ATS 2017: Machine Learning May Help to Identify Sepsis Early

2017 24 May

Using electronic health records (EHRs) to identify patients in hospital at risk for sepsis is now possible using machine learning. Machine learning does not rely on rules, but is able to learn complex patterns in data without being programmed to do so. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania Health System presented their study of a machine-learning... Read more

Taking the Mystery Out of Machine Learning

2017 06 Apr

Radiologists have been taught to fear machine learning.  It means what it says, a machine can learn.  It is an inherently frightening concept.  It is almost a shame to put such a label on the process, because it is not really new.  Remember Fuzzy Logic?  Neural Networks?  We were all impressed that a computer could recognize the letter “A”, but that...
