In this session, you are going to explore the application of ML in healthcare by making an activity for detecting whether a person has pneumonia disease, from the x-ray image of their chest.
You will then build an ML model to detect pneumonia using the built-in ‘Teachable Machine”. Then, import that model into PictoBlox and write a script to detect pneumonia from x-ray images. Watch the video for a step-by-step guide to making the “Face Expression Detector” activity within PictoBlox.
What is Machine Learning?
Machine Learning is a sub-field of Artificial intelligence. Machine Learning itself can have other sub-fields such as Deep Learning which is a class of machine learning algorithms that are inspired by the human brain.
Machine learning algorithms can be classified into 3 broad categories:
- Supervised Learning
- Unsupervised learning
- Reinforcement Learning
