Death Vs. Data Science: Predicting End of Life

Death is an inevitable part of life and while it cannot be delayed indefinitely it is possible to predict with some certainty when the health of a person is going to deteriorate. In this paper, we predict risk of mortality for patients from two large hospital systems in the Pacific Northwest.

Interpretable Machine Learning in Healthcare

Muhammad Aurangzeb Ahmad, Carly Eckert, Ankur Teredesai, and Greg McKelvey

The drive towards greater penetration of machine learning in healthcare is being accompanied by increased calls for machine learning and AI based systems to be regulated and held accountable in healthcare. Interpretable machine learning models can be instrumental in holding machine learning systems accountable. Healthcare offers unique challenges for machine learning where the demands for explainability, model fidelity and performance in general are much higher as compared to most other domains. In this paper we review the notion of interpretability within the context of healthcare, the various nuances associated with it, challenges related to interpretability which are unique to healthcare and the future of interpretability in healthcare
