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.

When people who seek control
and who monetize fear

are faced with evidence their narrative of control is false

rather than embrace reality
(or develop courage)
they double down

At times of high stress you see bizarre overpolicing & bullying increase over petty non-issues.
There is a gender difference in bullying tactics.
Men: physical
Women: social (exclusion)

Later looks/sounds like
“Don’t talk to her”
“No one likes you”

(Yes, really adults resort to grade school tactics)

Faculty/teachers need to stay aware:…
Whereas adults are taught “just shake it off” or “ignore it”, students or children are especially vulnerable to faculty or teacher over-policing.

This over-policing starts not just in preschool but in the cradle.

“The police” in schools: teachers.…

Doctors, especially female doctors, are rushing to defend Dr. Birx

“male-centered” world is problem = latest knee jerk “feminist” defense

Men cause female doctors to not speak on scientific facts in public?

Why isn’t female doctors saving lives of WOC part of “feminism”?
The same doctors who will jump on the “racism!” bandwagon vs @JAMA_current if vs a *man*

will rush to cover up for a woman/peer who *operationalizes* structural racism

The face of structural & medical racism is female

And women will defend women rather than be held accountable
@DrJRMarcelin published this in @JAMA_current. Women of color, specifically black women, need to be leading the conversation on #COVID19 in America because when #publichealth systems fail on top of medical racism, you get exactly the results we got.…

« Comment savoir à tous les coups qu’une idée ne marchera PAS » - Episode 2

Exemple de « Lack of Control » appliqué à la vaccination en Belgique (ok, ca marche MAL plutôt que PAS).

#Requirements #Agile #Systems
L’épisode précédent a introduit la notion de « Lack of Monitoring »

Un système centralisé qui n’est pas omniscient a tendance à exposer plein de “bugs” parce qu’il prend ses décisions sur une information obsolète et/ou incomplète, qui reflète donc mal le monde réel.
Dans cet épisode, on explique le miroir « Lack of Control ».

Un système qui ne sait pas contrôler directement certaines choses, va chercher à en contrôler d’autres et “espérer” une cascade positive. Sauf qu’en pratique ça ne marche souvent pas.

C’est par là 👇

« Comment savoir à tous les coups qu’une idée ne marchera PAS »

Exemple de « Lack of Monitorability » appliqué à la vaccination en Belgique (ok, ca marche MAL plutôt que PAS).

Ou encore: pourquoi décentraliser, c’est souvent mieux?

#Requirements #Agile #Systems
Dans le thread précédent, j’indiquais l’importance d’étudier ce qui va foirer, plutôt que de foncer sur LA bonne solution.

C’est l’objectif général de l’analyse de risque, ou d’obstacles. Méthodes fort codifiées, qui peuvent être aussi “légères”.
Attention: il est facile de découvrir *après coup* les raisons pour lesquelles un système foire. Y a un côté “charognard” au requirements engineering (RE) académique, qui reste utile pour enseigner.

Cela dit, le RE invite à réfléchir *avant*, pour éviter les ennuis *après*

« Ok, si j’ai N idées de système comment savoir quelle est LA meilleure »

Spoiler: impasse. Vous posez la mauvaise question.

Mais quand même, intéressons-nous y👇

#Requirements #Agile #Systems
On a vu que pour un problème correctement caractérisé *dans le monde réel* (étape très importante, pour ne pas être trop tôt biaisé par une solution) on trouve assez vite plein de solutions candidates possibles (au stade d’idées plutôt floues).
Là dessus on peut être tenté.e de trouver LA meilleure solution.

C’est légitime, en tout cas si l’on pense qu’on va mettre UNE solution en place...

Sauf que c’est faux. Le sentiment suivant résume à mon sens le mieux la situation à ce stade:

Tant qu’à perdre son temps sur Twitter, autant joindre l’utile au moins utile:

Je ferai à l’avenir en réponse à ce tweet des threads random sur l’informatique au sein des systèmes et projets complexes.

Comment mieux penser ces systèmes/projets? #Requirements #Agile #Systems
« C’est la faute à l’informatique ». Distinguons le vrai du faux.

(L’actualité nous offre un bel exemple, que j’utilise. Je ne connais rien du système de vaccination et de sa conception - assez opaque. Critique à prendre avec des pincettes: c’est un *exemple*)
J’appelle « système complexe » un système dans lequel un grand nombre d’acteurs doivent collaborer pour atteindre un objectif (par exemple « avoir vacciné tout le monde »).

L’informatique y joue souvent un rôle majeur, mais il s’agit d’un acteur comme les autres.

This is the biggest story in World #Sport at the moment

The way the narrative is starting to play out is so reminiscent of the #Trump election - It's a scary template!

Regulated media V's Unregulated Media competing to tell the story 🤯#Boxing #Tribal…
For any #boxing / #sport fan with no previous knowledge of these characters, we should be sceptical of simplistic caricatures that are served up by Online Fans OR stenographers masquerading as journalists!

