Accurate models of patient survival probabilities provide important information to clinicians prescribing care for life-threatening and terminal ailments. [] Key Method In this paper, we demonstrate that an existing method for estimating simultaneous prediction intervals from samples can easily be adapted for patient-specific survival curve analysis and yields accurate results.

Individual Survival Distributions: A More Effective Tool for Survival Prediction
This paper motivates an alternative class of tools that can learn a model which provides an individual survival distribution which gives survival probabilities across all.
Spatiotemporal data mining: a survey on challenges and open problems
This work investigates the challenging issues in regards to spatiotemporal relationships, interdisciplinarity, discretisation, and data characteristics related to STDM tasks of classification, clustering, hotspot detection, association and pattern mining, outlier detection, visualisation, visual analytics, and computer vision tasks.
Regret Minimization with Function Approximation in Extensive-Form Games
Theoretical results for CFR are extended when using function approximation, and worst-case guarantees with function approximation are complemented with experiments on several common benchmark games with sequential decision making and imperfect information.


Effective Ways to Build and Evaluate Individual Survival Distributions
This paper motivates such individual survival distribution (ISD) models, explains how they differ from standard models, and discusses ways to evaluate such models - namely Concordance, 1-Calibration, Brier score, and various versions of L1-loss - and motivates and defines a novel approach "D- Calibration", which determines whether a model's probability estimates are meaningful.
Learning Patient-Specific Cancer Survival Distributions as a Sequence of Dependent Regressors
A local regression method for learning patient-specific survival time distribution based on patient attributes such as blood tests and clinical assessments is proposed and gives survival time predictions that are much more accurate than popular survival analysis models such as the Cox and Aalen regression models.
Predicting Survival Probabilities with Semiparametric Transformation Models
Abstract Prediction of survival probabilities for future patients is one of the main goals of fitting survival data with regression models. In this article we consider a large class of semiparametric
Deep Survival Analysis
Deep survival analysis is introduced, a hierarchical generative approach to survival analysis that scalably handles heterogeneous data types that occur in the EHR and is significantly superior in stratifying patients according to their risk.
Deep Learning for Patient-Specific Kidney Graft Survival Analysis
A deep learning method is proposed that directly models the survival function instead of estimating the hazard function to predict survival times for graft patients based on the principle of multi-task learning, which outperforms other common methods for survival analysis.
RNN-SURV: A Deep Recurrent Model for Survival Analysis
A new recurrent neural network model for personalized survival analysis called rnn-surv, able to exploit censored data to compute both the risk score and the survival function of each patient, gets better concordance index than the state of the art approaches.
Deep Survival: A Deep Cox Proportional Hazards Network
This paper runs simulated experiments and uses real survival data to build upon the risk-regression architecture proposed by Faraggi and Simon and demonstrates that the model, DeepSurv, not only works as well as other survival models but actually outperforms in predictive ability on survival data with linear and nonlinear risk functions.
Random survival forests
This article introduces random survival forests, a random forests method for the analysis of right-censored survival data, and extends Breiman’s random forests (RF) method, showing it to be highly accurate and comparable to state-of-the-art methods.
