Visualizing a patient in the recommendation system

Visual instance-based recommendation system for medical data mining

Abstract

This paper presents an instance-based algorithm allowing exploration of large medical dataset by making pairwise connection between patients. In our metric-free method, each individual in a dataset ranks every member of the dataset. By aggregating these ranks, it is then possible to visualize data according to typical individuals representing subsets of closely-related patients. The paper also describes a visualization tool allowing exploration of a database of diabetic patients. This prototype of a recommendation system implements the aforementioned algorithm to enrich data, structure patients, create associations between individuals and provide recommendations.
