Both of Jay's and my grandparents have been diagnosed with diabetes in the last year. Watching them suffer, drove us to create a project that would help others not go through the same pain.
PLEASE LOOK AT WEBSITE ATTACHED BELOW FOR MORE INTERACTIVE STORY AND INFORMATION ABOUT OUR PROJECT:
What it does
Using Advanced Machine Learning Algorithms and Neural Networks to predict diabetes in a patient with absolutely no use of medical testing
How I built it
Built using python along with me and my friend's statistical background, expertise in machine learning, and strong mathematical foundation.
Challenges I ran into
In Machine Learning, accuracy is never perfect. We ran into various issues getting accurate predictions from our machine learning models. However through optimizations we were able to decrease the extent of these issues.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The strength and quality of our program and the advanced technical components.
What I learned
How to implement a machine learning algorithm as well as build a neural network in python. We had to use advanced mathematics such as
What's next for Using Machine Learning to Prevent Diabetes
We want to create a fully capable user interface that we can administer to the public along with our backend python script to help people globally to prevent diabetes from occurring in their families
