In the Media: Research Project IntelligentCare in “90 Segundos de Ciência”

Mário Gaspar da Silva, researcher under the CMU Portugal Large Scale Collaborative project IntelligentCare at Instituto Superior Técnico I INESC ID, was interviewed by the “90 Segundos de Ciência” Podcast on Antena 1. 

The project is developing a system capable of predicting the health progression of patients with multimorbidity (MM), which is characterized by the presence of multiple chronic diseases in a single patient, such as diabetes, hypertension, or heart failure.

Upon knowing the patient’s medical history in detail, this system will be able to define with greater precision the evolution of the disease.

“Our work focuses primarily on the analysis of information collected from patients and their clinical history over the past decades, which is recorded in the hospital’s clinical records. From this information, we will infer patterns that allow us to predict the clinical outcome for each patient currently under treatment,” explains Mário Gaspar da Silva. 

With this system, healthcare professionals will be able to predict how the health status of a patient who visits the emergency room or is seen in a medical appointment will evolve. 

The project’s goal is to improve the quality of life of these patients while finding solutions to contribute to the sustainability of the Healthcare System. 

The project is being led by Hospital da Luz Learning Health, in collaboration with Priberam Informática, Instituto Superior Técnico I ISR Lisboa, INESC ID and CMU Heinz College.

In the Media: Interview with Ricardo Vilaça (AIDA Project) – “90 Segundos de Ciência”

Ricardo Vilaça, researcher at INESC TEC and Universidade do Minho, was interviewed by 90 Segundos de Ciência about the CMU Portugal Large Scale Collaborative project AIDA. This research project, designed to revolutionize 5G Risk management, is  led by the company Mobileum in collaboration with INESC TECUniversidade do Minho and the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University.

The project aims at improving a platform used by Mobileum for integral risk management in companies. This platform ensures revenue, corporate conditions and fraud control for companies. Thanks to the newest version of the platform, developed by AIDA, companies will be able to collect and monitor data in an highly flexible way, with real-time guarantees, security and reliability.

Today, the platform is fully deployed in physically collocated servers, either on-premises or in the cloud. With AIDA, data collection, monitoring, and even actuation phases should be prepared to run in diverse hardware architectures outside the platform’s owner’s physical or even administrative control.
