Health Checks for Machine Learning - A Guide to Model Retraining and Evaluation


In 2013, IBM and University of Texas Anderson Cancer Center developed an AI based Oncology Expert Advisor. According to IBM Watson, it analyzes patients medical records, summarizes and extracts information from vast medical literature, research to provide an assistive solution to Oncologists, thereby helping them make better decisions. According to an article on The Verge, the product demonstrated a series of poor recommendations. Like recommending a drug to a lady suffering from bleeding that would increase the bleeding. "A parrot with an internet connection" - were the words used to describe a modern AI based chat bot built by engineers at Microsoft in March 2016. 'Tay', a conversational twitter bot was designed to have'playful' conversations with users. It was supposed to learn from the conversations. It took literally 24 hours for twitter users to corrupt it.

Best Public Datasets for Machine Learning and Data Science


Google Dataset Search: Similar to how Google Scholar works, Dataset Search lets you find datasets wherever they're hosted, whether it's a publisher's site, a digital library, or an author's web page. It's a phenomenal dataset finder, and it contains over 25 million datasets. Kaggle: A data science site that contains a variety of externally contributed to exciting datasets. You can find all kinds of niche datasets in its master list, from ramen ratings to basketball data to and even Seattle pet licenses. Although the data sets are user-contributed and thus have varying levels of cleanliness, the vast majority are clean.

Steve Jobs said Silicon Valley needs serendipity, but is it even possible in a Zoom world?


Late Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs stressed the importance of serendipity in Silicon Valley, by which he meant chance, unplanned encounters in person between tech employees. His successor, Tim Cook, Monday held a virtual conference for developers in front of the empty seats of the Steve Jobs Theater on Apple's Cupertino campus. The late Steve Jobs told his biographer, Walter Isaacson, that when he commissioned the headquarters for the animated film studio Pixar, in East Bay, Jobs made sure it was an open structure, where everything converged on an atrium. Jobs believed, as Isaacson described it, that creativity is a result of serendipity. Serendipity, meaning, discoveries that happen as a result of chance encounters, is the exact term he used, and to Jobs, it meant in-person meetings.

Dozens of Zuckerberg-funded scientists attack Facebook over its stance on Trump posts

The Independent - Tech

Dozens of scientists funded by Mark Zuckerberg have protested against his decision to leave inflammatory Donald Trump posts on the site. Mr Zuckerberg is allowing the president to use the social network to "spread both misinformation and incendiary statements", the researchers warn. Scientists, including 60 professors at leading US research institutions, wrote to the Facebook boss asking Mr Zuckerberg to "consider stricter policies on misinformation and incendiary language that harms people," especially during the current turmoil over racial injustice. The letter calls the spread of "deliberate misinformation and divisive language" contrary to the researchers' goals of using technology to prevent and eradicate disease, improve childhood education and reform the criminal justice system. Their mission "is antithetical to some of the stances that Facebook has been taking, so we're encouraging them to be more on the side of truth and on the right side of history as we've said in the letter," said Debora Marks of Harvard Medical School, one of three professors who organised it.
