Generating Digital Twins with Multiple Sclerosis Using Probabilistic Neural Networks

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a complex set of clinical assessments. We use an unsupervised machine learning model called a Conditional Restricted Boltzmann Machine (CRBM) to learn the relationships between covariates commonly used to characterize subjects and their disease progression in MS clinical trials. A CRBM is capable of generating digital twins, which are simulated subjects having the same baseline data as actual subjects. Digital twins allow for subject-level statistical analyses of disease progression. The CRBM is trained using data from 2395 subjects enrolled in the placebo arms of clinical trials across the three primary subtypes of MS. We discuss how CRBMs are trained and show that digital twins generated by the model are statistically indistinguishable from their actual subject counterparts along a number of measures.

Charles Fisher, Unlearn.AI: “now is the time to adopt AI-based solutions”

The potential for AI implementation in healthcare can barely be measured, as it can already do what humans do, just countless times better and more efficiently.
The European Medicines Agency has qualified Unlearn’s AI-powered method for running smaller, faster clinical trials.
Digital twins seem to be everywhere in healthcare now, but no one agrees on a single definition for them.
