FBMI Success in Italy

Milan, Italy

Employees and PhD students of the Department of Biomedical Technology successfully participated on 2nd Milan ESICM’s Datathon and ESICM’s Big Datatalk organized by the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM).

The event—attended by Veronika Huttova, Lenka Horáková and Jakub Ráfl, from the Department of Biomedical Technology (KBT), Faculty of Biomedical Engineering—had the subtitle “Advancing Intensive Care Medicine with Artificial Intelligence” and focused on using big data and machine learning approaches to solve problems in intensive medicine and improve care of critically ill patients.

Datathon integrated clinicians and experts in biomedical data processing and analysis to address a problem in the field of intensive care medicine. The team, which included two KBTs members and which was led by an intensive care physician Jonathan Montomoli of the Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, focused on predicting patient outcome depending on hemoglobin concentration, oxygen saturation of arterial blood and partial pressure of arterial blood oxygen. The team finished 2nd in the final ranking.
