How machine learning is detecting seizures in people with traumatic brain injuries
By applying sensors, machine learning and energy harvesting technology, researchers at CSIRO, CSIRO’s Data61 and Australian medical device company Anatomics could prevent the development of seizure disorders in patients that have undergone decompressive surgery (craniectomy) through the creation of a data-driven and highly personalised treatment plan.
Designing trustworthy machine learning systems
Op-ed: Many methods have been developed to promote fairness, transparency and accountability in the predictions made by artificial intelligence and machine learning systems. A technical approach is often the focal point of these methodologies, however, to develop truly ethical machine learning systems that can be trusted by their users, it's important to supplement this with a human-centred approach.
