Multifaceted nature of sensitive data allows for wide range of research

Sensitive data is any data that contains personal information, which can be used to directly identify a specific person. Sensitive data includes personal identity numbers, genetic data or spatial data. Human genetic data can be used to develop better drugs, prevent diseases and choose the best treatment, such as for cancer patients. Indeed, sensitive data is a very hot topic right now, because it has been found that it can be used in a variety of ways in different types of research.

Executive decision support for modern business management

Decision support systems are currently available for all medium and large companies around the world. Professor Ralf Östermark presents a paradigm shift to modern "Executive decision support", where planning and budgeting are made more efficient and the coordination in the management group is improved. The built-in components of the system provide possibilities to more diverse risk modelling and the coverage of larger sets of alternatives than what is possible through traditional risk analysis. Furthermore, the artificial intelligence based HPC-platform GHA allows unique possibilities to connecting holistic firm models with corporate technology involving challenging computational problem solving.

Debated growth mechanism of carbon material explained through atomic level simulations

Since early on, there has been a debate as to what physical processes are involved in the growth mechanism of dense amorphous carbon films, which contain a high degree of tetrahedral diamond-like carbon atoms. These films have excellent mechanical properties resembling those of diamond. Because of the impossibility to study the atomistic picture of film growth experimentally, many efforts have been made during the last 30 years to provide an explanation based on computational simulation.

Open Science and Research Forum takes a look at the project achievements and an open future

The Open Science and Research Forum was held on 16 November 2017 at Congress Centre Paasitorni in Helsinki. The theme of the forum was open access to knowledge and scientific publishing. The achievements of the Open Science and Research (OSR) project were presented at the forum, with the focus being moved to the future, to the time after completion of the project. Launched by the Ministry of Education and Culture in 2014, the OSR project promotes access to knowledge and open science. It is based on extensive co-operation between ministries, higher education institutions, research institutes and providers of research funding.
