Leveraging AI to understand Maternal Smoking Before & During Pregnancy and it’s correlation with Risk of Sudden unexpected Infant Death

The correlation of SUID and Smoking

It’s quite obvious that smoking has it’s concerns, with pregnancy and without, and most people know that it’s not a good idea to smoke while you’re pregnant, cause it can be harmful to a babies health.

Developing a Statistical Analysis

To understand the relationship between the reported average number of cigarettes smoked per day and risk of SUID, I got to develop both a logistic regression model and a generalized additive model (GAM).


It’s been found that the risk of SUID increases by double, when the mother is smoking. That’s CRAZY!
