Al Gore's still alive and kicking, the 'algorithmically underserved' and ultrasound longevity cleanses
Welcome to a Looking Forward’s weekly Triple Shot digest, three things of interest in healthy aging, impact and Web3. [Resending as yesterday’s didn’t send.]
1. Number of the week: 600,000
Al Gore’s powerful and emotional tirade at WEF included a remarkable stat that the energy imbalance - excess heat trapped that is warming the planet - is equivalent to the energy that would be released from exploding 600,000 Hiroshima bombs, every day. (Starts at 1:52 in this video)
2. AI’s ‘Algorithmically Underserved’ populations
The Mayo Clinic’s John Halamka and others argue that we need to spend time ensuring the the AI algorithms that are being created don’t overlook vital populations, such as those on lower incomes, the homeless, or certain racial groups. Addressing this will require greater awareness, new processes and innovative ideas such as an ‘ingredients label’ on black box algorithms indicating what their underlying data is comprised.
3. Is ultrasound the elixir of life?
It seems that ultrasound waves have been able to reactivate formerly aged / senescent cells.
Feedback and ideas always welcome. Signing off for the weekend here in Melbourne.
