PREDICTING HOSPITAL READMISSION SIN THE MEDICARE POPULATION

Artificial Intelligence & ML, Data mining, Machine Learning, MSC IT
PREDICTING HOSPITAL READMISSION SIN THE MEDICARE POPULATION Avoidable hospital readmissions cost taxpayers billions of dollars each year. The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission has estimated that almost $12 billion is spent annually by Medicare on potentially preventable readmissions within 30 days of a patient’s discharge from a hospital [1]. The Medicare program has begun to apply financial penalties to hospitals that have excessive risk-adjusted readmission rates. There is much interest in the health policy and medical communities in the ability to accurately predict which patients are at high risk of being readmitted. Not only are there strong financial reasons to avoid readmissions, readmission to the hospital can be a sign of poor clinical care and can indicate a worsening of a patient’s condition [2]. If doctors and nurses were aware of…

Classifier Comparisons On Credit Approval Prediction

Artificial Intelligence & ML, Machine Learning, MSC IT
Classifier Comparisons On Credit Approval Prediction The objective of this work is to investigate the performance of different classification algorithms using WEKA tool for credit card approval. A major problem in financial analysis is to build an ultimate model that yields fruitful results on certain given information. Neither a single data mining model fulfills all business requirements nor does a business need depend on a single model. Different models must be evaluated to attain the ultimate model. This kind of difficulty could be resolved with the aid of machine learning which could be used directly to obtain the end result with the aid of several artificial intelligent algorithms which perform the role of classifiers. Classification algorithms always find a rule or set of rules to represent data in classes [1].…

QUANTIFYING POLITICAL LEANING FROM TWEETS, RETWEETS, AND RETWEETERS

Artificial Intelligence & ML, Data mining, Machine Learning, MSC IT
QUANTIFYING POLITICAL LEANING FROM TWEETS, RETWEETS, AND RETWEETERS In recent years, big online social media data have found many applications in the intersection of political and computer science. Examples include answering questions in political and social science (e.g., proving/disproving the existence of media bias [3, 30] and the “echo chamber” effect [1, 5]), using online social media to predict election outcomes [46, 31], and personalizing social media feeds so as to provide a fair and balanced view of people’s opinions on controversial issues [36]. A prerequisite for answering the above research questions is the ability to accurately estimate the political leaning of the population involved. If it is not met, either the conclusion will be invalid, the prediction will perform poorly [35, 37] due to a skew towards highly vocal…

Workflow-Based Big Data Analytics in The Cloud Environment

Artificial Intelligence & ML, Machine Learning, MSC IT
Workflow-Based Big Data Analytics in The Cloud Environment Since digital data repositories are more and more massive and distributed, we need smart data analysis techniques and scalable architectures to extract useful information from them in reduced time. Cloud computing infrastructures offer an effective support for addressing both the computational and data storage needs of big data mining applications. In fact, complex data mining tasks involve data- and compute-intensive algorithms that require large and efficient storage facilities together with high-performance processors to get results in acceptable times. In this chapter, we present a Data Mining Cloud Framework designed for developing and executing distributed data analytics applications as workflows of services. In this environment, we use datasets, analysis tools, data mining algorithms and knowledge models that are implemented as single services that can be combined through a visual programming…

Android Local Train Ticketing Project

Android Mobile development, BSC IT & BCA, BSC IT & BSC CS, MCA, MSC IT, Web | Desktop Application
Android Local Train Ticketing Project A local train ticketing system project for local trains that allows users to book local train tickets and get ticket receipt online. This local train project provides login rights for normal users and admin. A normal user may login and get a ticket online, print it and travel by train. The ticketing process consists of a ticket booking form. The form allows the user to choose his source and destination. The source is the station from where the user will be boarding the train. Destination is the station he needs to get down at. The project database is already filled with stations on Mumbai western central and harbor line. It can be modified for any other city as needed. The system also consists of an…
