In the Philippines, an academic thesis is named by the degree, such as bachelor/undergraduate thesis or masteral thesis. However, in Philippine English , the term doctorate is typically replaced with doctoral (as in the case of "doctoral dissertation"), though in official documentation the former is still used. The terms thesis and dissertation are commonly used interchangeably in everyday language yet it generally understood that a thesis refers to bachelor/undergraduate and master academic work while a dissertation is named for doctorate work.
Machine learning is playing pivotal role in developing automatic diagnostic solutions. For which, the focus remained to assist human experts in standardizing diagnosis of various diseases. However, differences in diagnostic results presented in the literature reflect the importance of general process development and refinement to link diseases with corresponding manifestations. This is only possible if the patients’ profile along with current symptoms becomes part of diagnostic process and contribute towards general rules development. This paper discusses the gaps between human experts and machine intelligence that need to be filled for a better development of self-learning medical consultant software. Furthermore, artificial intelligence based models can become virtual health worker at remote areas and can be used to collect enough data to predict unknown medical problems.
