  • Post category:Balladeer

The Balladeer project continues to make progress thanks to the 67 children who have visited us in recent months Lucentia's #Balladeer project, which aims to diagnose and treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (#ADHD), has reached a significant milestone by successfully completing 67 tests with children between 6 and 18 years old through its dedicated #laboratory. It was during the last week that the 60 tests were passed. In fact, it is expected that by the end of this month 70 #children and #adolescents will have passed through our laboratory located at the University Institute for Research in Computer Science (IUII) of the University of Alicante. Balladeer focuses on laying the foundations for future interventions in person-centred #intelligent #extendedreality #intelligent #environments. Its main focus lies in the study of brain activity and its evolution, using a platform that combines #BigData and #ArtificialIntelligence (AI) analysis. During the tests, participating children are subjected to a series of activities designed in the format of #videogames to assess their cognitive and emotional performance. Using…

Artificial intelligence and breast cancer

  • Post published:2 de August de 2023

Artificial intelligence has achieved a milestone in the early detection of #breastcancer, significantly improving the accuracy of screening and #mammograms. A recent Swedish study has revealed that the application of #AI algorithms to mammogram images has increased the detection of cancerous breast tumours in women by 20%. According to the research, carried out by health and technology experts, artificial intelligence has been shown to be highly effective in the early identification of lesions and tumours in mammograms. The results of this study have been published in the scientific journal The Lancet Oncology, highlighting the potentially revolutionary impact of this technology on effective and efficient #detection compared to the current method of double reading by two radiologists. The study was conducted on a sample of 80,000 Swedish women. The data obtained show that the use of artificial intelligence has enabled the identification of smaller tumours at earlier stages, increasing the chances of successful treatment and reducing the mortality rate associated with this disease. One obstacle that society tends to put…
