Machine Learning for Disease Event Detection

Viral respiratory illnesses can be particularly challenging for people with asthma. A cold or flu can lead to acute respiratory complications or even death in asthmatics. Elder Research developed a predictive algorithm to define asthma, and identify asthma sufferers who are ill and at risk for major respiratory complications, allowing for intervention prior to onset of acute asthma symptoms, thereby potentiallypreventing hospital stays and even loss of life....

Do Algorithms Have Bias?

Algorithmic bias is a popular topic; see for example this article describing how Microsoft is working on a dashboard product to detect unfair bias in algorithms. When a typical person (not a statistician) uses the term "bias" they usually have in mind unfair prejudgment, or stacking of the deck, against a person based on some aspect of that person's identity (race, gender, ethnic background, religion, nationality, etc.). Until recently, "bias" meant something very different to...

Sophisticated Text Analysis Is Hard, but it Works

Since its founding more than twenty years ago Elder Research has been involved in hundreds of data mining projects. Most of those projects employ numerical data, but for about a decade now we have been called on increasingly to extract information from unstructured or semi-structured text.  Though Gartner recently classified Text Analytics as just exiting the “Trough of Disillusionment” on their famous “Hype Cycle”,[1] we have found that every text mining project we have worked...

Prediction in the Public Sector: Why the Government Needs Predictive Analytics

Data can appear lifeless and dull on the surface—especially government data—but the thought of it should actually get you excited. Data is the very most interesting and powerful thing. First off, data is exactly the stuff we bother to write down—and for good reason. But its potential far transcends functions like tracking and bookkeeping: Data encodes great quantities of experience, and computers can learn from that experience to make everything work better....

Team Diversity: Women In Data Science

According to Women in Tech: The Facts, a report by the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), “In 2015, women held 57% of all professional occupations, yet they held only 25% of all computing occupations.”  The NCWIT report authors believe that this pattern is “especially troubling given ample evidence of the critical benefits diversity brings to innovation, problem-solving, and creativity. Indeed, a solid body of research in computing and in...
