Researchers say AI prescribes better treatment than doctors | Subjective Well Being | Scoop.it

A pair of Indiana University researchers has found that a pair of predictive modeling techniques can make significantly better decisions about patients’ treatments than can doctors acting alone. How much better? They claim a better than 50 percent reduction in costs and more than 40 percent better patient outcomes.

As we published back in 2011, auto and own medicine is gaining power as a trend. But still, we believe this will not substitute doctors, but complement them, and maybe substitute a diminute part of their activity. This is for the next 3 years.

There are a couple obvious advantages, most importantly the nature of diagnosis lends itself to high success at prediction by computing methods, secondly the cost of diagnosis be tied to a Moore's Law trajectory in many cases. The other advantage is the opportunity for Doctors to move more quickly into what they do best, fix people. And a good part of that is moving to robotics in the operating rooms for safer, more successful procedures. Doctors will always be here doing something to cure us, but like every other work force they are and will be changed by technology, and ibises on measured outcomes, usually for the better.

A ride through Empathy Gap with a faithful manservant

A ride through Empathy Gap with a faithful manservant | Subjective Well Being | Scoop.it
a psychologist named Daniel Goleman reported that, “A growing body of recent research shows that people with the most social power pay scant attention to those with little such power.” He went on to suggest, “This has profound implications for societal behavior and government policy. Tuning in to the needs and feelings of another person is a prerequisite to empathy, which in turn can lead to understanding, concern and, if the circumstances are right, compassionate action. Kevin Horrigan
Via Edwin Rutsch
Joe Stafura's insight:
When one lacks empathy it is like being color blind, leaving a persons understanding of situations to be mapped to a very narrow set of possibilities, e.g. He doesn't have money because he is lazy, if he would have paid attention in school he would have a better job, etc. Seemingly true statements in the tight context of an upper middle class upbringing but devoid of consideration of troubled childhood and the impact of untreated mental conditions that could have made that much harder than one would expect from their own limited experiences.

What’s your approach to innovation?

What’s your approach to innovation? | Subjective Well Being | Scoop.it
In my research and consulting work with leaders in Australia and Asia over the past 15 years, I have gained a fundamental insight into how they approach innovation.
Joe Stafura's insight:

The problem with all four of these approaches is that they are "directed" efforts, amd recent day shows that directed efforts don't work. It is similar to a paint by numbers painting compared to a masterpiece, the lacking originality screams off the canvas, just like the tepid efforts from Directed Innovation.

 

innovation is a business function, in fact according to Joseph Schumpeter's theory of Creative Destruction, it is the critical dimension of economic change.


What studies show is that innovation is an "Emergent" property, spawned from fertile cultures in enabling workplaces, the sooner companies stop Directing and start Enabling the more innovations will be produced.

The pharma business is just one of the many areas where the new understanding of the brain changes the options; education, economics and policy development and business management are all areas that will be disrupted over the next decade.

For the rapidly advancing class of chips that have been developed to communicate with the brain, the ability to dynamically reconfigure the interface nodes has emerged as one of the most desirable features.

This article is accurate from what we have seen at The Affective Computing Compamy, for companies to benefit they need to combine all health aspects, especially levels of engagement as they apply to the employee and their attitude towards the company.

 

Providling a set of tools that allow a worksodas self discover the habits they need to eliminate and those that need reinforced holds great promise to both the company and the individual.

 

Cash incentives and days off work as an attractor but the shift to self motivated actions is the only sustainable and affordable path.

Aristotle first posited that the whole could be more than the sum of its parts. Ever since, philosophers, physicists, chemists, and biologists have periodically rediscovered the idea. But it was only in the computer age—with the ability to iterate simple rule sets millions of times over—that this hazy concept came into sharp focus.
