Predictive Medicine and Deep Learning

NEW PUBLICATION – Predictive Medicine for Salivary gland tumours identification through Deep Learning is the title of the article published by M.O.D.A.L. on IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics.

This research work presents and discusses a Deep Learning-based framework for automatic segmentation and classification of salivary gland tumours. Furthermore, we propose an explainable segmentation learning approach supporting the effectiveness of the proposed framework through a per-epoch learning process analysis and the attention map mechanism. The proposed framework was evaluated with a collected CT dataset of patients with salivary gland tumours. Experimental results show that our methodology achieves significant scores on both segmentation and classification tasks.

AI and COVID-19

NEW PUBLICATION – The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Fighting the COVID-19 Pandemic is the title of the article published by M.O.D.A.L. on Information Systems Frontiers, Springer.

Here we analyze and discuss how AI can support us in facing the ongoing pandemic. Despite the numerous and undeniable contributions of AI, clinical trials and human skills are still required. Even if different strategies have been developed in different states worldwide, the fight against the pandemic seems to have found everywhere a valuable ally in AI, a global and open-source tool capable of providing assistance in this health emergency. A careful AI application would enable us to operate within this complex scenario involving healthcare, society and research.

AI and Healthcare

NEW PUBLICATION – Artificial intelligence and healthcare: Forecasting of medical bookings through multi-source time-series fusion is the title of the article published by M.O.D.A.L. on Information Fusion, Elsevier.

This paper presents and discusses a multi-source time series fusion and forecasting framework relying on Deep Learning. By combining weather, air-quality and medical bookings time series through a feature compression stage which preserves temporal patterns, the prediction is provided through a flexible ensemble technique based on machine learning models and a hybrid neural network. The proposed system is able to predict the number of bookings related to a specific medical examination for a 7-days horizon period. To assess the proposed approach’s effectiveness, we rely on time series extracted from a real dataset of administrative e-health records provided by the Campania Region health department, in Italy.
