Weather, activity, sleep, stress data used to predict migraines

Migraine Alert by Second Opinion Health uses machine learning to analayze weather, activity, sleep, and stress, to determine if a user will have a migraine headache.

The company claims that the algorithm is effective after 15 episodes are logged. They have launched a multi patient study with the Mayo Clinic, in which subjects use a phone and a fitbit to log this lifestyle data. The goal is prediction, earlier treatment, and, hopefully, symptom reduction.  No EEG-derived brain activity data is incorporated into the prediction method.
