Educational Goals

@sunbiz @tony @hzbarcea

I’m glad you see the merit in this proposed platform. Thanks for sharing the link to the NSF grant. I was not familiar with it. As a non-computer scientist, I see the merit in using WEKA to teach Introduction to Machine learning with no coding or math. I also put together a concept/mind map that ties all of this together. Connecting WEKA directly with LibreHealth EHR would be very significant.

Do we need other academic partners, particularly programs who have successfully been funded by the NIH or NSF?

@rhoyt @sunbiz I think the CSV loader is a super Idea. I think that would be very useful .

@teryhill @tony @sunbiz @hzbarcea

There is already a java web connector to connect Data World to WEKA. The issue is that it opens up a SQL query window, rather than loading the csv file, which would be better in my opinion.

I believe it would be unique to integrate a machine learning program like WEKA with an electronic health record. The same could be said for integrating NLP software and a few other ideas we have come up with

Would be nice to have other interested academic partners, if they want to be part of the work that needs to be done.

@sunbiz

Several universities are trying to get me to join their faculty and one of my criteria will be their willingness and depth to support this platform

Sorry for the late reply, 4th of July and all. But I do get the notifications.

I had a few conversations with @tony and I think the idea is great and we support it. In more concrete terms, cTakes uses individual text snippets, doesn’t matter if they come from a SQL database, individual files etc. We packaged it as a service and it works with both synchronous (REST) and asynchronous (JMS) calls. Working on the anonymizer now.

It’ll take a bit to productize it. Because of the constant changes in the cTakes processing pipelines I think it’s more suitable so run it as an external service, part of the mentioned platform. Also, because of difference in pipelines for different needs/users it looks like a multi-tenant model is needed, not supported directly by cTakes.

I ran across information about a WEKA server option: https://wiki.pentaho.com/display/DATAMINING/Weka+Server

As a non-computer scientists I’m not sure if this helps in any way our desire to integrate machine learning software with LibreHealth EHR

Just an update, we have some updates to the NHANES reporting tools that are in review (I’ve been out of town), going to try and get the reviews done this week so we can put them in the demos. cc: @rhoyt


(Bob Hoyt) #293

@tony

When you get a chance, please elaborate as I don’t know what the NHANES reporting tools look like


(Tony McCormick) #294

Bob, it’s what you paid us to do … :slight_smile:


(Bob Hoyt) #295

@tony

I thought it might be but the activity log and clinic reports are not NHANES specific so that is what confused me. Thanks


(Tony McCormick) #296

More generically the “Educational EHR” project, I guess.

@tony @teryhill @r0bby

I still get inquiries as to how to use the educational version of the EHR. I am referring them to Tony’s group for hosting and have to remind them not to use the Demo for teaching. Can we add some language on the demo site for them to “look but don’t touch?” In other words, don’t create new patients or create a new class in the demo.


(Tony McCormick) #298

I think we need to be clear the the ‘demo’ will be reset regularly and anything they do there will disappear without notice.


(Terry Hill) #299

That could be added on the front screen of the demo as long as the code for it is separate from the other instances.


(Tony McCormick) #300

What about a general announcement text field in globals maybe, that is normally empty? Then it could be used for other things like scheduled system down notices…

(Terry Hill) #301

Where to display it? Login page?


(Tony McCormick) #302

That’s what i was thinking.


(Bob Hoyt) #303

@tony @teryhill

I think that would be good. BTW, I’ll be discussing data science tools to include LibreHealth at the 2018 AMCIS Conference in New Orleans this weekend. Are we closer to adding the new software enhancements to the demo?


(Tony McCormick) #304

We (the integration team) have been focused on getting GSOC projects reviewed… the reporting stuff will get attention after the 21st…
