Machine learning is overtaking humans in predicting death or heart attack.
Machine learning is overtaking humans in predicting death or heart attack. That’s the main message of a study presented yesterday at ICNC 20191.
The International Conference on Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac CT (ICNC) is co-organised by the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), and the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM).
By repeatedly analysing 85 variables in 950 patients with known six-year outcomes, an algorithm “learned” how imaging data interacts. It then identified patterns correlating the variables to death and heart attack with more than 90% accuracy.
