Talk at Informatics for Health Conference 2017

I will present the latest outcome of the Doremi Project at the Informatics for Health Conference 2017.

The Informatics for Health will take place this year in Manchester and is organized by the European Federation for Medical Informatics Association (EFMI). The EFMI is the leading organisation in medical informatics in Europe and represents 32 countries. EFMI is organised as a non-profit organisation concerned with the theory and practice of Information Science and Technology within Health and Health Science in a European context.

In my talk i will present the Reasoning and Data Representation methods and models we used in the health and lifestyle support system – DOREMI.

The Abstract of the paper is:

Case-based reasoning and data interpretation is an artificial intelligence approach that capitalizes on past experience to solve current problems and this can be used as a method for practical intelligent systems. Case-based data reasoning is able to provide decision support for experts and clinicians in health systems as well as lifestyle systems. In this project we were focusing on developing a solution for healthy ageing considering daily activities, nutrition as well as cognitive activities. The data analysis of the reasoner followed state of the art guidelines from clinical
practice. Guidelines provide a general framework to guide clinicians, and require consequent background knowledge to become operational, which is precisely the kind of information recorded in practice cases; cases complement guidelines very well and helps to interpret them. It is expected that the interest in case-based reasoning systems in the health sciences is going to grow, as longer life expectancy forces a focus on health care.
