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. The raw power of the technology has improved dramatically in recent years, and it’s now used in everything from medical diagnostics to online shopping to autonomous vehicles. But deep learning tools also raise worrying questions because they solve problems in ways that humans can’t … [Read more...] about Machine learning could transform medicine. Should we let it?

The passage of the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in Parliament will mark the definitive victory of Mohammed Ali Jinnah's thinking over that of Mahatma Gandhi's, senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said on December 8, asserting that the exercise of granting citizenship on the basis of religion will reduce India to a "Hindutva version of Pakistan".The former Union minister also alleged that the BJP government wants to single out "one community" and refuses to grant its members asylum from oppression on the same conditions as other communities.In an interview to PTI, Tharoor said even if the bill is passed by both the Houses of Parliament, he is confident that no bench of the Supreme Court will allow such a "blatant violation" of the fundamental tenets of India's Constitution to go unchecked.Close "It is a shameless performance by a government which as recently as last year, refused to entertain any discussion on developing a National Asylum policy, which I had proposed in a Private … [Read more...] about Granting citizenship on basis of religion will reduce India to ‘Hindutva version of Pakistan’: Shashi Tharoor
At the moment, people charge electric vehicles one of three ways: at home, at a public charging station, or on a company network like Tesla’s cross-country Supercharger system. In the U.S., there are about 20,000 public stations currently, and about 80% of charging is done at home, according to PlugIn Insights, a research firm. advertisement advertisement In Europe, there’ll soon be another way: mobile charging. This is when drivers carry their own charging kits, enabling them to use public outlets instead of the sophisticated charging posts you normally see. Mobile charging points can be retrofitted to lamp-posts and other everyday infrastructure, allowing power to spread. Ubitricity, the Berlin-based company behind the initiative, claims it can install outlets that are 5 to 10 times cheaper than usual. Of course, a “dumb” outlet is also a slow outlet. But it says that doesn’t matter, because speed isn’t important in lots of cases. … [Read more...] about How We Could Put An EV Charging Station On Every Lamp Post
Invisible Children, the nonprofit behind the Kony 2012 film–often called the most viral video of all time–is slowly shutting down its operations. First, the U.S. office will close, leaving just a handful of remote workers behind to work on advocacy. Then, within 12 to 18 months, Invisible Children will hand off its work on the ground in East Africa to partner organizations. advertisement advertisement The shutdown isn’t just about cofounder Jason Russell’s much publicized 2012 naked meltdown in the wake of the film’s viral success, though that certainly didn’t help the nonprofit’s fundraising after the huge infusion of money that followed the video. Invisible Children–which was founded to end the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), an armed group of child soldiers in Uganda led by a mysterious, brutal leader, Joseph Kony–has spent most of the money it raised and is finding it hard to raise more, but that may not be the … [Read more...] about Invisible Children, The Group Behind Kony 2012, Is Shutting Down
