Biosurveillance Ecosystem (BSVE) Demo by Dr. Chris Kiley: https://vimeo.com/118940786
Dr. Chris Kiley of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) provided a webinar demonstration of their Biosurveillance Ecosystem (BSVE) to showcase some of the work that is going on in the community. The BSVE has broad applications to the public health analyst with user-driven functionality and testing from local and state health departments. This ongoing work is designed to provide a platform of interoperable applications that can enhance the analysis of real-time disease threats. The BSVE also supports third party application development and interoperability through an accessible software developer’s kit, encouraging collaboration and future growth.
Requirements User Stories vs Shall Statements by Dr. Rob Seater https://vimeo.com/102267904
Dr. Rob Seater of MIT Lincoln Labs discussed the fundamental contradiction that requirements often present us with -- that they are both critical and a waste of time. Understanding how this contradiction comes about helps us to address the problem by choosing an appropriate notation based on the phase of the project. He discussed the tradeoffs and appropriate use of traditional ‘shall’ statements and ‘user stories’. These tradeoffs are especially important to user-facing projects, but they are also valuable to projects focused on infrastructure or modernization.
