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…

New publications in June and July

Several Lucentia research colleagues have recently published two articles within the framework of the BALLADEER and AETHER-UA projects Lucentia researchers have just had two publications published in June and July. Both articles, although different from each other, are part of the Balladeer and Aether-UA projects. The first paper, entitled "A Data-Driven Methodology for Guiding the Selection of Preprocessing Techniques in a Machine Learning Pipeline", was presented at the 35th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering. In this #paper, Jorge García, Alejandro Maté and Juan Carlos Trujillo, propose a novel #methodology for improving the selection of #preprocessing techniques, both from the point of view of the #MachineLearning model and the characteristics of the data. The second article, entitled "Feature engineering of EEG applied to mental disorders: a systematic mapping study", has been published in the scientific journal Applied Intelligence. The authors, Sandra García, Jorge García, Miguel Ángel Teruel, Alejandro Maté and Juan Carlos Trujillo, through the review and analysis of more than 900 articles, present a #SystematicMappingStudy (SMS) focused…
