SHADE Newsletter 8th February 2024

Welcome to the sixth 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 Critical Data Centre Studies. We look at the latest on AI funding and regulation in the US and UK, examine the challenges in deciding who should benefit from the climate loss and damage fund, look at which hospitals are at risk from climate change, learn about relational footprinting, explore ways to assess algorithms… and much more.  We hope you enjoy it!
