If the principal aim of predictive medicine is to predict the future direction of a person’s life in terms of health on the basis of available data, then in this metaphor the problem is to predict what direction the river will take, given its spring location in a particular country and the environmental data available. This book discusses how the use of newer mathematical approaches like those inherent to artificial neural networks environment offer the chance to trace the health–disease drainage divide.
