About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Learners have the opportunity to choose and undertake an exercise based on MIMIC-III extracted datasets that combines knowledge from:
Data mining of Clinical Databases to query the MIMIC database
Deep learning in Electronic Health Records to pre-process EHR and build deep learning models
Explainable deep learning models for healthcare to explain the models decision
Learners can choose from:
1. Permutation feature importance on the MIMIC critical care database
The technique is applied both on logistic regression and on an LSTM model. The explanations derived are global explanations of the model.
2. LIME on the MIMIC critical care database
The technique is applied on both logistic regression and an LSTM model. The explanations derived are local explanations of the model.
3. Grad-CAM on the MIMIC critical care database
GradCam is implemented and applied on an LSTM model that predicts mortality. The explanations derived are local explanations of the model.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
