Well, one can consult Urban Dictionary, but there is not much there in this case.

Cuchulainn, do you know Moycullen Bogs (close to Galway)? I really like bogs and I'm wondering if it's worth to take time for visit there.

Artificial Intelligence in Health CareWill the Value Match the Hype?

"The most pressing problem with the US health care system is not a lack of data or analytics but changing the behavior of millions of patients and clinicians. Physician behaviors, including ordering tests, procedures, pharmaceuticals, and other treatments, are responsible for 80% of health care costs. Similarly, patient behaviors, including eating well, exercising, not smoking, moderate alcohol consumption, and medication adherence, influence more than half of the development of and outcomes related to chronic diseases. A narrow focus on data and analytics will distract the health system from what is needed to achieve health care transformation: meaningful behavior change."




That's what I often see: AI algorithms harnessed to search for genes, complex therapies, risky procedures, etc. to treat all sorts of easily preventable illnesses. Ovbiously, it's neither in the interest of those promising such wonders nor of those buying them to fix most of those things.

So, is voice recognition tied with machine learning? I am really curious because I decided to pay more attention to call center qa and I have a few options including the ones based on the voice recognition technology so I want to get a bit more familiar with the subject.

I have made various trading models for Fixed Income market in *****, but ML/ AI never worked for this market, nor are the people comfortable trading using ML. Trading is not that complicated after all, I guess.
