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.

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...

Every investor should be using algorithms nowadays. It simply is very difficult for humans to beat algos. In the pic you can see how algo used for Bitcoin trading would have been able to avoid 2020 march crypto crash with fast portfolio liquidation. #BTC #investments #Algorithms
This algo, which I have been developing would have liquidated 97% of portfolio in two days from beginning of the March crash and at the bottom it had already bought the portfolio back. (Note: this is with historical data)
Here is some background for my work. I am building an investor platform for tokenised assets ( Idea with Lohko wallet is that investor can freely manage and decide their asset allocation, but each asset “basket” is managed by conservative algo.

Nearly 5 years ago, Jeremy #Corbyn pushed open the doors into the spacious and airy Offices of the Leader of the Opposition, overlooking the River Thames on Victoria Embankment. He already had some suspicions at this point,
but he could never have fully comprehended what was being plotted against him less than half a mile away at Labour's headquarters on Victoria Street.
Today is the deadline for submissions to the internal Labour inquiry, chaired by Martin Forde QC,
which is examining the past behaviour of former senior party staff. I've just written to the inquiry and these were my experiences.
As one of the first staff appointments in the office of the former Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell, I worked on the same corridor as #Corbyn's

The irony in Facebook deleting my account of 11 years for sharing a meme of a Dr. Fauci quote from 2015 that they labeled "potentially harmful to someone's physical safety" in ref. to HCQ is that it hurts me most I can't view my deceased family/friends.
The irony is that if something happened to me, none of my friends/family would have ANYTHING to view of me. I can't rebuild 11 years of memories, photos, writings. Digital ERASURE - not censorship - all because I support my country? America is turning into China. It's wrong.
Another sad part of it is that I don't even really want the account back. I want people to know what they did, but I don't want to continue to use their platform or services (which is nothing compared to the real technology I've used in the past).

1/5 #TropiCon20 Identifying individuals is crucial for #conservation. If individual identity is known #supervised #classification can be used. What if we don’t know who is calling? We tested if #unsupervised methods can distinguish between #gibbon females (listen below).
2/5 #TropiCon20 Gibbons are #apes found in Southeast #Asia. The recording above is from one #gibbon female, and the recording below is from a different #gibbon female. Can you hear (or see) the difference? We classified > 30 females with > 95% accuracy using #supervised methods.
3/5 #TropiCon20 #Supervised methods need labelled training #data; #unsupervised techniques don't. We used an existing dataset of #gibbon female calls to test how well three #unsupervised algorithms could distinguish between #gibbons. #Affinity propagation #clustering did best!

Uncivil & Outright Criminal Behaviour seems to have been normalised throughout societies everywhere;

Still struggling to get everything in my online courses to work, but today I also fiddled with long neglected research. I'm coding articles for a project on language of gender and transness in research on gender and facial recognition. (With @MaryAnnSaundrs & @LailaMFerreira.) 1/
And I bring you this thought: "Since an ethnic group or ethnicity is a category of people who identify with each other based on common ancestral, social, cultural or national experience, many possible ethnicity classes can be identified. . ."
". . . To simplify the problem, it is recommended that the maximum amount is less than 10."


It's too complicated to have more than 9 ethnicities in this world. "It is recommended" that there are no more than 9. 3/

#Cyber theft of US Data, IP is enabled by our inability to properly recognize Intangible Assets, which would otherwise drive proactive measures. Blaming foreign "Military-Civil Fusion" causes confusion, shifts accountability.
Quantifying intangible asset value enables 21st century revenue & operational models. "@nokia’s sales from #patents & brand #licensing reached €1.5 bn last year, [enough] to qualify as one of its four main strategic pillars."
Reactive pricing (Verizon's $350M loss on Yahoo's #breach, Nortel's $4.5bn #patent fire sale, and now #TikTok) shouldn't be our primary means for understanding value, nor should measuring the cost to protect intangible assets

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

..but @Twitter's image processing #algorithms are #racist too:

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 let's unpack this.

We hear a lot about "#dashboards"; we were even promised sight of one, back in March* - though we've not seen it yet.

But what are they, in reality?

*… ImageImage
Well, for starters, we know quite a bit about @NHSEngland's 'dashboard(s)': back in March, @MattHancock gave it powers to DEMAND confidential patient information from care providers*, for (broadly defined) "#COVID19 purposes"...

Under the #COPInotices:…
...and we know @NHSEngland's hoovering up *at least* 70 different datasets into its #DataStore (the list at is no longer comprehensive due to the controversial contents of some of the datasets).

As its "#PrivacyNotice" points out,… Image
