SHADE Newsletter 7th March 2024

Welcome to the eighth edition of the SHADE newsletter! 

SHADE is a research hub with a mission to explore issues at the intersection of digital technologies/AI, health and the environment. It is guided by a fundamental question: How should the balance between AI/digital enabled health and planetary health be struck in different areas of the world, and what should be the guiding principles?

The SHADE newsletter comes out every two weeks, bringing you a selection of the latest news, upcoming events, academic publications and podcasts in the SHADE space.

In this newsletter, we highlight recent studies on the health impacts of climate change. We get the latest on the ongoing revolutions in genomics, look at proposed AI governance models, listen to healthcare institutions around the world talk about what they are doing to address climate change, find out about about sustainability in open source software and in the private sector, discover a surprising win for AI over the human in carbon emissions and much more.  We hope you enjoy it!
