CDC Science Clips: Volume 12, Issue 29, August 25, 2020
Science Clips is produced weekly to enhance awareness of emerging scientific knowledge for the public health community. Each article features an Altmetric Attention scoreexternal icon to track social and mainstream media mentions!
This week’s Science Clips is pleased to feature articles under the topic of vaccine-preventable disease (VPD) in conjunction with National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). NIAM is an annual observance held in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages. Because local prevention needs vary with the communities, CDC has provided diverse campaigns to choose from with different prevention focuses and audiences. Articles are unique because they include at least one CDC author and make use of artificial intelligence/machine learning (Ai/ML) as follows:
- Authors used Support Vector Machineexternal icon models to introduce a novel approach to rapidly determine cladistic information for any number of genes without the need for time-consuming sequence alignment, phylogenetic tree construction, or manual annotation.
- Authors used Online Adaptive Lasso Auto Regressiveexternal icon methods to dynamically combine two distinct influenza tracking techniques to achieve improved state-level influenza activity estimates in the United States.
- Authors used Fast Artificial Neural Networksexternal icon to verify and validate the performance of the FluChip-8G Insight assay for the detection and positive identification of human and animal origin non-seasonal influenza A specimens.
- Authors used Random Forestexternal icon models to describe mothers' knowledge and attitudes about influenza illnesses and vaccination, and identify characteristics associated with mothers' intent to vaccinate their child.
- Authors discuss how machine learningexternal icon has been used in vaccine informatics.
- Natural Language Processing
- Authors used Finite State Machineexternal icon to describe negation in surveillance reports of adverse events following immunizations.
- Authors used rule-basedexternal icon algorithms to create a spelling error correction tool for surveillance reports of adverse events following immunizations.
- Authors used pyConText/NegExexternal icon software to identify local reaction associated with tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine in the Vaccine Safety Datalink.
- Authors used Stanford NLPexternal icon algorithms to identify vaccine-related anaphylaxis from plain-text clinical notes.
- Key Scientific Articles in Featured Topic
Subject matter experts decide what topic to feature, and articles are selected from the last 3 to 6 months of published literature. Key topic coincides monthly with other CDC products (e.g. Vital Signs).
