Judge miscalculated how much Johnson & Johnson would pay in opioid verdict

  • As part of the landmark verdict in August, Judge Thad Balkman set aside $107,683,000 to help combat neonatal abstinence syndrome, or NAS.
  • On Tuesday, Balkman agreed with Johnson and Johnson regarding the error.
  • This was the first state trial attempting to hold a pharmaceutical company accountable for one of the worst epidemics in history.
  • The judge still needs to decide if the court will continue to monitor the opioid crisis for the next 20 years and potentially award more money to the state.
  • He also needs to decide if Johnson & Johnson should receive credit for the $300 million Oklahoma will be receiving from Teva Pharmaceuticals and Purdue Pharma -- those two companies settled with the state before the judge's initial ruling.
  • Balkman didn't say when he would rule.
  • Johnson & Johnson has already indicated they will appeal any decision.

Question answering for board games

  • As you could imagine, having a model that analyzes the semantics of both the question and text is fairly complex.
  • One broader paradigm to understand when looking at question answering systems is open-domain vs.
  • So question answering systems sound pretty amazing, but do note like many other NLP areas, it is still growing and does have shortcomings.
  • I won’t elaborate much here, but if you are interested I encourage reading the article Survey on Challenges of Question Answering in the Semantic Web. It gives a good overview of some challenges these systems still face.
  • What if you had a tool where anyone could just ask a question and find the particular rule without having to dig through the text manually?
  • cdQa has some other really nice features, like being able to manually annotate text and easily exporting your pipeline for use on a website, so I encourage exploring it further.

YouTube's next big change could penalize anyone who creates for kids

  • YouTube just changed a major rule for anyone who uploads videos, ostensibly to protect kids — but now content creators are confused as to how to follow it.
  • The FTC was attempting to determine whether the site had violated the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
  • Any video they mark as being for children will not have a comments section, info cards, personalized ads, or a number of other things many video makers rely on.
  • So what happens if they just don’t mark the video as being for kids?
  • Well, if the video is ruled to be for kids without having been labeled as such, the content creator could be sued by the FTC directly.
  • If you search for “COPPA” on YouTube, you can see video after video from the last few days of creators attempting to determine whether they’ll be able to continue making their old content.

The NSA has stopped collecting location data from US cellphones without a warrant

  • American intelligence agencies quietly stopped the warrantless collection of US phone location data last year, according to a letter from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released today.
  • In a response to Wyden released today, a representative for the office said intelligence agencies have already stopped the practice of collecting US location data without a warrant.
  • Previously, agencies collected that information through surveillance powers granted under the Patriot Act. But since the Supreme Court’s decision, the agencies have stopped the practice, and they now back up those searches through a warrant, under the legal standard of probable cause.
  • In the letter to Wyden, the intelligence community official writes that the Supreme Court’s decision presented “significant constitutional and statutory issues,” but would not explicitly rule out using the tools in the future.

The EPA's Anti-Science ‘Transparency’ Rule Has a Long History

  • It would allow the US Environmental Protection Agency to pick and choose what science it uses to write legislation on air, water, and toxic pollution that affects human health and the environment.
  • The “Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science” rule would require that scientists disclose all of their raw data, including confidential medical records, before the agency could consider an academic study’s conclusions, according to a draft copy obtained this week by the New York Times.
  • At a hearing of the House Science Committee Wednesday entited “Strengthening Science or Strengthening Silence?”, EPA science advisor Jennifer Orme-Zavaleta was put in the difficult position of defending a regulation she either wasn’t able to discuss or didn’t seem to know about.
  • Although Orme-Zavaleta has spent 38 years at the agency and is its top scientist, she isn’t reviewing the new rule and couldn’t answer many questions from the congressional panel.
