Know Your Diabetes Risk - Preventive Health through Risk Prediction and Knowledge Base
Section: Crisp Talk Technical level: Intermediate
In late 2017 we were wanting to do an academic project in the area of AI/ML. We did a literature review of chronic diseases and found that India is racing to be the Diabetes capital of the world. Then on, the core objective of our study became to predict Diabetes risk of an individual through a prediction module. To augment the prediction module, we trained a text analytics engine with knowledge of various aspects, all symptoms, possible prevention measures and daily management measures about the chronic diseases. This system accepts as input English language questions and replies in kind in human understandable language. We want the system to be made available to the population through Kiosks – KnowYourDiabeticRisk - at various Hospitals, Medical Centers, Public places.
Our literature reivew of chronic diseases and why we chose Diabetes as our primary disease for the study.

Going beyond what and asking why: Explainability in Machine/Deep Learning
As machine learning methods get increasingly absorbed in technologies ranging from high-end aerospace systems to low-end consumer technologies, there is a gradual, however steady, increase in the demand for explaining the decisions made by machine learning algorithms. DARPA launched a large initiative in 2016 to further the progress of explainable AI methods, underscoring the need for a concerted… more
