But under the hood lurks a dangerous secret. Jaques Reifman, SES and Director for the Biotechnology High Performance Computing Software Applications Institute BHSAI. The app includes a visual reaction time PVT test, which is the gold standard for estimating cognitive performance. Hartman during the 3 September virtual ceremony. Or, you know, do I need to get into a more regular pattern? Researchers observed how their lack of sleep affected alertness and performance and how much caffeine influenced this. Like it shows that as you were saying over the course of multiple days of not getting sufficient sleep, you will get progressively worse. Or what was really interesting as we saw that over time, the more days that you kind of go with sleep deprivation, it shows gradually how your response time degrades. Show Notes on Apple Credit Card Apple recently decided to offer a branded Apple credit card in conjunction with Goldman Sachs. So what they found is they can improve alertness by 64% while consuming the same total amount of caffeine or alternatively a subject could reduce caffeine consumption by up to 65% and still achieve equivalent improvements in alertness. Reifman accepted the Certificates of Recognition on behalf of both Dr. Lexy: This has been Lexy Kassan Marie: and Marie Weber. They prepare themselves with academics, standardized tests, extracurricular activities, and a host of research as to the best fit for their interests. So when it comes to people that are in the military, they usually have more physical activity in terms of their normal job requirements versus what maybe a civilian would normally have. So how could that caffeine help reduce their impairment versus just being sleep deprived and struggling through it? But to really get the most from the tool, the researchers advise eating the right amount at the right time too. And I think if anything, this is a prescription… This shows that how important sleep is. The Army has plans to While this caffeine algorithm is still not available for civilians, a less personalized using the new algorithm is available now.

An intuitive graphical user interface allows the user and, if desired, others such as a supervisor or safety officer, to view predicted cognitive performance levels at desired future times. If sleep, alertness and performance enhancement technologies matter to you, contact licensing agent. Past and current performance are measured using a psychomotor vigilance task PVT test for accurate, objective assessment. Results: The 2B-Alert Web tool allows users to obtain predictions for mean response time, mean reciprocal response time, and number of lapses. In a study published in the , Department of Defense researcher Jaques Reifman described how a new algorithm can inform anyone about the best amount of caffeine to take at the right time. If you have, please like and subscribe via your favorite podcast App. You can help by signing up to at datascienceethics. So it could also help you determine like, do I have enough sleep banked where I can kind of skimp on hours for this night and be okay? A differentiator between our take on this and that most commonly conveyed is the distinction between the two terms. The schedules and corresponding predicted outputs can be saved as a Microsoft Excel file; the corresponding plots can be saved as an image file. Keywords: PVT; biomathematical model; caffeine model; prediction tool; sleep schedule. Definitely look at all the research, definitely do your homework. Show Notes on Tay Bot Tay Bot was a very short-lived chat AI. The algorithm is not only meant to help you become more aware of how much caffeine you're drinking but can also. Vital-Lopez, a Research Scientist and support contractor for the Henry M. Lexy: Having access to these tools and without it being a supervised kind of medically-warranted assessment is a little bit dangerous. This article was published in the January 2021 issue of the. Original research paper publication from the Journal of Sleep Research detailing the study and its conclusions. He then recorded their sleep and caffeine intake data since caffeine affects everyone differently. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, Fort Detrick, MD. This tool could also help you see how to do that with maybe a more regular sleep schedule or with maybe being able to incorporate naps into your schedule. Lexy: Wait, so, so you mean to tell me the caffeine works like a drug and that over time if you continue to use it, you may need more of it to get the same effect? This is very interesting stuff. The figure shows the Sleep Restriction + Caffeine schedule. Marie: And the next time you have a caffeinated beverage you can think of us. I mean the human body is a complex system. Music for this podcast is by DJ Shahmoney. Lexy: Because of course we did and we had some really interesting conclusions coming out of our experimentation with this tool and of course some questions. Potential applications include student exam preparation, scheduling for the transportation industry truckers, air traffic controllers, pilots, etc. Too much caffeine taken too often may also lead to caffeine addiction. However, Reifman said his research may soon give us an app that tells the perfect time and dose to get the most benefit. This is the first foray into consumer credit cards for both companies and all did not go according to plan. The article that we are going to link this time is a study that was conducted by the U s army to try to identify an algorithm that could predict the optimal quantity and timing of caffeine for service men and women to stay at their peak alertness despite their lack of sleep. According to the , about 400 milligrams of caffeine per day should be safe for most healthy adults. Langer, a science journalist, genetic factors determine our reaction to caffeine. Lexy: The first thing to note is if you do try this tool, the alertness level that it shows you is actually an alertness impairment and it compares your alertness impairment to a blood alcohol content of 0. This is the amount of caffeine in about four cups of coffee. The most recent innovations from our partners are featured separately and organized by category. This evidence-based tool can be used as a decision aid to design effective work schedules, guide the design of future sleep restriction and caffeine studies, and increase public awareness of the effects of sleep amounts, time of day, and caffeine on alertness. This podcast is copyright Alexis Kassan. The other is to predict your optimal caffeine intake in order to maintain peak awareness levels. Marie: He went through big withdrawals. So if you pass that line, you basically are acting as impaired as if you had been consuming alcohol. Find him on or as DJShahMoneyBeatz. Army has found a way that researchers say can help you discover the dose you need to maintain peak alertness. According to Reifman, a high-performance biotechnology software researcher for the U. Marie: We should all adopt this great Spanish tradition. Now, the 2B-Alert tool has been released in a web application accessible to the public. The tool is essentially a bio-mathematical model that uses AI to automatically learn how an individual responds to sleep deprivation — that is, less than seven to eight hours of sleep per night — and then provides countermeasure recommendations customized for that specific individual to reduce or eliminate cognitive deficits caused by that very sleep deprivation. They do have the ability to predict the impairment level if you are not sleep deprived. Their age is usually going to be lower versus what maybe an average civilian is going to be. Methods: We combined our validated Unified Model of Performance and our validated caffeine model to form a single, integrated modeling framework instantiated as a Web-enabled tool. In some cases, study participants had to stay awake for up to 60 hours and their regular sleeping time was severely shortened. Sleep loss impairs alertness and cognitive performance. Podcast: Subscribe: Show Notes on 2B-Alert The US Army commissioned a study to find the optimal amount and timing of caffeine consumption for soldiers to maintain peak alertness. So there is a tool in there where you can assign when you want to be awake and it will tell you when and how much caffeine to drink Marie: when you want to be most alert.

