Some of y’all might be a little too young to remember Handi Man, “Defender of the Handicapped.” Handi Man appeared on our TV screens way back from 1990 to 1994 on a TV show called “In Living Color,” created by Keenen Ivory Wayans featuring several of his siblings and introducing Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx, who went on to become mega stars. The character Handi Man was a black superhero that came to the rescue of handicapped people around the globe. Indeed, handicapped people were being made fun of, but in a way that was not offensive (to most people).
To support this claim, the personal gateways at the end users’ side will act as intermediate nodes (called fog nodes) between the IoHT devices and the cloud based healthcare services. In such solution, these fog nodes will host a holistic privacy middleware that executes a two stage concealment process within a distributed data collection protocol that utilizes the hierarchical nature of the IoHT devices. This will unburden the constrained IoHT devices from performing intensive privacy preserving processes.
The post below is written for the upcoming Spanish translation of The Book of Why, which was announced today. It expresses my firm belief that the current data fitting direction taken by Science is temporary (read my lips!), that the future of Science lies in causal data interpretation and that we should prepare ourselves for the backlash swing.Much has been said about how ill prepared our health care system was in coping with catastrophic outbreaks like COVID 19. Yet viewed from the corner of my expertise, the ill preparedness can also be seen as a failure of information technology to keep track of and interpret the outpour of data that have arrived from multiple and conflicting sources, corrupted by noise and omission, some by sloppy collection and some by deliberate misreporting, AI could and should have equipped society with intelligent data fusion technology, to interpret such conflicting pieces of information and reason its way out of the confusion.Speaking from the perspective of causal inference research, I have been part of a team that has developed a complete theoretical underpinning for such problems; a development that is briefly described in Chapter 10 of The Book of Why.
This point has been made many times, but J Cole discography has BEEN comprised of social commentary. Y know that he rarely uses social media, and he been out at protests showing support. On the flip side, I know people who have never been involved in BLM or advocated for ideology before this trend now jumping on the bandwagon and retweeting/sharing dozens of posts a day on social media.
