First PhD semester updates - Definitely picked up a bad coffee habit this semester. I feel like I can’t sit through class without my caramel coffee and an almond croissant. It’s seriously a problem. 😩 Luckily today was the last day of lectures this semester. Today was also the last day for my rotation at @harvardchansph. Feeling very fulfilled and grateful to have made it this far! Thank you for joining me on the ride! .

Are scientists hiding the weekend?
-
If you read my blog post about the cure for cancer, you’d understand my joke lol. This week has felt like the longest week ever, and I am exhausted. I launched my blog on Monday, and I also started my third (and hopefully last) lab rotation.
-
As you can imagine, a new lab comes with learning relatively new techniques and also reading a ton of literature relating to the work, and honestly, I still don’t understand any of it. I told myself this weekend I’m going to read the papers at least three times because as the new advisor told me: ‘you need to know this information even where you’re sleeping.’ Yikes!
-
However, even through the exhaustion, I’m remaining grateful. I was blessed and overwhelmed with support on the launch of my blog, and I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. I am also grateful that I get to wake up everyday with the opportunity to create life changing knowledge, because isn’t that what scientists do?
-
Also I’m still on cloud 9 after my boyfriend showed up at my door yesterday with flowers, donuts and dinner, literally just what I needed. I wish everyone a fun weekend even though I’ll be busy working and studying (priorities).

The Metropolitan Police Service has been secretly developing a new criminal database - Concern Hub - similar to the Gangs Matrix, the use of which was found to have led to serious breaches of data protection laws in November 2018.

In the Gangs Matrix, it was found that there were a disproportionate number of young black men included, with 75% of those on the matrix aged under 25, and 80% on the list being black.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is still actively investigating how third parties used the Gangs Matrix data that police shared with them, but declined to comment on the investigation or the Concern Hub database when asked if it had any knowledge of its development.

With @amnestyuk highlighting the bias and stigma attached to the use of the Matrix, more and more of these initiatives are being used globally. As the law enforcement increasingly use ‘intelligence-led’ operations, these sorts of initiatives directly affect how policing policies and priorities are being targeted on particular groups.

Basically:

human bias -> data bias -> AI bias -> institutional police bias -> more human bias

Check out our latest episode with Alex Fefegha, where we discuss this and AI bias/ethics. Also check out
