Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the growth of the world’s population and the increasing demand for human health, the diagnosis of a large number of patients has placed great pressure on public health institutions. For some diseases, it is difficult to diagnose them quickly and accurately. In recent years, artificial intelligence technologies have been developing quickly and have seen successful applications in many areas. Inspired by artificial intelligence technologies, intelligent diagnosis technologies (e.g., medical image recognition, brain–computer interface, neuro-feedback) could help to diagnose some diseases quickly and accurately. To promote the development of intelligent diagnosis technologies, this Special Issue will focus on various new technologies and methods that could help to improve the performance of intelligent diagnosis. In particular, this Special Issue welcomes contributions on topics including but not limited to:

  • Medical imaging analysis and diagnosis methods;
  • Machine learning algorithms for medical diagnosis;
  • Deep learning methods for medical diagnosis;
  • Brain–computer interface technologies for medical applications;
  • Neuro-feedback technologies for medical diagnosis;
  • Applications of various intelligent technologies in medical diagnosis;
  • Review/survey articles.

COVID-19 is a profoundly contagious pandemic that has taken the world by storm and has afflicted different fields of life with negative effects. It has had a substantial impact on education which is evident from the transition from Face-to-Face (F2F) teaching to online mode of education and the rigid implementation of lockdown across the globe. This study examines the factors impacting the performance of teachers during the lockdown period of COVID-19 using various feature selection algorithms and Artificial Intelligence techniques. In this paper, we have proposed a novel multilevel feature selection for the prediction of the factors affecting the teachers’ satisfaction with online teaching and learning in COVID-19. The proposed multilevel feature selection is composed of the Fast Correlation Based Filter (FCBF), Mutual Information (MI), Relieff, and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) feature selection. The performance of the proposed feature selection approach is evaluated through the teachers’ benchmark dataset. We used a range of measures like accuracy, precision, f-measure, and recall to evaluate the performance of the proposed approach. We applied different machine learning approaches (SVM, LGBM, and ANN) with the proposed multilevel feature selection technique. The performance of the proposed approach is also compared with existing feature selection algorithms, and the results show the improvement in the performance of feature selection in terms of accuracy, precision, recall, and F-Measure. Proposed feature selection provides more than 80% accuracy with Light Weight Gradient Boosting Machine (LGBM). Full article

Autoregression with exogenous input (ARX) is a widely used model to estimate the dynamic relationships between neurophysiological signals and other physiological parameters. Nevertheless, biological signals, such as electroencephalogram (EEG), arterial blood pressure (ABP), and intracranial pressure (ICP), are inevitably contaminated by unexpected artifacts, which may distort the parameter estimation due to the use of the L2 norm structure. In this paper, we defined the ARX in the Lp (p ≤ 1) norm space with the aim of resisting outlier influence and designed a feasible iteration procedure to estimate model parameters. A quantitative evaluation with various outlier conditions demonstrated that the proposed method could estimate ARX parameters more robustly than conventional methods. Testing with the resting-state EEG with ocular artifacts demonstrated that the proposed method could predict missing data with less influence from the artifacts. In addition, the results on ICP and ABP data further verified its efficiency for model fitting and system identification. The proposed Lp-ARX may help capture system parameters reliably with various input and output signals that are contaminated with artifacts. Full article

This study describes a method for classifying electrocorticograms (ECoGs) based on motor imagery (MI) on the brain–computer interface (BCI) system. This method is different from the traditional feature extraction and classification method. In this paper, the proposed method employs the deep learning algorithm for extracting features and the traditional algorithm for classification. Specifically, we mainly use the convolution neural network (CNN) to extract the features from the training data and then classify those features by combing with the gradient boosting (GB) algorithm. The comprehensive study with CNN and GB algorithms will profoundly help us to obtain more feature information from brain activities, enabling us to obtain the classification results from human body actions. The performance of the proposed framework has been evaluated on the dataset I of BCI Competition III. Furthermore, the combination of deep learning and traditional algorithms provides some ideas for future research with the BCI systems. Full article
