RE: The Ethical Threat of Artificial Intelligence in Practice
@piya Diverse data are needed to train the algorithm to have relevant results. What's more, for machine learning to be truly valuable, a whole lot of data, usually from several sources, is needed, and that means that data need to be released out into the wild. And there's no data scientist willing to guarantee that it's safe once it's out there. Bias in the data can have damaging consequences. What algorithms today are really good at doing is predicting trends, he explained. But if you input data that are biased, your output will also inherently be biased.

RE: How to enhance mental stability?
@alaap There are many different things you can do to improve your mental health, including:
Staying positive. It's important to try to have a positive outlook; some ways to do that include
Finding balance between positive and negative emotions. Staying positive doesn't mean that you never feel negative emotions, such as sadness or anger. You need to feel them so that you can move through difficult situations. They can help you to respond to a problem. But you don't want those emotions to take over. For example, it's not helpful to keep thinking about bad things that happened in the past or worry too much about the future.
Trying to hold on to the positive emotions when you have them
Taking a break from negative information. Know when to stop watching or reading the news. Use social media to reach out for support and feel connected to others but be careful. Don't fall for rumors, get into arguments, or negatively compare your life to others.
Practicing gratitude, which means being thankful for the good things in your life. It's helpful to do this every day, either by thinking about what you are grateful for or writing it down in a journal. These can be big things, such as the support you have from loved ones, or little things, such as enjoying a nice meal. It's important to allow yourself a moment to enjoy that you had the positive experience. Practicing gratitude can help you to see your life differently. For example, when you are stressed, you may not notice that there are also moments when you have some positive emotions. Gratitude can help you to recognize them.

Cow dung is an indigestible plant material from the intestine of cow released on to the ground. Generally, faeces, either from an animal or human is not a desired topic of conversation.
