Elderly are the ones that are the most vulnerable persons to diseases as their immune system gets weaker, and start to lose some of their natural abilities; for example their stamina decreases, vision loses accuracy, and for our particular case we are focusing on the memory. Alzeihmer is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that affects directly the brain consequently it results in a loss of memories.
What it does
This program endeavours to detect this disease. By asking a set of questions, we can tell if the patient is actually affected.
How I built it
We have used the Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio to build it, by uploading a file containing data of recent patients and their answers to the questions we've formulated.
Challenges I ran into
Understand how to effectively use Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio(MAML). Use the correct the format while using Excel, in order to be correctly compiled by MAML.
What I learned
Manipulate the software (MAML).
What's next for Alzeihmer Test
Use hardware devices to bring some accuracy to the program, by using a micro controller called Arduino. We will need EGG to observe the activity of the brain.
