The comparison of two time series and the extraction of subsequences that are common to the two is a complex data mining problem. Many existing techniques, like the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT), offer solutions for comparing two whole time series. Often, however, the important thing is to analyse certain regions, known as events, rather than the whole(More)
OBJECTIVES We present a framework specially designed to deal with structurally complex data, where all individuals have the same structure, as is the case in many medical domains. A structurally complex individual may be composed of any type of single-valued or multivalued attributes, including time series, for example. These attributes are structured(More)
The electroencephalograph (EEG) signal is one of the most widely used signals in the biomedicine field due to its rich information about human tasks. This research study describes a new approach based on i) build reference models from a set of time series, based on the analysis of the events that they contain, is suitable for domains where the relevant(More)
The focus of this chapter is to study feature extraction and pattern classification methods from two medical areas, Stabilometry and Electroencephalography (EEG). Stabilometry is the branch of medicine responsible for examining balance in human beings. Balance and dizziness disorders are probably two of the most common illnesses that physicians have to deal(More)
Gynaecological surgery is undergoing a process of constant change and therefore some of its complications as well. The incorporation of endoscopy has added a new dimension, with the rate of complications related to its complexity. Endoscopy has meant a great advance in surgery, and specifically in gynaecology, which benefits from two ways of approaching the(More)
Creating a reference model that represents a given set of time series is a relevant problem as it can be applied to a wide range of tasks like diagnosis, decision support, fraud detection, etc. In some domains, like seismography or medicine, the relevant information contained in the time series is concentrated in short periods of time called events. In this(More)
