Hi all,

This might sound a bit of a stupid question, but I'm doing a project where I'm using an ANN to diagnose Sepsis in patients using various vital signs as inputs. The aim is to then develop an Android app that allows a user to put in the inputs and will return a risk score (% likelihood of sepsis, etc)

I'm constructing my ANN using Matlab (using their pattern recognition network wizard), and I'm using MIT App Inventor 2 to build the App itself.

Where I'm struggling, is understanding how one would actually put the ANN into the app. Can anyone explain how this works to me, or even just point me in some vague direction?

Really appreciate any feedback.

Thank you again,

Hi Conor,

I appreciate your question. I get the feeling that asking question on forums
isn't always going to be the best bet. It might even be that in the Andoid platform,
you are doing innovative work, and no one may have an answer because work
still needs to be done. Doesn't your neural network need to be "educated" first,
like the way an expert system does?

It seems like the objects and libraries for this all has to be built from scratch.
