Title: Data-intensive Knowledge Discovery from Brain Imaging of Alzheimer’s Disease Patients
Abstract: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease which is largely responsible for dementia in around 6% of the population aged 65 and above. The growing availability of human brain data generated by imaging techniques, such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), have resulted in an opportunity to apply data science approaches for the diagnosis of neurological disorders. The knowledge discovery process typically involves complex data workflows that combine pre-processing techniques, statistical methods, machine learning and data mining algorithms, post-processing and visualisation techniques. This talk presents specific research efforts in this direction and highlights some open issues and challenges that are typical of real-world applications of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
