What is holding back the large scale implementation of machine learning systems in healthcare and precision medicine? In this article Dr. Amit Ray, explains the key obstacles and challenges of implementing large-scale machine learning systems in healthcare. Dr. Ray argued that lack of deeper integration, incomplete understanding of the underlying molecular processes of disease it is intended to treat, may limit the progress of implementing large-scale machine learning based reliable systems in healthcare. Here, nine obstacles of present day machine learning systems in healthcare are discussed.
Machine Learning in Healthcare
Recently, machine learning algorithms, especially deep learning has shown impressive performance in many areas of medical science, especially in classifying imaging data in different clinical domains. In academic environment, Deep learning and Reinforcement learning methods of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has shown tremendous success in numerous clinical areas such as: Omics data integration (such as genomics, proteomics or metabolomics), prediction of drug-disease correlation based on gene expression, and finding combinations of drugs that should not be taken together. Deep learning is very successful in predicting cancer outcome based on tumour tissue images. Machine learning are used for medical decision support systems for ICU and critical care. Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Current Trends discusses the current status of AI in healthcare. Read More »What’s Holding Back Machine Learning in Healthcare
