LCP student receives award


We are delighted to announce that MingYu Lu has won the Distinguished Paper award at the AMIA 2020 Annual Symposium! MingYu worked under the guidance of Dr. Li-wei Lehman where they evaluated the safety and robustness of machine learning models for clinical treatment decision making in their paper titled 'Is Deep Reinforcement Learning Ready for Practical Applications in Healthcare? A Sensitivity Analysis of Duel-DDQN for Hemodynamic Management in Sepsis Patients'. Their work systematically explored the sensitivity of a deep reinforcement learning (DRL) technique for sepsis treatment, and uncovered several important areas of caution in adopting DRL in a healthcare setting.
