Baseline Performance Establishment

Dear colleagues and educators,

I was just wondering when you are attempting an unprecedented classification problem

e.g. diagnosing Parkinson’s via changes in a patient’s voice
y = probability of patient developing Parkinson’s given their voice changes based on audio recordings
This isn’t possible for human physicians to do

How do you establish a baseline performance?
Is there a recommended algorithm to train and compare results against

Hi @Jamal_Hasan_Jamal_Ha,

I would look for some relevant research papers which tried Machine Learning and shared the performance and the architecture of their models. Then we can start implementing the paper’s model.

Cheers,
Raymond

Sometimes you just have to keep making improvements to your strategy and implementation until you get results that are “good enough” for the task you’re working on.

Jamal,

Are you still working on PD? I would like to, also. Drop me a line if you want to trade thoughts.
