This is a preliminary version of the lab series of Deep Learning for Healthcare
in CSE6250 Big Data Analytics for Healthcare by Prof. Jimeng Sun
Deep learning techniques are widely used in many domains such as Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Speech Recognition, and so forth with their great performances.
Empowered by a massive amount of healthcare data such as Electronic Health Records (EHR) or insurance claims data, deep learning techniques have been applied for healthcare applications also and have achieved succesful results 1,2,3 even though there are some challenges different from other areas.
Throughout the series of the lab sessions, we will introduce some deep learning approches, a varity of neural networks, and practices with healthcare data examples. Enjoy!
