EHP podcast on artificial intelligence
In a new podcast from Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP), "The Art of the Algorithm: Machine Learning in Environmental Health Research," Nicole Kleinstreuer explains how environmental health scientists are using machine learning for purposes such as predicting toxicological end points based on large curated data sets. But even as machine learning advances, she explains, researchers must set realistic expectations and performance thresholds for these new methods. Dr. Kleinstreuer is Acting Director of the NTP Interagency Center for the Evaluation of Alternative Toxicological Methods and an associate editor for EHP.
