Want to apply #deeplearning in your #regulatory #genomics analyses but overwhelmed by suite of interpretation tools? Check out ExplaiNN: interpretable and transparent neural networks for genomics with @NovakovskyG @ofornes @sara_mostafavi @WyWyWa 🧵👇
biorxiv.org/cgi/content/sh…
ExplaiNN is an adaptation of NAMs from @agarwl_ & team for genomic sequences - predictions are a linear combination of independent CNNs- each consisting of 1 conv. layer with a single filter and two FC layers. This seemingly simple approach performs similar to multi-layer CNNs1/6
It provides importance of discovered motifs by mere visualisation of weights of the output layer. No need for filter nullification or clustering of importance scores from attribution methods! ExplaiNN on ATAC-seq of mouse immune system recapitulates results of AITAC model 2/6

Latest UPDATE on the #TFR (Travel Rule) trilogue:

EU institutions are working to finalise the #TFR text to implement the #travelrule in Europe. Please find below the latest details. The aimed-for deadline for conclusion is still the first week of June.

1/9
Key issues on table:

The provisions introduced by the @Europarl_EN requiring #verification of information for each transfer of assets, the additional requirements applied to transfers to #unhosted wallets and the #blacklist of non-compliant entities.

2/9
In the past weeks, the @EUCouncil has taken onboard the concerns from the blockchain & crypto #industry, as well as those of regulators and competent #authorities (!), that flagged the impracticality and unintended consequences these provisions would have.

“interconnection queues” and obtaining the necessary #ImpactStudies and #permits from #each grid operator has risen from around 2.1 years for projects built in 2000-2010 to around 3.7 years for those built in 2011-2021.

#decentralizedgrid issues are key.

"researchers found that only 23% of the projects seeking grid connection between 2000 and 2016 have actually been built."

“The grid operators have limited staff to conduct these studies,”
“Maybe they haven't ramped up their workforce quickly enough.”

#Gridlock
#SkillShortages
The inability of #renewables to deliver #LargeScale solutions may NOT be due to #financing constraints. #Regulatory ones matter too.

As prices fall, the gap btw #LevelisedCostOfEnergy for #Rooftop and #SolarUtility shows, scale matters.

Who else attended today's @OECD Development Co-operation Report 2021 launch event on shaping a just #DigitalTransformation?✋

Panelists expanded upon some of the report's key themes, including:

📅 Acting now!
⬆️ More #coordination
🖼️ Strong #frameworks
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 #InclusiveDevelopment
But we also heard a lot about #DigitalPublicGoods (#DPGs). Like... A LOT a lot.

So, what's the connection between #DPGs and a just, #inclusive #DigitalTransformation? Why have so many #donors, national #governments, and #tech experts alike expressed interest in #DPG solutions?
Well, they all agree that #DigitalTransformation is at a tipping point globally, with the divisions between wealthy and developing nations especially stark: 96% of the world's unconnected people live in developing countries.

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

A lot of wisdom in this post about the effects of #dataRegulation and #regulatory #compliance throughout not just an organization or #enterprise but through the greater society as a whole.

The first thing I noticed were the popups asking me about my cookies and acceptance...
the exact reason they were there I didnt understand at the time, but now I see its related to #gdpr. The effects of acceptance or denial, I dont know. I dont have the time to read the fine-print, but deep down I hope its doing something good for my #dataPrivacy.

And just as...
Mahima and Nalini write to regarding the #regulatory rules, #dataPrivacy legislation and the #compliance therein for the enterprises of India and for #accessibility and #open banking-- its my hope that all the new #dataPrivacy #regulations like #GDPR, #CPRA, #ColoPA, #VCDPA...

