Machine Learning for Medical Research

The state of the art AI technology has been playing significant role in medical fields. Recently, led by Prof Xiaohong Gao, Middlesex University is in partnership with several other institutions and NHS hospitals working on

  • AI in early detection of cancers (funded by CRUK),
  • AI in visualisation of HPV virus (funded by The Royal Society) and
  • AI in Pathology (funded by CRUK).

More information on these funded projects are at:

  • Endo.AI – Real time automated endoscopic detection of oesophageal squamous cell cancer in early and precancerous stages
  • Deep Visualisation – Visualisation of super resolution microscopy data with structural contents using deep learning techniques
  • PRISM – Machine Learning for Discovery of Pre-neoplastic signature in Mesothelioma

New EU-funded project NEAL: Neuromorphic Embodied Agents that Learn

The Neuromorphic Embodied Agents that Learn project (NEAL) is part of the The Human Brain Project funded by the EU. This project builds on our earlier Cell Assembly Robot (CABot) work and extends it. NEAL will translate the Java based fatiguing leaky integrate and fire neural model and system to PyNN, which in turn will be translated to the SpiNNaker and HICANN neuromorphic hardware. Additional details are available at http://www.cwa.mdx.ac.uk/NEAL/NEAL.html. The project members are:

EU funds project on inclusion with Middlesex University participation

Researchers from our department attracted funding from the EU through the call “ICT for smart and personalised inclusion” (Objective ICT-2013.5.3). The project title is: PersOnalized Smart Environments to increase Inclusion of people with DOwn’s syNdrome (POSEIDON).

The Middlesex University team is a multi-disciplinary team with including colleagues from other departments of our S&T School.  The main focus for our contribution will be on the creation of Context-Awareness services for the system to guide people with Down’s Syndrome to achieve their daily goals.  We will also contribute to part of the Human-Computer Interfaces aspects of the project, and to Standards.

The Project Partners are: Karde, Middlesex University, Fraunhofer, Tellu, Funka Nu, BIS, and Down’s Syndrome Associations from Norway, Germany and UK.

The project starts on the 1st of November 2013.
