Vyopta, the leader in digital collaboration and experience optimization, today announced it has achieved U.S. Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Authority to Operate (ATO). Vyopta earned this authorization in partnership with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), its sponsoring agency. Vyopta is the only multi-vendor collaboration solution available in the FedRAMP Marketplace. FedRAMP is one of the most extensive security authorizations cloud services providers can achieve. It provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud services to ensure all federal data is secure in cloud environments.

Edge Intelligence for Empowering IoT-based Healthcare Systems Artificial Intelligence

The demand for real-time, affordable, and efficient smart healthcare services is increasing exponentially due to the technological revolution and burst of population. To meet the increasing demands on this critical infrastructure, there is a need for intelligent methods to cope with the existing obstacles in this area. In this regard, edge computing technology can reduce latency and energy consumption by moving processes closer to the data sources in comparison to the traditional centralized cloud and IoT-based healthcare systems. In addition, by bringing automated insights into the smart healthcare systems, artificial intelligence (AI) provides the possibility of detecting and predicting high-risk diseases in advance, decreasing medical costs for patients, and offering efficient treatments. The objective of this article is to highlight the benefits of the adoption of edge intelligent technology, along with AI in smart healthcare systems. Moreover, a novel smart healthcare model is proposed to boost the utilization of AI and edge technology in smart healthcare systems. Additionally, the paper discusses issues and research directions arising when integrating these different technologies together.

SAIA: Split Artificial Intelligence Architecture for Mobile Healthcare System Artificial Intelligence

As the advancement of deep learning (DL), the Internet of Things and cloud computing techniques for biomedical and healthcare problems, mobile healthcare systems have received unprecedented attention. Since DL techniques usually require enormous amount of computation, most of them cannot be directly deployed on the resource-constrained mobile and IoT devices. Hence, most of the mobile healthcare systems leverage the cloud computing infrastructure, where the data collected by the mobile and IoT devices would be transmitted to the cloud computing platforms for analysis. However, in the contested environments, relying on the cloud might not be practical at all times. For instance, the satellite communication might be denied or disrupted. We propose SAIA, a Split Artificial Intelligence Architecture for mobile healthcare systems. Unlike traditional approaches for artificial intelligence (AI) which solely exploits the computational power of the cloud server, SAIA could not only relies on the cloud computing infrastructure while the wireless communication is available, but also utilizes the lightweight AI solutions that work locally on the client side, hence, it can work even when the communication is impeded. In SAIA, we propose a meta-information based decision unit, that could tune whether a sample captured by the client should be operated by the embedded AI (i.e., keeping on the client) or the networked AI (i.e., sending to the server), under different conditions. In our experimental evaluation, extensive experiments have been conducted on two popular healthcare datasets. Our results show that SAIA consistently outperforms its baselines in terms of both effectiveness and efficiency.

New healthcare and population datasets now available in Google BigQuery Google Cloud Big Data and Machine Learning Blog Google Cloud Platform


We've just added several publicly available healthcare datasets to the collection of public datasets on Google BigQuery (the cloud-native data warehouse for analytics at petabyte scale), including RxNorm (maintained by NLM) and the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level II. While it's not technically a healthcare dataset, we also added the 2000 and 2010 Decennial census counts broken down by age, gender and zip code tabular areas, which we hope will assist healthcare utilization and population health analysis (as we'll discuss below). Anyone with a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) account can explore these datasets. RxNorm was created by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) to provide a normalized naming system for clinical drugs and provide structured information such as brand names, ingredients and so on for each drug. Drug information is made available as a single "concepts" table while the relationships that map entities to each other (ingredient to brand name, for example) is made available as a separate "relationships" table.

Azure ML Now Compliant with HIPAA, ISO 27001, ISO 27018 and EU Model Clauses


This post is authored by Krishna Anumalasetty, Principal Program Manager at Microsoft. We are excited to announce that Azure Machine Learning security practices have been verified by independent third party auditors and achieved HIPAA, ISO 27001, ISO 27018 and EU Model Clauses compliance. Enterprise customers often require that cloud services comply with specific security certifications. Compliance certifications provide assurance to customers that the security of these services have been verified by independent auditors. HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) establishes requirements for the use, disclosure and safeguarding of electronic Patient Health Information (ePHI).
