Mood recognition in bipolar patients through the PSYCHE platform: Preliminary evaluations and perspectives
Conclusions: The PSYCHE platform could provide a viable decision support system in order to improve mood assessment in patient care. Evidences about the correlation between mood disorders and ANS dysfunctions were found and the obtained results are promising for an effective biosignal-based mood recognition.

A growth model of human papillomavirus type 16 designed from cellular automata and agent-based models
Conclusion: Through the specification of parameterized behavior rules for HPV16 that are simulated under the combined technique of cellular automata and agent-based models, the HPV life cycle can be simulated allowing for observations at different stages. The proposed model then can be used as a support tool in the investigation of HPV16, in particular (as part of our future work) to develop drugs as agents in the control of the HPV16 disease.

Understanding the nature of information seeking behavior in critical care: Implications for the design of health information technology
Conclusion: A process of local optimization drove the information seeking process: physicians utilized information that maximized their information gain even though it required significantly more cognitive effort. Implications for the design of health information technology solutions that seamlessly integrate information seeking activities within the workflow, such as enriching the clinical information space and supporting efficient clinical reasoning and decision-making, are discussed.

Automated generation of patient-tailored electronic care pathways by translating computer-interpretable guidelines into hierarchical task networks
Conclusion: The described methodology makes it possible to automatically generate patient-tailored care pathways, leveraging an incremental knowledge-driven engineering process that starts from the expert knowledge of medical professionals. The presented approach makes the most of the strengths inherent in both CIG languages and HTN planning and scheduling techniques: for the former, knowledge acquisition and representation of the original clinical protocol, and for the latter, knowledge reasoning capabilities and an ability to deal with complex temporal and resource constraints. Moreover, the proposed approach provides im...

Factors affecting the effectiveness of biomedical document indexing and retrieval based on terminologies
Abstract: Objective: The aim of this work is to evaluate a set of indexing and retrieval strategies based on the integration of several biomedical terminologies on the available TREC Genomics collections for an ad hoc information retrieval (IR) task.Materials and methods: We propose a multi-terminology based concept extraction approach to selecting best concepts from free text by means of voting techniques. We instantiate this general approach on four terminologies (MeSH, SNOMED, ICD-10 and GO). We particularly focus on the effect of integrating terminologies into a biomedical IR process, and the utility of using voting te...

Elicitation of neurological knowledge with argument-based machine learning
Conclusion: The paper demonstrates ABML's advantage in combining machine learning and expert knowledge. The accuracy of the system is very high with respect to the current state-of-the-art in clinical practice, and the system's knowledge base is assessed to be very consistent from a medical point of view. This opens up the possibility to use the system also as a teaching tool. (Source: Artificial Intelligence in Medicine)
