While the internet has been revolutionizing our access to data and information via our computers, computers have been miniaturizing to the point where a smart phone offers capabilities that many desktops could not deliver less than a decade ago. Mobile browser technology and app-based delivery for software has now delivered into our hands further access to data via phones, pads and tablets. Whether it be in the form of chemical calculators, accessing publishers websites or public domain databases containing millions of chemical structures, mobile chemistry is here and is expanding in capability and coverage at a dramatic rate. This presentation will review the status of mobile devices and how they are being used to enable chemists.

Mobile chemistry and "Generation App" Mobile chemistry and "Generation App" Presentation Transcript

  • Mobile devices and “Generation App” Antony Williams ICIC Conference October 2011
  • Mobilizing Chemistry
    • We live in “Generation App”
    • Mobile devices, apps, cloud-based services and databases provide “Chemistry in the Hand”
    • Hundreds of apps are appearing: iOS (iPhone, iPads etc), Android, Blackberry etc.
    • It’s not just Chemistry…Science has gone Mobile..
  • There’s an “App for That”
  • There’s an “App for That”
  • Siri Knows Chemistry
  • There’s a lot of Mobile Chemistry!
    • Categorization of chemistry apps. More later…
  • Scientific Publishers Apps
    • Scientific publishers release apps to:
      • Provide mobile access to content
      • Search and deliver content to its registered users
      • Greater accessibility means greater readership
      • Revenue generation UNLIKELY via sales of Apps. Revenue comes from the content
  • Scientific Publisher Apps (ACS) http://tinyurl.com/ykaprhf
  • Scientific Publisher Apps (Nature) http://www.nature.com/mobileapps/
  • SciVerse ScienceDirect http://tinyurl.com/3czq37y
  • Sciverse Scopus http://www.info.sciverse.com/scopus
  • Science App http://www.aaas.org/news/releases/2010/1108science_app.shtml
  • Online Tools for Publications
  • “ Papers” for Managing Publications
  • “ Mendeley” for Managing Publications
  • Wikipedia Chemistry
  •  
  • Wikipedia Chemistry
  •  
  • Structure Drawing as an entry point
    • Structure entry as an entry point to:
      • Calculations (formula, mass)
      • Predictions (local or server-based)
        • Systematic name generation, logP, pKa, NMR prediction, etc.
      • Database lookup
        • On device dictionaries (because space doesn’t matter!)
        • Internet-hosted databases (because the latest content does matter)
  • Chemical Structure Drawing ChemJuice
  • ChemDoodle Mobile
  • Chemical Structure Drawing Mobile Molecular Datasheet
  • 1 st Structure Lookup of ChemSpider
  • 1 st Structure Lookup of ChemSpider
  • 2 nd Structure Lookup of ChemSpider
  • 2 nd Structure Lookup of ChemSpider
  • ChemSpider Mobile
  • Text and Structure Searching
  • Exact and Skeleton Search
  • Open in Browser
    • Coming soon:
      • Substructure searching
      • Similarity searching
  • Chemical Reactions
    • Chemical reactions are very amenable to serving up on mobile applications
    • What is available now?
      • Teaching basics of chemical reactions
      • Look-ups against reaction databases
      • Reaction mechanisms
  • Named Reactions http://www.synthetiqsolutions.com/named-reactions/
  • Organic Named Reactions http://tinyurl.com/3d54fvv
  • ReactionFlash http://tinyurl.com/3nt54w6
  • Reaction101 http://molmatinf.com/reaction101.html
  • Yield 101 http://molmatinf.com/yield101.html
  • Reaction Database Look-up
  • Reaction Database Look-up
  • “ App-Based Spectroscopy”
    • What could be possible for spectra?
      • Process
      • View
      • Predict
      • Analyse
  • “ App-Based Spectroscopy”
    • What could be possible for spectra?
      • Process
      • View
      • Predict
      • Analyse
    • Already available
      • Do we need to process?
      • View
      • Predict
      • Analyse
  • Spectra online
  • JSpecView http://jspecview.sourceforge.net/
    • Open Source Java applet from Bob Lancashire
    • Supports display of JCAMP format spectra
    • Used on ChemSpider and supported in browsers with Java support
  • JSpecView http://jspecview.sourceforge.net/
    • Open Source Java applet from Bob Lancashire
    • Supports display of JCAMP format spectra
    • Used on ChemSpider and supported in browsers with Java support
    • An open-source and free HTML5 toolkit.
    • For desktop and mobile browsers.
    ChemDoodle Web Components
  • Spectra in the hand
  • Sourcing information about SciApps http://www.scimobileapps.com/
    • An increasing number of Science Apps
    • Different platforms, different versions
    • How do you track them? Search them?
    • Where can developers post information about their apps?
    • iTunes does not segregate based on science
    • Introducing the SciMobileApps Wiki …
  •  
  • SciMobileApps Wiki
  • SciMobileApps Wiki
  • Why not use Wikipedia???
  • Changes in Mobile
    • “ Apps” are originally iOs branded
    • And then came Android…
  • Tweet to App in 3 Days http:// www.slideshare.net/ekinssean/green-solvents-app
  • Social Networking to Apps
  • Green Solvents http:// itunes.apple.com/us/app/green-solvents/id446670983
  • Siri Knows Chemistry???
  • Siri Accesses Information
  • Chemists Know Chemistry
  • Conclusions
    • More mobile adoption is inevitable – mobile is simply “smaller computers”
    • The discrimination of Apps will be based on:
      • Ease of use
      • Quality of prediction algorithms
      • Access to quality content
    • Running list of Chemistry Apps is updated here: http://www.slideshare.net/AntonyWilliams/
  • Smart Phones
  • In Press
  • There’s an “App for That”
  • There’s an “App for That”
