This lesson gives an introduction to artificial neural networks. We begin by an outlining an important application of machine learning in healthcare: the development of algorithms for classification of chest X-ray images. During the lesson we explore how to prepare and visualise data for algorithm development, and construct a neural net that is able to classify disease.
You need to understand the basics of Python before tackling this lesson. The lesson sometimes references Jupyter Notebook although you can use any Python interpreter mentioned in the Setup.
To get started, follow the directions on the “Setup” page to download data and install a Python interpreter.
