Best paper award at IEEE CIBCB 2022
Our manuscript “Predicting and Characterizing Legal Claims of Hospitals with Computational Intelligence: the Legal and Ethical Implications” was awarded as best paper at the 2022 IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (IEEE CIBCB).
The manuscript investigates the NHS data to determine under which circumstances the COVID pandemics caused an increment of legal claims against hospitals. The manuscript exploits Computational Intelligence (in particular, a combination of swarm intelligence and fuzzy clustering) to find patterns in hospitals data. On top of that, Chiara eviscerated the legal and ethical implications of decisions taken by the institutions to cope with the exceptional circumstances.
We are very grateful to the reviewers, who appreciated this unusual work, and the evaluation committee for this award.
