Don't Spend Your Emotional Energy on Sully H.W. Bush

Slate

In January 2009, a pilot named Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger steered his struggling aircraft to a safe landing in the Hudson River and became a national hero. Almost 10 years later, a dog named for the pilot has become a beloved "hero" in his own right, and he did it for something much simpler: lying down. On Sunday night, George H.W. Bush spokesman Jim McGrath posted a photograph to Twitter depicting a golden Labrador named Sully resting in front of the former president's casket. Within hours, Sully the dog had become a bona fide celebrity. McGrath's sentiment has been retweeted 61,000 times and counting, and "Sully" was trending on Twitter at various times on Monday.

AI could predict cognitive decline leading to Alzheimer's disease in the next five years: Algorithms may help doctors stream people onto prevention path sooner

#artificialintelligence

Dr. Mallar Chakravarty, a computational neuroscientist at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute, and his colleagues from the University of Toronto and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, designed an algorithm that learns signatures from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), genetics, and clinical data. This specific algorithm can help predict whether an individual's cognitive faculties are likely to deteriorate towards Alzheimer's in the next five years. "At the moment, there are limited ways to treat Alzheimer's and the best evidence we have is for prevention. Our AI methodology could have significant implications as a'doctor's assistant' that would help stream people onto the right pathway for treatment. For example, one could even initiate lifestyle changes that may delay the beginning stages of Alzheimer's or even prevent it altogether," says Chakravarty, an Assistant Professor in McGill University's Department of Psychiatry.
