 Here's who won the Beta City Venture Pitch Day

October 2, 2015

"A giant sign reading "Made in America" loomed over Shelly Blake-Plock. In front of him was a group of investors from some of Maryland's top venture capital firms.

But the founder of Baltimore big data firm Yet Analytics was looking beyond both the state and the country.

“I want to create a big company that makes big change in the world,” he said emphatically.

The ambition and passion typified the Venture Pitch Day, which was primarily organized by Betamore. The event kicked off Beta City, a daylong event that let the public into City Garage in Port Covington for the first time, and was organized by Betamore, Plank Industries, Technical.ly and Startup Maryland. It was the culminating event ofBaltimore Innovation Week.

The day was a celebration of Baltimore’s startup community, and served as likely the best opportunity of the year for folks from all sides of the tech scene to get together in one room.

As a result, however, it was also a reflection that the startups that make up the scene are looking beyond the boundaries of the city as they build their products.

During the Yet Analytics pitch, for instance, Blake-Plock made the case that the big data analytics and interoperability platform the team is building at the Emerging Technology Centers’ 33rd Street campus could help the biggest companies.

At the same time, however, he said, “Everything is built in Baltimore.”

It's Not About Big Data, Its About Smart Data

September 25, 2015

"Are you tired of hearing about “big data”? The term might be overhyped, but it’s not going anywhere. We live in a world where we’re inundated with information, from a variety of sources that come at us quickly; but big data is useless without some sort of analysis to make sense of it all. Increasingly, Nielsen’s mission has been to turn big data into something far more useful for making impactful business decisions: Smart data. Smart data is actionable data and it requires data companies to be innovative and fast moving.

One way to do this is by investing in small and early-stage start-ups to encourage the digital innovation that moves businesses forward. It’s win-win; start-ups receive funding, strategic guidance, operational support, office space, hands-on management, business development and access to a network of global partners. The larger company fosters innovation in the industry and access to cutting-edge technology that fuels business forward. Nielsen Innovate, an early-stage technological incubator, was launched in 2013, focusing on market research, consumer behavior, data analytics, mobile and new media."

Shelly Blake-Plock Feature Post In XAPI Quarterly By Connections Forum

September 23, 2015

"In June 2015, the White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a Memorandum, which mandates the exclusive use ofHTTPS with HSTS across all Federal government web services. It states clearly that “all publicly accessible Federal websites and web services only provide service through a secure connection. The strongest privacy and integrity protection currently available for public web connections is Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS).”

It stands to reason that as a US Department of Defense initiative, the Experience API (xAPI) should hold itself, at a minimum, to that standard.

With a thumb’s-up from ADL, my Yet Analytics’ colleague Jason Lewis and I volunteered to draft the skeleton of an open source xAPI security protocol which meets the demands of the OMB memo. I presented our initial ideas at the xAPI Bootcamp at ADL’s Alexandria Co-lab in July of 2015. The near-term goal is to produce a formal draft for public comment through the xAPI community by the end of the year. We will publish a schedule for revisions and a final draft and would then like charter community members to sign on to the protocol. The charter members will likely draft an xAPIsec certification to be published and managed through the forthcoming industry consortium that will steward xAPI."

Leveraging Leadership To Get Women To The Top Of Baltimore's Tech Community

August 7, 2015

"That was the case or Margaret Roth and her two co-founders of Yet Analytics Inc., who brought their data analytics startup to ETC because of its diversity.

"It's been so much more rewarding and a better experience to have someone like Deb making these connections, pushing us out into places in a way that's about what we've done and what we've accomplished versus the fact that this is a woman-founded company," said Roth, who is the company's chief marketing officer. "It's a different mentality."

With Tillett in her corner, Roth has never felt Yet Analytics got a meeting with an investor or a business prospect because someone was being charitable to a women-led business."

George Mason Researcher Creates Simulated Traffic Accident To Test Emergency Response

May 26, 2016

"At 9:15 on a rainy Thursday morning a police dispatcher radioed a call to emergency medical technicians: “There is an accident with injury, a single vehicle with the patient not acting appropriately at 4600 West Ox Road.”

A late-model blue BMW had crashed. The driver, sitting upright, wasn’t moving or responding to the arriving EMTs who pulled up in an ambulance followed by a fire truck. Unbeknownst to them, the driver was suffering from serious internal bleeding. The driver was carefully removed from the car and strapped to a gurney before being loaded into the ambulance and taken to the hospital.

The “driver” was in fact a manikin, a life-sized accident victim equipped with two electronic beacons that were pinging every three seconds to receivers at Inova Fairfax Hospital. The vehicles, equipment, EMTs, emergency room personnel and others involved in responding to the emergency were also equipped with Bluetooth beacons that recorded their proximity to the manikin, which was relayed in real time to observers at the hospital."

Yet Analytics Positioned To Grow As Spending On Corporate Training Rises

May 18, 2015

"ORLANDO — Work in America, across just about every industry, is becoming more dynamic and fast–paced, yet the skill– sets of many employees in an ever–changing competitive environment are far from being considered razor–sharp by training experts.

The deep recession has played a role in creating rustiness among work forces. Generally, when the economy pulls back, businesses and organizations look to slice their investments in employee training.

When the recovery sets in, businesses begin to invest again in their human capital. And spending on corporate training started rebounding two years ago, when it grew by 15 percent, to the tune of more than $70 billion in America and over $130 billion worldwide. It was the highest growth rate in seven years, according to research by the advisory firm Bersin by Deloitte.

Now, companies and organizations are scrambling to close the skills–gap among their employee ranks as the economy heats up and global competition intensifies in many business segments.

“Every organization has to train its people,” said Shelly Blake– Plock, the president and chief executive officer of Yet Analytics Inc. in Baltimore, whose company helps organizations leverage “big data” to measure the business impact of their training programs, including their return on investment and the effectiveness of their learning initiatives."

Global City Team Challenge Tech Jam

February 2, 2015

"The focus of this challenge is to provide immediate and enhanced information and feedback to emergency and medical response teams in the debriefing session concluding a complex, live-action, multi-team (e.g. emergency response, pre-hospital, surgical and post-op) simulation. Leveraging an extensible, interoperable system based on open specifications that dynamically collects and analyzes performance (big) data from multiple, networked devices in real-time, this system will track the activity of these professionals while engaged the live action simulation for immediate or latent analysis and display.

The goal is improved learning, reflection and performance support in the debriefing session or in situ to ultimately improve patient care. Providing dynamic data collection and display by linking devices to people to actions for improved learning at the point of need from simulations by medical and emergency response teams in crisis situations can potentially improve their ability to learn, to perform and to respond efficiently and effectively to keep our citizens and their families safe and healthy. "

Gaining Clojure in Baltimore

February 2, 2015

"Jason Lewis, CTO of Yet Analytics, taught Betamore's first community workshop on Clojure in February. This is his story of how Clojure is just like Baltimore itself.

Although Clojure itself is a relative newcomer on the programming language scene, first appearing in 2007, its roots run deep. Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, the second-oldest high-level programming language (created in 1958), predated only by FORTRAN. Lisp is scary to most programmers, and I don’t think it’s just the parentheses. It requires a different way of thinking, but gives you a more powerful tool for turning ideas into software. And some of these ideas end up in places that are really reminiscent of Baltimore itself."
