Researchers test Artificial Intelligence solution for near real-time classification of epileptic seizures

A team of researchers from INESC TEC and the University of Munich tested a solution to classify seizures, the main symptom of epilepsy, using infrared radar and 3D videos. The study presents an innovative approach, which is the first to consider near-real time classification from two second samples, showing the feasibility of a system to support diagnosis and monitoring process (based on action recognition) that uses deep learning; it allows distinguishing between frontal and temporal lobes seizures (the two most common classes of epilepsy), or non-epileptic events. The results of this research were recently published by Nature Scientific Reports.
