The researchers at Columbia University's Irving Medical Center analysed CT images from 92 patients receiving drug agent nivolumab in two trials; 50 patients receiving docetaxel in one trial, and 46 patients receiving gefitinib in one trial. To develop the model, the researchers used the CT images taken at baseline and on first-treatment assessment.

When preparing data, I often go through many different approaches to reach a level of quality of data that can provide accurate results. In this article, I describe how unsupervised ML can help in data preparation for machine learning projects and how it helps to get more accurate business insights.What’s Wrong with Traditional Data Preparation Approaches?For accurate predictions, the data must not only be properly labeled, de-deputed, broad, consistent, etc. The point is that the machine learning model should process the “right” data.
