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 …

Simone Spolaor recipient of EUSFLAT 2020 best PhD thesis award

My former PhD student, Simone Spolaor, was awarded by EUSFLAT for the best 2020 PhD thesis on fuzzy logic. Prof. Daniela Besozzi (Simone’s main advisor) and me are incredibly proud of this achievement. Simone’s thesis, titled “Fuzzy Logic for the modeling and simulation of complex systems”, is an investigation about moving back and forth from …

New paper: unsupervised learning for medical images analysis

We recently published a new paper on Journal of Supercomputing. The article focuses on an approach that combines automatic feature extraction and unsupervised learning for the analysis of medical images. The idea is to extract (long) vectors of Haralick features for each pixel, and use that information to train a Self-Organizing Map: similar pixels will …

PhD position on explainable AI systems for biomedical decision support

Some weeks ago I have been awarded with an EAISI Startup Package, a grant provided by the Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute funding a PhD student position. The project that was funded — and that will be the topic of the PhD student — revolves around the data-driven development of decision support systems in biomedical …
