Math department seminar: Predicting hospital readmissions from doctors' notes

Erin Craig (Stanford University; formerly Wolfram) will be speaking over Zoom; her title and abstract follow. 

Title: Predicting hospital readmissions from doctors' notes

Abstract: Data science in medicine is an exciting and impactful application of math and computer science, with many open areas of research. We will motivate this with a brief discussion of electronic health records and the challenges they present. Then, we will give a gentle introduction to common neural network architectures for working with natural language (Word2Vec and CNN) and show how we can use them to predict hospital readmissions from doctors' notes.
