Last year ABN AMRO bank organised a hackathon, Beyond Banking during which time the bank opened a number of its APIs. It was a very fun event! Violeta participated with a team of her colleagues and they worked on a problem from the healthcare domain. They were given data from patients diagnosed with a rare type ofleukaemia. In that data, they had information about the treatment they received and their gene mappings.
The goal was to detect if there was something in the gene mapping of patients which could tell researchers and healthcare professionals how the patient will react to the treatment. In this way, they can prevent sending patients to a very intensive type of treatment (which can lead to numerous negative long-term side effects), if they know the patients are likely to react well to lower-intensity treatment.
