Deep Dhillon, former Chief Data Scientist at Alliance Health Networks (now at http://www.xyonix.com), presents a talk titled "Mining Unstructured Healthcare Data" to computational linguistics students at the University of Washington on May 8, 2013. Every day doctors, researchers and health care professionals publish their latest medical findings continuously adding to the world's formalized medical knowledge represented by a corpus of millions of peer reviewed research studies. Meanwhile, millions of patients suffering from various conditions, communicate with one another in online discussion forums across the web; they seek both social comfort and knowledge. Medify analyzes the unstructured text of these health care professionals and patients by performing a deep NLP based statistical and lexical rule based relation extraction ultimately culminating in a large, searchable index powering a rapidly growing site trafficked by doctors, health care professionals, and advanced patients. We discuss the system at a high level, demonstrate key functionality, and explore what it means to develop a system like this in the confines of a start up. In addition, we dive into details like ground truth gathering, efficacy assessment, model approaches, feature engineering, anaphora resolution and more.

Mediware, a software provider catering to the health care industry, has retained investment bank William Blair for a sale of the company. The Deal's health care reporter Laura Cooper reported the news exclusively on Thursday. The Lenexa, KS-based company is projected to have Ebitda of more than $50 million and could attract a multiple between 8 to 9 times Ebitda. One banker noted that due to the hot health care technology space, it is possible Mediware could garner more than 10 times. The health care technology company was taken private by private equity firm Thoma Bravo in November 2012. At the time the deal came with a price tag of nearly $200 million, representing about 9 times trailing Ebitda, or $22 per share. William Blair acted as Mediware's financial adviser on the take-private.

Will the next great medical insight come from a clinical trial, a laboratory study — or a database search? Today, health systems and insurers have access to a mountain of data about millions of Americans: what medications they take, their health history, even, in some cases, their genetics—plus an emerging body of mobile health data. Using “big data” techniques, doctors and researchers are already mining this data to deliver better care and to gain insights into the kind of hyper-specific questions that clinical trials and observational studies struggle to answer. The approach promises major, rapid-fire, highly-personalized discoveries. At the same time, with the specter of cyberattacks and hacks looming, the need for rugged privacy protection has never been greater. In this Forum, experts in healthcare data and privacy will discuss the potential for future discovery, practical steps to enable progress, and how information can be kept secure. Part of the The Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forums, this event was presented jointly with HuffPost on Tuesday, December 5, 2017. Watch the entire series at ForumHSPH.org.

Facebook is being sued by HUD for running ads in a discriminatory manner. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Brooke Thomas, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. MORE TYT: https://tyt.com/trial Read more here: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/28/us/politics/facebook-housing-discrimination.html “WASHINGTON — The Department of Housing and Urban Development sued Facebook on Thursday for engaging in housing discrimination by allowing advertisers to restrict who is able to see ads on the platform based on characteristics like race, religion and national origin. In addition to targeting Facebook’s advertising practices, the housing department, known as HUD, claims in its lawsuit that the company uses its data-mining practices to determine which of its users are able to view housing-related ads. On both counts, the agency said, Facebook is in violation of the federal Fair Housing Act. “Facebook is discriminating against people based upon who they are and where they live,” Ben Carson, the housing secretary, said in a statement announcing the lawsuit. “Using a computer to limit a person’s housing choices can be just as discriminatory as slamming a door in someone’s face.” The lawsuit coincides with a broader push by civil rights groups to scrutinize whether big technology companies are reinforcing real-world biases online by using algorithms to identify and target specific groups of users. Facebook has drawn particular attention since it became clear that its ad-targeting technology, which helps marketers narrowly focus their efforts to reach potential customers, was among the Russian government’s primary tools for meddling in the 2016 presidential election by exploiting racial and other rifts in the United States.” Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Brooke Thomas Cast: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Brooke Thomas *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Child care costs vary from state to state, even county to county. But there is one common thread across the country – it's really expensive. Both parents and child care providers are struggling to make ends meet with the rising cost of child care. Raising a kid in America is expensive. The cost of child care has nearly tripled since 1990, which is more than the overall rate of inflation. The price families pay varies from state to state, even county to county. But in many places, it costs more to send a toddler to day care than it does to pay for housing, transportation or even college tuition. There is good reason child care is so expensive — it's a very involved, labor-driven industry. But the tension around the cost of child care in the U.S. really boils down to who foots the bill. In countries like Denmark and Sweden, the government covers much of the child care costs. In America, the costs are generally shouldered by parents and providers. Federal child care funding in the U.S. has been in a perpetual ebb and flow in response to cultural values. During World War II, the federal government came the closest it's ever been to having universal child care. Now, with the 2020 election coming up, some candidates are making it a priority. Watch the video above to learn about the history of child care in America and how rising costs are impacting families today. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC » Subscribe to CNBC TV: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBCtelevision » Subscribe to CNBC Classic: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBCclassic About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

