You Can Build A High-Resolution Streaming Service, But Will Enough People Care?

Amazon
AMZN
recently completed deals with Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group to remaster a large batch of songs and albums into Ultra HD streaming audio quality for use exclusively on its Amazon Music HD service. The platform already has 5 million tracks in the high-resolution 24 bit and up to 192kHz format, as well as immersive audio tracks in both Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 Reality Audio formats, as the company becomes particularly agressive in the hi-res audio space.

What’s surprising here is not that Amazon has such a large presence in this arena, but that Apple
AAPL
has chosen not to compete – at least not yet. That fast is that Apple has been collecting high-resolution digital mastered since its Mastered for iTunes program (now called Apple Digital Masters) launched in 2012. While the service still streams at a maximum bit

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) – Being equipped with knowledge of genetic health and family health history can help increase a family’s confidence in important decision making. A recent survey from Ancestry, the global leader in family history and consumer genomics, found that nearly 60 percent of parents say that the COVID-19 pandemic has increased their interest in understanding their genetic health. With back-to-school season underway, their own and their children’s health is top of mind for Moms, particularly this year, as the world navigates the fight against COVID-19.

Ancestry introduced AncestryHealth powered by NGS (Next Generation Sequencing), its most advanced genetic testing technology, in August. Designed to help people understand their risk for developing certain inheritable health conditions, the advanced testing technology behind AncestryHealth provides more comprehensive genetic screening of an expanded set of health conditions — such as heart disease, breast cancer, colon cancer

Technology is increasing patient participation in health care

Some of us may be skipping our annual physicals. And our skin exam. Perhaps the dentist, too. Maybe we don’t think we need it this year, with everything going on. Or maybe we’re too spooked by the possibility of contracting COVID-19 to visit the doctor’s office.

Overall, it is true that Americans are often in excellent health, particularly when compared to eras past. But as Mark Zeitzer, the Portland-based medical director for acute-care services at ZOOM+Care, explains, that’s because we’ve done a great job with preventive health from annual flu shots to cancer screenings.

“Preventive care greatly improves life expectancy, and it has gotten us to where we are today with a population that’s typically in great health,” he says. “Over the last 10-20 years, we’ve seen the survival rates of cancer go up thanks to early detection,” he says. As another example, flu shots keep us from catching the

A Major Security Gap In Duty Of Care Of CEOs And Board Directors?

Last week, I wrote an article on CyberSecurity on my Forbes Channel and it was the highest read blog article since I started writing for Forbes. This blog examines the impacts from Cybersecurity, but from the increased realities of working at home, and the impacts that security operations have become more complex. Security focus is now turning to how we all connect and have access with identify control technologies being at the top of cybersecurity risks as more entry points equals more risks.

Cloud security is a major area for focus in the data protection sector and many are now discussing the increased risks of the home office as companies need to understand perhaps all the technology enablements in their employees home offices.

A few key questions to reflect upon: what are the risks of having multiple users in

If Arctic ice melt doesn’t boost sea levels, do we care?

US government scientists reported Monday that the Arctic Ocean’s floating ice cover has shrivelled to its second lowest extent since satellite records began in 1979.

Until this month, only once in the last 42 years has Earth’s frozen skull cap covered less than four million square kilometres (1.5 million square miles).

The trend line is clear: sea ice extent has diminished 14 percent per decade over that period. The Arctic could see it’s first ice-free summer as early as 2035, researchers reported in Nature Climate Change last month.

But all that melting ice and snow does not directly boost sea levels any more than melted ice cubes make a glass of water overflow, which gives rise to an awkward question: who cares?

Granted, it’s a red flag. 

“The decline in Arctic sea ice in summer is one of the clearest, most unequivocal signs of climate change,” said Julien Nicolas, an

Anova Expands Technology Platform Providing Patients With Access to Any Clinical Trial or Promising Treatment Wherever They Receive Care

LONDON & CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Anova Enterprises, Inc. (Anova), an organization dedicated to accelerating clinical development with the industry’s first collaborative ‘learning system,’ today announced the expansion of AnovaOS™, a technology platform that brings investigators, sites, patients and biopharmaceutical companies together to accelerate development of promising new treatments.

Amazon launches Care Hub for family to monitor senior citizens

Amazon today introduced Care Hub, a way for people to monitor the activity of older adults or people who wish to live independent lives but may need assistance from friends or family. Care Hub works through Alexa-enabled devices like Echo speakers, including the ability to ensure that if a device hears “Alexa, call for help” that it can automatically call an emergency contact. Echo devices do not allow people to call 911, but Care Hub means that as long as far-field voice recognition picks up a voice, it can call a designated contact.

Alexa also allows friends or family to monitor an activity feed by viewing it on a smart phone. Users can set Care Hub to send contacts an automatic notification if the person being monitored fails to interact with an Echo device by a certain time of the day, according to Amazon VP Daniel Rausch.
