Understand Them Accelerator

This accelerator uses algorithms developed in genomics research, where the problem is to find which genes predispose to a disease. The technique comes from medical research but is perfectly suited for the discovery of causal relationships (or, at least, correlation). This accelerator has been deployed in the health sector, to find the best predictors (or causes) of unpleasant side effects of a particular therapy (like drinking coffee, smoking or using particular drugs that could interfere with the therapy). A “prediction metric” is computed for each possible cause. Visualization techniques used in genomics, like heatmaps and vulcano plots, are adapted to each business scenarios.