Table of Contents Q&A 1:14:29 Should healthcare be more digitized? Absolutely. But if we go about it the wrong way... or the naïve way... we will take two steps forward and three steps back. Join Health Catalyst's President of Technology, Dale Sanders, for a 90-minute webinar in which he will describe the right way to go about the technical digitization of healthcare so that it increases the sense of humanity during the journey. The topics Dale covers include: • The human, empathetic components of healthcare’s digitization strategy • The AI-enabled healthcare encounter in the near future • Why the current digital approach to patient engagement will never be effective • The dramatic near-term potential of bio-integrated sensors • Role of the “Digitician” and patient data profiles • The technology and architecture of a modern digital platform • The role of AI vs. the role of traditional data analysis in healthcare • Reasons that home grown digital platforms will not scale, economically Most of the data that’s generated in healthcare is about administrative overhead of healthcare, not about the current state of patients’ well-being. On average, healthcare collects data about patients three times per year from which providers are expected to optimize diagnoses, treatments, predict health risks and cultivate long-term care plans. Where’s the data about patients’ health from the other 362 days per year? McKinsey ranks industries based on their Digital Quotient (DQ), which is derived from a cross product of three areas: Data Assets x Data Skills x Data Utilization. Healthcare ranks lower than all industries except mining. It’s time for healthcare to raise its Digital Quotient, however, it’s a delicate balance. The current “data-driven” strategy in healthcare is a train wreck, sucking the life out of clinicians’ sense of mastery, autonomy, and purpose. Healthcare’s digital strategy has largely ignored the digitization of patients’ state of health, but that’s changing, and the change will be revolutionary. Driven by bio-integrated sensors and affordable genomics, in the next five years, many patients will possess more data and AI-driven insights about their diagnosis and treatment options than healthcare systems, turning the existing dialogue with care providers on its head. It’s going to happen. Let’s make it happen the right way.

Worried about PRISM? It's merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the everyday surveillance of US citizens. From the NSA to the DHS, FBI, CIA, etc. Just about every government agency is monitoring US citizens under the guise of fighting "terrorism." 1984 is alive and well. 11 years later, who are fighting against? DHS has bought 1.6 billion hollow points. Citizens can be killed or imprisoned indefinitely with no reasoning given as to why. Everything we do is monitored and tracked without a warrant. Restrictions have been imposed on free speech. Drones are being deployed domestically with plans to have 30,000 of them in the next few years. Local police are being outfitted with military hardware including tanks. DHS has classified an enormous list of mundane activities that imply someone is a suspected terrorist. These range from paying with cash, to taking pictures, to using words on social media like help, watch, virus, wave, police, ice, and many, many more. In addition, DHS is also monitoring for anyone who speaks negatively about the government. They've continued trying to push SOPA like bills to censor the internet and protect corporations from liability for turning over all of your information. The Supreme Court is weighing in on whether silence can be considered evidence of guilt. The CIA director spoke of chips in everyday household appliances. The FBI recently completed a database designed to store everyone's biometric information. The NSA is currently building a similar database to be used to data mine and collect information on citizens. Fusion centers sift through data in a similar fashion and track citizens without warrants. More corporate run prisons are being built who encourage lawmakers to pass more restrictions so they can lock more people up for bigger profits. Federal agencies and police are also looking into Precrime technologies to apprehend people before they might commit a crime. The list goes on and on... With all of this technology, people are presumed guilty until proven innocent. There's is no denying that we are continually heading further and further into a surveillance/police state. It almost sounds like something out of 1984. But it's all very, very real. And none of it will change while the MSM provides little to no coverage of it. The only way it will change is by educating yourself and others and then taking action. United We Stand; Divided We Fall.

