Plenary Session – Anabolic, Aphrodisiac or Analgesic?

John Sall, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President, SAS

 

As we develop analytical tools in JMP, we inevitably must make decisions about how to prioritize:

  1. Should we make the product more powerful by adding more muscle?
  2. Should we make it sexier, more exciting?
  3. Should we focus on pain relief, making it less frustrating, less burdensome?

In the language of long A-words, should we go for anabolic, aphrodisiac or analgesic? John Sall thinks the answer is analgesic. Pain relief should be the central motivating force for development.

Of course, the three aren’t mutually exclusive. Adding an exciting power feature could also relieve pain. But pain relief is central, because pain is the condition that can really freeze us, demotivate us, make us stop at a less-than-full perspective of what our data can tell us.

Tutorial Session - Introduction to useful JMP add-ins in JMP User Community

Yuichi Katsumura, Pre/Post-Sales Systems Engineer, SAS Institute Japan Ltd.

 

The JMP User Community provides useful information for JMP users. For example, a page called File Exchange allows you to search for and download add-ins published by other users. In this tutorial, we will introduce some useful add-ins from the add-ins published in the JMP User Community with demonstrations. We are planning to introduce add-ins such as data table processing and graph function.

Plenary Session - Connecting Theory and Skills to Develop Active Practitioners: A Simulation Training for Healthcare Professionals 

Takeshi Morimoto

Professor of Medicine, Department of Clinical Epidemiology,
Hyogo College of Medicine

The majority of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals improve their skills by participating in academic activities such as medical conferences. Because medical organizations or universities do not require them to train in academic activities, the majority of healthcare professionals conduct academic activities through imitation or self-initiation. Consequently, these activities do not lead to quality research.

To improve such situation, clinical research workshops have been held since 2004, in which healthcare professionals who are tied up with their daily work voluntarily participated and learn knowledge and skills about clinical epidemiology and biostatistics necessary for their academic activities.

A clinical research workshop in a one- to four-night camp will simulate the entire process of clinical research, starting with the idea, the design of the study, data acquisition, data management, statistical analysis and dissertation, with one instructor consistently teaching all stages of clinical research to the participants.

Many practitioners are looking for specific skills that can be used in their work immediately. On the other hand, if these skills are not accompanied by theory, not only will they lead to misapplication, but they will not motivate practitioners.

In the clinical research workshop, a lecture on theory is followed immediately by practical training using JMP, where students repeatedly check how the things they learn in the lecture match the output of JMP, and then continue to create tables and graphs for their papers.

It would be wonderful if this kind of practical training could help raise the level of academic activities in Japan.

Plenary Session - From Details on Demand to Wandering Workflows: Getting to know JMP® Hover Label Extensions

Nascif Abousalh-Neto, JMP Principal Software Developer, SAS

Lisa Grossman, JMP Associate Test Engineer, SAS

    The JMP Hover Label extensions introduced in JMP 15 go beyond traditional details-on-demand functionality to enable exciting new possibilities. Until now, hover labels exposed a limited set of information derived from the current graph and the underlying visual element, with limited customization available through the use of label column properties. This presentation shows how the new extensions let users implement not only full hover label content customization but also new exploratory patterns and integration workflows. We will explore the high-level commands that support the effortless visual augmentation of hover labels by means of dynamic data visualization thumbnails, providing the starting point for exploratory workflows known as data drilling or drill down. We will then look into the underlying low-level infrastructure that allows power users to control and refine these new workflows using JMP Scripting Language extension points. We will see examples of "drill out" integrations with external systems as well as how to build an add-in that displays multiple images in a single hover label.
