M4D/MKLab of the Information Technologies Institute of CERTH is contributing to the research and development of novel AI technologies for health as part of the consortium of ALAMEDA under the European’s Research and Innovation Programme Horizon 2020.

ALAMEDA’s vision is to research and prototype the next generation of personalized AI healthcare support systems for people with brain diseases and disorders, specifically focusing on the needs of patients with Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and Stroke (PMSS). The project’s innovations will take advantage of new machine learning models, built upon lifestyle retrospective data as well as new streams of patient data that involve the monitoring of everyday activities, such as sleep behaviour and emotional status.

M4D/MKLab will coordinate activities relevant to Artificial Intelligence approaches, aiming the reinvention of the modern healthcare in order to reinforce personalized early risk prediction, prevention and intervention. Advances in machine intelligence have created powerful capabilities in algorithms that find hidden patterns in data, identify anomalies in “expected” patterns and associate similar patients/diseases/drugs based on common features. In healthcare, it is expected that Deep Learning will bring a disruption, paving the way to a paradigm shift in Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSSs), diagnosis and treatment selection.
