How Blockchain Will Personalize Healthcare

Modern healthcare data systems are contained in disparate and disconnected information silos in doctors offices, hospitals, pharmacies, laboratories, and mobile devices. The information is so segregated that it often prevents healthcare providers from providing fast and efficient care to patients. Blockchain technology can be a solution to keeping all patient data in a single, secure […]

Four AI Standards Lessons To Consider

When it comes to designing ethical artificial intelligence (AI) systems, developers usually have the best intentions. However, problems often occur when developers fail to follow their intentions, what’s dubbed the “intention-action gap.” To avoid this, a new report from the World Economic Forum and the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University, titled […]

Will Blockchain Transform Personal Health Data Management?

With news that vaccines to control the spread of COVID-19 have been developed and approved, the next step will be the enormous undertaking of administering them to the public. For the current vaccines developed by Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech to be long-lasting and effective, individuals must take two separate doses three to four weeks apart (the […]

Machine Learning Boasts Big Promises, But Still Contains a Major Weakness

Recently, MIT researchers used machine learning—computer algorithms that automatically learn and get better over time—to predict that a number of COVID-19 vaccines currently in development may not adequately protect people of Black and Asian descent. In a study published in late November, the researchers say their machine learning models predicted the likelihood of vaccines properly […]

Will Deep Learning Accelerate the Spread of IoT?

With over 55 million people infected with COVID-19 worldwide, hospitals are under enormous strain, and remote care is needed more than ever. To meet the growing demand, the European Commission has created an (EUR) $8 million project called “IntellIoT”. It is one of several projects that will use Internet of Things (IoT) technology to boost […]

Can Ultraviolet Light Kill COVID-19?

The COVID-19 pandemic has killed over a million people across the globe. Until a vaccine is available, social distancing and regular hand washing are our best protection from the virus. However, a lesser known method can also help combat the virus: ultraviolet (UV) light. Although sunlight does contain types of UV light, these types are […]

During a Crisis, Can AI Systems Be Designed Both Quickly and Ethically?

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to save thousands of lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. However,  rapid deployment of these systems, such as the use of apps that combine AI with blockchain to track COVID-19 cases, can pose substantial risks to privacy, according to a group of researchers who recently published their concerns in the […]
