OxyContin maker Lawsuit distorts facts scapegoats company

OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma is asking a court to throw out a lawsuit filed by Massachusetts’ attorney general that accuses the company, its owners and top executives of deceiving patients and doctors about the risks of opioids.In its motion seeking dismissal, Purdue argues the lawsuit distorts facts, mischaracterizes internal company documents and makes oversimplified claims while attempting to cast the Connecticut-based firm as a scapegoat for the deadly opioid addiction crisis.A spokeswoman for Democratic Attorney General Maura Healey said Monday the state would fight Purdue’s bid to throw out the case. The state claims the company told doctors OxyContin had a low addiction risk and pushed prescribers to keep patients on the drug longer.More than 1,000 state and local governments have lawsuits pending against drugmakers, most naming multiple defendants.Bob Salsberg, The Associated Press read more

Alberta government to host second economic summit in Edmonton on Saturday

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Dean Bennett, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 1, 2013 3:22 pm MDT Alberta government to host second economic summit in Edmonton on Saturday EDMONTON – Alberta Finance Minister Doug Horner says everything from toll roads to public-private partnerships on courthouses will be on the table at Saturday’s second economic summit of 2013.Horner said the province wants a wide-ranging discussion among academics, political and business leaders on new ways to find the cash to build things in a fast-growing province.“What about a P3 (public-private partnership) for a courthouse? What about a toll road? I mean, these are some of the things that we should talk about,” Horner said in an interview Tuesday.He stressed the government isn’t actively pursuing toll roads, but said it needs to be discussed.“We just came back from travel in New York. You drive from Newark, where we landed, into downtown New York and I forget how many toll gates we actually went through,” he said.“(A toll road) is not something that we should just simply say, ‘Well, we don’t have to do it in Alberta because we’ve got lots of money.’ Maybe we should do it exactly because we have the resources.”The province has already used cost-shared, public-private partnerships to build schools, but Horner said he wants to hear other ideas.The one-day summit will be held at the University of Alberta. Horner, Premier Alison Redford and Kyle Fawcett, the government member spearheading flood recovery, will attend.The summit will also deal with how to invest the money the government is setting aside in its savings account. The savings account was launched last year as part of a new budgeting process that subdivides the budget into three categories: capital spending, day-to-day spending, and savings.Horner said the time has come to solicit ideas on where to invest.“We’re saving a bunch of money. What are saving it for?” he said.“I think (the solution) is a blend of things. There are things that we need to set aside in terms of endowments for investment into research and development.“(And) there are good opportunities for us to set aside dollars that will help augment operational costs should we need them in the future.”NDP Leader Brian Mason, who will attend the event, said it’s disappointing that Premier Alison Redford’s Tories need these kinds of think-tank sessions to get themselves out of a hole they’ve dug but refuse to acknowledge.“There were major tax cuts under (former premier) Ralph Klein for profitable corporations and for the most-wealthy of Albertans — and middle-class taxes have actually increased compared to what you might pay in B.C. or Ontario,” said Mason.Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith said she will attend the summit because she sees the topics as trial balloons on where the government wants to go.“We believe infrastructure has to be done on a pay-as-you-go basis over a 10-year time horizon (and) have a public, prioritized list,” said Smith.“They’re just trying to find all kinds of fancy ways of packaging up more borrowing.”Along with the summit, the province is also seeking ideas through an online survey and 11 open-house meetings starting Oct. 9 in Athabasca and ending Oct. 18 in Edson.This is the second economic summit. The first was held at Calgary’s Mount Royal University in February.Some panellists at that event urged the province look at a sales tax or consumption tax to bring in revenue.But Horner reiterated the province is not considering a sales tax.He said the catastrophic June floods that wiped out roads and bridges and other infrastructure in southern Alberta in June will factor into Saturday’s discussions.The flood has changed capital priorities, he said, but wouldn’t be more specific.“The capital plan will change, that’s one thing we do know. We’re in the process right now of prioritizing the projects, but it’s a little early for me to give any kind of (specific) indication.” read more

