The Client : Javna agencija za raziskovalno dejavnost RS
Project type: Bilateral projects
Project duration: 2016 - 2017
  • Description

The goal of the project is development of intelligent system that can improve detection of human cognitive and behavior disorders. Example is dementia - the loss of intellectual functions, accompanied with personality disturbances (its most common form is the Alzheimer disease) and deterioration of individuals quality of personal and professional life. Through the last decades, an abundance of medical data was gathered about dementia. These data include multimedia objects (images, sound, etc.), temporal data and time-series, and text documents; their analyses require state-of-the-art methods from the fields of data analysis. The expected project contributions include a prototype of the prediction system for analysis of disorders that will be generalized for several related health problems (such as Brain ischemia, Brain haemorrhagia, Brain tumors, Neurodegenerative disorders etc.) and evaluating the prototype on the available dementia data acquired from the Neurological (Novi Sad) and Oncological institute (Ljubljana).
