Machine Learning Can Help Us Understand Conversations About Death

University of Vermont

Researchers at the University of Vermont have used machine learning and natural language processing to better understand end-of-life conversations. Borrowing techniques used to study fiction, where algorithms analyze manuscripts to identify story types, the researchers identified several common elements in these conversations. That knowledge could eventually help healthcare practitioners understand what makes a “good” conversation about palliative care.
