Machine Learning for identifying teenage patients at risk of gestational hypertension.
The goal of this project is to develop an ML model to identify teenage patients at risk of gestational hypertension.The project will gather clinical datasets relating to teenage pregnancies from the Namibian context, train the dataset based on nine binary classification models and compare the prediction performance of the different models trained. This will provide treatment options at an early phase which could prevent progression into preeclampsia.
The PI of this project is Dr Gloria Iyawa, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Informatics at Pan African Information Communication Technology Association (“PAICTA”).
