With digitalization disrupting every industry, including healthcare, the ability to capture, share and deliver data is becoming a high priority. Machine learning, big data and artificial intelligence (AI) can help address the challenges that vast amounts of data pose.

Machine learning can also help healthcare organizations meet growing medical demands, improve operations and lower costs.

At the bedside, machine learning innovation can help healthcare practitioners detect and treat disease more efficiently and with more precision and personalized care.

What Is Machine Learning? An Overview

Machine learning is one of the most common forms of AI. It processes and finds patterns in large data sets to enable…


This article describes how to create beautiful animations in R using the gganimate R package.

When telling a data-driven story, few things grab attention more than motion. Our eyes are naturally drawn to bright colors and movement. A good visualization captures the interest of the audience and makes an impression. Fortunately, making such displays has become quite simple with a few easy to use R packages.

gganimate is an extension of the ggplot2 package for creating animated ggplots. …


Natural Language Processing or NLP, is broadly defined as the automatic manipulation of natural language, like speech and text, by software. Natural Language Processing (NLP) refers to AI method of communicating with an intelligent systems using a natural language such as English. The study of natural language processing has been around for more than 50 years and grew out of the field of linguistics with the rise of computers.

Processing of Natural Language is required when you want an intelligent system like robot to perform as per your instructions, when you want to hear decision from a dialogue based clinical…


Exercise is any bodily activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness and overall health and wellness.

Data Visualization is the presentation of data in graphical format. It helps people understand the significance of data by summarizing and presenting huge amount of data in a simple and easy-to-understand format and helps communicate information clearly and effectively. It is the discipline of trying to understand data by placing it in a visual context so that patterns, trends and correlations that might not otherwise be detected can be exposed.

Python offers multiple great graphing libraries that come packed with lots of different features. …


Recognizing handwritten text is a problem that can be traced back to the first automatic machines that needed to recognize individual characters in handwritten documents. Think about, for example, the ZIP codes on letters at the post office and the automation needed to recognize these five digits. Perfect recognition of these codes is necessary in order to sort mail automatically and efficiently. Included among the other applications that may come to mind is OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. OCR software must read handwritten text, or pages of printed books, for general electronic documents in which each character is well defined…


Data analysis can be described as a process consisting of several steps in which the raw data are transformed and processed in order to produce data visualizations and make predictions. Data analysis is schematized as a process chain consisting of the following sequence of stages:

The rapid growth of the internet and computer technology over the past few years has led to the growth in new forms of crime — dubbed cyber crime — throughout the world. The term “cyber crime” has nowhere been defined in any statute or Act passed or enacted by the Indian Parliament. Today, the world is moving towards a point where everything from banking to stock exchanges and traffic control, telephones to electric power, health care, welfare and education depends on software. This exponential growth, and the increase in the capacity and accessibility of computers coupled with the decrease in…
