2:00 PM CASE STUDY: Using Neural Networks and Deep Learning to Detect and Predict Epileptic Seizures
Sudden epileptic seizures are debilitating and often have a disproportional impact on the quality of life. Even if the event is likely to happen once a year, the sudden onset, without prior warning makes it challenging to live with. In collaboration with two large hospitals, we have been investigating if recent advances in AI can help identify and predict these seizure events. Our goal is to be able to achieve it using a wearable device. This presentation will discuss early results, and more broadly the potential and limits of AI in the context of healthcare.
