👀I noticed that a lot of #FUD in #blockchain #community comes from a lack of #knowledge so here I am to help everyone interested in #technology and #money, not #FUD, accusations and fear.

1. Knowing the #smartcontract address of the token before listing means almost nothing, it's just another contract on the #blockchain without any functionality,

I can make thousands of those every day #shitcoin 😅
2. To make such #smartcontract tradeable it has to be added to decentralized exchange - #DEX which is implementation of #AMM #algorithm, most of dexes are working based on pairs... so we need to have #pair to be tradeable on DEX 🥰

This is EVP Margrethe @Vestager speech "Democratic values in a digitalised world" @HumboldtUni 25.10.21. It explains rationales, set up basis for what I think will be a successful #EuropeanDigitalLaw! A speech that will continue to resonate for us #Thread ec.europa.eu/commission/com…
Late 1990: large platforms “emerged and started organizing the internet for what would soon become millions of users around the world.” For 1st time "the platforms acted as global “match-makers” B2C. With “ever-growing match-making” platforms have power, & control. 1/1
Power & control are particularly important 4 #socialmediaplatforms. "Clicks matter. The more content is seen and shared, the higher the income from advertising. Hence, it is not so much the quality or the truthfulness of the content that matters but its “virality”" 1/2

China has warned investing in Metaverse stating its still infancy and could likely end in tears for investors

Meanwhile ByteDance has bought VR gear maker Pico for $1.4 billion

#China #Bytedanc #Metaverse #Pico #VR #VRChat
#Pico was valued by PE investors in March 2021 at nearly $155 Million and now #Bytedance has purchased Pico at $1.4 Billion… a very aggressive valuation for a VR gear manufacturer
VR is the interface of Metaverse, but at present, the most widely used scene of consumer VR is games.

At start he speaks about purpose of life personal , National ,spiritual , social which everyone should decide or atleast think of it and act accordingly.

Then about need of reinvention where you do certain things at certain time , you flexibly change than being rigid on life .
As In 19's industrial revolution brought complete change in whole world rajiv ji predicts that Artificial intelligence revolution is the next big thing .

Where owner use big data to train #Algorithm & it trains consumer .

It’s well known that our society is infected by concepts which make us unhappy, damage our communities and endanger the biological world. These concepts infect us, we become contagious, then we infect those around us.

#KatesGarrotte
We know the sort of concepts they are. They look like this:
–You need more
–Take, don’t give
–Winner takes all
–Greed is good
–Appearances matter
–Those in power deserve their power
–Those with wealth deserve their wealth
–It’s your fault you’re poor

#KatesGarrotte
Some of these concepts simply misinterpret Darwinism. Some are demographic falsehoods. Some are empirically false. All lead us to a dangerous outcome for our species.
I consider them viruses–contagious & malign concepts which are part of a mind plague that’s harming us all.

Thread on the LOOMIS CASE and the use of #ArtificialIntelligence in Justice.
COMPAS is an algorithm used in the criminal courts of the State of Wisconsin (Correctional Offender Management Profiling for Alternative Sanctions) to assess the risk of recidivism when sentencing.👇
This #algorithm was challenged in State v. Loomis.
Mr. Loomis admitted the charges and the Court, in imposing sentence, took into account the likelihood of recidivism as determined by COMPAS.
Mr. Loomis appealed the conviction on the grounds that his right to a #fairtrial👇
namely to be sentenced on the basis of accurate information, to receive an individualised sentence and not on the basis of general assessments, had been violated.
The appeal was dismissed at first instance on the grounds that the Court "used the COMPAS risk assessment to 👇

Noting that, just like the #AppsLibrary, #DTAC *still* doesn't have a required section on clinical #efficacy - and that #impacts are much more than just (avoiding) #risks - alongside focusing on the #algorithms and #data, have you considered asking a few more basic questions... Image
...such as:

1) Will the proposed intervention have a direct impact on health, mental health and/or wellbeing?

If so, what specifically is the intended impact and how will it be measured? If not, why are you doing it?

2) Will the proposed intervention interact with or have...
...any impacts on social, economic and/or environmental factors that would 'indirectly' affect health?

If so, what are they and how will they be measured - and, if necessary, mitigated? If not, provide evidence of ALL of the potential impacts you have actually considered...

Important to keep in mind that #AI is made by humans. Our flaws and biases get encoded and amplified. We need the right diversity of people at the table to design and implement #ArtificialIntelliegence and #ML. #humancentereddesign for all of humanity. #design
Who determines definitions, labels of #data cut offs? Too often we get all nerdy on which variables & factors in the model. But are we even using the right data? #tech #technology types might consider reading Maya Angelou & Toni Morrison and others to think outside the box
#AI
Example: many people are interested in #SDoH #socialdeterminantsofhealth & #data for it.
Who has existing large #databases?
Banks
Banks are traditionally risk averse, block/exclude those who are labeled high risk
So can their data improve health equity?

Abbas Ibn Firnas was a very creative engineer and inventor who successfully constructed the first successful flying machine. His flying machine was a controlled one and he also demonstrated its flight, many centuries before the designs of Leonardo Da Vinci.

The software industry, i.e. #SiliconValley*#WallStreet is *the most corrupt* industry because unlike hardware ("physical stuff") or the service industry ("human beings"), software is made a complete mystery.
However, if we start with the #recursive-#algorithm:

Step 1. Have faith in the #recursive algorithm.
Step 2. Feed the outputs back into the algorithm.
Step 3. Repeat.

Then we can began to understand how software systems work.
Simple example "farming":

Step 1. Plant seeds, have faith!
Step 2. Take the seeds you produce & sow them back in the soil.
Step 3. Repeat!

Facebook Quietly Stymied Traffic to Left-Leaning News Outlets: Report When #Facebook tweaked its #news feed #algorithm in 2017 to reduce the visibility of political news, the company’s engineers intentionally designed the system to disproportionately impact left-leaning outlets
Effectively choking off their traffic in the process.
According to a Wall Street Journal report this week, Facebook bigwigs at the time were concerned about how these changes would affect right-leaning news outlets and wanted to avoid adding fuel

So it turns out that not only is @zoom_us' #FacialRecognition #algorithm so #racist it chops black people's heads off...

It's getting to the point where we need an industry reboot; if #SiliconValley genuinely wants to build '#EthicslAI', it must delete 'em all and start again. Respecting #HumanRights this time.

So @cabinetofficeuk (@GDSTeam) has updated the #DataEthicsFramework for government and the public sector today - the first version of which was published by @MattHancock in 2018, when he was at @DCMS:
gov.uk/government/pub…

Two obvious questions:

1) Where are the published...
...ratings for all of the government & public sector data projects / programmes that have been started since 2018?

A framework that neither demands nor provides publicly visible outputs surely fails on two of its own 'overarching principles'; #transparency and #accountability...
2) Other than "consult with your team leader", what happens when a project 'fails' the framework - say a national programme that doesn't do a #DPIA, or a body that employs a #discriminatory #algorithm?

An 'ethics' framework without meaningful #consequences ain't #ethical at all.

So at exactly what point "over the weekend" did @GavinWilliamson realise the system for which he is responsible, which should have been checked thoroughly, was not "fair and robust"?

The Minister (who's clearly fond of his whips) is far too cavalier. Image
This ain't over by a LONG way, and while there are no right answers right now - cf. this and rest of [Thread]: - @10DowningStreet would do well to reassure (future) voters it has people with a proper sense and appropriate grasp of detail in place...
...#data, #AI and #algorithm-obsessed Governments that avoid #accountability and treat their own citizens as just so much '#GarbageInGarbageOut' don't have much of a future.
