It's far from clear what the UK's immigration policy will look like post-Brexit, but it's almost certain that stricter controls will come into force in the not-too-distant future. There's been much talk in the news recently about how changes to immigration policy can affect the technology sector, with leading tech figures in the US penning a letter to president Trump about the impact of his travel ban on the industry there. Now The Royal Society, the UK's national academy of science, has released a report looking at what these uncertain times might mean for the machine learning industry in the UK, and what steps need to be taken to ensure we remain a world leader in this field. Put simply, machine learning is a process by which a computer can learn to complete a task by looking at previously entered data, rather than by being given a specific set of instructions.

The recent consultation also included a question on the type of discretionary support they would find most useful and we remain keen to ensure fairness of support between beneficiaries, work between beneficiaries based on need and individual circumstances. We have had consultation submissions but had to consider those over the period and cannot make decisions until after that. I just wanted to make those points before turning to the right Honourable gentleman's point about the further enquiry. As he will know from a number of previous debates on this issue the government has been clear debates on this issue the government.

This is a new world with new challenges, Wynne said. From technology to [President Donald] Trump, it is a time of greater uncertainty and change. Universal basic income, a form of social security that provides unconditional financial support from the government to all residents of a country or region, has recently gained traction as a solution to poverty, homelessness, and low quality of life. Similar pilot programs are on the way around the world, from Finland to Kenya. According to the Globe and Mail , a separate basic income plan for First Nations communities will be introduced later this year.

Enlarge / One of the earliest self-driving trial families pose with Waymo's minivan. (credit: Waymo) WaymoAlphabet's self-driving car division—is launching a "trial" of a self-driving taxi service in the Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area. The Google spinoff's fleet of self-driving cars is descending on Phoenix and offering free rides to anyone in its "early rider program," which is currently accepting new members . The taxi service is not totally "self-driving." Waymo notes that "as part of this early trial, there will be a test driver in each vehicle monitoring the rides at all times." While the car will handle most of the driving duties, a driver will ensure nothing goes wrong if the car runs into a situation it can't handle. While the trial will offer free rides to Phoenix residents, it will also serve as a research program for Waymo. The company's blog post say it wants to "learn things like where people want to go in a self-driving car, how they communicate with our vehicles, and what information and controls they want to see inside.

So when we can't get enough time for that role, for that scrutiny role, we need to ensure measures are not simply pushed through willy-nilly. I don't think they have been in that regard.

Published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism , the study is believed to be the first to investigate gene-hormone therapy interaction on fracture in postmenopausal white women and uses the largest set of known genes linked to fracture risk from a meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies. Researchers looked at a subset of 9,922 women from among the more than 27,000 who had participated in WHI hormone therapy clinical trials. They wondered whether women who are more genetically susceptible to fractures could benefit from hormone therapy. This is important because, as previous WHI studies have identified, there are risks and benefits with hormone therapy, Ochs-Balcom says. This is where precision or personalized medicine comes in—the attempt to get the right drugs to the right person to ensure the most benefit and least harm.

Let me assure all that this is an ongoing exercise. Indeed, we view much of Asia, Africa and the Middle East as the emerging growth centres for Malaysian palm oil. Several marketing and promotional efforts are in place with the aim that in the longer term these could emerge as more important markets than Europe. These markets are, however, fraught with a myriad of peculiar challenges and require specially tailored initiatives if we are to succeed. Luckily, the Malaysian palm oil industry is blessed with dynamic and dedicated leadership starting all the way at the top with the minister himself, the ministry officials and its various palm oil agencies. This network makes for a strong fighting force that has one goal only – ensure the long-term sustainability and continued profitability of the palm oil industry so that the nearly 4 million dependants in our society continue to reap the benefits.
