The mass average can be important in evaluating the risks of radiotherapy treatments, since they are designed to target very specific volumes in the body, typically a tumour. For example, if 10% of a patient's bone marrow mass is irradiated with 10 Gy of radiation locally, then the absorbed dose in bone marrow overall would be 1 Gy. Bone marrow makes up 4% of the body mass, so the whole-body absorbed dose would be Gy. The first figure (10 Gy) is indicative of the local effects on the tumour, while the second and third figure (1 Gy and Gy) are better indicators of the overall health effects on the whole organism. Additional dosimetry calculations would have to be performed on these figures to arrive at a meaningful effective dose, which is needed to estimate the risk of cancer or other stochastic effects.
Heavy hitters like DeepMind, Google, Airbnb, JPMorgan, and Intel have all descended on NIPS and are pulling out all the stops to attract the top talent. There are private parties (including the one seen above, featuring rapper Flo Rida), robot mascot costumes, and piles of free swag. As Chris Rice, head of global talent acquisition for Intel’s AI product group, told Bloomberg , “With talent this scarce, it can be hard to find people. You’ve got to reach out to people at events like this. This is the biggest event for AI for the year, so you have to be here.”
