Microsoft expands connected car push with patent licensing - News - 39 min 53 sec ago

Microsoft's push into the connected car space has moved up a gear with a new patent licensing agreement with Toyota. The world's second-largest auto maker will have access to a range of Microsoft patents as part of the deal announced this week.

Rather than trying to build a high-tech automobile of its own, Microsoft is focusing on providing carmakers with the tools they need to create smarter vehicles and the Toyota deal is the first of what it hopes will be a series of such agreements.

Microsoft offers an entire suite of cloud services aimed at aiding the development of internet-enabled automobiles and is also integrating its Cortana virtual assistant into cars alongside PCs, phones and other devices. In the future, a connected car could become a rolling extension of a user’s office, with Office 365 integrations.

Leaked iCloud credentials obtained from third parties, Apple says - News - 1 hour 21 min ago

A group of hackers threatening to wipe data from Apple devices attached to millions of iCloud accounts didn't obtain whatever log-in credentials they have through a breach of the company's services, Apple said.

"There have not been any breaches in any of Apple's systems including iCloud and Apple ID," an Apple representative said in an emailed statement. "The alleged list of email addresses and passwords appears to have been obtained from previously compromised third-party services."

A group calling itself the Turkish Crime Family claims to have login credentials for more than 750 million, and email addresses, and the group says more than 250 million of those credentials provide access to iCloud accounts that don't have two-factor authentication turned on.

IDG Contributor Network: Social determinants: powering the next big leap for healthcare analytics - Opinion - 2 hours 17 sec ago

Real estate isn’t the only thing that’s all about location. Your ZIP code may be the single biggest predictor of your health and mortality. 

Healthcare analytics professionals increasingly view ZIP codes as surrogates for income, education, employment status, ethnicity and other related data elements that are collectively referred to as social determinants of health (SDOH). These types of data are beginning to play a critical role in population health management (PHM) practices.

The challenges of big data, more data sources

Healthcare is focused on unlocking insights from clinical data that resides in electronic health record (EHR) systems, as well as claims data. Emerging data sources are challenging healthcare organizations to broaden the scope of their data gathering and analysis. A recent report titled "Care Redesign: What Data Can Really Do for Health Care" states that, in a survey of healthcare professionals by NEJM Catalyst, a part of the Massachusetts Medical Society, respondents identified clinical data, cost data and claims data as the three most useful data sources today for effective care design and management. However, respondents said they expect the picture to change somewhat in five years, with patient-generated health data (PGHD) and genomic data gaining ground as important data sources. (Curiously, the report makes no mention of social determinant data, a key missing item in achieving a holistic understanding of patients that helps predict healthcare outcomes.)
