In the real world, it is common that different experts have different opinions on the same problem due to their different experience. [...] Key Method We formulate Comdi as a quadratic optimization problem and propose an efficient alternating strategy to find the solution. Besides learning a globally consistent metric, Comdi provides an elegant way to share knowledge across multiple experts without sharing the underlying data, which lowers the risk of disclosing private data. Our experiments on several…Expand
A relative similarity based method for interactive patient risk prediction
TLDR
An interactive patient risk prediction method is proposed, which actively queries medical experts with the relative similarity of patients, and makes several interesting discoveries including that querying relative similarities is effective in patient risk Prediction, and sometimes can even yield better prediction accuracy than asking for absolute questions.
