The Next Big Thing in AI/ML is…

Summary:  AI/ML itself is the next big thing for many fields if you’re on the outside looking in.  But if you’re a data scientist it’s possible to see those advancements that will propel AI/ML to its next phase of utility.

 

“The Next Big Thing in AI/ML is…” as the lead to an article is probably the most…

Doctors are from Venus, Data Scientists from Mars – or Why AI/ML is Moving so Slowly in Healthcare

Summary: The world of healthcare may look like the most fertile field for AI/ML apps but in practice it’s fraught with barriers.  These range from cultural differences, to the failure of developers to really understand the environment they are trying to enhance, to regulatory and logical Catch 22s that work against adoption.  Part 3 of 3.

Seeing the AI/ML Future in Healthcare Through the Eyes of Physicians. It Doesn’t Look Quite the Way Data Scientists See It.

Summary: If you want to understand the promise of AI/ML in healthcare you need to see it through the eyes of physicians, the ultimate users.  Turns out these folks aren’t the rapid adopters you’d think they’d be and the problem is largely with the way data scientists have tried to implement.  Part 1 of 3.

 

It’s…

Healthcare Analytics: Build-Versus-Buy Quandary A Hurdle

The most obvious thing for any Health Care Organization (HCO) to do is to develop in-house infrastructure to manage its healthcare data. That’s simpler said than done, though. Setting up an Enterprise-grade data warehouse not only involves additional hires, there’s some amount of capital expenditure as well as operational costs involved.

Here’s what’s needed – an investment in the right personnel and the right…

Theory Development Using Symbols Rather than Quantities

In this blog, I will be considering theory developments from changes in methodology. But first I want to express an opinion on the significance of using numbers. A "number" represents an amplitude or magnitude: 5 pencils; 13 paperclips; 50 sheets of paper. The purpose of these numbers is to facilitate the counting of things that are presumably the same in a specific way: e.g. all 5 pencils are in fact pencils - for if 1 were an eraser, there would be 4 pencils and 1 eraser. The use of…

Measuring and Treating the Toxic Environment

Even today there seems to be considerable debate over the exact meaning of "stress." During my graduate studies, I pointed out that there are similar themes in the literature pertaining to stress; that perhaps researchers have been overemphasizing the differences. Among the most persistent themes is the distinction between stress and stressors. Hans Selye asserted in 1936 is that stress is an internal response against any form of noxious stimulant. He described the environmental factors…

Social Determinants of Disease

I routinely ask people who have degrees the following question: "So what did you do your thesis on?" Since I routinely encounter problems outside my domain, I like to be aware of the resources around me. I have been reminded that a student doesn't necessarily have to complete a major research paper to earn a degree. A student can just "do the program." As a person who has always chosen to do the research paper, I can say that this normally takes a fair amount of collaboration. There is a…
