorphs and can be applied to the design of crystallization control strategy. Extending the low frequency spectral region to include the fingerprint region, provides access to collective vibrations of molecules in the amorphous and crystalline states and yields valuable insight when differentiation of various forms is quintessential. Whether during process development or production, low frequency Raman bands provide greater sensitivity for detecting the onset of crystallization and has allowed differentiation of crystal types when multiple forms are possible. Applying this to Quality by Design (QbD) studies brings an increase in process understanding leading to developing optimal control strategy and avoid the many pitfalls that can occur when scaled-up to the production environment. A recent applications of in-line crystallization processes provided insight into establishing the ideal crystallization control parameters. The parameters evaluated include temperature, mixing rate, seed levels and solvent variable. In-line and off-line QbD studies demonstrated both ideal and non-ideal conditions, ultimately yielding critical process knowledge. As a results of our studies, low frequency Raman has proven to be a valuable tool for at-line and on-line monitoring of active pharmaceutical ingredient crystallization and paves the way for robust production in a large scale facility.
  • Nanoscale Raman and SPM characterization of heterogeneities in 2D materials
    Nanoscale Raman and SPM characterization of heterogeneities in 2D materials
    Dr Marc Chaigneau - AFM/Raman Product Manager Apr 29 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Two-dimensional semiconductors, specifically the broad class of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), have attracted significant attention in the research community in recent years due to the wealth of interesting and potentially applicable phenomena observed in these materials. In order to control the performance of devices based on TMDs, it is important to characterize their properties at the scale relevant to the corresponding application, which in most cases today corresponds to a few tens of nanometres.

    Conventional far-field photoluminescence (PL) and Raman imaging provide highly averaged information with spectral congestion. In contrast, the TEPL and TERS methods (tip-enhanced photoluminescence and tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy) performed with an AFM–Raman system, not limited by diffraction, provide substantial information related to the nanoscale optical properties of 2D materials with resolution down to a few nanometres.

    In this webinar, we report on the application of scanning-probe microscopy (SPM) cross-correlated with TERS and TEPL measurements. The techniques are used to image various TMD (MoS2, WS2, MoSe2, WSe2) alloys and heterostructures, revealing detailed nanoscale features and unexpected heterogeneities. These variations in the nanoscale optical and chemical properties, correlated with the structural information obtained with SPM, can provide a better understanding of 2D TMD materials for the future development of highly efficient, flexible, lightweight optoelectronic devices.

  • DevOps in the Real World
    DevOps in the Real World
    Jon Collins, Nigel Kersten Apr 30 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This free 1-hour webinar from Gigaom Research brings together leading minds in DevOps, featuring Gigaom principal analyst Jon Collins and Puppet's Nigel Kersten in a discussion about the practicalities of delivering on the benefits of DevOps.

    As increasing numbers of organizations look to DevOps as a way of delivering on their innovation and continuous delivery goals, they are confronted with many challenges — to the extent that they might conclude that DevOps isn’t for them. At the same time, decision makers looking to automate and simplify integration, test and deployment activities recognize that tools cannot be adopted in a vacuum.

    So, how can organizations take a pragmatic position on DevOps, and what lessons can they learn about delivering both efficiency and effectiveness, and above all, make things simpler with DevOps automation?

    In this webinar, we consider the options now available to simplify development and operations tasks. We look at the role and scope of model-driven management, for example where it needs to be supported by discrete activity. And overall, if DevOps is a journey, we consider lessons to be learned from those further down the path.

    This 1-hour webinar will give attendees insights into:

    What challenges are enterprises looking to address with DevOps today?
    How can decision makers determine if DevOps is valid for their environments?
    What automation options are available for those adopting DevOps practices?
    Why are organizations adopting best-of-breed DevOps automation approaches?
    How can decision makers navigate bureaucracy and demonstrate value?
    What is the role of management data and visualization for development decisions?
    Why are maturity models the wrong starting point for the DevOps journey?
    Are there other factors to consider such as organization, process?

    New Paradigms in Healthcare: Cloud Ready with MSFT Azure and Informatica
    Craig Darling, Health & Life Sciences, Microsoft and Richard Cramer, Chief Healthcare Strategist, Informatica Apr 30 2019 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Healthcare is a highly regulated industry. Before migrating data to the cloud, you must have the right measures and framework in place—including HIPAA and HITRUST—to protect healthcare information and other sensitive data. Replacing an established on-premises enterprise data warehouse (EDW) is not as simple as moving data from an on-premises database to a database in the cloud; healthcare IT organizations require an incremental, well-governed, secure strategy based on a specific provider’s needs to rapidly deliver business results while ensuring minimal disruption to existing applications and analytic workloads.
