Interview in “Die Presse” about our stroke project

Künstliche Intelligenz soll das Gehirn retten helfen” is the title of the article published on 9.December.2023 in Die Presse newspaper.
Hannes Perko from the encevis team, in interview with Gerald Stampfel from Die Presse, talked about our stroke-focused project, and how efficiency of patient triage can be improved with AI analysis of EEG data.
Digital version of the article can be also found on the website of Die Presse (DE).

encevis strives towards the next milestone!

Within the framework of newly funded FFG-project, encevis team is working on developing AI-powered algorithms specifically for children and adolescents with suspected or confirmed epilepsy.
Building on our existing expertise with automatic review and analysis of (long-term) EEG data recorded from adults, we are now striving towards extending our application by training and validating algorithms on the brain activity data of young patients.

Both healthy and pathological brain activity might look very different depending on age. The anatomical and functional architecture of the brain undergoes tremendous changes across the development. Some epileptic syndroms occur only (e.g. ESES = electrical status epilepticus in sleep) or predominantly (e.g. absence seizures) in young age. Moreover, epileptic discharges can negatively impact the maturation process, or even cause regressions. When training algorithms to automatically detect epileptic activity in EEG data of children, all these factors must be considered.

encevis team is very much excited to embrace this challange!

encevis on the DIO platform

Data Intelligence Offensive (DIO) – Verein zur Förderung der Datenwirtschaft – published an article (DE) describing functionality of encevis, and benefits of incorporating innvoative and AI-powered solutions to support clinicians in their everday work, for example in the epilepsy diagnosis domain.

This article is part of the Xplain-AI project of DIO, which presents and propagates the existing AI applications in an understandable and user-oriented way. encevis is delighted to be part of this initiative!
