We present in this paper an adaptive security model for Multi-agent systems. A security meta-model has been developed in which the traditional role concept has been extended. The new concept incorporates the need of both security management as used by role-based access control (RBAC) and agent functional behaviour in agent-oriented Software Engineering(More)
This paper focuses on the problem of representing, in a meaningful way, the knowledge involved in the HealthAgents project. Our work is motivated by the complexity of representing Electronic Healthcare Records in a consistent manner. We present HADOM (HealthAgents Domain Ontology) which conceptualises the required HealthAgents information and propose(More)
AIMS To evaluate the accuracy of single-voxel Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy ((1)H MRS) as a non-invasive diagnostic aid for paediatric brain tumours in a multi-national study. Our hypotheses are (1) that automated classification based on (1)H MRS provides an accurate non-invasive diagnosis in multi-centre datasets and (2) using a protocol which increases(More)
Mobile health (m-health) apps can bring health prevention and promotion to the general population. The main purpose of this article is to analyze different m-health apps for a broad spectrum of consumers by means of three different experiences. This goal was defined following the strategic documents generated by the main prospective observatories of(More)
The current challenge in automatic brain tumor classification based on MRS is the improvement of the robustness of the classification models that explicitly account for the probable breach of the independent and identically distributed conditions in the MRS data points. To contribute to this purpose, a new algorithm for the extraction of discriminant MRS(More)
Nursing homes usually host large accounts of persons with different levels of dementia. Detecting dementia process in early stages may allow the application of mechanisms to reduce or stop the cognitive impairment. Our ultimate objective is to demonstrate that the use of persuasive techniques may serve to motivate these subjects and induct re-learning(More)
The incorporation of new biomedical technologies in the diagnosis and prognosis of cancer is changing medicine to an evidence-based diagnosis. We summarize some studies related to brain tumour research in Europe, based on the metabolic information provided by in vivo Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) and transcriptomic profiling observed by DNA(More)
A distributed decision support system involving multiple clinical centres is crucial to the diagnosis of rare diseases. Although sharing of valid diagnosed cases can facilitate later decision making, possibly from geographically different centres, the released information could reveal patient privacy if it is not properly protected. Clinical centres may(More)
New biomedical technologies enable the diagnosis of brain tumours by using non-invasive methods. HealthAgents is a European Union-funded research project that aims to build an agent-based distributed decision support system (dDSS) for the diagnosis of brain tumours. This is achieved using the latest biomedical knowledge, information and communication(More)