There's a lot of sh*t out there! 🤳💻

Research & Critical thinking! 🤔
If we accept the @panorama programme #boxingandthemob then we have a situation whereby #OrganisedCrime has not only infiltrated BUT is dominating a Global/Professional Sport!

If that's the case, what's to stop these forces taking over #Football OR other major Sport next?

Note: thinking of #Assange ... thinking of the #World ... thinking of #newsmedia ... thinking of encroached #Intel and possibly #deepstate entities ... thinking of #FiveEyes and all this sort of #Jazz

It's not a happy scene is it...!

Point: I can't wrap my mind around it

I'm not the best brain here.
Yes it's true

I'm sick of #ForeverWar as it's termed

I'm sick of #Starvation and #illness esp in #yemen

I'm sick of #palastinian oppression by #Israel and the seeming #aparteid there

I'm sick of #US interference in #SouthAmerica, at least

And I've no Idea what the hell I can do.

As for the #UK , well like for example in the #Saudi and #UAE coalition they provide all that #Support for helping the #WarEffort and say the #Arms sold are within strict guidelines.

It's a heap...!!!

From a #Systems POV Trump either did not understand the problem, or did, and chose to solve for a different problem. He solved for how to protect himself & his broken ego/self rather than for the health & well being of the nation.
As such all the resources were diverted to
addressing that hopeless problem instead of recognizing the moment and taking up the challenge of leadership.

Trump is worse than a coward...He is, and has proven repeatedly, to be an active cancerous assault on the health & well being of the country. In no case more adroitly
exampled than in how he dealt with the COVID crisis.
From the fundamental denial of its existence - publically. We learned, much later, from Woodward, that he was well aware of the actual & potential danger... and did nothing...But lie about it. And in that gap of lies &

When good science is suppressed by the medical-political complex, people die
#Politicians and #governments are suppressing #science. They do so in the public interest, they say, to accelerate availability of diagnostics and treatments.
They do so to support innovation, to bring products to market at unprecedented speed. Both of these reasons are partly plausible; the greatest deceptions are founded in a grain of truth. But the underlying behaviour is troubling.
#Science is being suppressed for political and financial gain. Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale, and it is harmful to public health.
1 Politicians and industry are responsible for this opportunistic embezzlement. So too are scientists and health experts.

The assertion & question of unity, unifying the country, wondering what the hell the problem is, and why is all this happening is taking center stage. Dramatically.
As is the corollary question being tossed about, "How to heal the Nation?".

There is a #systems principle
that is a powerful insight into these, & related, questions.

"You cannot solve a problem at the same level it was created."

If the problem we were solving for were some detail, 'where to place a road; what $ to allocate to this or that project' sort of thing, then the way to
think about the problem, the impasse, is to appeal first to the functions of prior planning, history - meaning what did we do the last time, maybe pragmatics...Eventually, if the organization (whether business, community, or governance) may make a decision and that becomes the

As a physician, can say this about doctor culture in the U.S.: we are a socially stunted puerile bunch easily manipulated by sales & marketing ppl or by metrics of competition, obsessed with status, prestige, ego..

...not my doctor friends...but we hang out at the margins.
The high school level drama that plays out in hospitals, then the replica, amplified, on #MedTwitter is 😱 No wonder our profession kills so many patients when we are so busy policing on pettiness & ignoring standards of quality, safety, population health…
There are many reasons why I am hanging up the stethoscope, one of which is that I cannot in good faith go into any clinical setting and feel confident about “first do no harm” - The system is too misaligned, not driving quality, safe results

Then, the human dynamics are

On "called in" versus "called out": in fact, a true ally can tolerate being "called out" to model #learning #mindset/#growthmindset for others. Those who need everything to be done hidden/in private reveal they care more about image, optics, their own reputation.
People need to let go of this concept of "shame" or "did you just call me a racist"? Everyone has more to learn. Was just discussing with a woman who pointed out elite programs in the U.S. fulfill "diversity" quotas with "Black" from Africa rather than descendants of slaves.
The underlying issue of exploitation, specifically slavery, was #economic. The experience of personal + generational trauma + loss of generational wealth + loss of identity is a deliberate #systematic #systems approach to value extraction for economics.…

There's a big difference between HAVING data at this level of #granularity, and PUBLISHING it.

Providing #age, #sex and street #address is not "#anonymised"; more like mildly #deidentified - and almost certainly still #PersonalData.

What the UK's "getting wrong" is a failure... adequately #test - and further, a failure to get (positive) test results to where they are NEEDED.

Would you prefer your #COVID19 #diagnosis to be #published, or to get to you, your #GPrecord and to the #PublicHealth teams who are the ones having to manage things locally?
Data is not magic, and to be useful it must be done right.

Greater #transparency of the #systems, their #performance, and the people who are #using our data (and for what) would inspire greater #trust than putting 300,000+ people's on the web.

Assuming things were working, ofc.
