Deep Prognosis: Predicting Mortality in the ICU

  • When a patient is observed to have a blood potassium of 5.5 mmol/L, doctors can quickly identify the culprit (e.g. renal failure, acute kidney injury, ACE inhibitor-induced, etc.) in light of the patient’s history and presentation.
  • In order to train the model, positive and negative patients need to be identified, and timepoints for those events need to be saved for later extraction of features.
  • Finally, the sequential features include the past medical history diagnoses (given in English), diagnoses given in the ICU up until the present moment (given in English and ICD-9 codes) and therapeutic and diagnostic interventions up until the present moment.
  • In summary, I’ve built a multimodal, flexible deep learning model and tool for providers, hospitals and insurers, that not only provides a single metric for a patient’s severity and mortality likelihood, but can also predict other events.

Let's learn MERN.

  • Traditional web applications involved putting business logic on the server which generated HTML pages and added certain dynamic content in those pages which got parsed on the client side like PHP, ASP.
  • In FSO's example site: https://fullstack-exampleapp.herokuapp.com, Express is running on the server which generates HTML page that gets loaded on the client.
  • In FSO's example notes page (https://fullstack-exampleapp.herokuapp.com/notes), all the business logic for this page is written on the client side.
  • Client makes a request to Notes page on the server, server return HTML page, which further contains a CSS file, JavaScript file.
  • In Notes page, we observed JavaScript file had certain logic that create and add HTML Nodes into DOM tree.
  • In Notes page, there is a Form tag in the markup that takes in user input, triggers a POST request upon submission to the server.

Using Netlify lambda functions to send emails from a GatsbyJS site

  • My website is fairly simple and doesn’t really need a back-end so it seemed silly to use a CMS with a database; as a developer, I can easily add new information without the need for a fancy admin area.
  • Also, I wanted the messages to go direct to my inbox, rather than checking on the Netlify site, so I decided lambda functions were the way to go.
  • So I just needed to create an endpoint to send emails and call this endpoint when the form is submitted.
  • I decided to make it dynamic too and to send all of the fields within the body of my email, this means that if I decided to add another field to the form in future, the function won’t need updating.

YellowHeart allows musicians and concert organizers to take more control of resold tickets

  • YellowHeart is trying to solve a problem that should be familiar to anyone who’s ever tried to buy a ticket for a popular concert: Those tickets will often get snatched up by scalpers, who then resell them at a much higher price.
  • In fact, the startup’s CEO, Josh Katz, said he founded the company because he’s a music “megafan” himself, and he was “just tired of getting ripped off by scalpers.” At the same time, he said this isn’t just a problem for concertgoers.
  • So YellowHeart can allow a musician, concert venue or other “event initiator” to set up rules for how their tickets are resold.
  • Katz said he’s hoping that some brave artists will simply say their tickets can’t be sold at a marked-up price, but he predicted that many more will set price ceilings and dictate that any resale profits are then split between the seller, the artist and/or a charity of the artist’s choosing.
