Modified Ant Colony Clustering Method in Long-term Electrocardiogram Processing

  title={Modified Ant Colony Clustering Method in Long-term Electrocardiogram Processing},
  author={Miroslav Bursa and Lenka Lhotsk{\'a}},
  journal={2007 29th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society},
The paper presents an application of a clustering technique inspired by ant colony metaheuristics. The paper addresses the problem of long-term (Holter) electrocardiogram data processing. Long-term recording produces a huge amount of biomedical data, which must be preprocessed prior to its presentation to the specialist. The paper also discusses relevant aspects improving the robustness, stability and convergence criteria of the method. The method is compared with well known clustering… CONTINUE READING
