‘Machine Learning’ Tool May Predict Dementia Development Up to 10 Years Later

A novel late-life dementia-prediction model, known as the Disease State Index (DSI), may help identify risk for the disorder up to a decade later, new research suggests. The DSI is a validated and supervised risk assessment tool that uses “machine learning” methods to analyze large amounts of health information. “We were very happy to see how well this tool performed in predicting dementia,” senior author Alina Solomon, MD, PhD, Department of Neurology at the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio, told Medscape Medical News. Dr Alina Solomon “There are other available tools. But what we saw with the one we created was in the upper range of their performance results. So it did very well.” She stressed, however, that the DSI shouldn’t be used to diagnose dementia but to help…
