Reminder Subject: TALK: Eric Xing (CMU): Dr. Computer, On Machine Learning Enabled, Data-Driven Healthcare

With the rapid growth of electronic health records (EHRs) and the advancement of machine learning (ML), ML-enabled data-driven healthcare is emerging. In this talk, I will introduce an ML platform we are building at Petuum Inc. for information distillation from EHRs and medical decision-making. I will discuss how to build a feature extraction pipeline that transforms unstructured and structured EHRs into canonical and readily actionable representations, and a machine learning framework that consumes these representations to assist physicians in making medical decisions, including diagnosis, similar-patient retrieval and treatment recommendation.
