JOINT PREDICTION OF ONSET CHRONIC CONDITIONS

Chronic conditions can be costly but also preventable as well as predictable. We develop a model to predict in the short term (2-3 years) the onset of one or more chronic conditions. Five chronic conditions are considered: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, hypertension and cancer. Predictions are made on the basis of standard demographic/socio-economic variables, risk

LEVERAGING BIG DATA ANALYTICS TO REDUCE HEALTHCARE COSTS

The healthcare sector deals with large volumes of electronic data related to patient services. This article describes two novel applications that leverage big data to detect fraud, abuse, waste, and errors in health insurance claims, thus reducing recurrent losses and facilitating enhanced patient care. The results indicate that claim anomalies detected using these applications help

TIKHONOV OR LASSO REGULARIZATION: WHICH IS BETTER AND WHEN. IN TOOLS WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Fei Wang, Sanjay Chawla, and Wei Liu. “Tikhonov or lasso regularization: Which is better and when. In Tools with Artificial Intelligence” (ICTAI), 2013 IEEE 25th International Conference on, pages 795–802. IEEE, 2013. It is well known that supervised learning problems with ℓ1 (Lasso) and ℓ2 (Tikhonov or Ridge) regularizers will result in very different solutions. For example,

DATA SCIENCE AND THE POLICY COMPLETION PROBLEM

Sanjay Chawla, Federico Girosi, Fei Wang “Data Science and the Policy Completion Problem” The link between policy analysis and data science is more delicate than it may appear. A new policy, by definition, will change the underlying data generating model, rendering classification or supervised learning inapplicable. Perhaps eliciting causal relations from observational data is the
