This week we kick off with an article on an Anti-NATO Disinformation campaign primarily targeting some of the NATO members such as Lithuania, Latvia, and Poland. The next piece highlights how the efforts of the researchers from the University of Pittsburg have helped in accurately recognizing prostate cancer by leveraging Artificial Intelligence. We also highlight how the Indian Meteorological Department applied Artificial intelligence to enhance the nowcast predictions by 3-6 hours. After this, is an article on the ethical and environmental implications of OpenAI’s trailblazing machine named GPT-3 which acquires knowledge of the world by accessing enormous quantities of written text. Next, we cover a data breach at Dunzo, an Indian delivery services company, that led to exposing customer information such as device information, email addresses, phone numbers, and last geographic locations. Lastly, we have included an article by the World Economic Forum that focuses on the importance of open access to global data on individual patient’s treatment decisions and outcomes.
Anti-NATO Disinformation Campaign Leveraged CMS Compromises
Researchers have uncovered a widespread influence campaign that aims to discredit the Northern Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), an intergovernmental military alliance between 30 North American and European countries.
Artificial Intelligence Identifies Prostate Cancer With Near-Perfect Accuracy
A study published today in The Lancet Digital Health by UPMC and University of Pittsburgh researchers demonstrates the highest accuracy to date in recognizing and characterizing prostate cancer using an artificial intelligence (AI) program.
IMD to explore artificial intelligence to improve forecasting, predict extreme weather events
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) is planning to use artificial intelligence in weather forecasting, especially for issuing nowcasts, which can help improve 3-6 hours of prediction of extreme weather events, its Director-General Mrutunjay Mohapatra said on Sunday.
GPT-3: an AI game-changer or an environmental disaster?
Unless you’ve been holidaying on Mars, or perhaps in Spain (alongside the transport secretary), you may have noticed some fuss on social media about something called GPT-3. The GPT bit stands for the “generative pre-training” of a language model that acquires knowledge of the world by “reading” enormous quantities of written text. The “3” indicates that this is the third generation of the system.
Dunzo data breach contained personal information of over 3 million accounts
The Dunzo data breach, reported earlier this month, was bigger than earlier expected. Information leaked through the data breach has now been uploaded on haveibeenpwned.com, a website that is used by security researchers to help the public find whether their data had been part of any breaches. Through this upload, the website details 3,465,259 accounts of Dunzo users.
Why patients need access to global data: a patient’s view
Patients need to be able to access real-world data from other patients about treatments so they can determine, with their physicians, the best treatment options for themselves. Barriers to global data sharing, including privacy and malpractice concerns and institutional competition, inhibit patients from obtaining these potentially helpful insights.
