Machine learning is being used to reduce antibiotic resistance!

Dear Commons Community,

There is an article in the current edition of Science that describes how new machine learning software is being used to tackle antibiotic resistance.  Using a large database (see figure above),  the software compares the patient’s history to an array of demographic indicators to prescribe the appropriate antibiotic.  Very beneficial use of machine learning.

The entire article is below.
