Computer science gives a boost to heart health - MIT News Office

Computer science gives a boost to heart health - MIT News Office | Health Science Literacy for High School | Scoop.it
A new study shows that using a computer science technique to help determine the risk of death among heart attack patients yields more accurate results, and could save lives.
Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), the University of Michigan, Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and Harvard Medical School developed the new technique. It searches for subtle indicators of risk hidden in a patient’s electrocardiograms (EKG), which measure and display electrical activity in the heart. Current methods of assessing the risk of death in patients who have suffered a heart attack generally succeed in predicting only a small percentage of subsequent fatalities.

What ed tech can learn from health care when it comes to data access | GigaOM Tech News

What ed tech can learn from health care when it comes to data access | GigaOM Tech News | Health Science Literacy for High School | Scoop.it

To hear it from entrepreneurs and technologists in education, new efforts to combine historically siloed sets of student data will pave the way for a new era of personalized and dynamic learning. But to some parents and civil liberties advocates, it’s a privacy nightmare waiting to happen.

 

According to a recent Reuters article, parents in several states are up in arms about inBloom, a $100 million project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation and others to create a massive database of student data. In fact, it said that parents in New York and Louisiana, as well as the Massachusetts chapters of the American Civil Liberties Union and Parent-Teacher Association, had written to state officials in protest, citing privacy and security fears.

 

But while privacy and security concerns are certainly warranted (information about children is obviously not to be handled lightly), supporters of the project say they believe that by shifting the conversation from risks to benefits, those fears could be assuaged — and some say the health care industry can provide a positive example.

 

On a panel Monday at the SXSWedu education technology conference in Austin, Stephen Coller, a senior program officer at the Gates Foundation closely tied to inBloom, said the electronic medical records (EMR) legislation that accompanied the stimulus package played a crucial role in elevating public discussion and action around patient access to their data, and he’d like to see something comparable happen in education.