(June 6, 2013) - Ann Coulter did not object to the news about NSA phone snooping on principle, but does have a problem with it under this particular president. She told Sean Hannity tonight that under an "honorable administration," the government should be able to collect phone records, but said that President Obama, with all the other scandals that have come out, has proven to be untrustworthy and he cares more about "harassing Americans" and his political opponents than actually fighting terrorism. Coulter first commented on Eric Holder's involvement in the James Rosen snooping case, declaring the national security claims to be "nonsense." On the NSA collecting Americans' phone records, she made it clear that the NSA is just looking for patterns and not the content of phone calls, which is perfectly fine "under an honorable Democratic administration, if you can think of one." But Coulter said people just "can't trust" Obama at this point, because "they don't care about terrorism, they want to spy on their political enemies." She claimed that unlike the Bush administration, the current one does not take terrorism seriously, and prefers "harassing Americans" and their political opponents. Hannity brought up legal precedent establishing protections for the content of phone calls. Coulter decided that since this "unbelievably corrupt administration" can't be trusted with such personal information, she suggested Congress should pass a law preventing the government from accessing those records until January 2017. Hannity brought up the PRISM data-mining program exposed tonight by The Washington Post, though Coulter said she thinks the paper is "wrong." Hannity gave some rare words of praise to the New York Times for saying Obama has lost credibility. Coulter concluded, "You need a virtuous man in the presidency, so choose wisely next time, America."

Donald George, Chief Architect at PRISM Communication Systems, explained his company's approach to proactive in-home healthcare through monitoring, analysis, and visualization of data relating to both illnesses and patient behavior, with theCUBE co-hosts Dave Vellante and Paul Gillin, live at the MIT CDOIQ Symposium. "Data is the core issue" in healthcare, George said. Currently, "many of us connect in such a way, using our phones to connect to our physicians," which generates more data. That data brings about a challenge of data management in terms of how you make that data actionable. "We look at how to provide a total care system in the home, looking at the patient from a proactive view point so that we deliver the best possible healthcare." Healthcare takes to the cloud The healthcare industry is changing, making room for another care delivery system that does not require the physical requirements of brick and mortar erections. Smartphones are being used to check blood pressure and then transmit it to an intelligent platform. Patients "will see a visual graph of how your health is doing" over days or months. Based on this data visualization, care providers can take proactive measures. "No matter where you are in the world, access to doctors won't be a question in a while," George stated. Patients will be able to always get care no matter where they are. That care can by analyzed in terms of what is happening around a patient, lifestyle, things they should not do, their environment etc. When it comes to patients apprehension to having machines monitor them and decide for them, George said that in healthcare, the mindset is evolving in the right direction. In cardiology, small wearable devices, cardiac electronic devices, that track patients are already being widely used. The same progress should be made for "some of the less risk-averse aspects of care of chronic illness," such as diabetes. Diabetes is currently happening in "much younger individuals than we have seen before," obesity and sedentary lifestyles being part of the problem, George explains. A solution would be to "automatically get a small amount of blood, have a device check the blood sugar," deliver the data and the behavior of the patient, and have physicians act on it. Care for the illness & behavior proactively "Not all problems can be solved with a pill," George said. "You begin to take care of the whole patient — not just the illness, but also their behavior." In the case of diabetes, if there is a set of clinical guidelines for the patient and they stay on task, their progress can be monitored and help them have a better outcome. Asked what was the right solution to deal with the large amounts of data collected in healthcare, George said it was to stratify data. "We have to look at age, race, sex... things that would help you scope the health risk of a patient." It's also about checking what's evolving in the patient's environment. Understanding the disease and the effects of the environment and behavior helps provide a holistic care. "Data becomes the central point of triggering processes," and of automating clinical guidelines. PRISM brings "not only care, but better intervention," catching issues before they happens. "You want to make it visual, simplistic," and also engage the patient, George said. The cloud rolls in affordable healthcare Having and effective home delivery system helps save money as well. The greatest saving potential is in the follow-up process. Using telemonitoring for a patient to understand their trends, there no longer is a prolonged issue of having them come to a facility for follow-up. "We make the center of care our patient at the point of care," their home or another location, George explained. Devices means access to the patient, monitor, and provide care, instead of having them commuting between the home and clinic/hospital. Besides saving money, this method helps save time for physicians and nurses who can better allot their resources amongst patients. Data is the core: clean & secure "Data is the core," George reiterated. "We have to have information that's shareable between providers and teams of care providers. When we look at the central focus of where we are is making that data actionable, you need data that is clean, that we can drive over repeatable cycles." For the future, the company focuses on "predictive modeling that will help us better manage the patient care." While security in data access is and issue and breaches have fueled the public's fears, George pointed out that as the US transforms its healthcare system and brings about achievability with correct data," the matter of security concerns will be overcome. As an example, he chose the intervention of EMTs who can provide limited care due to a lack of medical history. "With sharing of data and the access to that data, you can see care be done right." @thecube #MITIQ

