Deep Learning: The Next Step in Applied Healthcare Data

Big data in healthcare can now be measured in exabytes, and every day more data is being thrown into the mix in the form of patient-generated information, wearables and EHR systems. Traditional methods of analysis are no longer enough to handle, let alone take proper advantage of, the potential that healthcare data holds. This is where deep machine learning (or simply, “deep learning”) comes in. However, its greatest power lies in its ability to extract value from data in ways that humans and traditional machine learning methods cannot. Deep machine learning has applications in a number of healthcare areas. Improving Hospital Care Massachusetts General Hospital is a pioneer in implementing deep learning artificial intelligence. It announced in April that it would be using a deep learning supercomputer to help improve…
