*ATTENTION PLEASE*#AI #digitalhealth #tweeps Today @IndraJoshi10 and I at @NHSX are launching our new "Artificial Intelligence: How to get it right report" with help from A LOT of people across the digital health ecosystem nhsx.nhs.uk/key-informatio… 1/ 14
The report goes into detail on our plans for the NHS AI lab but, more importantly, the research that sits beneath that - particularly the work on governance: ethics and regulation with invaluable input from @reformthinktank @oxfordethicslab @turinginst @FutureAdvocacy 2/14
We (@IndraJoshi10 & me) hope that the report makes it clear WHY we think #AI is important for health and care & HOW we can make sure it is utilised in the 'right' way - not just for the sake of it - within safe & ethical boundaries 3/14

Wow. I found a donor trying to give >£1m to delivery work in a certain sector. I also found*, and told them, that there's very little evidence about 'what works' in that sector. So they can't reliably fund delivery b/c nobody knows what to deliver. They'd better fund production…
2/ of research about what to deliver (& how). I connected them to some researchers. Now, 3 months later, they're starting a partnership to produce effective #research in that sector.

That entire intervention only took me about 2 hours. Rescued >£1m from almost certain fail.
3/ See: get your philanthro-advice from me: I know my game ;-)

*by using a @3ieNews evidence & gap map. (Which are a public good and hence hard to fund, but useful & consequential.)

Stark prospect. Oxygen deprivation. Can't be rest assured, w/ inherent risks of lack of Co2. Amassing looters, expunging such a large carbon footprint. Selling land for quick profits. #AmazonFire
2/n In sync with axes at the grind -- leading to inevitable deforestation. Coming dawn of no less, extinction of the planetary ecosystem. This disastrous outcome with many factors have been congregating for many years, now. #ClimateStrike
3/n And, where I helm. Nor in any respect "us" Aussies or elsewhere immune. The die has already been cast, and triggers of misuse — via politician's have ignited by fusion of friction. The vein has already been mined. Global problem besetting the world remains unresolved. #Change

Alors, je vous présente… our findings about (1) what academic #research already exists about UK charities & #philanthropy and (2) the topics on which UK charities & donors say that they would like more academic #research.

2/ Combined, the results are a ‘gap analysis’ which can inform future research. Both studies were funded by @Charity_Futures, re its work establishing an Institute of Charity at Oxford University. But the findings can inform the agenda of any researchers in this terrain.

I'm a few years behind the curve; y'all still do follow trains?

Well, I'm starting one. Let's do one about #equitydesign.

@albanvillamil asked if I knew people, places, and tools for equity and design, and I wanted everyone to know everyone.

Spread the word! (1/million)
That being said, like equity work, this isn't (and arguably can't be) the definitive

Equity is a verb, like @_ChristineOrtiz says, so my hope is this is only the beginning.
I tried to get everyone's resources and descriptions correctly, but if there's anything wrong, feel free to correct me! (Crit's in our blood, right?)

Feel free to add, amend, include, and let's get to know each other. Cool? Cool.

Glad to be part of this convo! Need to define terms to begin:
Here are a few helpful ways I think of #racism:
Racism = Prejudice + Power to impact the lives and futures of the “other”. #LiberatingEvangelicalism 1/
Racism = the implementation of structural, systemic, legal and/or political hierarchy of human belonging based on arbitrary physical features. #LiberatingEvangelicalism 2/
Racism = the #racialization of society’s systems and structures by #intent OR by #impact. 3/#LiberatingEvangelicalism

Soaking up some very sobering info this afternoon at 'The Future of UK #Borders after #Brexit' organised by the indefatigable @hayward_katy in assoc w/ @UKandEU, @FortinusGlobal, @ShankerASingham. Invaluable research & policy engagement - nice work @QUBEngagement #Impact
Hayward poses key qs for us in NI in these precarious times - neither of which glean clear answer: (1) what opportunities does #Brexit offer NI? (2) what cost is British Govt prepared to incur for #Brexit - when polls indicate maj GB indifference to hard border,collapse of peace?
Personal opinion incoming:
I’ve previously said I think #Brexit is a moral, ethical, economic, social, & cultural crisis. I generally refrain from nailing my political colours to the post publicly, but the seriousness of the negative impacts of this ‘project’ are exceptional...
