Title: Learning Machines for Clinical Applications

Abstract
A learning machine is an autonomous self-regulating open reasoning machine system that actively learns in an unsupervised (or semi-supervised) and decentralised manner. This talk discusses the case of learning machines for prediction tasks. In Internet-based psychiatry, patients follow a structured programme of cognitive therapy. The learning machine task is here to predict, as early as possible and with as high accuracy as possible, which patients are in need of additional support to successfully complete the programme. In the talk, I will highlight some of the methodological challenges of cross-disciplinary work and of introducing learning machines into a real-life clinical patient flow.
