Imperfect Information, Imperfect Superhuman AI

  • Medical diagnosis and treatment are one of the most developed and prolific areas of machine learning research.
  • Machine learning algorithms are applied to find patterns among the massive amounts of data to diagnose the patient.
  • The algorithm’s job is to look at various success chances of treatment, the diagnosis and the person, and recommend the best possible course of treatment to save their life.
  • An agent that is recommending treatments would probably have to look at the success rates of the various therapies as part of the many data features to analyze.
  • An AI agent recommending treatments and looking at metrics like success rate could make the wrong bet.
  • Even by being able to outperform humans in areas of imperfect information, we still depend on accurate and unbiased data about the problems at hand.

'Breaking Into Startups': Torch CEO and Well Clinic founder Cameron Yarbrough on mental health & coaching

  • One of the organizations that has set out to change this negative association is Torch, a startup that combines the therapeutic benefits of executive coaching with data-driven analytics to track outcomes.
  • But Yarbrough is clear that his goal with the company is to “democratize” access to professional coaching, in hopes of providing the same kind of mental health counseling and support to employees in all levels of an organization.
  • In this episode, Yarbrough discusses the history and trajectory of Torch, his experience scaling a company many considered unscalable, and the methods he uses to manage his own emotional and mental health as the CEO of an expanding startup.
  • On today’s episode, you’re going to understand the importance of therapy, mental health and coaches, as well as how historically, it has been inaccessible to people and how Cameron is using his background to democratize this for the world.

Understanding Bernoulli and Binomial Distributions

  • Among discrete random variables (that means, the support of the random variable is a countable number of values), probably the most important probability distributions are Bernoulli and Binomial distributions.
  • The idea is that, whenever you are running an experiment which might lead either to a success or to a failure, you can associate with your success (labeled with 1) a probability p, while your insuccess (labeled with 0) will have probability (1-p).
  • This distribution describes the behavior the outputs of n random experiments, each having a Bernoulli distribution with probability p.
  • Note that, if the Binomial distribution has n=1 (only on trial is run), hence it turns to a simple Bernoulli distribution.
  • As you can see, the higher the number of trials n, the more the shape of our Binomial random variable recalls the well-known bell-shaped curve of Gaussian distribution.

Want to speak at tech conferences? Here’s everything you need to know to get on stage

  • Giving talks at tech events is a goal for many technologists, for good reason: it’s a great way to meet people who share similar interests, raise your profile in a specific community, and sharpen your storytelling and technical skills.
  • Once you have a goal in mind, it’s time to find venues and events that might be interested in having you.
  • While marquee tech events like re:Invent and the TNW Conference might be the ultimate goal, it’s a good idea to start with local meetups and smaller conferences at first.
  • I’m working on writing better submissions and finding more opportunities to present, and any insight you can share would greatly help me with these goals.
  • Use signposting: Share an agenda or talk outline, use visual cues or design elements that help the audience know how much you’ve covered and how much is left.

Uber lost an eye-popping $5 billion in a single quarter

  • Uber lost more money this spring than it did in any previous quarter, revealing on Thursday a dramatic $5.2 billion deficit in the months before and after its disappointing initial public offering.
  • Losses of that size in just a three-month period might ordinarily trigger yet another round of questioning about whether the ride-hailing company can ever build a profitable business, a concern that has dogged the company since it became a Silicon Valley darling.
  • Since its second quarter last year, Uber’s revenue grew by just 14 percent, to nearly $3.2 billion.
  • The $5.2 billion loss size spooked Wall Street on Thursday.
  • That has prompted some criticism of Uber’s leadership, including CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, and more widespread hand-wringing about whether Uber will be as much of a success story as a public company as it was a private one.