Google Maps en 8 bits

first_imgGoogle Maps en 8 bitsUn poisson d’avril pour le moins original. Le 1er avril, la firme américaine a présenté son service de cartographie dans une version 8 bits.A première vue, on pourrait croire à un jeu de rôle à l’ancienne, sur console, avec sa carte des mondes grossière. Il n’en est rien. Google a décidé de proposer une version 8 bits de son service et l’on peut y voir les plus grands monuments du monde, dans les plus grandes capitales, dessinés comme s’il s’agissait d’un jeu vidéo. La tour Eiffel, le Louvre, Buckhingham Palace, Big Ben ou encore la statue de la Liberté, le mont Fuji…tout y est. Des petits personnages arborent aussi les maps, indiquant les différentes localisation de Google. Par exemple, on les trouvera non loin de l’Opéra, à Paris, où se situent les locaux de la firme en France.Pour le moment, cette version 8 bits est encore disponible sur le site de Google Maps (dans le mode “Quête” ,à droite de l’écran) donc n’hésitez pas à jeter un œil.Le 2 avril 2012 à 12:45 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Outbrain Rallies an Additional 35 Million

first_imgOutbrain has now raised a total of $99 million after tacking on another reported $35 million this week. The content recommendation company is said to be targeting a valuation of $1 billion, and will look to raise $100-300 million in order to roll out its IPO.Of course right now everything is speculative, and despite the flurry of investments into Outbrain, no statement has been issued regarding a possible IPO, new product launch or acquisition. The company has only stated that its investment rounds are nothing more than fundraising opportunities. What exactly they are fundraising for remains a mystery.Outbrain’s product is innocuously positioned at the bottom of content pages, and offers readers links to similar content. The company reports that the product has been installed on more than 100,000 sites, including a network of 700 “premium publishers.” Also, the company says that it offers up more than 100 billion recommendations each month.last_img read more

Patients in the Midwest region who are suffering from lingering head and brain injuries may now use the software designed to statistically measure brain diagnostics to understand the biological basis of their symptoms for a more direct path to treatment and recovery.Headquartered in Denver, CereScan uses its patented process to combine patient-clinical information, functional brain imaging and advanced processing software to help medical providers and their patients find a more complete and accurate diagnosis. The software measures blood flow in up to 160 regions of the brain, which can reveal how cells are working in the brain. Through its agreement, NCH has integrated CereScan’s process, using qSPECT (quantitative single photon emission computed tomography) imaging data to assist referring physicians in the evaluation of complex neurological conditions.“CereScan values the practice philosophy of NCH. Both parties believe that every person is unique and so is their diagnosis and treatment,” said neurosurgeon Shaun T. O’Leary, M.D., Ph.D., FAANS. “Through the clinical data, the innovations and the imaging software available through CereScan, we have a plethora of resources to make NCH an even higher-quality institution for brain disorders.”Headed by O’Leary, NCH’s Neuroscience Center will provide patients with full-service care for brain injuries. The NCH Neuroscience Center specializes in treating complex neurological conditions affecting the brain, nerves and spinal cord.For more information: www.cerescan.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more News | Neuro Imaging | January 31, 2017 Northwest Community Healthcare Adds CereScan Brain Imaging and Processing Software Software will help reach more complete, accurate diagnosis for patients with head and chronic brain injuries Technology | Artificial Intelligence | June 19, 2019 Third FDA Clearance Announced for Zebra-Med’s AI Solution for Brain Bleed Alerts Zebra Medical Vision announced it has received its third U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for… read more News | Neuro Imaging | May 17, 2019 New Study Evaluates Head CT Examinations and Patient Complexity Computed tomography (CT) of the head uses special X-ray equipment to help assess head injuries, dizziness and other… read morelast_img read more