Paul told Hannity that President Obama is losing his "moral authority" in light of the recent scandals. "The other thing I think people don't like is hypocrisy," he added. Referring to the NSA's data mining program, the senator said, "[Obama] said he was going to protect our privacy, he said he would protect the Fourth Amendment, he appeared to care and he still sounds like does, but then he does the complete opposite." Watch the full interview to see what Sen. Paul had to say about upholding the Constitution and immigration reform.

CRCS Privacy and Security Lunch Seminar (Wednesday, May 13, 2009) Speaker: Bradley Malin Title: A Systems Approach to Data Privacy in the Biomedical Domain Abstract: The healthcare community has made considerable strides in the development and deployment of information systems, with particular gains in electronic health records and cheap genome sequencing technologies. Given the recent passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and the HITECH Act in particular, advancement and adoption of such systems is expected to grow at unprecedented rates. The quantity of patient-level data that will be generated is substantial and can enable more cost-effective care as well as support a host of secondary uses, such biomedical research and biosurveillance. At the same time, care must be taken to ensure that such records are accessed and shared without violating a patient's privacy rights. The construction and application of data privacy technologies in the biomedical domain is a complex endeavor and requires the resolution of often competing computational, organizational, regulatory, and scientific needs. In this talk, I will introduce how the Vanderbilt Health Information Privacy Laboratory builds and applies data privacy solutions to support various biomedical settings. Our solutions are rooted in computational formalisms, but are driven by real world requirements and, as such, draw upon various tools and techniques from a number of fields, including cryptography, databases and data mining, public policy, risk analysis, and statistics. Beyond a high-level overview, I will delve into recent research on how we are measuring and mitigating privacy risks when sharing patient-level data from electronic medical and genomic records from the Vanderbilt University Medical Center to local researchers and an emerging de-identified repository at the National Institutes of Health. Bio: Brad Malin is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics in the School of Medicine and an Assistant Professor of Computer Science in the School of Engineering at Vanderbilt University. He is the founder and director of the Vanderbilt Health Information Privacy Laboratory (HIPLab), which focuses on basic and applied research in a number of health-related areas, including primary care and secondary sharing of patient-specific clinical and genomic data. His research has received several awards of distinction from the American and International Medical Informatics Associations and the HIPLab is currently supported by grant funding from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and Veterans Health Administration. For the past several years, he has directed a data privacy research and consultation team for the Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) project, a consortium sponsored by the National Human Genome Research Institute. He has served as a program committee member and workshop chair for numerous conferences on data mining, privacy, and medical informatics. He has also edited several volumes for Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science, a special issue for the journal Data and Knowledge Engineering, and is currently on the editorial board of the journal Transactions on Data Privacy. He received a bachelor's in biology (2000), master's in knowledge discovery and data mining (2002), master's in public policy & management (2003), and a doctorate in computation, organizations & society (2006) from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.

