Li-Fi – the future of Wireless Data Transmission

Harold Haas, a professor from the University of Edinburgh invented a super-fast alternative to Wi-Fi which uses light rays to transmit data. He named it Li-Fi which is basically an optical wireless network communication system. According to Haas, the future of the lightbulb is far brighter than what it may seem.

Every LED lightbulb could be used in the future to transmit data at an incredibly fast speed. “All we need to do is fit a small microchip to every potential ...

Potential Health Information Exchange of Laboratory Data

Public health in the abstract has frequently been promoted as a potential benefit of HIE[ 7][ 21-23] If HIOs become part of the health care landscape, they could significantly accelerate efforts to automate public health activities. However, except for the research initiatives discussed in this article, there have been very few implementations of these ideas. Also, specific use cases through which public health can be improved with HIE have not yet been described comprehensively in the literature. We formally describe ...

Better Public Health with Improved Health Information Exchange

Public health relies on data reported by health care partners, and information technology makes such reporting easier than ever. However, data are often structured according to a variety of different terminologies and formats, making data interfaces complex and costly.

We give detailed descriptions of 11 ...

Communication, Culture and Development

We are now in an era where information flows virtually free across International boundaries, either broadcast by satellites orbiting high up in space or travelling at cyber speed along the seamless info-bahn on earth. In this form of communication, culture and development are closely linked. This would not require repeated emphasis if the principal decisions at various national and cross border (International) levels dealing with development, did not very often overlook the linkage between communication and culture.

Development is frequently perceived ...

What has not changed is your role in leading young people to information sources. The job has never been more complex, or bigger. This ...
