Abolish the #TechToPrisonPipeline


The authors of the Harrisburg University study make explicit their desire to provide "a significant advantage for law enforcement agencies and other intelligence agencies to prevent crime" as a co-author and former NYPD police officer outlined in the original press release.[38] At a time when the legitimacy of the carceral state, and policing in particular, is being challenged on fundamental grounds in the United States, there is high demand in law enforcement for research of this nature, research which erases historical violence and manufactures fear through the so-called prediction of criminality. Publishers and funding agencies serve a crucial role in feeding this ravenous maw by providing platforms and incentives for such research. The circulation of this work by a major publisher like Springer would represent a significant step towards the legitimation and application of repeatedly debunked, socially harmful research in the real world. To reiterate our demands, the review committee must publicly rescind the offer for publication of this specific study, along with an explanation of the criteria used to evaluate it. Springer must issue a statement condemning the use of criminal justice statistics to predict criminality and acknowledging their role in incentivizing such harmful scholarship in the past. Finally, all publishers must refrain from publishing similar studies in the future.

How The Cloud Can Solve Life Science's Big Data Problem


Small startups and big companies alike are recognizing that modern biotech R&D is as much a data ... [ ] problem as a science problem. Cloud technologies offer a way to bring together massive amounts of complex data to improve the way we feed, fuel, heal, and build our world with biology. These days, biotech R&D is as much a data problem as a science problem. Here's why: in the past decade, the exploding field of synthetic biology has done an incredible job solving the scientific challenges of making biology easier to engineer. I have written about how tools like gene editing, synthesis, sequencing, and automation are changing for the better the way we feed, fuel, heal, and build our world with biology.

Accelerating data-driven discoveries


As technologies like single-cell genomic sequencing, enhanced biomedical imaging, and medical "internet of things" devices proliferate, key discoveries about human health are increasingly found within vast troves of complex life science and health data. But drawing meaningful conclusions from that data is a difficult problem that can involve piecing together different data types and manipulating huge data sets in response to varying scientific inquiries. The problem is as much about computer science as it is about other areas of science. That's where Paradigm4 comes in. The company, founded by Marilyn Matz SM '80 and Turing Award winner and MIT Professor Michael Stonebraker, helps pharmaceutical companies, research institutes, and biotech companies turn data into insights.

Data Scientists Should Do Drugs!


Now that this attention-grabbing headline has drawn you in, let me clarify. Data scientists should not partake in illegal drugs. Data scientists should participate in pharmacological research, as artificial intelligence and machine learning can add value, even when the data scientist does not have a background or training in physics, biology, chemistry, or medicine. The CAIA Association and FDP Institute had a recent conversation with Woody Sherman, the CSO of Silicon Therapeutics. While many of us can be left behind in a discussion of computational drug discovery, it seems that almost everyone today is a budding epidemiologist trying to better understand the prevention and spread of COVID-19, so let's continue.

On The Problem of Relevance in Statistical Inference Machine Learning

How many statistical inference tools we have for inference from massive data? A huge number, but only when we are ready to assume the given database is homogenous, consisting of a large cohort of "similar" cases. Why we need the homogeneity assumption? To make `learning from the experience of others' or `borrowing strength' possible. But, what if, we are dealing with a massive database of heterogeneous cases (which is a norm in almost all modern data-science applications including neuroscience, genomics, healthcare, and astronomy)? How many methods we have in this situation? Not much, if not ZERO. Why? It's not obvious how to go about gathering strength when each piece of information is fuzzy. The danger is that, if we include irrelevant cases, borrowing information might heavily damage the quality of the inference! This raises some fundamental questions for big data inference: When (not) to borrow? Whom (not) to borrow? How (not) to borrow? These questions are at the heart of the "Problem of Relevance" in statistical inference -- a puzzle that has remained too little addressed since its inception nearly half a century ago. Here we offer the first practical theory of relevance with precisely describable statistical formulation and algorithm. Through examples, we demonstrate how our new statistical perspective answers previously unanswerable questions in a realistic and feasible way.

Differential Network Learning Beyond Data Samples Machine Learning

Learning the change of statistical dependencies between random variables is an essential task for many real-life applications, mostly in the high dimensional low sample regime. In this paper, we propose a novel differential parameter estimator that, in comparison to current methods, simultaneously allows (a) the flexible integration of multiple sources of information (data samples, variable groupings, extra pairwise evidence, etc.), (b) being scalable to a large number of variables, and (c) achieving a sharp asymptotic convergence rate. Our experiments, on more than 100 simulated and two real-world datasets, validate the flexibility of our approach and highlight the benefits of integrating spatial and anatomic information for brain connectome change discovery and epigenetic network identification.

Large amount of data created by various mobile platforms, social media interactions, e-commerce transactions, and IoT provide an opportunity for businesses to effectively tailor their services by effective use of AI. Proper use of Artificial Intelligence can be a major competitive advantage for any business considering vast amount of data being generated.

Moment-Based Domain Adaptation: Learning Bounds and Algorithms Machine Learning

This thesis contributes to the mathematical foundation of domain adaptation as emerging field in machine learning. In contrast to classical statistical learning, the framework of domain adaptation takes into account deviations between probability distributions in the training and application setting. Domain adaptation applies for a wider range of applications as future samples often follow a distribution that differs from the ones of the training samples. A decisive point is the generality of the assumptions about the similarity of the distributions. Therefore, in this thesis we study domain adaptation problems under as weak similarity assumptions as can be modelled by finitely many moments.
