Physicians and Medical Students Will Gain a Deeper Understanding of How Machine Learning Works by Reading Machine Learning Basics with Application to Healthcare
Wellisch Software Technologies, Inc. announces immediate availability of an e-book entitled Machine Learning Basics with Application to Healthcare. “The e-book is soup-to-nuts, explaining how machine learning works, in simple terms, as applied to the problem of determining malignant from benign tumors in humans,” says Dan Wellisch, President of Wellisch Software Technologies, Inc. It is an educational work that is useful for a physician’s postgraduate learning as well as for medical students. It is important that physicians and prospective physicians get some grasp on the usefulness of artificial intelligence (AI) as applied to healthcare (Machine learning is a type of AI). The e-book shows how machine learning works as applied to a specific medical problem. It answers these questions:
- What is machine learning?
- What are independent and dependent variables?
- What is a model?
- What does it mean to run a model?
- What is a confusion matrix?
Paul Cunningham, M.D. of Fairfax Radiological Consultants states, “The e-book reads like an informal talk someone might give trainees in a residency program. The part of the e-book that’s interesting to me is how the statistics are analyzed and used to validate the model.”
“In addition, the website https://mlmedicine.org has a blog discussing software engineering and machine learning with healthcare applications. Furthermore, the site also has links to other companies with interesting pursuits of machine learning and AI in healthcare.
