Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, September 1, 7:19 PM

Another economist who has looked at the potential of machine learning is Hal Varian, a highly successful former professor who now serves as the chief economist at Google. In a 2013 paper, Varian released a paper discussing how new machine learning techniques developed by data scientists can help economists improve their understanding of reality. For example, he discusses how machine learning can help choose between different models (something economists often ignore), cope with uncertainty about which model is correct and avoid overfitting (overly complex explanations that can’t predict anything). In a set of slides released in early 2014, Varian tied machine learning techniques to the recent rise of quasi-experimental methods in economics. This represents a fusion between traditional econometrics and new data science techniques.

Climate change poses "medical emergency," Lancet Commission report says | "green business" | Scoop.it

Climate change could undermine the last 50 years of gains in global health, according to a new report from The Lancet Commission on Health and Climate Change. The authors of the paper, published Monday evening, say that the potential risk to human health posed by climate change has been underestimated. But they also say tackling it presents one of the greatest global health opportunities of this century.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, June 23, 8:48 PM

"Climate change is a medical emergency," Commission Co-Chair Prof. Hugh Montgomery, director of the University College London Institute for Human Health and Performance, said in a statement. "It thus demands an emergency response, using the technologies available right now."

The report looked at the direct and indirect health impact of climate change and the necessary policy responses to protect and promote global health.

 

8 PHOTOS8 health risks that could get worse with climate change

Direct effects of changing climate patterns include heat waves and extreme weather events, such as storms, floods, forest fires, and droughts.