Please join us for a lunchtime launch of an important new CSIS publication, A Greater Mekong Health Security Partnership, which argues there is a unique, time-sensitive opportunity for a targeted, major U.S. initiative to improve health security in the Greater Mekong Subregion. A U.S. push to strengthen partnerships with Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos -- to manage pandemic threats, control resistant malaria, and improve maternal and child health -- will advance both U.S. strategic interests and bring real health benefits to millions. It can be done if there is high-level U.S. leadership, better leveraging of the substantial civilian and military U.S. health engagement efforts already underway, and focused integration of the skills and expertise of Thailand and China. Welcoming remarks will be given by Dr. John Hamre, CSIS President and CEO. Keynote addresses will be given by Admiral William Fallon, U.S. Navy (retired) and Lieutenant General James Peake, U.S. Army (retired), who co-chaired this effort. These remarks will be followed by a roundtable discussion on how the United States can creatively and cooperatively utilize its health capacities and good will to strengthen partnerships and improve health security in South East Asia, which will be moderated by Dr. J. Stephen Morrison, Director of the Global Health Policy Center. Panelists will include Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Michael Fuchs; Rear Admiral Scott Dowell, U.S. Public Health Service, Director of the Division of Global Disease Detection & Emergency Response at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Dr. Bernard Nahlen, President's Malaria Initiative; and Rear Admiral Dave Smith, U.S. Navy (retired), Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Force Health Protection and Readiness.

Senator Rand Paul talks about how the Patriot Act has enabled the NSA to spy on every American without a warrant. The NSA's bulk collection of phone metadata was just recently ruled illegal by a federal appeals court. This is just one issue Edward Snowden released in 2013 of the US governments spying capabilities on American citizens. It was argued that the law was a clear violation of the constitution's Fourth Amendment, the right to privacy. #randpaul "I say that your phone records are yours, I say the phone records of law abiding citizens are none of their damn business. This is a monumental decision for all lovers of liberty. I commend the federal courts for upholding our constitution and protecting our fourth amendment rights. While this is a step in the right direction, it is now up to the Supreme Court to strike down the NSA's illegal spying program." Rand Paul Check out Rand Paul's BRAND NEW WEBSITE here▼ http://www.randpaul.com/ Follow Rand Paul on Instagram▼ http://instagram.com/drrandpaul/ Like Rand Paul on Facebook▼ http://www.facebook.com/RandPaul Follow Rand Paul on Twitter▼ http://twitter.com/RandPaul A Short Bio on Rand Paul Senator Rand Paul, M.D. is one of the nation’s leading advocates for liberty. Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, Dr. Paul has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility. As a fierce advocate against government overreach, Rand has fought tirelessly to return government to its limited, constitutional scope. A devoted husband and father, Dr. Paul and his family live in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where Rand owned his own ophthalmology practice and performed eye surgery for 18 years. As a hard-working and dedicated physician--not a career politician--Rand Paul came to Washington to shake things up and to make a difference. Dr. Paul has been married for 24 years to Kelley Ashby Paul of Russellville, Kentucky, and together, they have three sons: William, 21; Duncan, 18; and Robert, 15. He regularly volunteered to coach teams for each of his three sons in Little League baseball, soccer, and basketball. Rand and Kelley are both devout Christians and are active in their local church. Rand is the third of five children born to Carol and Ron Paul. He grew up in Lake Jackson, Texas and attended Baylor University. He graduated from Duke Medical School in 1988. Dr. Paul completed a general surgery internship at Georgia Baptist Medical Center in Atlanta and completed his residency in ophthalmology at Duke University Medical Center. Upon completion of his training in 1993, Rand and Kelley moved to Bowling Green to start their family and begin his ophthalmology practice. In 1995, Rand founded the Southern Kentucky Lions Eye Clinic, an organization that provides eye exams and surgery to needy families and individuals. Rand is a former president and 17 year member of Lions Clubs International, which is dedicated to preserving sight by providing eyeglasses and surgery to the less fortunate around the world. In recognition of his outstanding and sustained efforts to provide vision care to Kentuckians in need, Lions Clubs International has awarded Rand many of its highest commendations. A large part of Rand's daily work as an ophthalmologist was dedicated to preserving the vision of our seniors. In 2002, The Twilight Wish Foundation recognized Rand for Outstanding Service and Commitment to Seniors. Dr. Paul's entrance into politics is indicative of his life’s work as a surgeon: a desire to diagnose problems and provide practical solutions, whether it be in Bowling Green, Kentucky or Washington, D.C. Randal Howard "Rand" Paul (born January 7, 1963) is an American physician and politician from Kentucky. In office since 2011, Paul currently serves in the United States Senate as a member of the Republican Party. He is also a trained ophthalmologist, and is the middle son of former U.S. Representative and physician Ron Paul of Texas. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Paul attended Baylor University and is a graduate of the Duke University School of Medicine. Paul began practicing ophthalmology in 1993 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and established his own clinic in December 2007. Paul has been considered a supporter of the Tea Party movement, and a vocal critic of the Federal Reserve System. He has opposed NSA mass surveillance of Americans and supports reduced government spending and taxation. He describes himself as "100% pro-life" and has cosponsored legislation for equal protection of the right to life from conception. Paul officially announced his candidacy for the 2016 U.S. presidential election on April 7, 2015.

