Reuters highlighted research by Seth Seabury of the Keck School of Medicine of USC on the lack of follow-up care for patients with mild brain injuries.

The Atlantic published an analysis by Annette Kim of the USC Price School on how computer analysis of satellite images for developing cities will often overlook urban communities and harm city's poorest residents by inadequately distributing public services. "When smart-city institutions rely on computer algorithms to expedite their work, they can embed unintended bias into municipal operations, resulting in things like racially biased criminal sentencing, information searching, and financial access," she wrote. By tracking informal urbanization, cities can better prepare these regions for disasters and include them within the scope of transportation and infrastructure development.
