International Journal of Medical Engineering and Informatics (IJMEI), Vol. 5, No. 4, 2013

Abstract: The capability of automatic recognition of data patterns has made machine learning very popular in modern science. Well, in clinical settings, the goal is not to find a function that most closely fits the data, but to find one that will most accurately predict outcome from future input.
