    UCI Calit2 Logo
    Today, the health information of an individual is scattered across various providers, payers, pharmacies, laboratories, biometric sensors and healthcare applications. Although a user can obtain their data from these sources, they have no tools to manage this data in an integrated fashion and derive value from it on an ongoing basis. Health360 solves this problem by leveraging human-computer interaction and information technology to deliver a simple, customizable dashboard providing a comprehensive view of a user’s health aspects. Health360 not only informs its users, but also educates them and helps them in carefully following their medication and pursuing wellness goals. A simple, yet powerful design will enable users to manage their health through Health360 without getting lost in the details or complexity of the medical terminology.

Big Data for Business Managers: Bridging the gap between potential and value

Anmol Rajpurohit
Conference PapersBig Data, 2013 IEEE International Conference on 6-9 Oct. 2013

Abstract

Given the surge of interest in research, publication and application on Big Data over the last few years, the potential of Big Data seems to be well-established now across businesses. However, in most of the business implementations Big Data still seem to be struggling to deliver the promised value (ROI). Such results despite using the market leading Big Data solutions and talented deployment team are forcing the business managers to think what needs to be done differently. This paper lays down the framework for business managers to understand Big Data processes. Besides providing a business overview of Big Data core components, the paper presents several questions that the managers must ask to assess the effectiveness of their Big Data processes. This paper is based on the analysis of several Big Data projects that never delivered and comparison against successful ones. The hypothesis is developed based on public information and is proposed as the first step for business managers keen on effectively leveraging Big Data.

    Named Data Networking(NDN) at UCLA

    Since May 2012, I have been actively involved in the research and development of a new, better architecture for internet – Named Data Networking (NDN) at UCLA REMAP (Center for Research in Engineering, Media and Performance). The fundamental changes introduced by NDN to the internet communication paradigm call for extensive and multi-dimensional evaluations of various aspects of the NDN design, which comprised of majority of my work at UCLA.
    During my research, I built several modules that facilitate the use and assessment of NDN framework for real-life innovative applications such as server-less multi-user chat and environmental sensing. I used these modules to do performance assessment and benchmarking of key components of the NDN architecture. The insights provided by my analysis led to the identification of architecture gaps, thus, providing direction to future research. My research and consequently developed applications clearly demonstrated how NDN’s embedding of application names in the routing system promotes efficient authoring of sophisticated distributed applications, reducing complexity and thus opportunities for error, as well as time and expense of design and deployment.

    Side-match prediction based intra-coding method for H.264/AVC

    Implemented and integrateda side-matchprediction scheme into the state-of-the-art H.264/AVC framework to provide a new predictive approach. The proposed method generates a side-match predicted image from original image through the process of side match prediction. Side match prediction uses the neighboring known pixels to predict an unknownpixel.The prediction error sub-image generated by subtracting the side-match prediction image from original image is then encoded with intra prediction modes, quantization parameters and, scanning patterns.