How Facebook data scientists use Bayesian optimization for tuning their online systems

first_imgFacebook data scientists had released a paper, Constrained Bayesian Optimization with Noisy Experiments in 2017 where they describe using Bayesian optimization to design rounds of A/B tests based on prior test results. An A/B test is a randomized experiment, used to determine which variant of A and B is more “effective”. They are used for improving a product. Facebook has a large array of backend systems serving billions of people every day. They have a large number of internal parameters that must be tuned carefully using live, randomized experiments, also known as A/B tests. Individual experiments may take a week or longer, so there is a challenge to optimize a set of parameters with the least number of experiments. Bayesian optimization Bayesian optimization is a technique used to solve optimization problems where the objective function (the online metric of interest) does not have an analytic expression. It can only be evaluated through some time consuming operations like a randomized experiment. Bayesian optimization allows joint tuning of more parameters with fewer experiments compared to a grid search or manual tuning. It also helps in finding better values. The Gaussian process (GP) is a Bayesian model that works well for Bayesian optimization. GP provides good uncertainty estimates of how an online metric varies with the parameters of interest. It is illustrated as follows: Source: Facebook research blog The work in the paper was motivated by several challenges in using Bayesian optimization for tuning online systems. The challenges are noise, constraints, and batch experimentation. In the paper, the authors describe a Bayesian approach for handling observation noise in which they include the posterior uncertainty induced by noise in EI’s expectation. In the paper, they describe a Bayesian approach for handling observation noise. A posterior uncertainty is induced by noise in EI’s expectation. Instead of computing the expectation of I(x) under the posterior of f(x), it is computed under the joint posterior of f(x) and f(x*). This expectation no longer has a closed form like El but can easily draw samples of values at past observations f(x_1), …, f(x_n) from the GP posterior. The conditional distribution f(x) | f(x_1), …, f(x_n) has closed form. The results The approach described in the paper is used to optimize various systems at Facebook. Two such optimizations are described in the paper. The first is to optimize six parameters from one of Facebook’s ranking systems. The second one was to optimize seven numeric compiler flags for the HipHop Virtual Machine (HHVM). The web servers powering Facebook use the HHVM to serve requests. The end goal of this optimization was to reduce CPU usage on the web servers, with a constraint of keeping the peak memory usage less. This following figure shows the CPU usage of each configuration tested. There is a 100 total, it also shows the probability that each point satisfied the memory constraint: Source: Facebook research blog The first 30 iterations were randomly generated configurations depicted as a green line. After this, the Bayesian optimization was used to identify parameter configurations to be evaluated. It was observed that Bayesian optimization was able to find better configurations that are more likely to satisfy the constraints. The findings are that Bayesian optimization is an effective and robust tool for optimizing via noisy experiments. For full details, visit the Facebook research blog.

