AI clinician trained to save humans from sepsis – and, er, let's just say you should stick to your human doctor
I wasn't talking about how much it would cost to develop or the price hardware it would run on. Just what the company who sells it would charge for it.
More power to you then and good luck. Just remember to vet the marketing and sales pitches.
The use of computer decision support systems to better guide treatments and improve outcomes is a much needed approach
The unspoken bias and assumptions that go into statements like these make me laugh. If the AI can determine an optimal course, why not write a paper on that (after clinical trials) and let everyone know. Then you don't need the AI for the improved outcome, just someone who is already an expert and keeping up to date with advancements in their field to keep doing just that.
As for the bit at the end that even a slight improvement would save a lot of lives worldwide, there's a lot of people who would not be able to afford what would undoubtably be a very expensive tool so the potential impact is vastly over stated. That is of course assuming that it ever gets to the point were it is actually useful.
Perhaps it's just a sign of the times but my first thought is that they are recovering from an attack rather than human error. Could be both of course.
Is this cuttlefish really all that cosmic? Ubuntu 18.10 arrives with extra spit, polish, 4.18 kernel
I've had problems getting 17.10 and 18.04 to work on my 2400G. Hoping thisnew release will resolve the issue.
Any chance they could ship a few of the repair teams to Puerto Rico? There's a lot of work for fibre repair and installation teams there.
Sounds like a great companion device for a Gemini 4G. Could move the main sim into it and use this to take calls without a bluetooth headset. Bit expensive though and I’d want the battery to be removable.
I think the clamshell design suits the Gemini well.
Any chance The Register could talk with Onyx about the torrent of ereaders coming our way? Would like to know the price and ETA for the Boox Nova Plus.
Does that mean getting batteries replaced while you wait at a reasonable price? I'd prefer a user replaceable battery but I'll take second best if I have to.
What's good for the goose...
You can bet of CPI was higher than RPI and the pensioners decided BT should use CPI, BT would just point to the contract and say no. They could alter the terms for new members but they've got an almighty fight on their hands if they try to do that for existing members.
The next celeb nude scandal is going to be from airport scanners and tech like this. Pretty soon it won't just be hats that are lined with tin foil.
I know images aren't suppose to be saved and operators see the screen at the queue and it's a stick outline but it stretches my credulity past breaking point to think these images are not saved. If someone manages to smuggle something past a scanner and brings down a plane, those images will be needed for the investigation and determine what the vulnerability was that let the contraband through. Now imagine that capability in the hands of paparazzi who could target you from meters away and through your clothes. Or nasty ex-partners for that matter.
There is a 4G version of the Gemini, quite nice it is too. The Agenda app is better than Google's calendar, looking forward to the data app. Fingers crossed they release an email reading client too.
Re: Every one spies
It's bread and circuses. Now that they're running out of bread, time for a bigger circus.
I always wondered about the sensibility of companies who negotiate contracts with their customers publishing gross income/net profit. It must be tempting for customers to say to freeze prices (or reduce them) and you’ll still be quids in or we can go elsewhere.
Re: Good news, bad news
They don't need a database to tell them that, only what of.
Re: States' rights!
You beat me to it on this one.
How many holes does Adobe software ship with? If they know it's this buggy, what are they doing about it prerelease?
Making data this easy to access is a violation of the requirement to protect identifying data and given the extreme ease with which anyone who had access to the app could do all of this, I struggle to describe what was happening as hacking in any sense of the term. You might be able to get a conviction under computer misuse but GDPR covers a lot of the same ground feels like the more relevant legislation. Particularly as only people who had the app and had a right to use it, were using it and ‘I use just exploring the functionality available to me yer honour. It didn’t say anywhere that I couldn’t.’
I think under a more general point, every company needs to up their securty game and going over the few people who changed the data should take a backseat to getting the parties (both business and political) to take their responsibilities seriously.
Let's not forget the necessary #tags.
If you take on overly literal reading of the law then you might have a case but I am not sure any conviction would stand up to an appeal.
