IBM Connect 2015

CEO & Founder, Gavin Russell invited to present at IBM Connect 2015 | Auckland | Sydney | Melbourne

The Loft Group has taken a strong market position in the adoption of cloud-based technologies to leverage the availability, elasticity, and reach of the cloud to create a global data delivery network (DDN) that enables applications to scale larger and remain available to users wherever they are in the world. This unique one-day event is designed for business leaders, technologists of all levels, and anyone who advocates for social or digital transformation within their organisation.

Loft Predicate & Technology Stack

Predicate enables a community to build a set of logical models around it’s activity, it’s trusted content and it’s behaviour.

These models allow for improved visibility and observation within the community, measurements of performance and collaboration and the identification of opportunities to engage with other communities.

The first model that Predicate is seeking to generate is a ‘corpus’, an index and supporting ontology of all the content that is believed to be important for the community.  This provides the required ‘touch stone’ for members of the community to see value in the continued use of the tool.

The second model is generated to innovate upon an iterative process that will engage the individual in interaction with the corpus and the generation of content through collaboration that is observed and recorded to build an extruded, ‘real’ concept of activity within the community.

This third model, of the actual activity within the community is a contained framework, using an ontological structure, sentiment analysis, and measurement of activity and environmental metrics.  From here analytics of knowledge (education, retention, etc.) even process and communication patterns can be observed and comparisons can be made between the ‘global’ context to what is important on a ‘local’ scale.

Clinical Diagnostic Research Tool (CDRT)

Clinical health consultation, notes and observations are the lynch pin of recording patient interaction. The conversion of this information into meaningful diagnostics is time consuming and often restricted in scope to reference materials that only the individual clinician knows about.

The Clinical Diagnostic Research Tool (CDRT) will enable a clinician to record their consultation and then have the notes used to search reference material included in a trusted, high value collection defined by a peer group. This will accelerate the diagnostic process by providing the clinician with a larger, more appropriate set of research while in process, instead of dedicating extensive time to discovery of content.

Digital Education Platform (DEP)

The company has identied the need for a software application upon which an individual can engage with content through self-organised educational models, bene?t from proven social collaboration and be encouraged through the sharing of their efforts with industry professional mentors and peer groups. The purpose of this tool is to assemble the large concepts of education and make them more accessible and consumable by the individual.

Our vision for the ideal digital classroom is emerging. It meets the needs of the students and the community that surrounds them. It assists in the creation of innovative content design and supports delivery and assessment. It provides opportunity for active learning and collaboration amongst peers and mentors by putting control into the hands of the individual. In short, it’s not a room at all.