Is it actually possible to have a free and fair election ever

first_imgOn Monday, Carole Cadwalladr, a British journalist and Pulitzer award finalist, in her TED talk revealed how Facebook impacted the Brexit voting by enabling the spreading of calculated disinformation. Brexit, short for “British exit”, refers to UK’s withdrawal from the European Union (EU). Back in June 2016, when the United Kingdom European Union membership referendum happened, 51.9% of the voters supported leaving the EU. The final conclusion was set to come out on 29 March 2019, but it is now extended to 31 October 2019. Cadwalladr was asked by the editor of The Observer, the newspaper she was working at the time, to visit South Wales to investigate why so many voters there had elected to leave EU. So, she decided to visit Ebbw Vale, a town at the head of the valley formed by the Ebbw Fawr tributary of the Ebbw River in Wales. She wanted to find out why this town had the highest percentage of ‘Leave’ votes (62%). Brexit in South Wales: The reel and the real After reaching the town, Cadwalladr recalls that she was “taken aback” when she saw how this town has evolved over the years. The town was gleaming with new infrastructures including entrepreneurship center, sports center, better roads, and more, all funded by the EU. After seeing this development, she felt “a weird sense of unreality” when a young man stated his reason for voting to leave the EU was that it has failed to do anything for him. Not only this young man but people all over the town also stated the same reason for voting to leave the EU. “They said that they wanted to take back control,” adds Cadwalladr. Another major reason behind Brexit was immigration. However, Cadwalladr adds that she barely saw any immigrants and was unable to relate to the immigration problem the citizens of the town were talking about. So, she verified her observation with the actual records and was surprised to find that Ebbw Vale, in fact, has one of the lowest immigration rates. “So I was just a bit baffled because I couldn’t really understand where people were getting their information from,” she adds. So, after her story got published, a reader reached out to her regarding some Facebook posts and ads, which she described to her as “quite scary stuff about immigration, and especially about Turkey.” These posts were misinforming people that Turkey was going to join the EU and its 76 million population will promptly emigrate to current member states. “What happens on Facebook, stays on Facebook” After getting informed about these ads, when Cadwalladr checked Facebook to look for herself, she could not find even a trace of them because there is no archive of ads that are shown to people on Facebook. She said,  “This referendum that will have this profound effect on Britain forever and it already had a profound effect. The Japanese car manufacturers that came to Wales and the North-East people who replaced the mining jobs are already going because of Brexit. And, this entire referendum took place in darkness because it took place on Facebook.” And, this is why the British parliament has called Mark Zuckerberg several times to get answers to their questions, but each time he refused. Nobody has a definitive answer to questions like what ads were shown to people, how these ads impacted them, how much money was spent on these ads, or what data was analyzed to target these people, but Facebook. Cadwalladr adds that she and other journalists observed that during the referendum multiple crimes happened. In Britain, there is a limited amount of budget that you are allowed to spend on election campaigns to prevent politicians from buying the votes. But, in the last few days before the Brexit vote the  “biggest electoral fraud in Britain” happened. It was found that the official Vote Leave campaign laundered £750,000 from another campaign entity that was ruled illegal by the electoral commission. This money was spent, as you can guess, on the online disinformation campaigns. She adds, “And you can spend any amount of money on Facebook or on Google or on YouTube ads and nobody will know, because they’re black boxes. And this is what happened.” The law was also broken by a group named “Leave.EU”. This group was led by Nigel Farage, a British politician, whose Brexit Party is doing quite well in the European elections. The campaign was funded by Arron Banks, who is being referred to the National Crime Agency because the electoral commission was not able to figure out from where he was able to provide the money. Going further into the details, she adds, “And I’m not even going to go into the lies that Arron Banks has told about his covert relationship with the Russian government. Or the weird timing of Nigel Farage’s meetings with Julian Assange and with Trump’s buddy, Roger Stone, now indicted, immediately before two massive WikiLeaks dumps, both of which happened to benefit Donald Trump.” While looking into Trump’s relationship to Farage, she came across Cambridge Analytica. She tracked down one of its ex-employees, Christopher Wiley, who was brave enough to reveal that this company has worked for Trump and Brexit. It used data from 87 million people from Facebook to understand their individual fears and better target them with Facebook ads. Cadwalladr’s investigation involved so many big names, that it was quite expected to get some threats. The owner of Cambridge Analytica, Robert Mercer threatened to sue them multiple times. Later on, one day ahead of publishing, they received a legal threat from Facebook. But, this did not stop them from publishing their findings in the Observer. A challenge to the “gods of Silicon Valley” Addressing the leaders of the tech giants, Cadwalladr said, “Facebook, you were on the wrong side of history in that. And you were on the wrong side of history in this — in refusing to give us the answers that we need. And that is why I am here. To address you directly, the gods of Silicon Valley: Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg and Larry Page and Sergey Brin and Jack Dorsey, and your employees and your investors, too.” These tech giants can’t get away by just saying that they will do better in the future. They need to first give us the long-overdue answers so that these type of crimes are stopped from happening again. Comparing the technology they created to a crime scene, she now calls for fixing the broken laws. “It’s about whether it’s actually possible to have a free and fair election ever again. Because as it stands, I don’t think it is,” she adds. To watch her full talk, visit TED.com.
