Interpretable Machine Learning for COVID-19 Diagnosis Through Clinical Variables
This work proposes an interpretable machine learning approach to diagnose suspected COVID-19 cases based on clinical variables. Results obtained for the proposed models have F-2 measure superior to 0.80 and accuracy superior to 0.85. Interpretation of the linear model feature importance brought insights about the most relevant features. Shapley Additive Explanations were used in the non-linear models. They were able to show the difference between positive and negative patients as well as offer a global interpretability sense of the models.
