• Ethical Considerations Related to Using Machine Learning-Based Prediction of Mortality in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

    15 days ago - By The Journal of Pediatrics

    Machine Learning shows promise for developing prediction models that could improve care in the pediatric intensive care unit. Advocates claim these systems enhance prognostic accuracy and can adapt to changing clinical practices by adding more and new large-scale child health data. accurate predictive models using ML could benefit decision-making and care delivery, and in turn, outcomes for patients and families. Despite their potential, some of these models may replicate the biases of their training datasets or may be biased in other ways , and are built without the capacity to explain...
