AI Ethics: First Do No Harm

AI Ethics: First Do No Harm. AI scientists are mirroring human flaws in the AI universe — after all, robots reflect their creator. We know from research in behavioral economics that humans have innate biases.

Sensitivity, Specificity and Meaningful Classifiers

The sometimes confusing concepts involved in interpreting coronavirus testing. How do we evaluate how well a machine learning classifier or test model performs? How do we know if a medical test is reliable enough to use in a clinical setting?

How We Get Side Effects for Drug Commercials

Perhaps one of the strangest differences between television in the United States of America, versus other countries, is the abundance of commercials advertising prescription drugs.

A New Kind of Gene Editing Could Fix What CRISPR Can’t

Ever since CRISPR was first used to edit human cells in a dish in 2013, scientists have been hopeful about its potential to treat — and hopefully, eliminate — a wide spectrum of genetic diseases.

A Genetic Cure for Sickle Cell Disease Moves Closer to Reality

Millions of people around the world, including around 100,000 in the United States, suffer from sickle cell disease, a brutally painful inherited blood disorder. Most of them are of African descent.

Tagging Genes and Proteins

Text mining in the clinical domain has become increasingly important with the number of biomedical documents currently out there with valuable information waiting to be deciphered and optimized by NLP techniques. With the accelerated progress in NLP, pre-trained language models now carry millions (or even billions) of parameters and can leverage massive amounts of textual knowledge

Hooking Up Human Lungs to Pigs Could Save Them for Transplant

Donated lungs have a short shelf life. After they’re removed from a donor, it’s a race against the clock to get them to a lucky recipient. The delicate, spongy organs are viable for only six to eight hours at most — if they’re suitable for transplant at all.

Pitcher Plants Inspire Kidney Stone Diagnostic

Urine contains an abundance of dissolved salts and minerals such as calcium and uric acid. These can form crystals, which can grow in size, creating a very painful problem.
