Machine learning is an emerging technology with promise to impact a wide variety of areas throughout the healthcare enterprise. In this discussion, we’ll review advances in machine learning and their potential impact on several areas of healthcare, with special focus in diagnostic areas. In addition, we’ll discuss some of the challenges and approaches that have been taken to translate this technology at the Partners organization.
