Analysis of data is one of those things Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be good at. Researchers are finding that AI can predict heart failure as much as 9 months out, by analyzing electronic health records.
Nvidia BlogResearchers analyzed the records using deep learning, a type of artificial intelligence that can solve complex technical problems like face or speech recognition — sometimes even topping human performance.
This problem required computers to understand many types of health records — prescriptions or summaries of visits to doctors, for example — in many formats. Another challenge was tracking changes in the records over time to provide a full picture of patient health.
