Artificial Intelligence-Based Algorithm Predicts Heart Failure (Erin McNemar, MPA, Health IT Analytics)

Mount Sinai researchers created an artificial intelligence-based computer algorithm that can detect subtle changes in electrocardiograms to predict whether a patient is experiencing heart failure.

“We showed that deep-learning algorithms can recognize blood pumping problems on both sides of the heart from ECG waveform data,” Assistant Professor of Genetics and Genomic Sciences Benjamin S. Glicksberg, PhD, said in a press release.

Ethics as Applied Intelligence (Anastasia Likhacheva, Valdai Discussion Club)

In any event, the competition between companies and mega-corporations, the rivalry among states, around intelligence and technology have different facets. At the national level, the club of the smartest brains is still very small, but more democratic, than the military technology club. If a country rushes to be more significant, there is no alternative than to develop technologies and patents, with an emphasis on a certain specialisation, or all at once – if it claims to be a superpower. This resembles  technological napalm.

Winners and losers in the fulfilment of national artificial intelligence aspirations (Samar Fatima, Gregory S. Dawson, Kevin C. Desouza, and James S. Denford, Brookings)

The quest for national AI success has electrified the world—at last count, 44 countries have entered the race by creating their own national AI strategic plan. While the inclusion of countries like China, India, and the U.S. are expected, unexpected countries, including Uganda, Armenia, and Latvia, have also drafted national plans in hopes of realizing the promise. Our earlier posts, entitled “How different countries view artificial intelligence” and “Analyzing artificial intelligence plans in 34 countries” detailed how countries are approaching national AI plans, as well as how to interpret those plans. In this piece, we go a step further by examining indicators of future AI needs.

To stop algorithmic bias, we first have to define it (Emily Bembeneck, Rebecca Nissan, and Ziad Obermeyer, Brookings)

In sectors as diverse as health care, criminal justice, and finance, algorithms are increasingly used to help make complex decisions that are otherwise troubled by human biases. Imagine criminal justice decisions made without race as a factor or hiring decisions made without gender preference. The upside of AI is clear: human decisionmakers are far from perfect, and algorithms hold great promise for improving the quality of decisions. But disturbing examples of algorithmic bias have come to light. Our own work has shown, for example, that a widely-used algorithm recommended less health care to Black patients despite greater health needs. In this case, a deeply biased algorithm reached massive scale without anyone catching it—not the makers of the algorithm, not the purchasers, not those affected, and not regulators.

Concentration of artificial intelligence and other frontier IT skills (Wang Jin, Georgios Petropoulos and Sebastian Steffen, Bruegel)

Online job postings indicate that demand from top tech firms for frontier IT skills is about double their demand for other IT skills. This could indicate increasing concentration of skills in a few firms, with other firms left behind.

Inghiottiti dal metaverso: i rischi di un mondo visto con gli occhiali “intelligenti” (Lorenza Saettone, Agenda Digitale)

Attraverso gli smart glasses molti stanno pensando di leggere la meta a cui stiamo tendendo: il metaverso: qualcosa in più di un mondo virtuale, una realtà estesa, un cyberspazio comune in cui balzare da un’attività all’altra muniti solo di avatar. Quali sono i rischi?

Regulating Cyberspace — Perspectives from the private sector in Asia (Nisha Holla, Vikas Kathuria, ORF)

Today, most global citizens have digital avatars and are active in cyberspace. Especially in the wake of the pandemic, almost all aspects of interaction and subscription of services have moved online. Digital technologies have fast-tracked inclusion in multiple geographies in the last decade, including most Asian nations. Amongst other benefits, technology inclusion has proven to be most helpful in humanity’s efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
