%
% Sample Submission for the PhysioNet 2012 Challenge. Variables are:
%
% time - (Nx1 Cell Array) Cell array containing time of measurement
% param - (Nx1 Cell Array) Cell array containing type (category) of
% measurement
% value - (Nx1 Double Array) Double array containing value of measurement
%
%
% risk - (Scalar) estimate of the risk of the patient dying in hospital
% prediction - (Logical)Binary classification if the patient is going to die
% in the hospital (1 - Died, 0 - Survived)
%
% Example:

%
%The sample submission calculates the in hospital death
%probability based on Bayesian Rule conditioned on SAPS_SCORE
%and PDF fitting based on training Set A.
%
% P(dying | SAPS_SCORE) = P(dying)*P(SAPS_SCORE|Dying)/
% (P(dying)*P(SAPS_SCORE|dying) + P(living)*P(SAPS_SCORE|living))
%
%Calculate likelihood, P(SAPS_SCORE|Dying), based polynomial fitting of the CDF
%of the training data A conditioned on those that died (values of the fit
%are hardcoded below)
%
% saps_died=SAPS_SCORE(ihd==1); %ihd is logical vector where 1 = in hospital death
% MX_SAPS=4*14;
% [Ndied,xx]=hist(saps_died,[0:MX_SAPS]);
% md=nanmean(saps_died);
% st_d=nanstd(saps_died)
% pdf_died=normpdf(xx,md,st_d);
% plot(xx,Ndied./sum(Ndied));hold on;grid on;plot(xx,pdf_died,'r') %Check fit
%
% Repeat to get conditional probability on those that lived using Extreme
% Value Distribution
% saps_alive=SAPS_SCORE(ihd==0); %ihd is logical vector where 1 = in hospital death
% [Nalive,xx]=hist(saps_alive,[0:MX_SAPS]);

% pdf_alive=evpdf(xx,parmhat(1),parmhat(2));

% %This fitting is not very good, but for the purpose of an example will do
% plot(xx,Nalive./sum(Nalive));hold on;grid on;plot(xx,pdf_alive,'r')
