Predicting suicidal behavior:
Artificial intelligence for actual human users
Gregory E. Simon, MD, MPH
This presentation will describe work by the NIMH-funded Mental Health Research Network (www.mhresearchnetwork.org) to develop and implement tools to identify and assess risk of suicidal behavior in large integrated healthcare systems. Using this example, the presentation will describe collaboration with health system stakeholders in the development and implementation of machine learning prediction models. Discussion will illustrate general principles to improve the practical utility of machine learning or artificial intelligence tools.
