“Big data”

There is increasing interest in analysing huge datasets and in applying “artificial intelligence”/”machine learning” methods to such analyses rather than more traditional statistical methods. As yet this has had relatively little development in therapy data but it will surely come and some work on applying these methods is emerging. We’re sure there are gains from collection of very large aggregated datasets, however, we’re more wary of much of the excitement generally about “big data” and “AI/ML” methods!
