Application of Big Data Analytics in Precision Medicine: Lesson for Ethiopia (open access)

Application of Big Data Analytics in Precision Medicine: Lesson for Ethiopia

Precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that considers individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. Big data analytics (BDA) using cutting-edge technologies helps to design models that can diagnose, treat and predict diseases. In Ethiopia, healthcare service delivery faces many challenges specifically in relation to prescribing the right medicine to the right patient at the right time. Thus, patients face challenges ranging from staying on treatment plans longer, and then leaving treatment, and finally dying of complications. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to explore the trends, challenges, and opportunities of applying BDA in precision medicine globally and take lessons for Ethiopia through a systematic literature review of 19 peer reviewed articles from five databases. The findings indicated that cancer in general, epilepsy, and systemic diseases altogether are areas currently getting big attention. The challenges are attributed to the nature of health data, failure in collaboration for data sharing, ethical and legal issues, interoperability of systems, poor knowledge skills and culture, and poor infrastructure. Development of modern technologies, experimental technologies and methods, cloud computing, Internet of Things, social networks and Ethiopia’s government initiative to promote private technological firms could be an …

Changing Landscape of Scholarly Communications: Open Access (open access)

Changing Landscape of Scholarly Communications: Open Access

The 17th International Conference on Knowledge Management was held in the historic city of Potsdam, Germany. Since the conference was among the first post-pandemic face to face conferences, the overall theme of the 17th edition of the ICKM conference rightly focused on “Knowledge, Uncertainty and Risks: From individual to global scale” at different levels of analysis and agency. This document highlighted one of the panels and the panelists argue that open access to scholarly knowledge production should be the modus operandi in the time and age we live in. Open access to knowledge is critical not just to accelerate advances in finding solutions to societal issues, but also to meet the growing expectations around higher education institutions’ social responsibilities in times of uncertainties.

COVID19: Mask Misinformation and Social Noise (open access)

COVID19: Mask Misinformation and Social Noise

Disinformation and misinformation are pervasive in unregulated social-media environments, which are used habitually for obtaining news. Fenn et al in 2019 stated that “Given that people tend to share interesting information to maintain social relationships or to manage their impressions, information that receives more likes may subsequently be shared more often” (Fenn, Ramsay, Kantner, Pezdek, & Abed, 2019, p.133) Recent studies also revealed that misinformation from politicians and celebrities has increased in recent years which lead to more engagement on Twitter (Brennen, et al. 2020 ). There has been a lot of misinformation pertaining to COVID-19 masks on Twitter. Due to the misinformation, many people might not believe in the effectiveness of masks. Even though studies have shown the effectiveness of wearing masks in different countries (Lyu and Wehby, 2020). Not wearing masks affects people's health and indirectly increases the spread of COVID-19. Studies of social noise and misinformation cases on social media are needed, specifically focusing on how social noise influences and contributes to the spread of misleading and possibly harmful messages.

Development of Micro and Pilot Projects, Evaluation of Technologies, and Developing Data/Information Infrastructure (open access)

Development of Micro and Pilot Projects, Evaluation of Technologies, and Developing Data/Information Infrastructure

Successful organizations are continuously looking for better ways to improve efficiency. Knowledge management (KM) in institutions is essentially based on an understanding of knowledge creation and knowledge transfer. At Tarrant County College, we are currently developing a District-wide knowledge management (KM) program. This KM process is implemented via micro pilot projects and processes; and an analysis of current technology, structure, and culture. We carefully try to anticipate challenges we will encounter as the project is executed (geographical distance during a pandemic, cultural barriers, dealing with tacit knowledge…). Next, we carefully begin to create a road map for the KM process including: Establishing objectives, preparing culture change, creating a high-level process, identifying KM/communication/knowledge dissemination gaps, selecting appropriate technology, and deciphering the current status of KM throughout the District. Then, we attempt to implement our KM process via micro pilot projects. We will soon develop methods for evaluating our KM workflow. Our initial results suggest Laserfiche might be able to host 70% of or data and information, however other tools such as ITSM, Microsoft TEAMS, Team Dynamics… will also be needed to host data and information.

Exploring Knowledge Creation from Project Management Processes using an Analytics Approach: A First Look

Organizations struggle to harness tacit knowledge – the knowledge that resides in the heads of knowledge workers, whereas there are always opportunities to capture knowledge during project management activities. Using a literature review, this paper analyzes how knowledge can be captured during different project management phases. It attempts to bridge frequently ignored areas of project management, knowledge management, and analytics.
