Survey of Machine Learning Techniques To Predict Heartbeat Arrhythmias

Abstract - Many works in biomedical computer science research use machine learning techniques to give accurate results. However, these techniques may not be feasible for real-time analysis of data pulled from live hospital feeds. In this project, different machine learning techniques are compared from various sources to find one that…

Model-Based Programming for Research Protocols

When implementing research protocols there is often a disconnect between what the researcher wants, and what the developer thinks they want. This can result in wasted effort and protracted development times. With a graphical representation of the protocol the discussion between developers and researchers can find these disconnects earlier in…

ReConnect:

Cigarette smoking remains the number one cause of preventable morbidity and mortality in the U.S.. developing novel, efficacious smoking cessation interventions that are accessible, scalable, and sustainable to smokers, especially among vulnerable populations (e.g., low SES), will make a significant public health impact. One of the most powerful, evidence-based behavioral…
