This Algorithm Reads X-rays Better Than Doctors Do

When you think of fields that are being affected by automation, medicine don’t usually come to mind. But recent developments in artificial intelligence have doctors in at least one specialization worried that algorithms are coming for their jobs.

Researchers at Stanford University are developing a model that can screen X-rays for pneumonia and other diseases, a task that’s usually done by radiologists. When tested against a panel of expert radiologists, the algorithm performed at the same level — and sometimes better than humans — in diagnosing several pathologies.

And they’re among many doctors experimenting with artificial intelligence to read medical images. VICE News spoke with radiologists working on this new technology about whether it could one day replace them.

How The Yellow Vest Protests Forced Macron To Back Down (HBO)

After a fourth weekend of violent protest, French president Emmanuel Macron has desperately tried to appease those who say his policies are making them poorer.

In a televised address designed to take the heat out of the largest mass protest to hit France since the student uprising of 1968, Macron said the minimum wage would be raised and taxes on pensioners cut.

The Gilets Jaunes movement, named after the yellow high visibility vests worn by its members, staged demonstrations in most major cities in France over the weekend. More than 1,700 people were arrested. One of the demonstrations took place in the industrial city of Le Mans, southwest of Paris. At its peak, the Le Mans protest involved 300 people.

VICE News spoke to Peter Pilon, a factory worker manning a barricade made from tires and wooden shipping pallets, built to prevent a company that distributes gasoline and diesel from operating.

Inside The Search For Nearly 1,000 People Missing From The California Wildfire (HBO)

CHICO, California — As the Camp Fire continues to burn, 12 days later, and at 66 percent containment, 77 deaths have been confirmed, and 993 are left unaccounted for.

With over 151,000 acres burned, the search for the unaccounted is unprecedented.

“We don’t normally have a process to deal with this many unaccounted for individuals,” Butte County Sheriff and Coroner Kory Honea told VICE News. But the list has posed several challenges for authorities trying to track everyone down. Issues range from: People not knowing they are on the list, duplicated names due to converged data sets, to even finding remains in all the debris.

While the list of unaccounted people represents an imperfect picture of the missing, it does illustrate the large retirement community in the area. Paradise, the city hardest hit by the fires, was known, in part, as a retirement community, a quiet place for people to get away.

VICE News spent time with Tammie Konicki, during her search for her missing 64-year-old mother, who was last seen getting into a car the morning of the fire.

“Hopefully she is somewhere and just doesn’t have a way to get a hold of us,” Konicki said of her mother. “Right now, for me, no news is good news, because no news means she hasn’t been found dead,” she said. “She’s not one of those bodies as of yet.”

Facebook’s Political Ad Tool Lets Us Buy Ads “Paid For” By Mike Pence and ISIS (HBO)

Last year, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said making political advertising more transparent was one of the most important things the company would do after it was revealed Russians used the platform to attempt to manipulate the 2016 presidential election. But according to a small test run by VICE News, one of the new features Facebook rolled out this year is easily subject to manipulation.

In May, Facebook added a mandatory “Paid For” disclosure for every ad that relates to politics or what Facebook calls an “issue of national importance.” The idea is to lift the veil on the kind of inflammatory ads placed by anonymous advertisers that plagued Facebook during the 2016 race.

But when VICE News placed ads on behalf of prominent political figures such as Vice President Mike Pence, and Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, Facebook quickly approved them. We also tried submitting an ad on behalf of “Islamic State,” which was also approved by Facebook. We were able to get Facebook’s approval for political ads that included these names within the Paid For disclosure.

Why Democrats Care So Much About Early Voting (HBO)

PHOENIX, Arizona — Election Day is still a couple of weeks away. But in dozens of states across the country, voters can already vote — and Democrats are pouring millions of dollars into making that happen.

Resources are finite in any campaign, especially in the final days. A dollar spent is a precious thing. An hour spent is even more precious.

The Democrats often struggle to get their base out in midterm elections. But early voting gives them more chances to try to make that happen.

VICE News goes inside the Democrats’ early vote turnout operation in Arizona to see how it works.

“People who need to take a little more time to do the research are also going to vote early because they’ve got the opportunity to do so,” Felecia Rotellini, Arizona Democratic Party chairwoman, told VICE News. And we believe that when Arizona voters — Republican, Democrats, independent — go to look at whom they should vote for, they’re gonna pick Democrats.”