BTW the data misuse act is no longer law:
GDPR would be a far better way to clobber the company responsible (and probably the Tory party too as they would be data controllers in this instance). You could go for deframation too but that could end up making the Tory party look very silly indeed.
I doubt it, as long as he had paid for the app. You could argue terms and conditions but I've never heard of a case (other than reselling licenses) going to court. The software house would cease to exist long before the case came to trial.
Actually I'm quite happy with my Gemini. Roll on Sailfish 3 on the primary boot...
I do have a n900 too but that never had what you could call an app eco-system although there were a lot of good programs in the repositories for it (including OS updates created by users after Nokia stopped developing for it) so considered it too niche to be relevant to this topic. Although aren't Tizen and Sailfish decendants of Maemo?
I bought Symbian and BB10 phones. If they were still a going concern I'd be using them now. Android is the default because I won't pay to be condescended to by apple.
Looks like I'm still going to have to save my pennies for a Librem.
Still wrapping my head around Java 8 *sigh*
Re: The handcuffs haven't yet been made ..
I'd happily do it for £150,000 plus expenses.
All those civil service bigwigs are cashing in their chips now, I wonder what they see on the horizon that has prompted them to do that.
No means no.
How much would you be willing to bet that there's a nationwide 5G network before this system is fully deployed and useable?
Re: Ha Ha!
It's getting the home office to sign on the dotted line that would be the greatest hurdle.
Re: Ha Ha!
It's more difficult legally and ethically to do these experiments in humans. Looking at animal analogues can tell us alot about them and ourselves.
Garbage collection – in SPAAACE: Net snaffles junk in first step to clean up Earth's orbiting litter
If it costs a fortune to get material into orbit, not grab it and move it higher up to be recycled? I am guessing the answer is because it could cost more than it saves but it would be a cool project.
Re: neurodiverse ?
Nice to know I'm making you miserable then.
So his pitch is basically do this so I can make lots of money?
There's a difference between criticising and attack. Trump doesn't criticise the press, he attacks it. The last thing he wants is for someone people who trust and pay attention to, to point out he has no clothes and lives in a swamp. Classic disinformation campaign (not solely used by the Russians but they do it so well). Flood information channels with as many false narratives as you can, degrade noise to signal ratio and thrive in the dysfunctionality of the chaos you’ve created.
I know the answer is probably the PHB but if there was no tech support, who was spending the IT budget?
Re: So, the Andorra Scenario then
GiffGaff have a scam running at the moment were your data connection is 'always available' but if you use more than a few Gb, gets throttled. There's a difference between always available and always useable.
By workhorse I mean something like a plough horse, not a racing thoroughbred.
Accaptable screen, workhorse cpu, replaceable RAM/HDD/Battery. Robust chasis. Good keyboard. No bloatware. Why is that so hard?
I'm waiting for Sailfish 3.0 before sticking it on.
I was waiting for the N950 but that never made it to the shops.
Still have my N900. Had to pull it out of retirement for a few days while I was waiting for a new phone. In some ways it is still miles ahead of every other phone I've used (with the possible exception of my Gemini). I know it serves a niche but it did it so well.
Screen coverage % of the front of the phone is why the notch was designed in. I could be useful for system notification battery level, unread text etc etc but it's an ugly design imposed for a stupid reason.
It's not either/or. You can be worried about both.
Pots, then you can shift them around. Raspberries too.
Have you considered Blackberries? I know the priv got EOL'd pretty soon but hopefully they've got the support side worked out with their suppliers now.
As long as my Q10 can keep pulling emails off their servers it won't affect me.
Re: Huawei has scared Samsung
Given that I was able to get an S9 for less than sim free price on contract, I'd say it's a good time to get a bargin.
I remember looking at Acatel some years ago for a phone. One model had a good screen and CPU. The other had the expandable memory, dual sim and removable battery. Both were the same price (can't remember exactly but about £120 if memory serves). They didn't do one model with all those features together though. Pity, they would have been on to a winner if they had.
