5 countries ranked the best for high-quality healthcare

Save up, Filipino citizens! ‘Coz we’re all gonna die! If not from a bullet, it’ll be the hellish heat igniting the powder in the bullet casing and killing us with a bullet! Perhaps even from the very same, single firearm they keep recovering from several crime scenes! Involving people, now dead, who have (strangely, consistently) been in government watch lists! Wow! If only it were true, this would shame the CIA and the FBI and the KGB and the Mossad and all the first-world spy agencies put together! Damn! We’re so great! NOT! -donvy

Besides, installing easier-to-clean surfaces, well-positioned sinks and high-quality air filters can further reduce infection rates, as Khullar elaborated. Cleaning technique is a determining factor to bacteria infections, too.

by Jenny Maganran Goh @ mims.com

Amid the changing technology and lifestyle demands of modern cities, healthcare services are also evolving to keep up with the needs of busier patients.

Imagine a boutique doctor who is able to pay more attention to each patient’s health issues or a virtual doctor who advises from a distance. Together, these two extremes of patient care put patients at the core of health services.

In the same light, doctors are diversifying their portfolios. Here we explore four of these innovative medical services:

AI that knows you’re sick before you do: IBM’s five-year plan to remake healthcare

by J/o Best @ zdnet.com

A chip that can diagnose a potentially fatal condition faster than the best lab in the country, a camera that can see so deeply into a pill it can tell if its molecular structure has more in common with a real or counterfeit tablet, and a system that can help identify if a patient has a mental illness just from the words they use: IBM is betting that a mix of AI and new hardware can make all three possible within the coming years.

IBM’s research labs are already working on turning these concepts into fully-fledged healthcare tools, combining the company’s existing machine learning and artificial intelligence systems with newer kit including revamped silicon and millimetre wave phased array sensors.

Tech billionaires donate $20m to fund set up to protect society from AI

LinkedIn and eBay founders Reid Hoffman and Pierre Omidyar donate $10m each to the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Fund

by Alex Hern @ theguardian.com

“There’s an urgency to ensure that AI benefits society and minimises harm,” said Hoffman. “AI decision-making can influence many aspects of our world – education, transportation, healthcare, criminal justice and the economy – yet data and code behind those decisions can be largely invisible.”

The specific research areas the fund will focus on aren’t fixed, but the possibilities include ethical design – “how do we build and design technologies that consider ethical frameworks and moral values as central features of technological innovation?” – and accountability in AI – “what kinds of controls do we need to minimise AI’s potential harm to society and maximise its benefits?”

The Knight Foundation is also contributing $5m to the fund, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and Raptor Group founder Jim Pallotta are giving $1m each. The founding academic institutions for the initiative will be the MIT Media Lab and Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society.
