About this Event




Epilepsy is a common and serious neurological disorder, characterized by recurrent seizures, affecting over 60 million people worldwide. The inherent unpredictability of seizures is a significant factor contributing to the risk of injury, psycho-social disability, and mortality. In these cases, the quality of life impairment compares unfavourably with other chronic illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes or heart disease, and the uncertainty of seizure occurrence is a major component of this impairment. New methods for epilepsy treatments, therapy titration and seizure forecasting are desperately needed. Artificial intelligence technologies offer opportunities to automatically detect and even forecast epileptic seizures, which may allow new management strategies and pre-emptive therapies for seizure control that will increase patient safety and quality of life.
