In clinics around the world, a type of artificial intelligence called deep learning is starting to supplement or replace humans in common tasks such as analyzing medical images. Already, at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, “every one of the 50,000 screening mammograms we do every year is processed through our deep learning model, and that information is provided to the radiologist,” says Constance Lehman, chief of the hospital’s breast imaging division. advertisement advertisement In deep learning, a subset of a type of artificial intelligence called machine learning, computer models essentially teach themselves to make predictions from large sets of data.

I’ve got to be honest. I’ve never really liked Moo business cards, even after they’ve been foisted upon me by half a dozen companies. Moo is a Rhode Island-based company that sells custom-printed business cards online. They get the job done, but I’ve always thought Moo’s efforts were just cheap and unexceptional. Except for the little stick-of-gum sized Mini Cards, of course: those are so twee, easy-to-lose, and unwieldy that the only practical use I can think to put them to is as instruments of papercut torture applied to the Moo executive who first came up with them. advertisement So I’m pleasantly surprised by Moo’s recently announced letterpress efforts. The Moo Letterpress Cards are available in 12 different designs (most of which are surprisingly tasteful, with elegant typography and vivid ink colors) and coms printed on a thick weighted card stock (Mohawk Superfine, 32pt weight), which is then debossed on both sides to give each … [Read more...] about Moo Is Now Selling Letterpress Business Cards That Aren’t Really Letterpress

Scroll down to “Hillary Frey told T.N.R. in late November…,” since everything before that is just a kind of laborious retelling of backstory. Choire accurately arranged 40 more TNR takes for you, but especially don’t miss his #2 pick, James Kirchick‘s deranged “The Rise and Fall of Chris Hughes and Sean Eldridge, America’s Worst Gay Power Couple“, which should have been subtitled “When Gay Hitler Married Gay Satan.” advertisement advertisement Speaking of Takes, and thanks to Jessie doxxing the Tabs Take Tree yesterday, let’s check in and see what the Take Tree has for us today. “People who care about things are dumb,” said the tree.(art by … [Read more...] about Today in Tabs: The Take Tree
Do you close your laptop, turn off your phone, and shut your office door at the end of the workday? You may be missing out on the most important activity that can make you better at your job. advertisement advertisement According to a recent working paper from Harvard Business School, setting aside 15 minutes to reflect at the end of the workday can boost your performance and impact your career success. “When people have the opportunity to reflect, they experience a boost in self-efficacy,” says Harvard Business School professor Francesca Gino, who coauthored the paper. “That is, they feel more confident that they can achieve things. As a result, they put more effort into what they’re doing and what they learn.” The findings come from a series of field and laboratory experiments. In one study at Wipro, a business-process outsourcing company based in Bangalore, India, three groups of employees were put through training for a particular customer … [Read more...] about Why You Should Keep A Journal At Work
