#Medical #AI has the worst superpower... Racism

We've put out a preprint reporting concerning findings. AI can do something humans can't: recognise the self-reported race of patients on x-rays. This gives AI a path to produce health disparities.

This is a big deal, so we wanted to do it right. We did dozens of experiments, replication at multiple labs, on numerous datasets and tasks.

We are releasing all the code, as well as new labels to identify racial identity for multiple public datasets.

2/8
Humans can't detect race better than chance, but AI performs absurdly well on the task. As you can see here, AUC scores are in the high 90s, and are maintained on external validation on completely distinct datasets and across multiple different imaging tasks.

It seems to me that our slippery #Tory government is trying to change the rules of its own lockdown easement – again.
Robert #Jenrick has said England is going to move into a period where legal restrictions related to Covid-19 will be relaxed, meaning that decisions
on whether to consider following them – like wearing masks – will become a matter of personal choice. Does that seem like pre-emptive blame-shifting to you?
Boris #Johnson is determined to lift social distancing restrictions on July 19 – and to make the changes irrevocable.
Logically, the only time at which such a choice is reasonable would be when the risk of contracting #Covid has become negligible.
#Jenrick’s comment suggests that this will not be the case. His suggestion that people will exercise “personal responsibility” in their choice

Whistleblowing #GP's Letter to Sir Simon Stevens - go.shr.lc/3dBEhv2 via @Shareaholic
Following the suspension of #Hampshire #GP Doctor Sam White by #NHS England for publicly questioning #Covid protocols, his solicitors Philip Hyland of PJH Law have fired off the following letter to Sir Simon Stevens, Chief Executive Officer of #NHS England.
The letter lays out accusations of #unlawful actions by #NHS executives, #HM Government, #SAGE, #MHRA and other authorities.
This is huge, a must read for anyone who finds themselves in any way threatened by any public body over any aspect of the #Covid crisis.

Compilation of Parliamentary Financial Links to Private #Healthcare
This represents the latest list of recent or present financial links between #parliamentarians and #individuals or #companies involved in private healthcare.
up-to-date as of March 2nd 2014. It has increased !
#MPs and #Lords are able to vote on legislation, even when they have a direct #financial interest.
This happened with the Health and Social Care Act, which saw the #NHS being forced into a world of an external market.
The legislation was written for industry, by industry and is part of the overall plan for it's demise and the eventual takeover by #private health insurance companies.

HANDS OFF MY #NHS: WHO IS DIDO #HARDING AND WHAT IS 1828?

LAST WEEK, MATT #HANCOCK ANNOUNCED THAT PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND WOULD BE ABOLISHED, CITING ITS FAILURE TO HANDLE THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC AS THE REASON FOR ITS REPLACEMENT.
In its place, the new National Institute for Health Protection will take over the work that has already been set motion to tackle #COVID-19. Set to be modelled on Germany’s Robert #Koch Institute, the country’s own organisation dealing with pandemic response,
it is now at the forefront of the United Kingdom’s handling of what many predict to be a brutal second wave. However, unlike the presidents of the Robert Koch Institute, who are microbiologists and specialists in infectious epidemiology respectively,

Covid-19: Social Murder, they wrote—elected, unaccountable, and unrepentant

What went wrong in the global governance of #covid-19?

After two million deaths, we must have redress for mishandling the #pandemic
Murder is an emotive word. In law, it requires premeditation. Death must be deemed to be unlawful. How could “murder” apply to failures of a pandemic response?
Perhaps it can’t, and never will, but it is worth considering. When #politicians and #experts say that they are willing to allow tens of thousands of premature deaths for the sake of population immunity or in the hope of propping up the economy,

At least 122,000 #NHS staff now have long COVID. And while #NHS staff were unprotected, #PPE contracts were being handed out by government ministers to “#VIPs” and #associates, some of whom had no experience in supplying #medical equipment.
Why didn’t we have the #PPE we needed?
In 2016, a simulation exercise called Exercise #Cygnus was carried out to test how the UK would perform if a #pandemic struck. The report wasn’t published at the time, but after mounting pressure it was published in October 2020.
It revealed that there had been gaping holes in the #government’s pandemic preparedness.
The #Cygnus report had recommended that a single health body be set up, called a “Pandemic Concept of Operations” to help to avoid chaos in a real pandemic. This wasn’t set up.

By not only advocating for #HealthPromotion in general, but by also educating #patients directly and the public at large of the preventive measures necessary to avoid illness and injury, it's not an exaggeration to call #nurses out as #noble..

I have been bothered. I am sure you will be a bit bothered as well. Over the past few years, many people have died. However the trend has been that so many of the deaths are blood pressure related!

What is more sad is the fact that the #male gender is the one mostly affected.

New #UK science body could be used as ‘cover for cronyism’

A new £800m #government #science and #defence research agency will be exempt from existing procurement rules, prompting warnings from #Labour that it could be used as “cover for #cronyism”.

Kalau pemilihan Ketua IA ITB yg dikedepankan soal bersih2 HTI, FPI, PKI.. ini sama saja dengan mengajak alumni melihat masa lalu. Mundur ke belakang. 👎

Masalah yg kita hadapi jauh lbh besar. Visi harus jauh ke depan, inovatif, kolaborasi, sains, teknologi, humaniora. 👍
Kalau yg dikedepankan soal paham2, maka hasilnya spt sebelumnya, keberadaan Salman ITB pun dipertanyakan oleh 1976 alumni.

Kalau visioner dan kolaborasi yg jd prinsip, maka kerja bersama spt antara @Sinergi_IAITB dan @salmanitb spt peduli bencana ini hasilnya.

Lihat bedanya?
Saya belum menentukan akan memilih siapa. Tapi saya punya kriteria:
- harus independen dan selesai dengan dirinya, tidak punya bos yg bisa mempengaruhi sikapnya
- bisa mengharmonikan kembali alumni
- punya visi kemajuan yg jauh ke depan, dg sains, teknologi, humaniora dan agama

I just spit into a tube for my employer. So my keycard would be "unlocked" and I could get into my very own office. Where my property has been for very many months. Now yeah, I guess #COVID19 means this is just what #workers do now. But here are #disability implications:
-- my spit, which has my DNA of course, is now a QR code
-- my employer now has access to my DNA
-- my employer now knows I'm on #opiates
-- my employer now knows I'm on #Lexapro
-- my employer now knows things about me that I don't even know about me b/c I've never given DNA
In return for this enormous amount of data I've just given my employer, what do I get? Access to my property, that is, my #poetry books, my #journals, my mementos from across a decade & etc
