Emiel Deprost, Jeroen Van Der Donckt, Vic Degraeve and Gilles Vandewiele from team PreDiCT (together with Gertjan Demulder from team KNoWS) achieved the 11th position in the recent BirdCLEF 2022 competition on Kaggle, resulting in a gold medal.
The goal of the competition was to create a model that can predict whether or not certain birds occur in provided soundscape recordings. Such a model allows for bioacoustic monitoring, a cost-effective strategy for studying endangered bird populations.
The aim of Sofie Van Hoecke’s keynote is to gain more insight into the context, profile and lifestyle of people in order to identify triggers and behaviors linked to stress, depression and/or migraines. Identifying these triggers allows the people to make adaptations to their lifestyle to improve their health. To do so, data-driven and knowledge-driven AI approaches are combined to design a health management solution that enables the shift from subjective self-reporting towards objective continuous monitoring, empowering both patients and clinicians. To increase adoption of such AI models in clinical practice, and eliminate the risk of using these models for clinical decision support, we need to shift towards explainable and trustworthy AI.

Tech showcase on using hybrid AI to detect migraine triggers and support patients
Many people regularly suffer from migraines. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to determine where the migraine comes from, or what triggers the migraine. Is it getting better with exercise or on the contrary? This demo shows how AI can help to accurately identify your user behavior and detect your migraine triggers. To do so, we designed a mobile health application that, accompanied with a wearable, machine learning and AI models, automatically learns the user behavior, type of migraine and potential migraine triggers. Patients and their doctors are currently evaluating this app and accompanying dashboards within a longitudinal clinical trial at the Ghent University Hospital to get a better view on the context in which they get headaches and optimize migraine management.

This special details AI research in Health and Society, and more specifically the PreDiCT research within the mBrain project on AI on wearables and context data for improved and personalized migraine management.
In a year in which public health is high on the agenda, science magazine Eos, in collaboration with research institute imec and Ghent University, is devoting a special issue to health and technology, with three contributions from PreDiCT.
The Eos special has three parts. The first is about prevention. Thanks to sensors, digital doubles that collect all our medical data and personalized medicines, we can detect and prevent more diseases than ever before. Part two focuses on therapy. New AI models allow doctors to design more efficient treatments, tailored to the patient. The final part focuses on care and how robots can lend a mechanical hand, and investigates the most pressing question of the moment: how can we overcome infectious diseases?
The contributions from our PreDiCT team focus on our research on migraine management using wearables, our research on personalized antibiotics therapy in the intensive care, and our vision on the future of AI for health. Read here this latter contribution (in Dutch).
