Chapter 9. Applying Neural Network to Healthcare Data

Neural-network-based models are gradually becoming the backbone of artificial intelligence and machine learning implementations. The future of data mining will be governed by the usage of artificial neural-network-based advanced modeling techniques. One obvious question: why is neural network gaining so much importance recently though it was invented in 1950s? Borrowed from the computer science domain, a neural network can be defined as a parallel information processing system where the inputs are connected with each other like neurons in the human brain to transmit information so that activities such as face recognition, image recognition, and so on can be performed. In this chapter, we are ...
