Developing a Classifier for Parkinson's Disease


I am a Junior at MIT studying Computer Science and Economics. For my research I am working on a machine learning (ML) model that can predict the likelihood that a person has Parkinson's Disease from data collected on a mobile phone; I am very interested in how machine learning can have a place in modern medicine. Throughout this project I hope to learn more about different ML models and their implementation.
