Kaltura, Captioning Tools

Accessible and searchable media is very important to the University of Illinois. We strive to make all media captioned to enable discovery and to ensure that accessibility needs are met. Captioned video is useful for those with a hearing loss and for users with certain learning disabilities. It can also be a useful tool to anyone who struggles to understand an accent, as reading text along with listening assists with comprehension. Media creators are responsible for captioning their content. Gephi introduction. Project Planner - SAGE Research Methods. GeneEd - Genetics, Education, Discovery.

23andMe Markets Genome Kits to Researchers. Scientists can now buy the direct-to-consumer sequencing product, and research participants can join 23andMe’s database.

23andMe Markets Genome Kits to Researchers

YOUTUBE, ALEXTHEORGANICDirect-to-consumer genomics firm 23andMe is offering its spit-to-sequence kits to researchers for $199. Study volunteers can then join the company’s ancestry database and receive information on carrier status for diseases. Duke University’s Ahmad Hariri, who has used the product for his research since 2009, gave The Verge a rave review. “It’s allowed us to maintain the highest quality of genotyping research without any need or necessity to have our own laboratory and our own staff,” he said. While the service may ease the handling of the sample and analysis—23andMe can process kits sent directly to study participants and then give researchers raw genotyping data online—some balked at the price. One of the big appeals to using 23andMe is what volunteers get out of it. Have You Looked At This? Yewno. Yewno is a semantic-analysis engine that was formally launched at ALA this year, although its creators offered some low-key presentations earlier in 2016 at meetings held by SSP and AAUP.

Have You Looked At This? Yewno

The Yewno technology is run across full-text content, with the system creating a matrix of semantic entities found in each document. Yewno uses a mix of computational semantics, graph theory, and machine learning to retrieve relevant documents without reliance on restrictive conventions imposed by external technology or data format requirements. According to Michael Keller of Stanford, this means that Yewno enables searching of ideas rather than specific expressions, such as keywords. The technology is currently in beta-testing and/or trials at eight institutions: Harvard, Stanford, MIT, the University of Michigan, University of California–Berkeley, Stonehill College, Oxford University, and the Bavarian State Library.
