The Guardian view on AI in the NHS: a good servant, when it’s not a bad master | Editorial
The NHS collects vast amounts of data. It must be used in imaginative ways that respect privacy and make life better for patients and health workersTechnology helps us live better and for longer; in fact it has been doing so since the birth of modern medicine. And as each new technology comes into use, it turns out to have medical uses, even though these are not always the ones that are sold hardest: in the 1920s the American press was full of advertisements for the health benefits of radium, which was then a mysterious and powerful substance just as artificial intelligence (AI) is today.

How fame took its toll on Dennis Price
My house is full of film books. I suspect several hundred but I lost count. It provides me with my own research library and I am always adding to the collection.
