Every year nearly 30,000 Americans die from an aggressive, gut-infecting bacteria called Clostridium difficile (C. difficile), which is resistant to many common antibiotics and can flourish when antibiotic treatment kills off beneficial bacteria that normally keep it at bay. Investigators from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), the University of Michigan (U-M) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) now…Details

Briefing at the National Academy of Medicine Digital Learning Collaborative discussed the future of Artificial Intelligence in Health and Health Care.
In November of 2017, the Leadership Consortium for a Value & Science-Driven Health System of the National Academy of Medicine met in Washington D.C. to discuss the future of artificial intelligence and machine learning in health and health care. Follow the link to read the briefing in full.
Jenna Wiens to Present this Week’s MIDAS Seminar “Increasing the Utility of Machine Learning in Clinical Care”
Today’s hospitals are collecting an immense amount of patient data. My group aims to develop the machine learning tools needed to detect patterns in these data that can help inform clinical decisions, leading to improved patient care.
The goal of Kayvan Najarian, Ph.D.’s research, funded by a grant from the American Heart Association (AHA), is to exploit recent advancements in signal processing and machine learning algorithms to construct a fully automated, computer-based platform — AngioAid — that efficiently assists cardiologists with coronary angiogram video evaluation. Preliminary work by the group suggests such…Details
When training a machine learning algorithm for a supervised-learning task in some clinical applications, uncertainty in the correct labels of patients may adversely affect the performance of the algorithm. For example, even clinical experts may have less confidence when assigning a medical diagnosis to some patients because of ambiguity in the patient’s case or imperfect…Details
