In this changing shopping climate, shopping malls are doing one of two things. They are either closing down, or they are actually rethinking what they offer to the customers. With the internet becoming the primary tool for shopping, a mall that wants to survive has to offer something different. This is where it is important to look at the surviving malls. One thing a mall owner can do is look at what the thriving malls are doing right so that it can do some of the things the mall does. Roberto Santiago himself is a pioneer of the new mall with Manaira Shopping.


One way to bring back the malls is to change it from a primarily shopping platform to more of a hang out platform. People also go to the malls to meet one another and hang out. It is especially common for young people to hang around and enjoy their time at a mall. In this case, it is important to set up activities which enable people to do that. Among the activities some malls are setting up are arcades. However, there are even newer types of arcades that are popping up in malls. This type of arcade is merely a gaming center.


Manaira Shopping has at least 3 arcades for people to visit. It also has plenty of other places where people can hang out and meet with one another. There are lounges that allow people to just relax and enjoy the company of one another. Manaira Shopping is also a place where people can get an education. This makes it even better for the mall because it has a strong reputation for contributing to the future of children and other students.


As far as finding a direction to go in with enhancements, the best thing for a mall owner to do is use his creativity in order to come up with some really good solutions. While there can still be stores in the mall, the best thing to do is to make them more of a complementary activity as opposed to the primary activity of a customer.


Eric Lefkofsky’s analytics startup company, Tempus, aims to become the largest source of cancer care data in the world. They have partnered with Precision Health AI, obtaining access to CancerLinQ, a database of 600,000 treatment results. With this Big Data, the Tempus team should have enough information to establish patterns highlighting better cancer treatments. With their current contracts and nearly 50 partnerships with research hospitals, Tempus will reach 25-30 percent of cancer patients next year.

Tempus’s analytical machine learning platform is interactive and allows physicians to deliver more personalized care. It takes unstructured data and builds an organized database of the patient’s information. It analyzes the DNA of cancer patients to give molecular data which uncovers more personalized treatment options for patients. It also generates action taking insights into better outcomes. The goal is for patients to benefit from previous patients via tools that learn as Tempus gathers more data.

CancerLinQ receives data from more than 100 practices and hospitals and more than 2,000 physicians. The challenge CancerLinQ faces is to assemble the data from medical records which are not always in the same format. According to Dr. Hudis, chairman of the board of governors, raw data is taken in, cleaned, curated and analyzed. This provides additional strength and capacity.
