First Do No Harm: Understanding the ML/AI Behind Clinical Decision Alerts

October 14, 2021

Precision Health at U-M continues its seminar series on how precision-health research and approaches impact clinical care. On October 29, join us for "First Do No Harm: Understanding the ML/AI Behind Clinical Decision Alerts." During this introduction to machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare, you will learn the limitations of using electronic health records (EHR); the distinctions between AI, data science, ML, and informatics; how these work together to create clinical decision alerts; and their implications for practice. You'll also learn how these models move from development to deployment. This presentation is geared toward clinicians from all health disciplines, ML/AI healthcare researchers, and anyone interested…

IDEAL RRTC Disability Webinar Series: Bone Health

October 11, 2021

Adults with pediatric-onset neurodevelopmental disabilities and skeletal disabilities are often challenged by bone fragility. Edward Hurvitz, M.D., and Daniel Whitney, Ph.D., will discuss implications of skeletal fragility and fracture risk on health outcomes and quality of life over the lifespan. They will describe the physiology of bone development and how it differs in these disabilities, and the importance of considering bone size and mineralization as an innovative way of assessing fracture risk. This information forms the basis for discussing how bone strength is affected in various conditions, along with implications for treatment. Knowing the biological and biomechanical pathways to fragility can inform…

Machine Learning and Causality: Building Efficient, Reliable Models for Decision-Making

September 15, 2021

All seminars will be held in-person in IOE 1680 as well as virtually on Zoom. For the Zoom link and password, RSVP at https://forms.gle/6L14KTNJu9sizkN36. To view all of our upcoming seminars, see https://cheps.engin.umich.edu/seminar-series/2021-seminar/. Increasingly practitioners are looking to ML-based causal and predictive models to provide personalized decision guidance. However, current techniques for causal inference typically rely on having access to large amounts of data, limiting their applicability to data-constrained settings such as healthcare where collection of data might be prohibitively costly. In addition, empirical evidence has shown that most predictive models are insufficiently robust with respect to shifts at test time. This…
