Outstanding! another option for advance warning of epilepsy attacks

Artificial intelligence could warn people with epilepsy of an imminent attack according to UniSydney researcher Nhan Duy Truong and colleagues. They used three epilepsy datasets to create a predictive algorithm that could be incorporated into a wearable device to give people subject to seizures up to 30 minutes warning of one. The AI’s predictive power could also improve as it acquired more data on individual users experience of the disease. Researchers at the University of Melbourne are thinking about a brain-implantable chip (CMM December 6 2017).
