According to Steve Jacobs, CEO of Apps4Android, "Knowledge is a right, not a privilege. It is the premise of progress in every society, in every family, for every child in every corner of the world; and we are thrilled to be pioneering new technologies that help level the knowledge-acquisition playing field automatically."

The app was developed with support from the App Factory, a project of the Wireless RERC, through funding by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), a component of the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services. App Factory Director Jim Mueller said, "We chose to support Document Knowledge Miner because of its unique potential to increase the usefulness and usability of mobile wireless technologies for people of all ages and abilities."

In addition to the app itself, computer-based access to IDEAL Group's Knowledge-Discovery services enables users to submit digital content to services that automatically:

  • Extract and present concept words in alphabetical order and/or ranked by importance;
  • Generate summaries based upon user-selected concept words;
  • Generate interactive, mind maps, knowledge maps, and other visualizations, from each user-selected concept word;
  • Provide files suitable for importing into powerful third-party applications for further manipulation, analysis, and learning.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
