Yesterday my version of the hospital and Acxiom & Mastercard data, was being read all of the Senate, saw in my stats which is great as this a broken model here and won't work.  I used to write code and software and I have had failures myself years ago, so this broken and you can read what I had to say here as this is all about making money selling data.

Don't be sucked in on all of this as everything modeled in the virtual world along with values does not work in the real world.  It was pretty neat last week on Twitter too where Acxiom decided to reach for a chat and they got a nice earful about their flawed data and they they went quiet and went away:) 

My blog readers were warned twice last year about the emerging efforts of MasterCard that were coming..here you go if you want to read it.  I see these things coming way ahead, goes back to my coding days to use both the sales and nerd of my head to figure it out before everyone else.  Follow the data and the money and bingo it's right there.

So again I was happy to Senator Warren's office all over my blog for sure as this at the hospital is just one case of a broken model being pushed to make money selling data and doctors do not have time for it either.  I wrote an EMR in the early days so I'm right there with a ton of hands experience to talk, been there coded that.

Perfect example here!  Context is everything and boy do I have a video for all to see here...Professor Siefe, who gave this lecture at Google a couple years ago just nails it and it was profound I keep it as one of my 4 videos that are a must see in the footer of my blog..."there's no happiness algorithm" or one for the perfect butt...

Then you can move on to this one and find out about the jounobots out there at the same time...quantitated justifications for things that are just not true and I use a clip of the professor here again.  He does math and is no nonsense...

If the President wants to help the middle class and manufacturing, then we need accountability in financial, healthcare and other math models as we can battle hard but if models and algorithms on servers running 24/7 keep running without adjustment, we spin our wheels, Algo Duping Page has a bunch of videos that address how this works

This is not the typical "witch" hunt this time, rather an educational witch hunt for both consumers and Congress...billions in profits are made folks selling your data in the private industry, same folks who create the tools for the government...
