Journalist's gobsmacked reactions during Trump interview instantly becomes meme


Fresh from a chat with Fox News host Chris Wallace that didn't exactly paint him in a great light, the president decided to sit down opposite Axios journalist Jonathan Swan on Monday -- and, lo and behold, things were even worse this time around. Not only did Trump double down on his well-wishes for accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, he also attempted to explain away the horrendous U.S. coronavirus death toll with some more charts that not even he appeared to fully understand. Sitting opposite him, meanwhile, was Axios journalist Jonathan Swan, whose reactions are nothing short of gobsmacked throughout the interview. If a picture says a thousand words, Swan's facial expressions during the interview pretty much told a full-length novel.

The role played by Artificial Intelligence in social sector -


Artificial intelligence is already impacting our lives. And the use of AI for social functioning is on an all-time high. Be it getting riding directions through our smartphone or getting daily reminders by using our health system to extend our workouts; all these are manifestations of how artificial talent is altering the way we function. What is often much less understood is the vast function synthetic brain can play in the social sector. The Artificial Intelligence for social good can probably assist in solving some of the country's most pressing problems. As a count number of facts, it can contribute in some way or every other to tackling and addressing all of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals, supporting large sections of the populace in both growing and developed countries. AI is already helping in several real-life situations, from assisting blind humans in navigating and diagnosing cancer to identify sexual harassment victims and helping with catastrophe relief. Let us take a look briefly at integral social domains where AI can be carried out effectively.

Artificial intelligence-enhanced ECGs may speed heart failure diagnosis and treatment


When people seek emergency care for shortness of breath, a routine electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI) is better than standard blood tests at determining if the cause is heart failure, according to new research published today in Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology, an American Heart Association journal. "Determining why someone has shortness of breath is challenging for emergency department physicians, and this AI-enabled ECG provides a rapid and effective method to screen these patients for left ventricular systolic dysfunction," said Demilade Adedinsewo, M.D., M.P.H., lead author of the study and chief fellow in the division of cardiovascular medicine at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. The left ventricle supplies most of the heart's pumping power, so it is larger than the other chambers and essential for normal function. In left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD), the left ventricle is weakened and must work harder to maintain adequate blood flow to the body. In a typical year, about 1.2 million people go to emergency departments because they are short of breath.

Oxford University Introduces New Commission to Address AI Governance in Public Policy


A new commission has been formed by Oxford University to advise world leaders on effective ways to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning in public administration and governance. The Oxford Commission on AI and Good Governance (OxCAIGG) will bring together academics, technology experts and policymakers to analyse the AI implementation and procurement challenges faced by governments around the world. Led by the Oxford Internet Institute, the Commission will make recommendations on how AI–related tools can be adapted and adopted by policymakers for good governance now and in the near future. The new Commission's inaugural thinkpiece, "Four Principles for Integrating AI & Good Governance" by Lisa-Maria Neudert and Philip Howard examines the procurement and use of AI by government and public agencies. The report outlines four significant challenges relating to AI development and application that need to be overcome for AI to be put to work for good governance and leverage it as a'force for good' in government responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pixel 4a review: the best phone Google has made in years

The Guardian

The Pixel 4a is a return to form for Google's smartphone efforts: a lower-cost, mid-range phone that is high quality, long-lasting and fairly small, with a great camera. The £349 Pixel 4a is very much an attempt to boil down a smartphone to only the essentials and then make them all work really well. It slots under the higher-priced £669-and-up Pixel 4 series, replacing last year's Pixel 3a and 3a XL with only one size of phone, taking the design of the 3a and expanding the screen to fill the front of the device. A 5G version is coming later in the year but for now the Pixel 4a is 4G only. The body is high-quality, soft-touch polycarbonate and feels surprisingly nice.

Robotic surgical assistant making surgery at UMMC more precise – IAM Network


BATAVIA -- The first robotically assisted knee replacement surgery at Rochester Regional Health United Memorial Medical Center (UMMC) has been performed and there are more coming up soon.The first procedure was done Friday by Dr. Matthew Landfried, chief of orthopedic surgery for UMMC and a Genesee Orthopaedics surgeon. It was one of two such procedures he did that day with the help of a Robotic Surgical Assistant (ROSA) Knee System."The That hopefully lets people know this hospital (UMMC) is on par with the city hospitals. Our capability in orthopedics are equal to the city hospitals. The fact that the system chose me to start it is sending a message that hospitals out here are capable of the same types of procedures … as the city hospitals. People don't have to travel to get that kind of quality. I was honored to be picked to do the first one in the (RRH) system."ROSA

Council Post: 14 'Smart City' Tech Features That Will Soon Change Urban Centers


As the Internet of Things continues to permeate more areas of modern life, we've begun to see the rise of the "smart city." These urban areas leverage IoT technology like sensors and beacons to collect data and better manage a city's resources, services and operations. This ultimately makes a city safer and can improve the quality of life for residents. Because this smart city technology is virtually invisible to those who aren't operating it, many outside of the tech industry may not realize the full impact IoT can have on urban life. Below, 14 experts from Forbes Technology Council explain some of the current and upcoming tech innovations that are changing the way cities function.

Can Artificial Intelligence detect the cause of diseases?


The technological advancements in the global Healthcare industry are hurtling at light speed. As the medical industry is undergoing immense changes, Healthcare OEMs look forward to the growing technological trends to improve all aspects of patient care. Today, Artificial Intelligence (AI) play significant roles in the evolution of the healthcare industry, so much that algorithms can now predict and detect the root cause of a certain disease, making an accurate and timely diagnosis. For example, AI can detect the underlying cause of cancer, which can eventually help pharmaceutical scientists develop new drugs accordingly. In one recent study, published by Healthcare IT News, "Google and medical partners including Northwestern University have unveiled a new AI-based tool that can create a better model of a patient's lung from the CT scan images. This 3-D image gives better predictions about the malignancy of tumors and incorporates learning from previous scans, enabling the AI to help clinicians in spotting lung cancer in earlier stages when it is vastly more treatable".
