Approximately 20% of medical appointments that are booked are not attended in the UK. This costs an estimated £1 billion annually. If we were able to predict who might not show up, we could take targeted measures to encourage them to do so, such as tailored text alerts or a quick phone call. Let’s try […]

Data Science for Breast Cancer

Pre-Requisites Ensure that you read the Getting Started tutorial to learn the basics of Colaboratory and how to navigate around files, and the interface. We’ll be using Colaboratory for our code so we won’t need to download anything. Introduction With research, there’s often a lot of data that is produced, and no meaningful way to process it […]

AI for Chest X-Rays

Chest X-Rays are used all the time in hospitals. By using Machine Learning (ML), we can train an algorithm to triage our chest x-rays to highlight those with a high risk of pathology. This tutorial is one that will require lots of computing power – thankfully, Colaboratory is great at this, as it lets us […]
