Last years have seen a worldwide lengthening of life expectancy [1] and, as a consequence, an increment of advanced assistive solutions for integrated care models. In this context, ICT can enhance home assistance services for elderly people and thus, the economical burden for health-care institutions. Indeed, recent studies report that 89% wish to stay at(More)
The advent of next-generation sequencing has dramatically decreased the cost for whole-genome sequencing and increased the viability for its application in research and clinical care. The Personal Genome Project (PGP) provides unrestricted access to genomes of individuals and their associated phenotypes. This resource enabled the Critical Assessment of(More)
The CAGI-4 Hopkins clinical panel challenge was an attempt to assess state-of-the-art methods for clinical phenotype prediction from DNA sequence. Participants were provided with exonic sequences of 83 genes for 106 patients from the Johns Hopkins DNA Diagnostic Laboratory. Five groups participated in the challenge, predicting both the probability that each(More)
Like in other parts of the world, in Italy internet is an increasingly used source of diseases-related informations, used both by health professionals and by the patients. In recent years, besides the most common search engines, sanitary informations contained in video sharing sites have gained an increased influence, either in the search and in the choice(More)
Correct phenotypic interpretation of variants of unknown significance for cancer-associated genes is a diagnostic challenge as genetic screenings gain in popularity in the next-generation sequencing era. The Critical Assessment of Genome Interpretation (CAGI) experiment aims to test and define the state of the art of genotype-phenotype interpretation. Here,(More)
This paper proposes a novel system to estimate and track the 3D poses of multiple persons in calibrated RGBDepth camera networks. The multi-view 3D pose of each person is computed by a central node which receives the single-view outcomes from each camera of the network. Each single-view outcome is computed by using a CNN for 2D pose estimation and extending(More)
The Critical Assessment of Genome Interpretation (CAGI) experiment is the first attempt to evaluate the state-of-the-art in genetic data interpretation. Among the proposed challenges, Crohn disease (CD) risk prediction has become the most classic problem spanning three editions. The scientific question is very hard: can anybody assess the risk to develop CD(More)