Shout out to participants in #clinicaltrials. I’m enrolled in an NIH RADx-supported trial that requires me to do #COVID19 rapid tests & PCR every other day within a time window, & then drive a pkg to a FedEx every other day by 3p. This is the 4th study I’ve joined in my life…
The studies I’ve been in have ranged from pregnancy outcomes yrs ago to #COVID19 diagnostics. I keep joining them because I believe #ScienceWillWin, but also because it’s important to be reminded what a genuine hassle it is to be in a study. /2
In the very best of circumstances, it’s an inconvenience. It ALWAYS costs participants something, whether it’s missed work, lost wages, childcare, gas for a 🚗, discomfort, or more. And it’s always one more thing in a day that may already have way too many things already (🙋🏻‍♀️). /3

India's #crypto arc in a global perspective: India lags the world by an average of 2-3 years in terms of #crypto #regulatory framework development. We are now on the 3rd Inter-Ministerial Committee on crypto. Some pts from my session at #HODLConference2021 @IAMAIForum
India's adoption of #cryptocurrency is ramping up exponentially, signalling a clear demand for these tokens in the country. India recently ranked a whopping second on Chainalysis's Global #Crypto Adoption Index @chainalysis @SEBI_India @nsitharaman @RBI @NPCI_NPCI
However, the market cap of #India #crypto projects are approx. $12 billion USD which is a small fraction of the global market cap which stands at approx. $2 trillion USD @0xPolygon @WazirXIndia @PersistenceOne @QuickswapDEX @FrontierDotXYZ @UniLend_Finance @TheMahaDAO

#Wonk warning: a #thread on social cost of #carbon (SCC). We at @CVEPLLC expected @JoeBiden not just to reinstate higher SCC in his #dayone #climate order but also to look at incorporating #environmental #justice into it.

He did, and it matters. #OOTT /1
Background: when #federal #agencies write rules, they try to maximize net benefits or minimize net costs.

The goal is that adding up all benefits for (and costs to) society + all costs to (and benefits for) regulated parties should be > 0. /2
In this context, SCC offers a way for agencies to “monetize” societal benefits of #climate rules. Oversimplification version: Benefit = (tons of GHG avoided) * (SCC, in $/ton). There are couple of quirks, tho. /3

Hmm. Now this is an... interesting move!

@ukhomeoffice is (unilaterally?) collapsing two Commissioner roles into one:
jobs.lawgazette.co.uk/job/699745/bio…

While HO's excuse may seem superficially plausible, one shouldn't forget both @surcamcom and the #BiometricsCommissioner have been...
...critical of @ukhomeoffice's approach and lack of adequate #safeguards and #oversight of its use of #biometric tech.

Here's the #BiometricsCommissioner admonishing @metpoliceuk for misrepresenting him on #AFR:

And @surcamcom has been a consistent...
...advocate for strong #independent #regulatory #oversight and against #SurveillanceCreep.

And as he - in fact both Commissioners - point out:



There are also significant practical issues, e.g. will @pritipatel resource this as one or two offices? And...

Wow! So, having been co-opted by Government during the pandemic - waving through the processing of tens of millions of people's #SpecialCategory #PersonalData without adequate #transparency - @ICOnews now openly proposes favouring businesses & authorities over citizens' rights... Image
We're to be told simply to "bear with" it, while our #rights are trampled & abused.

Look VERY closely at item 5, page 3:
ico.org.uk/media/about-th…

What deal has @ICOnews cut for supporting @10DowningStreet's #trade ambitions? And what new Codes will it expedite, having taken...
...over TWO YEARS (and counting!) to update its primary statutory Code, following #GDPR?

You could certainly call this is "an approach".

Whether it's "#regulatory", or the worst sort of enabling, is becoming clearer by the day.

Well, this is an astonishingly poor effort from @royalsociety; a #DataGovernance "explainer" that tips its hand by its examples (i.e. health data) but not once in 28 pages mentions significant bodies like @HRA_Latest, for #ResearchEthics approval, or #CAG!

While there are a whole bunch of players in what is an increasingly crowded/confused/confusing landscape, to miss out two of the key *statutory* #governance bodies seems more than a little remiss 🤦🏻‍♂️

Thread > Temporary public realm changes: 10-point checklist

How can spaces adapt for the new normal?

A challenge for local authorities and others, for legal and planning frameworks, and creativity in re-imagining hidden and underused spaces.

Thanks to @DrSDMillington (1/12)
1. #Safety

Barriers between people and traffic need careful consideration - TFL research suggests removing some barriers can promote safer and slower driving.

Where possible, it may be safer to close streets to traffic.

(TFL research: foi.tfl.gov.uk/FOI-2274-1718/…)
2. #Adaptability

A key quality of Tactical Urbanism - to ensure places can adapt to changing trading conditions and help manage other potential disruptions to high streets

e.g. 2m social distancing - how quickly could infrastructure be reconfigured if guidance changes?
