'Best paper award' at AIME 2022
Miro Schleicher has received the Marco Ramoni best paper award at the 20th Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME) conference for his paper 'When can I expect the mHealth user to return? Prediction meets time series with gaps' (Miro Schleicher, Rüdiger Pryss, Winfried Schlee and Myra Spiliopoulou).
This work is within the frame of the UNITI project that encompasses machine learning methods for choosing the best treatment for each tinnitus patient. Treatments have an mHealth component, which assists the users towards self-empowerment and daily management of their disease. However, mHealth apps demand self-discipline; some users give up or interact very irregularly. The proposed method learns from the data of each user and from the absence of data, and it predicts if and when a user will start interacting again with the app.
