20th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME 2022)

14.06.2022 -

20th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME 2022), Halifax

The KMD team was present with two scientific contributions:

  •  'When can I expect the mHealth user to return? Prediction meets time series with gaps' by Miro Schleicher, Rüdiger Pryss, Winfried Schlee and Myra Spiliopoulou: the new machine learning method analyses the behaviour of users towards an mHealth app, learns from the absence of data and predicts if and when a user will start using the app again.
  •  'Discovering Instantaneous Granger Causalities in Non-stationary Categorical Time Series Data' by Noor Jamaludeen, Vishnu Unnikrishnan, André Brechmann, and Myra Spiliopoulou: the new machine learning method analyses the data of an auditory category learning experiment, and it identifies characteristic patterns that distinguish between learners and non-learners.

Myra Spiliopoulou, together with Panos Papapetrou (Univ Stockholm) also presented a tutorial on 'Machine learning for complex medical temporal sequences'. Her part was on 'Dealing with Missingness/Gaps'.

Tutorial Machine learning for complex medical temporal sequences

25.02.2021 -

In this tutorial, we focus on sequential forms of health-related data – spatial trajectories, panel data from longitudinal studies, time series signals (such as ECGs), event sequences (such as sequences containing EHR events) and mHealth data.  We elaborate on the questions that medical researchers and clinicians pose on those data, and on the instruments they use. We elaborate on what questions are asked with those instruments, on what questions can be answered from those data, on ML advances and achievements on such data, and on ways of responding to the medical experts’ questions about the derived models. Furthermore, we emphasize the need for interpretable and explainable models that can inspire trust and facilitate informed decision making. Towards this goal we elaborate on actionable models and counterfactual explanations for sequential medical data, and discuss how to apply them for the interpretation of black-box models, such as deep learning architectures.

Scientific Team Projects Winter Term 21/22

19.10.2021 -

This semester, the KMD lab is offering topics for teamprojects.

Goal of the teamprojects is to enable students in solving complex real tasks in teamwork. In doing so, they use and occasionally extend methods they already learned in their studies thus far. They are exposed to the data science challenges of business understanding, of data preparation and of communicating the results to an application expert.

The application deadline is Oct. 28, 12:00.
