AI+MD Blog: new publications vs big retractions

Congratulations to some of our select clients on the recent research publications! These papers come amid the recent global scandal of two of the world’s leading medical journals, NEJM and Lancet, retracting two COVID-related studies. During the global COVID-19 pandemic, fast and reliable research is desperately needed to save lives; yet can the world trust us and our fellow scientists to do good science? AI like traditional statistics and science more generally are simply neutral tools–without good ethics how can we do good science?
