Behavioural symptoms and urinary tract infections (UTI) are among the most common problems faced by people with dementia. One of the key challenges in the management of these conditions is early detection and timely intervention in order to reduce distress and avoid unplanned hospital admissions. Using in-home sensing technologies and machine learning models for sensor data integration and analysis provides opportunities to detect and predict clinically significant events and changes in health…

Machine learning methods for detecting urinary tract infection and analysing daily living activities in people with dementia
Using Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and in-home sensory devices in combination with machine learning techniques to monitor health and well-being of people with dementia to provide more effective and preventative care and reduce preventable hospital admissions is discussed.
Validation of Noninvasive Body Sensor Network Technology in the Detection of Agitation in Dementia
A custom Body Sensor Network (BSN) was found to be a valid measure of agitation based on construct validity testing and secondary validation using non-parametric ANOVAs and shows promise from these pilot results.
Autonomous Unobtrusive Detection of Mild Cognitive Impairment in Older Adults
A signal processing approach equipped with a machine learning paradigm is implemented to process and analyze real-world data acquired using home-based unobtrusive sensing technologies to autonomously detect mild cognitive impairment in older adults.
AdaCare: Explainable Clinical Health Status Representation Learning via Scale-Adaptive Feature Extraction and Recalibration
AdaCare is developed, a general health status representation learning model that can capture the long and short-term variations of biomarkers as clinical features to depict the health status in multiple time scales and maintain a state-of-the-art performance in terms of prediction accuracy while providing qualitative interpretability.
Multitask learning and benchmarking with clinical time series data
This work proposes four clinical prediction benchmarks using data derived from the publicly available Medical Information Mart for Intensive Care (MIMIC-III) database, covering a range of clinical problems including modeling risk of mortality, forecasting length of stay, detecting physiologic decline, and phenotype classification.
Sensor-based assessment of mobility-related behavior in dementia: feasibility and relevance in a hospital context
The results show that it is possible to acquire objective data on individual motor behavior of patients suffering from dementia, and this information is essential for tailoring the therapeutic management of these patients in a hospital context.
Attend and Diagnose: Clinical Time Series Analysis using Attention Models
This paper utilizes attention models for clinical time-series modeling, thereby dispensing recurrence entirely, and develops the \textit{SAnD} (Simply Attend and Diagnose) architecture, which employs a masked, self-attention mechanism, and uses positional encoding and dense interpolation strategies for incorporating temporal order.
Learning to Diagnose with LSTM Recurrent Neural Networks
This first study to empirically evaluate the ability of LSTMs to recognize patterns in multivariate time series of clinical measurements considers multilabel classification of diagnoses, and establishes the effectiveness of a simple LSTM network for modeling clinical data.
Dipole: Diagnosis Prediction in Healthcare via Attention-based Bidirectional Recurrent Neural Networks
The proposed Dipole is an end-to-end, simple and robust model for predicting patients' future health information that employs bidirectional recurrent neural networks to remember all the information of both the past and the future visits, and it introduces three attention mechanisms to measure the relationships of different visits for the prediction.
