Workshop Computational Intelligence in Healthcare

Improving access and delivery of health care is a very actual topic in many countries. In order to meet the challenges posed by growing medical costs, aging population and limited resources, new technologies, new methods and new ways of working are being developed. Healthcare is a multi-faceted domain, and incorporates, amongst others, advanced clinical decision making, remote monitoring, healthcare logistics, operational excellence and modern information systems.

Computational intelligence provides considerable promise for advancing many aspects of healthcare practice, including clinical as well as administrative and management aspects. During the workshop, presentations and tutorials will be given regarding the solutions offered by computational intelligence for healthcare applications. The two-day workshop forms part of a summer school. The topics discussed include computational intelligence advances in:

  • image processing and medical computing
  • eldercare
  • medical decision support
  • smart health assistant systems
  • reducing high-dimensional healthcare data
