Do not forget interaction: Predicting fatality of COVID-19 patients using logistic regression

  title={Do not forget interaction: Predicting fatality of COVID-19 patients using logistic regression},
  author={Feng Zhou and Tao Chen and Bai Ying Lei},
Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, whether COVID-19 patients with high risks can be recovered or not depends, to a large extent, on how early they will be treated appropriately before irreversible consequences are caused to the patients by the virus. In this research, we reported an explainable, intuitive, and accurate machine learning model based on logistic regression to predict the fatality rate of COVID-19 patients using only three important blood biomarkers, including lactic dehydrogenase… Expand
Comparison of machine learning techniques to handle imbalanced COVID-19 CBC datasets
This work reviews the most employed machine learning classifiers for CBC data, together with popular sampling methods to deal with the class imbalance, and provides a panorama of which classifier and sampling methods provide the best results for different relevant metrics. Expand
Combat COVID-19 infodemic using explainable natural language processing models
An explainable natural language processing model based on DistilBERT and SHAP (Shapley Additive exPlanations) to combat misinformation about COVID-19 due to their efficiency and effectiveness and to boost public trust in model prediction is proposed. Expand

Clinical Characteristics of 138 Hospitalized Patients With 2019 Novel Coronavirus-Infected Pneumonia in Wuhan, China.
The epidemiological and clinical characteristics of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)-infected pneumonia in Wuhan, China, and hospital-associated transmission as the presumed mechanism of infection for affected health professionals and hospitalized patients are described. Expand
Epidemiological and clinical characteristics of 99 cases of 2019 novel coronavirus pneumonia in Wuhan, China: a descriptive study
Characteristics of patients who died were in line with the MuLBSTA score, an early warning model for predicting mortality in viral pneumonia, and further investigation is needed to explore the applicability of the Mu LBSTA scores in predicting the risk of mortality in 2019-nCoV infection. Expand
Don’t Dismiss Logistic Regression: The Case for Sensible Extraction of Interactions in the Era of Machine Learning
A statistically significant increase in predictive performance when using hybrid procedures and greater clarity in the association with the outcome of terms acquired compared to directly interpreting the random forest output are found. Expand
Interpretable Machine Learning
Interpretable machine learning has become a popular research direction as deep neural networks (DNNs) have become more powerful and their applications more mainstream, yet DNNs remain difficult toExpand
