Machine Learning for matching in children's adoption in Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa (SCML)
Every year, in Portugal, several cases of interruption in the child adoption processes are reported. These interruptions cause a huge disturbance in the children involved and this project will address this problem with the objective of investigating an Intelligent Decision Support System (IDSS) capable of support decision-making in the child adoption process, namely in the matching of a child and the adoptive family.
Throughout the child adoption process, data is created and stored, such as details about the child, and records about the candidates for adoptive family. All these data have the potential to be studied with Machine Learning algorithms, searching for hidden or non-explicit insights that might be useful to support the caseworkers decision-making, creating an Intelligent Decision Support System (IDSS).