The only factors that this tool takes into consideration is the amount and timing of your sleep and the amount of caffeine that you consume. Marie: And so this just goes back to how the algorithm was trained in the population that they were training on. Chances are that the data science team building these widely-impactful models are not, themselves, large enough to represent so big a swath of the population. Marie: And another thing that Lexy was thinking about as she was looking at her examples is that she knows that she needs caffeine because otherwise what happens, Lexy? The user can also query the tool for recommendations that lead to heightened alertness during a specific time of the day, such as during a test or military activities requiring increased vigilance. Reifman had study participants perform psychomotor vigilance tasks. And what we found is that each of us had our own times when we were at or above that level of impairment Marie: just because of sleep schedules, work schedules, dogs, schedules, travel schedules… Lexy: Yep. You can help us deliver more and better content. However, none of the existing computational tools is publicly available, and the commercially available tools do not account for the beneficial effects of caffeine on performance, limiting their practical utility. They are given a different balance of nutrients. But then if you get a good long nights rest, your impairment drops considerably. And certainly has an impact here.

And apparently they also have access to something called military energy gum. They are given specific types of nutrients. If you put it in your caffeine, obviously it shows a decrease temporarily. Lexy: Headaches and a lot of grumpiness. The research team then developed the Open Access tool 2B-Alert Web 2. Marie: So there are different ways that people deal with their caffeine consumption. Lexy: Hello everyone and welcome back to the data science ethics podcast. So those are things to keep in mind as you look at this tool that this could be skewed a little bit towards certain populations. The Certificate of Achievement was signed by our Commanding General, BG Michael J. Most people are not usually exposed to such unnatural sleeping patterns and a bad night's sleep can always be cured with some rest the following day. His algorithm then calculated the ideal dosage strategy for each person, depending on that information. Should expectations be adjusted? For each plot line, discontinuities represent sleep periods. More than this amount could lead to a caffeine overdose. But this particular study was aimed at a different target group: it was conducted with US soldiers, whose job, more often than not, requires them to perform their best on little sleep. As enjoyable as that morning cup can be, excess caffeine consumption can extract a price later on. And then he goes back to caffeine and he can drink a red bull and actually has an effect for him. I need to get through these four years of college. He says it will tell you the best dose regardless. And of course because they did this based on the military, we have a lot of questions as to how applicable it is. I have never been more proud of my tax dollars in all my life. What they did is they studied the timing and the quantity of caffeine across a range of beverages to determine the impairment level of those consuming it.
