this is bbc news. the headlines: awarof a war of words has broken out between london and moscow after the british foreign secretary said it was overwhelmingly likely that vladimir putin personally took the decision to use a nerve agent on the former russian spy and his daughter. the kremlin says the accusations are unforgivable. aid agencies in syria say over 50,000 people have fled the rebel—held areas of eastern ghouta, in the last few days alone. dozens of buses are heading towards shelters for the displaced, to help with the exodus. earlier a turkish air strike hit a major hospital in afrin, killing nine people. south africa's former president, jacob zuma, has been charged with corruption — a month after he was forced from office. mr zuma denies the sixteen charges which relate to a multi—billion—dollar arms deal completed in the 1990s. the french arms manufacturer thales has also been charged. the father of a female engineering student allegedly attacked

robot at the bottom of his garden and he wants to teach it to mow the lawn. artificial intelligence. everyone is talking about it. over the years we have seen a developer. we have seen it evolve. this is the watson that won jeopardy. we we have seen it evolve. this is the watson that wonjeopardy. we have travelled the world to see ai ever tries to treat cancer. it studies of millions, tens of millions of exa m ples millions, tens of millions of examples from the assemblage of scientific literature. predict crime. understand the economy. chamois companies with revenue between $25 million and $60 million.

revolution is coming. the biggest difference between us and the industrial revolution in the 1800s if the speed. millions of workers are on the move. so what is going on? whatjobs are really at risk? what is the future of work? and we start with healthcare workers. for almost 70 years, the uk's a national health service has been a free service at the point of care. that model is under strain as the population ages and chronic health and conditions increase while resources shrink. a recent study showed that almost two thirds of doctors think that patient safety has deteriorated with one dog to say in we are not robots. we are human staff needs. should be nhs turned to robots to ease the strain on human

staff? jane has been looking at how data driven technology could transform care in the nhs. good artificial intelligence help save the nhs? more people are looking at innovative ways to ease the workload of doctors and nurses. computer programmes can rapidly analyse huge quantities of information in ways that humans do not have the time nor brain capacity to do. in 2016, google's the mind was developing an algorithm to identify abnormalities in eye scans. now it has submitted its findings to a medicaljournal for review. it could mean its systems a re for review. it could mean its systems are more effective than humans at diagnosing eye disease. deep mined taught its machine learning software using a million eye scans. i will see three other projects integrating ai and data gathering. dementia is now the
1:38 am
leading cause of death in the uk. at this hospital in carpentry, software is being tested to remotely monitor patients. this is one of the rooms on the ward. it looks at any other hospital room except in this one there are two infrared illuminators and a sensor monitoring my movements including when i'm asleep. 0xy health uses a standard digital camera and a tongue twisting science. everytime your heartbeat is your skin briefly flashes red. we can not see this but the sensor in the camera can detect these so—called micro— blushers. it even picks up my vital signs when i am hiding under a table in the room as those micro— blushers can still be seen on my arm. there is an alert if i leave my bed. and the nurse can click on a live feed to see what is happening and determine whether they

need to come and check on me right away. for the staff, initially, when it looked like we had a camera in a box ina it looked like we had a camera in a box in a room they were not happy about it. but when we spent some time with 0xy house, they explained to them and they see how it works, they love it. they love the fact it gives you an extra... and extra support. the project is in the pilot stage in is awaiting medical certification. the data collected is being analysed remotely by a team in 0xford being analysed remotely by a team in oxford and will be used to train the programme to be more predictive. we have never had these capabilities as a species, to constantly get our rate reading and routine data. there is no reason as we combine and with use the data using a i we cannot detect the onset of dementia or read getting worse. we can detect problems early so you can stay in your own home or a comfortable setting without coming into hospital. that will save a huge amount of time. saving critical time was the motivation behind automating

processes at nhs blood and transplant. a500 people receive a transplant. a500 people receive a transplant each year but 6500 are on the list. everyday, three people die waiting for a transplant. a lot of information needs to be sifted through to make life—and—death decisions. the nhs is now using public cloud technology from ibm to help maintain huge databases that used to be managed with a marker and a whiteboard. by working with some of this automated technology we can make sure we are making the best possible decisions and that our clinical teams are thinking through the best outcomes for all of the patients on the waiting list, and that our staff, who are often working until three in the morning ina working until three in the morning in a high—pressure environment, needing to allocate organs quickly, they are supported by this technology. collecting all this personal data has led some to ask if it is stored securely enough. at the challenges have in the public sector is the perception that maybe the public is less secure than an on
1:41 am
premises data centre which is not the case. we have an obligation, obviously, to many customers to ensure that the public cloud is kept secure and patched and maintained effectively. the fallout from it not being in that condition is quite severe. in the future, the team hopes that artificial intelligence will be able to predict how long people will be on the waiting list foran people will be on the waiting list for an organ. there is an average waiting time of two weeks to see a doctor in the uk. disk and drop to two hours if you register with agp at hand. you can sign up if you live or work within certain zones of london. you need to give up your regular prat doctor and register with the remote surgery. 26,000 people have registered so far. i had a chance to test it out, pretending i had a chance to test it out, pretending ihada a chance to test it out, pretending i had a case of food poisoning. first i went through a triage with a chat bot on an app who recommended i speak remotely to a real—life

doctor. the doctor recommends further care and can even send a prescription to a pharmacy. the artificial intelligence in the app draws on union of data points and can draws on union of data points and ca n cross draws on union of data points and can cross referenced the latest medical research from journals and studies around the world. you use artificial intelligence to tell you whether or not to see a doctor. you are always free to see a doctor a nyway are always free to see a doctor anyway but what we find is that a0% of the people who are reassured that they have everything they need, based at there. the app has faced witticism from the royal college of gps to say that younger users are being cherry picked for the service. nhs england lodged a formal objection to the plan out —— rollout beyond london. i have think we need to give people safe and equitable care. if we roll things out too quickly without ensuring that safety and fairness with ryan the risk of
1:43 am
causing unintended harm. so it is wise and sensible but independent evaluation is now going on of these new technologies so that people can be reassured that they are safe and they are fine for everybody. be reassured that they are safe and they are fine for everybodylj be reassured that they are safe and they are fine for everybody. i think it is wrong. i genuinely think that it is wrong. i genuinely think that it is wrong. i genuinely think that it isjust not right. i cannot understand why people are hesitant. often it is because they are scared of new technology. they do not know what the consequences are. and that is fine. they need to check that and reassure them self. there is nothing wrong with that. i have seen three ways companies are working with data to help with monitoring, automation and decreasing waiting times. all areas that could help an overstressed health service. could artificial intelligence helped to save the nhs? it is an exciting development worldwide but never more so then here and there are certainly things ai can help as we to plough through data we already have, and
1:44 am
the questions we didn't even know needed answering. but let's be clear, a12 will never replace person—to—person interaction. the touch of a doctor, the looking deep into someone's eyes and recognising that the make—up of the person is what matters, not just that the make—up of the person is what matters, notjust a bleeding leg or a headache. it is much more than that and it will be quite a long time for a match creatures that. you think it ever will? i will be stunned if win —— within my lifetime ai2 ever replaces doctor. that was jen and that wasjen and although we are seeing automation creep in to the skilled workforce, we often think of it as working in the low skilled sector where the jobs are repetitive. but what about bases in the world where they still have a ready supply of relatively low skilled at cheap human workers? you would expect countries like china for example to be able to hold back
