Unlike robots, humans learn, adapt and perceive their bodies by interacting with the world.
Discovering how the brain represents the body and generates actions is of major importance for robotics and artificial intelligence.

One of the most critical tasks for startups is to validate their business model.

Therefore, entrepreneurs try to collect information such as feedback from other actors to assess the validity of their assumptions and make decisions.

Over the recent years, Graph Neural Networks have become increasingly popular in network analytic and beyond.

With that, their architecture noticeable diverges from the classical multi-layered hierarchical organization of the traditional neural networks.
At the same time, many conventional approaches in network science efficiently utilize the hierarchical approaches to account for the hierarchical organization of the networks, and recent works emphasize their critical importance.

Stop trying to turn everything as tech solves all problem, exactly like the blockchain guys believes it solves everything.
If you want to solve the problem, here is 1 easy way tech can help. Reach out to hospital software management guys. Ensure it's linked to the billing system
When a patient checks out, it automatically releases a bed. Same with movement occurs between ICU to normal and vice versa cause rates are different and billing has to capture it.
So once billing captures it, it releases a bed, it can in real time either integrate with govt website and/or send out a tweet that it has 1 empty bed now. This is not a very high level work and honestly that is all we need. Real time information of beds.

(Thread 1/n) The Future of Health & #Medicine: Where Can Technology Take Us?

@daniel_kraft eloquently summarizes the early innings of #healthcare #technology, and its #future. #mustwatch

My favorite takeaways below:

(Thread 2/n) The Future of Health & Medicine:
Where Can Technology Take Us?

Some companies discussed: $TDOC $DRIO $GDRX $AMZN $UBER $AAPL $FIT $AMWL $GOOGL

@TeladocHealth (I think) would be wise to purchase
@DetectTest @VitalConnectInc @TytoCare @HeartFlow ImageImageImageImage
(Thread 3/n) The Future of Health & Medicine
Glucose Monitoring paving the path forward.

Diabetes care started the path forward. Wearable monitoring, is still in it's infancy. What other applications will come?

"It remains to be seen if we'll rise to this challenge. I'm optimistic, but there's so much more we need to do. We're good at developing new technologies...are we as good at the society-scale change we need?"
- SFI/@MIT Prof Jessika Trancik on @voxdotcom:…
@MIT @voxdotcom "If you're purchasing a #CleanEnergy technology, you're creating a market that then drives more #innovation, so everybody can contribute. It DOES also mean that we can't find #SilverBullets. We can't find one really smart person to solve this. We need everyone to contribute."
@MIT @voxdotcom "The way we can get larger projects to improve more quickly is #standardization. We need to understand the parts that are holding projects back, where the inefficiencies come in. I use a broad definition of #technology because these #inefficiencies crop up in different ways."

We live in an attention #economy & what #Tweetiatricians have known for decades (#Twitter started in 2006): importance of drawing attention to factual science-based information as compared to #misinformation & #disinformation, especially on #vaccines…
You have to be fast & prolific to play catch up to this. I have 77K tweets, a moderate sized band of 6K followers interested enough to tolerate my volume but use of hashtags allows reach across Twittersphere. Trending hashtags = better for riding a way for that attention economy
If is unclear if we are now so siloed that tweets are ineffective with anti-vaxx. But not all anti-vaxx are QAnon

I am very excited to announce that @MohsenAlif & I have won the Google Research Award!
Our project entitled "Is Economics From Afar Domain Generalizable?" falls under the Machine Perception category.
We are the only winners from Pakistan!… Google Research Scholar Award (2021) winners from Pakistan
It's a good day for #Pakistan and a fantastic one for us.
Both @MohsenAlif & I are at @ITUPunjab which is where we got the chance to do this multidisciplinary & cutting edge work. It's not everyday when labs in computer vision & #Economics come together to create impact.
According to Google, The Research Scholar Program supports early-career faculty who are doing impactful research in fields relevant to Google and is intended to help to develop new collaborations and encourage long term relationships.

1/12: Will the UK #integratedreview of security & #foreignpolicy really make a difference? It was billed as a radical reset after #Brexit & does contain important innovations. But there are many areas of continuity. A thread, now we’ve had time to digest..
2/12: #GlobalBritain hyperbole was inevitable. A “science superpower”, a “#softpower superpower”, “an independent country free to tread our own path”. But to be fair, beneath the froth lies serious thought to frame international & domestic priorities.
3/12: The #geopolitical analysis is sober. A tougher, more competitive world where China looms large & old certainties no longer apply. Yet the core prescription is familiar. British foreign policy with global reach, defending liberal democratic values, rule of law & trade.

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.

Thread about #Government and the #relationship with the #Military and #technology #Companies:

The Pentagon was once the most important client for American tech companies, but today relations with Silicon Valley are strained.…
Startups that want to cooperate with the military are moving away.
Today, the military equipment business is no longer in vogue. Also because of Edward Snowden's revelations, employees and entrepreneurs at tech companies and startups are critical of the security authorities.

Had a brain wave / brain fart today - Don't know which?!

Recently re-read x2 #books that seem pretty consequential to modern day news cycles 📚

- #JohnPerkins #ConfessionsOfAnEconomicHitman

- #BillBrowder #RedNotice

Both began their careers for #Boston based consulting co's
#Boston #USA is part of that #IvyLeague playground 🧐

#MIT & #Harvard are in close proximity - Like #Oxford & #Cambridge in the UK (those prestigious institutions also synonymous with producing spy's & leaders)!

Perkins worked for #ChasTMain
Browder for #BostonConsultingGroup
If you look at geo-political history from 1980's - today... These two fella's have really played their part!!

Both books are great by the way... well worth a read!

- #JohnPerkins = #SouthAmerica & #CentralAmerica
- #BillBrowder = #US #Russia #UK #EU ... possibly the world!? 🌐

A whole new industry has been created.

I mean there are serious financial incentives to ensure we never really “live with” COVID.

▪️Covid testing industry market size is $85 billion. Growth predicted at 3% per year to 2027 - why?

▪️global PPE market size in 2020 was $77billion. Growth predicted at 7.8% to 2028 - why? This doesn’t bode well for lifting mask mandates any time soon.

The global spend so far on COVID vaccines is $109 billion

▪️between 9-12 billion doses will be manufactured by end of 2021.

▪️Global populations will require boosters at least once per year. Cost per dose $5 - $14.

Misplaced #petchip owner details—worrying, right?

But it might be more important to consider what your #pet #technology does with you & your pet's data by design—it might surprise you!

a thread on our research into 🐕🐈tech & #privacy implications:

We found that most pet wearables (activity/location trackers) capture far more data of owner than pet—and tend to be vague on what pet data they capture.

But... pet data indirectly reveals information about you, and is shared with health consortia!

If you think data of your closest furry friend that you share your life with doesn't reflect you in detail, consider this: lots of people use dog activity trackers for joint human & doggie fitness—so your dog's activity might reveal about your health!
