Event description

Description

The workshop aims to bring together neuroscientists and data scientists interested in exploring dementia related diagnosis with technological and behavioural data.

All trials aimed at slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have failed. One of the main reasons for this universal failure is the application of interventions too late in the disease process, when people already have dementia and irreversible brain damage. As such, the identification of AD in its very earliest, pre-dementia, stages is a top research priority. The workshop will cover novel methodologies in data capture and analytics for early Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis, including text and image analysis, mobile technologies and sensing data and virtual gaming. A number of talks will be given by researchers both in data science and neurology.

The workshop is being held as part of the Project “Early Alzheimer's Disease Diagnostics Through Outdoor Navigation Sensing”. Seed funded by The Alan Turing Institute, this project explores the use of mobile devices to support the diagnostics of Alzheimer's disease stages. The workshop is organised by Dennis Chan, Cecilia Mascolo and Sandra Servia from the University of Cambridge, and Terry Lyons from the University of Oxford.
