Monitoring Irregular Heart Rate and Detection of Heart Attacks using Nanotechnology and Wearable Technology

Heart diseases are the no. 1 cause of death in the US with Coronary heart diseases leading to over 366,880 deaths in a year. In 2015 alone there were about 114,023 deaths due to heart attacks.

Approximately every 40 seconds, an American will have a heart attack

Numerous measures are being taken by individuals and institutions to help prevent strokes and monitor heart rate for any signs of cardiovascular diseases but they are either too expensive or not that practical and effective. …

Applications of Nanotechnology in Online Data Storage

Cloud computing has had a lot of advancements since its introduction to the world; It has shifted from being a mere online storage utility to a technology that yields considerable advantage to those who can properly utilize it. One big application of cloud computing comes in the storage and synthesis of “big data”.

What is big data?

“Big data is a term that describes the large volume of data — both structured and unstructured — that inundates a business on a day-to-day basis”

The huge amounts of data that is being collected from traffic signals, mobile phones, online transactions, and especially social media websites lead to a set of data which is often useful for businesses as this data once synthesized properly could help assess risk and competition. …
