The dynamic nature of crowd platforms poses an interesting problem for users who wish to schedule a large set of tasks on a given platform. Although crowd platforms vary in their performance characteristics, certain temporal patterns can be discerned and statistically modeled. Methods that can learn these patterns and adapt as the patterns change can(More)
Postoperative Acute Respiratory Failure (ARF) is a serious complication in critical care affecting patient morbidity and mortality. In this paper we investigate a novel approach to predicting ARF in critically ill patients. We study the use of two disparate sources of information – semi-structured text contained in nursing notes and investigative reports(More)
Binary classification based methods are commonly used for designing predictive models in heaIthcare. A common problem in many heaIthcare datasets is that of imbalance, where there are far more observations in one class than the other during training. In such conditions, most classifiers do not have good predictive accuracy with respect to the(More)
An Acute Hypotensive Episode (AHE) is the sudden onset of a period of sustained low blood pressure and is one of the most critical conditions in Intensive Care Units (ICU). Without timely medical care, it can lead to irreversible organ damage and death. By identifying patients at risk for this complication, adequate medical intervention can save lives and(More)
Phonocardiogram (PCG) or auscultation via a stethoscope forms the basis of preliminary medical screening. But PCG recorded in an uncontrolled environment is inherently noisy. In this paper we have derived novel features from the spectral domain and autocorrelation waveforms. These are used to identify the quality of a PCG recording and accepting only(More)
A rank clustering system, CloudRank, is proposed that takes into account cloud user preference data to characterize cloud user behaviour and also identify (an initially unknown set of) groups of users with similar behaviour in an unsupervised manner. The user groups are determined based on fitting mixture models on the cloud user preference observations. A(More)
Stroke is a major cause of mortality and long-term disability in the world. Predictive outcome models in stroke are valuable for personalized treatment, rehabilitation planning and in controlled clinical trials. We design a new multi-class classification model to predict outcome in the short-term, the putative therapeutic window for several treatments. Our(More)
