This research tentatively suggests that one option for increasing the use of algorithms is to give people constrained ability to intervene. In the same way that NASA gave the first astronauts limited control, with sometimes poor but thankfully not disastrous outcomes, we can allow people to tweak the output of the algorithm.

Surveys on attitudes about self-driving cars suggest an opportunity of this nature. While over three quarters of Americans are afraid to ride in a self-driving vehicle, the majority stated that they want some automation in their next vehicle. It is a degree of control they want, not complete control. How constrained could this control be? A big red stop button on the dash of the new self-driving car? And does that button have to be connected to anything?

Another study by Dietvorst ( working paper ) suggests a different strategy—changing what the decision maker perceives to be the default. When experimental subjects were asked what they would require to shift from their own judgement to that of the algorithm, they tended to assess the accuracy of the algorithm against the bonus threshold they were trying to meet, not against the weaker performance of their own judgement. However, when the algorithm was the default and they were asked what they would require to shift to their own judgement, they were substantially more likely to use the algorithm and performed better on the task.

When the algorithm was the default and they were asked what they would require to shift to their own judgement, they were substantially more likely to use the algorithm and performed better on the task.

This study is a limited and preliminary result, but it illustrates the central challenge to this approach—the difficulty of manipulating the default across numerous domains. But on the bright side, once an algorithm becomes the default, there will be a barrier to sliding back to the old option. There appears little demand for elevator operators today.

So now to another side of this story.

The third Mercury flight was taken by John Glenn in what would become the first orbit of the earth by anAmerican (although he was also preceded by a chimpanzee). When Glenn was flying over California, the automatic attitude control and the gyros, which controlled the capsule’s orientation, started to go haywire. Glenn’s attempts to reset the gyros did not solve the problem. The automatic firing of the thrusters from the capsule trying to right itself was chewing up the fuel supply.

That Glenn was drifting around in circles did not matter at this stage of the flight—it only mattered at the critical point of re-entry that the blunt end of the capsule be pointed in the right direction. Too steep an angle of attack and the capsule would burn up; too shallow and he would bounce off the earth’s atmosphere and remain in space. He also needed fuel at the time that angle would be set.

Home video records (by means of smartphone technology) are very useful in all forms of TLOC to allow signs of an attack to be studied. Patients and their relatives should be urged to record attacks, if possible, in cases of diagnostic uncertainty. In epilepsy, advances are made towards prolonged video and EEG recording in patients' homes. 206 , 207 For syncope or PPS, experience suggests that the chances of obtaining a video record are higher for PPS than for syncope, which is probably the effect of a high frequency and long duration of attacks in PPS. It is rare for the beginning of events to be recorded. 206 Home video records allow complex events such as syncope-induced epileptic seizures to be diagnosed. 208

Video recording in suspected syncope


Video recording in suspected syncope


In an overview of eight studies, including 625 patients with syncope undergoing EPS, 209 positive results occurred predominantly in patients with structural heart disease. In recent years, the development of powerful non-invasive methods, i.e. prolonged ECG monitoring, showing a higher diagnostic value, has decreased the importance of EPS as a diagnostic test. In clinical practice, registry data show that approximately 3% of patients with unexplained syncope evaluated by cardiologists undergo EPS and even fewer if they are evaluated by other specialists. 71 Nevertheless, EPS remains useful for diagnosis in the following specific clinical situations: asymptomatic sinus bradycardia (suspected sinus arrest causing syncope), bifascicular BBB (impending high-degree AV block), and suspected tachycardia.

The pre-test probability of bradycardia-related syncope is relatively high when there is asymptomatic sinus bradycardia (<50 b.p.m.) or sinoatrial block, usually documented by 12-lead ECG or ECG monitoring. The prognostic value of a prolonged sinus node recovery time (SNRT) is not well defined. An abnormal response is defined as ≥1.6 or 2 s for SNRT, or ≥525 ms for corrected SNRT. 210 One observational study showed a relationship between the presence of prolonged SNRT at EPS and the effect of pacing on symptoms. 211 Another small prospective study showed that a corrected SNRT ≥800 ms had an eight-fold higher risk of syncope than a SNRT below this value. 212

Patients with bifascicular block and syncope are at higher risk of developing high-degree AV block. 213 A prolonged HV interval ≥70 ms, or induction of second- or third-degree AV block by pacing or by pharmacological stress (ajmaline, procainamide, or disopyramide), identifies a group at higher risk of developing AV block. By combining the above-mentioned parts of the electrophysiological protocol, a positive EPS yielded a positive predictive value as high as ≥80% for the identification of patients who will develop AV block in old studies. 214–216 This finding has been indirectly confirmed by recent studies that showed a significant reduction in syncopal recurrences in patients with prolonged HV implanted with a pacemaker compared with a control group of untreated patients with a negative EPS 188 , or with a control group who received an empiric pacemaker. 217 These results justify an upgrade of the recommendation for EPS-guided therapy (i.e. cardiac pacing) in patients with a positive EPS from class IIa to class I.
