The Institute of Health Informatics starts its student seminar on Thursday, Sept. 8 from 3:30 to 4:30 pm in 555 Diehl Hall featuring Dr. Subramani Mani of Vanderbilt University.
He will present "Predictive Modeling Using Machine Learning for Better Clinical Decision Making" that provides an overview of recent studies using machine learning methods for building predictive models. The models include:
~ Early detection of neonatal sepsis
~ Risk forecasting for type 2 diabetes
~ Early prediction of tumor response to neoadjuvant therapy with quantitative MRI
Dr. Mani's presentation will describe modeling methods derived from electronic health records that can be used to build models with the potential to improve clinical decision making and pave the way for personalized medicine.
The weekly IHI seminars, held in 555 Diehl Hall from 3:30 to 4:30 pm, are geared toward students but open to the public. Contact Jessica Whitcomb-Trance with questions.
