Awesome, not awesome.

"Using predictive analytics, researchers developed a machine learning tool to determine how lupus nephritis patients will respond to specific treatment options.

Inflammatory kidney disease occurs in about half of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLM). Additionally, nearly half of lupus nephritis patients will develop chronic and potentially end-stage kidney disease that requires dialysis or kidney transplant." - Erin McNemar, MPA, Associate Editor Learn More from HealthITAnalytics >

#Not Awesome
"A new tool with cutting-edge image recognition AI lets you visualize the future effects of climate change on any place in the world — including your own home.

The project, titled  "This Climate Does Not Exist," lets you enter the address of your current home or your favorite travel destination and see what it could look like years later once climate change has taken its toll.

You can see how Disneyland will look like covered in smog, the way extreme smog blanketed Beijing in 2014. You can see what your childhood home will look like after it is flooded by rising sea levels, the way floods devastated Indonesia in 2020 after widespread deforestation." - Michelle Shen, Reporter Learn More from USA Today >
