Title: Phenotyping Long COVID Using Machine Learning and Electronic Health Records: Promise and Pitfalls


Abstract: Long COVID is a life-altering, potentially debilitating sequela of COVID-19. Though it is clear that long COVID is a major public health crisis, we still lack a firm definition of the disease over two years after the condition was first recognized. Machine learning models trained on electronic health records may provide one avenue to enable us to find patterns among patients diagnosed with long COVID, which in turn may help us identify other patients who lack a diagnosis, but may have long COVID all the same. This is a first step toward a definition of long COVID that can be leveraged for future long COVID research, but there remains a long road ahead.

About AI4PAN Artificial Intelligence for Pandemics Seminar Series centred at UQ

Welcome to AI4PAN, the Artificial Intelligence for Pandemics group centered at The University of Queensland (UQ). The group's focus is the application of data science, machine learning, statistical learning, applied mathematics, computation, and other "artificial intelligence" techniques for managing pandemics both at the epidemic and clinical level.