7/26/13 - The top story Friday afternoon on The Five was the renewed divide in the Republican Party between "conservative" New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and "libertarian" Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). The hosts took sides, expressing which wing of the party they believe should represent the future of the GOP. The debate came after harsh words flew back and forth between the two Republicans, with Christie calling Paul's libertarianism "dangerous" and Paul tweeting that Christie was only worried about the "dangers of freedom." "I think this rift is the best thing that's happened to the left and to President Obama," Greg Gutfeld said. He congratulated The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald for creating an atmosphere in which we have "one side accusing another of shredding the Constitution" and "the other side accusing them of being soft on terror." What gets lost, he said, is the middle ground of "reasonableness." Eric Bolling was perhaps less willing to embrace "reasonableness," saying, "the rule of law is now dangerous to Governor Christie. You lost a fan in me, sir." He added, "Let me get this straight. Rand Paul is dangerous but President Obama and 'Carlos Danger' are okay in your world right now?" He then talked extensively about his own experience surrounding the 9/11 attacks to explain his credentials when it comes to security. "I think I have an idea of what terrorism looks like, and it is not innocent Americans being data mined by the NSA," Bolling said. "It is Islamic terrorists." He confirmed that after these latest comments, he's "done with" Christie for good. Gutfeld fought back against Bolling's comments, saying, "Christie was talking specifically about data mining, and the fact is to find a needle, you need a haystack. The problem with Rand Paul is that he thinks the needles just show up." "Why can't it be both?" Andrea Tantaros asked. She said ideally she would want someone like Christie who "wants every good tool at their fingertips to prosecute terrorists" and someone like Paul who wants to "have a debate about civil liberties in the era of Obama." Ultimately, Bolling rejected the conservative vs. libertarian narrative, arguing that "Rand Paul is conservative and libertarian and I think Chris Christie has lost his conservative cred over this." "I don't think you can say Chris Christie lost his conservative credentials," Tantaros responded, pointing to "incredible" record as a U.S. attorney. If the hosts could agree on anything it was that infighting between potential GOP presidential candidates this far out from 2016 cannot be good for Republicans. As Bolling put it, "Chris Christie going there was a big mistake. They need to be uniting."

After the attacks, at the request of the White House, Hayden intensified and expanded NSA wiretapping operations of various communications between Americans and terrorist suspects abroad in hopes of detecting and preventing another terrorist attack. These initial efforts were executed without a court order and after being revealed by The New York Times, were subsequently placed under judicial review. Over time, the NSA’s efforts grew into the multidimensional programs exposed by Edward Snowden, including the collection and storage of phone and email metadata covering billions of calls and messages between American citizens. In conversation with Amy Zegart, General Hayden provides an insider’s account about the origins and development of the NSA programs. He discusses the directives and mechanisms to control them, and the disagreements within the Bush administration about the extent of the wiretapping. He offers his views on the justification, legal status, scale, and effectiveness of the NSA monitoring.

