Abstract Management of chronic diseases such as chronic heart failure (CHF) is a major problem in health care. A standard approach followed by the medical community is to have a committee of experts develop guidelines that all physicians should follow. These guidelines typically consist of a series of complex rules that make recommendations based on a patient's information. Due to their complexity, often the guidelines are ignored or not complied with at all. It is not even clear whether it is… 
An AI-Based Heart Failure Treatment Adviser System
TLDR
A heart failure treatment adviser system that automates the entire set of rules in the guidelines for heart failure management, based on answer set programming, a form of declarative programming suited for simulating human-style reasoning.
Improving adherence to heart failure management guidelines via abductive reasoning*
TLDR
It is shown how abductive reasoning can be deployed to find missing symptoms and conditions that the patient must exhibit in order for a treatment prescribed by a physician to work effectively.
PREMIER: Personalized REcommendation for Medical prescrIptions from Electronic Records
TLDR
A two-stage attention-based personalized medication recommender system called PREMIER which incorporates information from the EHR to suggest a set of medications and takes into account the interactions among drugs in order to minimize the adverse effects for the patient.
Reinforcement Learning for Clinical Decision Support in Critical Care: Comprehensive Review
TLDR
RL has been used to optimize the choice of medications, drug dosing, and timing of interventions and to target personalized laboratory values and has great potential for enhancing decision making in critical care.
Reinforcement Learning for Clinical Decision Support in Critical Care: Comprehensive Review (Preprint)
BACKGROUND Decision support systems based on reinforcement learning (RL) have been implemented to facilitate the delivery of personalized care. This paper aimed to provide a comprehensive review
Personalised Medicine in Critical Care Using Bayesian Reinforcement Learning
TLDR
Results show that the proposed clustering based Bayesian reinforcement learning method is able to cluster patient based on their treatment effects and provides better explainability and time-critical recommendation that are very important in a real ICU setting.
Justifications for Goal-Directed Constraint Answer Set Programming
Ethical and legal concerns make it necessary for programs that may directly influence the life of people (via, e.g., legal or health counseling) to justify in human-understandable terms the advice
Safe Medicine Recommendation via Medical Knowledge Graph Embedding
TLDR
Safe Medicine Recommendation (SMR) is the first to learn embeddings of a patient-disease-medicine graph for medicine recommendation in the world and jointly embeds diseases, medicines, patients, and their corresponding relations into a shared lower dimensional space.
A Case for Query-driven Predicate Answer Set Programming
TLDR
ASP should be sufficient for modeling human-style reasoning, because well-founded reasoning as well as cyclical reasoning can be both represented in ASP, permitting a wide-range of reasoning patterns to be modeled.
LEAP: Learning to Prescribe Effective and Safe Treatment Combinations for Multimorbidity
TLDR
This work proposes the LEAP (LEArn to Prescribe) algorithm to decompose the treatment recommendation into a sequential decision-making process while automatically determining the appropriate number of medications and incorporates external clinical knowledge into the design of the reinforcement reward to effectively prevent generating unfavorable drug combinations.

Knowledge Representation, Reasoning and Declarative Problem Solving
TLDR
Chitta Baral demonstrates how to write programs that behave intelligently by giving them the ability to express knowledge and reason about it and presents a language, AnsProlog, for both knowledge representation and reasoning, and declarative problem solving.
Clingo = ASP + Control: Preliminary Report
TLDR
By strictly separating logic and control programs, clingo 4 also abolishes the need for dedicated systems for incremental and reactive reasoning, like iclingo and oclingo, respectively, and its flexibility goes well beyond the advanced yet still rigid solving processes of the latter.
