Text Data Augmentation for Deep Learning

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is one of the most captivating applications of Deep Learning. Deep Learning generally struggles with the measurement of generalization and characterization of overfitting. We highlight studies that cover how augmentations can construct test sets for generalization. NLP is at an early stage in applying Data Augmentation compared to Computer Vision. For the sake of practical implementation, we describe tools that facilitate Data Augmentation such as the use of consistency regularization, controllers, and offline and online augmentation pipelines, to preview a few. Finally, we discuss interesting topics around Data Augmentation in NLP such as task-specific augmentations.

Stop Tilting at Windmills: Getting to a Longitudinal Patient Record in a Fractured System

The longitudinal patient record is often discussed as a feature of an evolved healthcare IT landscape. But what would it mean to truly implement it in our current system? Creating better ways for patients to access their own full-length medical records would certainly, be an improvement, and despite regulatory and business innovation efforts to inject this idea into the process, the reality is often more complicated.
