Lessons Learned from Deidentifying 700 Million Patient Notes

Providence embarked on an ambitious journey to de-identify all our clinical electronic medical record (EMR) data to support medical research and the development of novel treatments. This talk shares how this was done for patient notes and how you can achieve the same. First, we built a deidentification pipeline using pre-trained deep learning models, fine-tuned […]

Reliable Machine Learning Systems

Siraj Raval has a video exploring a paper about genomics and creating reliable machine learning systems. Deep learning classifiers make the ladies (and gentlemen) swoon, but they often classify novel data that’s not in the training set incorrectly with high confidence. This has serious real world consequences! In Medicine, this could mean misdiagnosing a patient. […]
