On his blog and YouTube channel, he shares his thoughts and experiences of applying machine learning to healthcare. Most recently, one of his fun coding projects where he created his own alternative to the YouTube algorithm for finding interesting videos went viral.
In this episode, Dr. Lovejoy starts by delving into why he decided to code up his own YouTube videos recommendation algorithm. We then discuss the state of AI in medical research and explore what could be the gold standard of reporting results on the use of AI in medical studies.
