On April 5, 2021 the US Supreme Court in a 6-2 decision in the copyright case of Google v Oracle found that Google's use of the APIs from 37 Java packages in the Android platform was legally a "fair use", thus deciding the case in favor of Google. This decision was the culmination of more than ten years of litigation and two jury trials whose decisions were each overturned on appeal, before being ultimately determined by the Supreme Court.
The growth in martech, or technologies to scale and automate marketing, has been explosive. Today, there are over 8,000 major martech companies compared to just 900 in 2014. Professor Carl Mela will discuss key reasons that underpin growth in martech and summarize its major components including ad tech, content marketing, and B2B, B2C, and C2C platforms including sales tech, social media, the peer economy, and reputation platforms. He will also outline a more strategic approach to creating and managing your martech stack. Join the discussion via LinkedIn Live.
The early designers of the Internet fostered tremendous innovation by leaving much of the network's functionality to the programmable computers at its periphery. Unfortunately, the *inside* of the network has been much harder to change. Yet, changing the network is important to make the Internet more reliable, secure, performant, and cost-effective. The networking research community has struggled for many years to make networks more programmable. What has worked, and what hasn't, and what lessons have we learned along the way?
Dr. Jeffrey Fredberg's laboratory investigates physical processes expressed by the eukaryotic cell, such as its deformability, contractility, malleability, and motility. His team turned attention more recently from the single cell in isolation to the cellular collective as it might pertain, for example, to disruption of the bronchial epithelial layer in asthma or tumor invasion in breast cancer.
As scientists and engineers, it is tempting to think that the key to making a successful product is just a great idea. In reality, that is only one small step on the way to a successful product. This is particularly true in regulated industries like medical devices where even great products can fail to see the light of day because a disciplined design process was not followed AND documented. Fixing an undisciplined development process can be prohibitively expensive and cause unacceptably long delays in getting a product to market.