How does law enforcement use data to prevent fraud? Kelly Tshibaka, Chief Data Officer of the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General, and Caryl Brzymialkiewicz, Assistant Inspector General & Chief Data Officer at U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, speak with CXOTalk about how different agencies at the Office of Inspector General use data analytics. For more information, see https://www.cxotalk.com/episode/fraud-prevention-data-analytics-law-enforcement Since 2015, Tshibaka has served as Chief Data Officer in the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General (OIG), where data analytics has resulted in more than $920 million in financial impact or audit findings in FY16. She previously served as the Acting Inspector General of the Federal Trade Commission, worked in the Office of the Director for National Intelligence (ODNI), and served as the Special Assistant to the Department of Justice Inspector General. As the first Chief Data Officer for the OIG within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Brzymialkiewicz is focused on providing more and better access to data and analytics; accelerate analytics for use in audits, investigations, evaluations, and compliance oversight; and enhance OIG’s use of data to make more informed decisions. She previously served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Risk and Decision Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). She also previously served as the Operations Research Division Chief at the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization, and led a team of analysts at the Center for Naval Analyses. From the transcript: Michael Krigsman: (05:01) And, Caryl, can you maybe elaborate on this, because I think it’s a very interesting point. So, you report to two separate people in order to ensure that as an inspector general, or working in the office of the inspector general, that you maintain independence. That’s very important. Could you elaborate on that point, please? Caryl Brzymialkiewicz: (05:23) Yes. Absolutely. So, for our organization, for example, health and human services is a trillion-dollar portfolio. So, our responsibility is to provide oversight for the agency. Think about centers for Medicaid, Medicare, think about the Center for Disease Control, the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health, and many, many other agencies. But, that duel-reporting structure really allows for, as Kelly mentioned, that the independence… We want to give the information, first and foremost, to the agency to help make the agency better but we also know that there’s a lot of things that Congress is expecting us to make sure we’re using the dollars as most effectively as we can. (05:59) One thing I will say, too, that’s interesting about the law enforcement angle that you mentioned, we’re not just trying to knock on doors within the agency and figure out where people may or may not be filing the right paperwork, if you will. Really, what we’re trying to do is protect the integrity of the programs to make sure that the beneficiaries of those programs are getting what they need, and to make sure that outside entities aren’t… You know, when we think about fraud, the outside entities aren’t taking advantage of the programs as well. So, it’s not just an internal focus, it’s not supposed to be a “Gotcha!” moment. Kelly Tshibaka: (15:40) We start with the business question. What am I trying to answer? So, like, to give you an example, we wanted to find out, in the data that we have and the information we have, can we put together any trends or any ideas about how to solve this question? And interestingly, just another shout-out, like Caryl was saying for agents, we can't do our data analytics job without a business understanding of what's going on. So, we have to partner closely with the agents and want the auditors to understand how data are collected, what it's used for, how they understand it. Because, once we understand a little bit more than their business and what they're trying to do, then we can work with the data. Our teams can work with the data in order to figure out how to best use the data and look through it in order to answer those business questions so we get business understanding from our auditors and our agents and oftentimes, even from the people in the agencies that we oversee. (17:08) So, to answer your question specifically, Michael, we pull it from the agency, but we also pull it from other agencies if we need it. We’ll pull it from private companies if we need it, and if we can get it. You’ll be surprised what’s even just publicly available on the internet that we can pull and if we can get it into a usable format, then it makes it a lot easier for us to work with it and come up with insights that people can take action on.

Recorded on January 17, 2019. Can a sitting president be indicted? What emergency powers does President Trump have to build a border wall and stop the government shutdown? Richard Epstein and John Yoo sit down with Peter Robinson to answer these legal questions and more regarding the constitutional powers of the presidency, the state of the Supreme Court, the Mueller investigation, and the legality (or lack thereof) of indicting a sitting president. As the country continues to deal with a partial government shutdown, Epstein and Yoo address the shutdown, the likelihood of its coming to a timely end, and what kind of bipartisan compromise could end it. Yoo suggests that one potential outcome would be that Democrats require the legalized status of DREAMers in exchange for border-wall funding. Epstein argues that President Trump will have to cave if services like TSA screening begin to shut down from lack of funding. They both agree that the longer the shutdown goes on, the more likely citizens are to get increasingly frustrated with both parties, regardless of the moral stances the party leaders are taking. For what and when can a president declare a national emergency? Epstein and Yoo dive into the history of national emergencies and presidential emergency powers. They discuss which presidents have declared national emergencies in the past and for what reasons, who has the standing to stop a national emergency, and the fact that no court has ever reversed a national emergency. (In 1952, during the Korean War, President Truman issued Executive Order 10340, which ordered US steel mills to operate despite a nationwide strike because Truman wanted to keep materiel flowing to the front. The court concluded that seizing the mills was a legislative act that could only be authorized by Congress.) Epstein and Yoo discuss William Barr, President Trump’s newly appointed attorney general, and his congressional-hearing questions about the Mueller investigation. They discuss Barr’s legal background, his personal relationship with Mueller, and the likelihood that he would fire Mueller if asked to. Yoo argues that the best course of action for the Mueller investigation is to allow Mueller to clear Trump of any wrongdoing, which would put a stop to any Democrats’ arguments to the contrary.
