We live in an attention #economy & what #Tweetiatricians have known for decades (#Twitter started in 2006): importance of drawing attention to factual science-based information as compared to #misinformation & #disinformation, especially on #vaccines

You have to be fast & prolific to play catch up to this. I have 77K tweets, a moderate sized band of 6K followers interested enough to tolerate my volume but use of hashtags allows reach across Twittersphere. Trending hashtags = better for riding a way for that attention economy
If is unclear if we are now so siloed that tweets are ineffective with anti-vaxx. But not all anti-vaxx are QAnon

LOVE being faculty at @MIT this semester for a class on #dataanalytics & #datascience. I tend to PM my mentees, especially women and #blackexcellence to start to prepare questions to ask. Too often people stay silent. Speak up. Never be embarrassed to show #curiosity.
Listening right now to mid-semester progress reports from teams and am feeling like such a proud #datascience #BigData #bigdataanalytics momma. Bear cubs doing good (well AND good in world)

LOVE that this is a space within @MIT that focuses on #SDoH and #equity.
Literally right now, hearing about a study on #socialmedia chatter as a driver of vaccines hesitancy driven by #Twitter - start postulate "cause/effect" by an incident that happens within days after a vaccine - like ppl automatically assume a death is "caused" by vaccine

This is VERY important because we already have a mistaken belief that being "a good person" or "having empathy" can erase or mitigate racial bias or disparity when study after study proves opposite. Now we're encoding bias into #algorithms and #AI that will be called #DataDriven
This is the new frontier of #systems driven #bias. Look at the demographics of who is in #technology and #BigDataAnalytics and #AI. Look at the reputation of culture of these spaces. This puts everyone at risk even if you think you "benefit" from the bias. Inaccuracy is harm.
Just look at the #COVID19 #pandemic. Who correctly predicted AND took correct actions for good outcomes?

The risk of the most vulnerable became YOUR risk

if your #sytems and #bigdata and #BigDataAnalytics fail to capture reality

your real life results will be failure.

The field of #psychology has MANY problems. SO many levels of wrong:

1-clinicians designing torture
2-a strategy to exploit the lack of ethics by APA leadership to gain scope of practice
3-monetizing harm
4-validating minority distrust of #mentalhealth

nytimes.com/2015/05/01/us/…
The details are damning. It was clearly about expanding turf/scope of practice with a “deal with the devil” to bypass civilian regulations & go after DoD💰💰💰

There was not any commitment to human rights but manipulating words to craft unethical policy

There have been reputation repair attempts, to distance self from torture, however professional societies tend to fixate on gaining or protecting turf & scope of practice. They use patients for “stories” but in reality show little care about patients.

Umbereen S Nehal MD MPH: who is this person? Several people have been asking

A thread

Where am I from? Hooboy.
Let’s say, citizen of the world, human ping pong ball. Third culture kid. Genetic mutt

Born: 🇺🇸
🇵🇰 parents - when my parents born colonial rule, pre-Pakistan
To thoroughly annoy my Twitter bestie, @DrvanTilburg

Am an ENFP - a cross between Snoopy, Robin Willians, Ellen Degeneres, Dr. Seuss, Charles Dickens, Upton Sinclair

I border on ENTP - love new info and love to challenge in order to break through barriers or limitations
My great-grandfather was given title "Khan Bahadur" (brave). As a judge, a brown man under Colonial rule, he threw the book at a British attorney. "Learn the law" if in his courtroom. Hence my stiff moral backbone

My mom & me:

(She loves this song)

Sábado, sabadete, por lo que hoy toca hilo sobre #privacidad y #protecciondedatos o (des)protección de datos. Tema central de hoy: ¿Por qué estamos actualmente en una situación en la que la privacidad y la falta de transparencia se han convertido en cuestiones legales centrales?
Obviamente, se debe a un rápido desarrollo tecnológico, pero quizás sea útil para nuestra discusión sobre #transparencia, #privacidad y #perfiles.
para cavar un poco más profundo en el por qué, y no en el cómo. ¡Adelante hilo!
Dos hechos tecnológicos hicieron posible esta enorme transformación: 1) el desarrollo de hardware informático y 2) el desarrollo de un software que permitió que muchos ordenadores funcionaran como uno solo. ¿Qué supusieron estos grandes hitos para las organizaciones y empresas?
