1/ 🧵 Dental research generates data, but is data available and is machine-actionable?
That's the question we asked w/ @ASofiMahmudi @raittioe @IlzeMal & @baiba_vilne in #openaccess @JDentRes journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.11… thanks to @mikrotik_com & @bbcentre_eu #FAIR #openscience
2/ Raw data allows replication and validation of results. Additionally, if it is in a machine-accessible format, this would allow new hypotheses to be explored using the available data

3/ in order for machines to access data, it must be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. This is known as #FAIRdata Image

Want to thank @Bindestriche for the retweet. Inspired the need to vent my thoughts in this🧵

@C0PE 1. A crucial #COVID19 paper (tinyurl.com/bp8m326t) with simple #solution that does not have any #vested interest is #retracted seven months after publication in a #PeerReviewed journal @SpringerNature where there could be #conflictofinterest @RetractionWatch.
@C0PE @SpringerNature @RetractionWatch 2.Retraction was initiated by an #influential scientist who doesn't have any research on #COVID. If s/he had co-authored papers with author in other areas, will there not be #ConflictofInterest?
Can it not be verified/disclosed? Who will check if there is #fairness of intention?
@C0PE @SpringerNature @RetractionWatch 3) There was no open #public #debate allowed before retraction. Then how #transparency is maintained and how the right of the author is protected? A negative review can be written for any paper and a paper rejected in one journal can also be published in another journal.

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of ordinary people is an enemy of ordinary people – because socialism is precisely about protecting ordinary people.

Lie about that and what else will you lie about?

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of the economy is an enemy of the economy – because any fool knows the economy's real enemies are those who strip away its assets and hoard away its wealth.

1/ I'm sitting in on an @ifgevents live stream with @ICOnews's Elizabeth Denham instituteforgovernment.org.uk/events/elizabe… #IfGDenham

If there's something relevant from a public engagement perspective I'll add to this thread
2/ Some prepared remarks from ED first. The law worked best, she says, when the publics' views are put front and centre of any data use #IfGDenham
3/ Big things on her desk are #transparency, #AI #algorithms and #BigData < I wonder how many of those are big things from the public's perspectives? Suspect outcomes and impacts are much more relevant, less about data #IfGDenham

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":

The consultation ends on 19 Nov 2021, and you can respond by e-mail to DataReformConsultation@dcms.gov.uk or online here:

A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

Here’s a truth grenade:

You've been treated like garbage.
The establishment doesn't give a damn about you.
You deserve to be listened to.

You want safety and security for your children.
You want to feel part of something special.

You don't want to be talked down to.
You want to be treated as an equal.
You want a say in the things that effect your life.....

Prestigious European #grants might be #biased, study suggests nature.com/articles/d4158…

One day I will share my own research on the UK :) Very interesting patterns. Eventually, I wonder if this was true anywhere despite the *appearances* of #fairness of one or another system.
The are several reasons... let me share my *non-expert* opinion about this issue.

1) A background of overlap between panels and awardees can never be eliminated because they should be both at the top of their fields.
2) Who knows the system (and people within it) have an advantage because can be advised (with no malice) about the unwritten rules, processes, priorities and good practices.

It pains me to have to tweet the following about the University where I have spent 18 largely happy years. I am still an honorary professor there and I want it to remain an honour.
What is happening at the University of Liverpool is not normal and it threatens not just the 47 academics who are threatened with the sack. What is at stake is even bigger. I explain why below. Please RT to ask management to reconsider.

For the past three weeks, a group of Trump supporters and QAnon believers met online, swapped theories and eagerly awaited the conspiracy’s violent climax. I was listening in. This is what they sounded like.

What #AI lacks, humans can fill in.
What humans lack, who will fill in.

Dual standards of our society and human thinking. #Ethics, #fairness and other values are regulated for AI but same values for humans are not regulated.

Time to do introspection.
If humans are unable to grasp the ethics, morale and fairness values due to deep diversity of humanity, how can we ensure ethical frameworks created for #AI will be universal.
Humans have failed to uphold the values of #ethic across history and geography. Humans have used the technology to gain control and become superior. The weaponisation of #ai is inevitable. We have seen parallel cases from field of #biotech and specific case of #crispr

In God we trust,
In #machine we believe,
In #data we live,

We are the next-generation human being.

Sadly we don't trust humans, we don't believe in them and we have almost stopped living.
Religion, folklore, mythology and history agrees on one interesting statement.

Humans were created in image of God.

Aren't we repeating the same thing with #AI? Aren't we creating AI in image of ourself?
Don't believe, look around see with what it is compared.
Sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic.

Same way, sufficiently advanced #AI is indistinguishable from #god.

In the past 15 years or so I have asked several Bollywood stars in interviews: why do you endorse #fairness products? Funny thing: most are unwilling to admit that their fairness brands are fairness brands. I kid you not. It has been quite surreal. (Contd)
In interviews I've done for TV & print, over the years stars have offered me variants of "these are brightening creams, not whitening creams", "blemish removers not fairness creams" etc. Some of that came together in this article I wrote in 2011: …navetticadgoes2themovies.blogspot.com/2015/04/stars-… (Contd)
By dropping "Fair" from #FairandLovely's name, @Unilever is continuing a pretence most Bollywood ambassadors of such brands have kept up for long. The name change is either pre-emptive or a bid to board the #BlackLivesMatter bandwagon. Shame. (Contd)

Step back & ask what is money?

Biggest threat to wealthy is exposing worth is a malleable human invention

@Teri_Kanefield nails it—democracy vs hierarchy

Declaration of Independence’s equal worth clashes with our innate differences

To what extent does worth lie in our humane treatment of others?

In our abilities, activities in context of others?

In our accumulation of wealth through our exchanges?

Worth & worthiness & our tenuous clutching to our own value frames freedom & humane choices or lack of them.
What’s likely driving the fervor to restart the economy at the expense of others lives is a fear that the longer we continue relying on essential workers previously labeled “menial” & “low value” we openly expose the lie that wealth is worth.

That we afford what we value.
