• Creating a Cost of Care prediction with TensorFlow

    I speak to a lot of people about AI. About the possibilities for healthcare, the limitations, the tools, and how the Cloud providers help us quickly build models. I decided to explore what it takes to build, train and publish a simple AI model to predict a patient’s insurance charges. In this 5 minute video, I explore how to create a simple ‘cost of care’ prediction model and gain experience with TensorFlow, Google’s open source software library for machine learning with particular focus on training of deep neural networks. I decided to explore the steps that it takes to go from zero to a fully trained published model. In this 5 minute video I’ll show you the steps I had to take to create a blueprint for further investigation.

  • Five Healthcare Predictions for 2021

    Today is a momentous occasion. At 7.30GMT, the retired maintenance manager Brian Pinker, 82, became the first patient to receive the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. The first vaccine that doesn’t require super-cold storage. The ‘2020 BC epoch’, as I like to call it (Before-COVID), showed how predictions are often wildly inaccurate, and subject to different realities yet to be imagined. But, in a 2021 AC era (After-COVID), with vaccines being rolled out across the UK, I feel confident enough to make a few predictions about what the rest of 2021 has install for us.

    My only disclaimer is these are my thoughts, and I reserve the right to change them. But, perhaps, just perhaps, you might be bold enough to wager a few Bitcoins that I might indeed be right. Bitcoin is currently trading at a record high of $33,562 so my first prediction is it will only go down. Sorry about that. But with that disclaimer out of the way, here are my top ideas for 2021 AC.
