Using artificial intelligence in breast cancer screening

“Together with Northwestern Medicine, Google Health is working on a new clinical research study to explore whether artificial intelligence (AI) models can help reduce the time to diagnosis, narrowing the assessment gap and improving the patient experience.

Women who choose to take part in the study may have their mammograms reviewed by an investigational AI model that flags scans for immediate review by a radiologist if they show a higher likelihood of breast cancer.”

AI Needs Women, Women Need AI: Gender Equality And Women’s Leadership In The AI Sector

“According to a 2019 study by the World Economic Forum, only 22% of AI professionals globally are women. Why should we be worried? A better representation of women and diverse mindsets in the development and deployment of AI would reduce the gender stereotypes and the negative consequences they lead to. If that is not the case, evidence suggests that by 2022, 85% of AI projects will deliver erroneous outcomes due to bias.”

Facebook Strengthens AI To Improve Detection Effect Of Harassment And Hate Speech

“Facebook updated its Community Standards Implementation Report. The latter showed the effectiveness of Facebook’s battle against harassment and hate speech in the fourth quarter of 2020.

The penetration rate of hate speech dropped from 0.10-0.11% to 0.07-0.08%. This means that, for every 10,000 content views, there will be only 7 to 8 hate speeches. Violent content has dropped from 0.07% to 0.05%, and adult nudity has dropped from 0.05-0.06% to 0.03-0.04%.”
