Machine learning predicts heart attacks with 90% accuracy

A machine learning algorithm has predicted heart attacks and death from heart disease with 90% accuracy, overtaking human practitioners. Using data from 950 patients with chest pain, researchers from the University of Turku, Finland,¬†were able to train an algorithm to identify patterns that indicate a higher propensity for heart attacks and cardiac-related deaths. The outcome … Continue reading Machine learning predicts heart attacks with 90% accuracy
