Most of a computer scientist's production can go uncounted if a standard bibliographic service is used.
This paper presents ST-Guide, a state/transition approach to the representation of computer interpretable clinical guidelines for primary and secondary care. Details of the representation language, which is based on finite state machines, and the execution model are presented. We claim that because it is geared towards primary care clinical guidelines,… (More)
This paper describes an approach used in the 2012 Probabilistic Automata Learning Competition. The main goal of the competition was to obtain insights about which techniques and approaches work best for sequence learning based on different kinds of automata generating machines. This paper proposes the usage of n-gram models with variable length. Experiments… (More)
Even with emerging technologies, such as Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) systems, understanding how our brains work is a very difficult challenge. So we propose to use a data mining technique to help us in this task. As a case of study, we analyzed the brain's behaviour of blind people and sighted people in a spatial activity. There is a common belief that… (More)
This work presents the ST-Audit system that audits a patient record for conformance to a particular clinical guideline. The system uses ST-Guide which models a guideline as a set of states and transitions. The audit system tries to find a path in the state/transition diagram that corresponds to the actions taken by the physician, taking into consideration… (More)
