Machine Learning per a Dispositius Mèdics

  • per

Medical devices containing a machine learning algorithmic component, e.g. for diagnosis, have a huge market and health potential. But getting the approval to sell a medical device is possible only after a thorough process of certification. For this, the particularities of statistical learning need to be taken into account as soon as possible in the device design. Otherwise, the risk of getting trapped in the certification process with suboptimal -viability killing- components is just too high. In this post we describe good practices for machine learning development and operationalization within medical devices, driven from our experience at PickleTech.

Data Science for Emergency medicine

Data Science for Emergency Medicine

  • per

In Emergency Medicine, decisions need to be made fast, and with a limited view on the patient’s health status. While the time urgency is imperative, in Emergency Medicine not all the decision outcomes are visible immediately.  Actually, some may take quite some time to show up, turning feedback and learning processes into a challenge. Limited resources impose in addition a very severe constraint, which makes Emergency Medicine too many times a complex resource optimization problem in nature. We discuss here how Data Science has the potential to improve Emergency Medicine, focusing on some of the opportunities for such a complex context.

Multimodal AI for Brain Disorders

  • per

The diagnosis and care processes for brain conditions such as depression or dementia are complex, involve multiple tests, data types and specialists; and they are, in some cases, very dependent on the subjective ability of the patient to report on their condition. Some of these challenges have become at the same time an opportunity to improve the healthcare processes by leveraging AI.

Multimodal Machine Learning solutions can assist specialists and provide them with new tools and insights to make the healthcare pathway more efficient and objective. In this post, we introduce one of the projects we are developing at PickleTech focused on such improvements: HALO. Starting from a cohort of elite athletes, we leverage multimodal AI and the development of biomarkers, aiming to provide athletes and preparation teams with objective measures of their mental health.

Medical Accelerator Data Science

  • per

Particle accelerators have a direct impact on society through several of their applications in medicine. With the advancement of accelerator science, new techniques for the treatment of cancer and diagnosis of various diseases have provided major steps forward in healthcare during the last decades. But particle accelerators are hi-tech machines with a challenging operation. In this post, we describe how Data Science solutions help automating their operation and optimizing the performance of such fascinating facilities.
