The town that’s found a potent cure for illness – community | George Monbiot | Opinion | The Guardian
What this provisional data appears to show is that when isolated people who have health problems are supported by community groups and volunteers, the number of emergency admissions to hospital falls spectacularly. While across the whole of Somerset emergency hospital admissions rose by 29% during the three years of the study, in Frome they fell by 17%. Julian Abel, a consultant physician in palliative care and lead author of the draft paper, remarks: “No other interventions on record have reduced emergency admissions across a population.”

Fair Is Not the Default - Library - Google Design
When the child smiled or laughed, participants agreed universally that the infant’s dominant emotion was joy. But when the child interacted with something jarring, like a buzzer or a jack-in-the-box, there was a split. If a participant had been told the child was a girl, they thought her dominant emotion was fear. But if they'd been told the child was a boy, participants thought the dominant emotion was anger. Same child, same reaction, different perception.

design | Architecture and UX design of KAML-D
KAML-D can be deployed on any cloud (or on-premises) platform that allows you to run Kubernetes. Most of the components are open source. As a SaaS, it integrates with the cloud providers (user) identity management system, on-prem something like LDAP.

Existing open source components KAML-D uses:

Kubernetes for workload management and to ensure portability
TensorFlow for machine learning execution
JupyterHub for data scientists (dev/test of algorithms)
Storage layer: To hold the datasets, Minio, Ceph, as well as cloud-provider specific offerings such as EBS, with built-in dotmesh support for snapshots
New components KAML-D introduces:

KAML-D Workbench: a graphical UI for data scientists, data engineers, developers, and SREs to manage datasets as well as to test and deploy ML algorithms. Builds on the metadata layer to find and visualize datasets. Builds on the storage layer to store and load datasets.
KAML-D Metadata Hub: a data and metadata layer using PrestoDB and Elasticsearch for indexing and querying datasets.
KAML-D Observation Hub: a comprehensive observability suite for SREs and admins (as well as developers on the app level) to understand the health of the KAML-D platform and troubleshoot issues on the platform and application level:
Prometheus and Grafana for end-to-end metrics and monitoring/alerting
EFK stack for (aggregrated) logging
Jaeger for (distributed) tracing
The user management and access control part is outside of the scope of KAML-D but standard integration points such as LDAP are offered.
