It's fair to say the BBC's recent decision to scrap free TV licences for 3.7 million pensioners aged over 75 has caused some controversy. Dame Helen Mirren called the changes 'heartbreaking'; Theresa May said she was 'very disappointed' with the plan; and an Age UK petition urging the BBC to reconsider has garnered more than 230,000 signatures. Caroline Abrahams, Age UK’s charity director, said: "If this scheme goes ahead we are going to see sick and disabled people in their 80s and 90s who are completely dependent on their cherished TV for companionship and news, forced to give it up. "The BBC’s decision will cause those affected enormous anxiety and distress, and some anger too."

The spreadsheet would also contain eight deadlines, each set just a few hours later. Her job was to rewrite each story before her deadline. Tamara's job was to … [Read more...] about ‘I was a Macedonian fake news writer’
11 - 13 June 2019, Helsinki, Finland. The highly anticipated track about AI at the HIMSS & Health 2.0 Conference 2019 is called "AI Beyond the Buzz". We hear about Artificial Intelligence all the time, but how many of us are actually putting it into practice, using it or implementing it in a clinical setting? Not as many as you might have thought. According to a recent survey conducted by Technology Review, 40% of organisations who claim they are using AI are in fact not. Why are we struggling with AI? Are we simply not ready for it in healthcare? Miikka Korja, Chief Innovation Officer at the Helsinki University Hospital in Finland has collaborated in the making of this track and will be sharing his thoughts and experiences on the topic. In his first session, Korja proposes a reality check: What can AI deliver TODAY and what are we really ready for?
