AI predicts how breast tumors will respond to chemotherapy

Artificial intelligence (AI) can help predict how a breast tumor will respond to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC), according to new findings published in the Journal of Digital Imaging.

Targeted therapies may only be effective in a small subset of breast cancers, which has contributed to the difficulty establishing a therapeutic benefit in a large, heterogeneous clinical trial.” The authors used a breast MRI tumor dataset to train a convolutional neural network (CNN).

Facebook, NYU Will Use Artificial Intelligence for Faster MRIs

August 21, 2018 -Facebook and NYU School of Medicine’s Department of Radiology have announced a new collaborative research project that will study the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to make MRI scans up to 10 times faster to complete.

Although MRIs show a greater level of detail than other medical images, these scans can take anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour, which is far longer than other imaging modalities.

Researchers will train neural networks to recognize the underlying structure of medical images and fill in the missing parts of the accelerated scans.

A mistake as simple as a few missing or moderated pixels could mean the difference between an all-clear scan and one in which radiologists find possible tumors or other issues.

fastMRI will use an imaging dataset collected by NYU School of Medicine that consists of 10,000 clinical cases and contains approximately 3 million MRIs of the knee, brain, and liver.

“We believe the fastMRI project will demonstrate how domain-specific experts from different fields and industries can work together to produce the kind of open research that will make a far-reaching and lasting positive impact in the world,”

Facebook AI For Making MRIs Ten Times Faster The artificial intelligence lab at Facebook has partnered with New York University's medical school to see if it can make magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examsten times faster.If MRIs areable to be done ten times faster, then it would allow radiologists to complete tests in a matter of minutes.

Apple Removes Onavo App Several years ago, Facebook acquired a mobile analytics company called Onavo — which had built a virtual private network (VPN) app called Onavo Protect.

Several months ago, Apple patched a feature that enabled iOS developers to request user permissions for accessing contacts and that information could be transferred to third parties.

In Onavo’s app description, it says “Because we're part of Facebook, we also use this info to improve Facebook products and services,gain insights into the products and services people value and build better experiences.” Internal Tool For Rating Trustworthy Users According to The Washington Post, Facebook has internally launched a tool that rates how trustworthy users are based on a scale of 0-1.

myPersonality App Gets Banned Facebook has banned a quiz app called myPersonality after the company behind the app refused an inspection of how the data is being used on as many as 4 million users.

So Facebook decided to take action against the myPersonality app after it was detected that user information was shared with research companies with “only limited protections in place.” This is only the second app that Facebook banned.

“(Lucio) has been outspoken on the need to build authentic global brands with integrity and from places of principle, and also on the importance of building diverse teams at every level in the organization.

We have never faced bigger challenges, and we have never had more opportunities to have a positive impact on the world — in our families, our friendships, our communities, and our democracy — by improving our products at their core, and then by telling the story outside that we all know to be true inside.” Facebook has had a rough year when it comes to PR.

We are able to link this network to Iranian state media through publicly available website registration information, as well as the use of related IP addresses and Facebook Pages sharing the same admins,' wrote Facebook'sHead of Cybersecurity Policy Nathaniel Gleicher.

'For example, one part of the network, 'Quest 4 Truth,' claims to be an independent Iranian media organization, but is in fact linked to Press TV, an English-language news network affiliated with Iranian state media.

Accounts and Pages linked to 'Liberty Front Press' typically posed as news and civil society organizations sharing information in multiple countries without revealing their true identity.'

5,000 Discriminatory Ad Targeting Options To Be Removed In a blog post, Facebook said that it is going to remove 5,000 advertising targeting options “to help prevent misuse.” The ad targeting options are largely based on ethnicity and religion.

For over a year, we have required advertisers we identify offering housing, employment or credit ads to certify compliance with our non-discrimination policy.

Instagram Instagram’s Virtual Communities For College Instagram is reportedly asking students to join groups with students at the same university in order to set up virtual communities, according to CNBC.Users who were invited to the test will be able to see lists arranged by a members’ classes so that they can network with people from the same people.And they will be able to see public Stories of theusers from within the member lists.
