Viratech Corp. Publishes e-Book on Open Source Biotech Research

STOCKTON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- Viratech Corp. (PINKSHEETS: VIRA), the first open source biotech research social network platform, announced today that it has published its e-Book on open source biotech research. The book, "Open Source Cancer Research," by Dr. Kevin Buckman, describes how the first open source biotech research social network platform works to make it possible for individuals or smaller companies to compete with larger companies in the race to patent new medicines or technology. The book can be purchased at: http://www.amazon.com/Open-Source-Cancer-Research-ebook/dp/B00BL8N3TA.

Popular products such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chromium, Android and the Apache Open Office Suite, were all developed with open source. Viratech's patent-pending method of allowing open source research and development of biotech inventions is designed to allow biotech the same advancements as the IT industry enjoyed in open source research and development of software which led to the huge current advance in information technology. Its premise is simply to use the social networking phenomena of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, and apply it to the biotech world, where many new treatments and diagnostics are either gobbled up by Big Pharma and never developed, or never developed for lack of IP protection and financing.

IP protection is complemented by the elements of Promotion and Production of the technology, all using custom tailored interactive pages within the Viratech Social Network, called Micro Social Networks (MSN), owned by each user of the site who creates a page. Any user generated content that is contributed to the MSN owner's page is, by Viratech's terms of service and a separate permission layer, owned by that MSN owner and protected by his or her copyright. This mechanism marks the first time that user generated content on a social network can be utilized in converting traditional patents into copyrighted work products.

Each MSN user can promote their technologies by broadcasting them through a newswire service, which gets picked up on Google through the key words in each article. Readers of the article are met by a pop-up that asks them to join the MSN which, when they join, allows the owner of the MSN to apply their activity in the expanding copyrighted body of knowledge.

Viratech sees their intellectual property as having the potential in creating a paradigm shift in health care, resulting in faster development of new therapies and diagnostics.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
