I will now proceed to go on a #tweetrant / #tweetorial with regards to #Pharmaceutical #biotech pricing (focus on #cancer).

Very timely, also see @WSJ wsj.com/articles/big-p… on price hikes.

For the record, no #COI / #FCOI. Feel free to contribute to this discussion.
Lets look at the problem from the @PhRMA / business perspective. And lets suppose you are a wonderful company, started by wonderful people who just want to make the world a better place (I know, not real, but stay with me for a minute).
You start with a great idea / or pipeline platform and start selling this concept to #VC #VentureCapital, and lets assume that this is actually a really good idea. What is the needed return on investment to make this worth while. A: further R&D must exceed the cost of capital.

1) Electrical grid under attack?

You are watching a movie.
Let’s sit down and break it down.
This and other hypotheses and events.

It’s coffee time.
December 29, 2018.
2) There will be some intermittent pauses as I get set up and also research stuff.
3) If there is a silent civil war going on right now, the war has gone hot.

So my goal this morning is to pause and describe how we got here.

Observations, experiences, hypotheses + recent research.

To arrive at an educated guess as to what's next.

The @IAF_MCC will need to retire 11 MIG sqdns by 2030 or around 198 jets , another 200 jets retire ~2035. We need to replace 400jets to maintain current lvls by 2035. For 42 sqdns add 200 jets . @RahulGandhi pls can you tell us how you'll cover that with @HALHQBLR 1/n #Rafale
The NDA plan is to have @HALHQBLR build at least 250 #LCA variants in three lines ( two lines funded by #Modi ) with each line building 8jets/annum starting 2020.
Another 350 #aircraft will have to come from 1-2 other privately owned firms or be imported. 2/n
If we kill private #military #aircraft #manufacturing today we will have to import ~300 jets in the next 10-15 yrs which will cost #India anything between 45-60$bn . Each 1$bn invested creates at least 6000 jobs today , this import alone will cost us 360,000 jobs 3/n

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/…
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n
