Using Social Data Trends to Predict Election Outcomes

Using Social Data Trends to Predict Election Outcomes (Oct. 2, 2013) — Using Social Data Trends to Predict Election Outcomes Social Data Week - Mandarin Oriental New York As social data becomes more readily available, it's incumbent upon end users and researchers to invest heavily in understanding the utility of that data. At a high level, this means assessing the quality and unique aspects of different sources of social data. It also means that we need to separate the signal from the noise and focus on the underlying social mechanisms that produce the data in order to insure that we're using it intelligently. In my presentation, I'll discuss the work of the Ecosystem Measurement team at FB, share some results and make a general call for more research linking social data to social outcomes.

IBM Gets Closer To A Deal For Chip Making Unit With GlobalFoundries

IBM Gets Closer To A Deal For Chip Making Unit With GlobalFoundries

TheStreet (June 11, 2014) — IBM is getting closer to a deal for its semiconductor manufacturing unit with GlobalFoundries. IBM has been attempting to unload this unit, which loses up to $1.5 billion each year. GlobalFoundries is emerging as the most likely takeover candidate over other interested parties, such as Intel and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing. The most valuable parts of the troubled IBM unit are its engineers and intellectual property. GlobalFoundries isn't very interested in IBM's manufacturing plants because it has its own modern facilities. Who gets to control what intellectual property will determine almost everything about this deal, including the price. IBM initially asked for more than $2 billion and potential bidders said they would be willing to pay half of that. In any case, the price has a lot of room to fluctuate depending on how much intellectual property IBM is willing to include. Video provided by TheStreet
