IWINACInternational Work-conference on the Interplay between Natural and Artificial Computation

IWINAC2013: Pre-Organized Session:

S06. Artificial Intelligence applied to medical aid

Chairperson: Daniel Ruiz

Informatics and life sciences are two disciplines that present a symbiotic relationship. On the  one hand, many strategies used in computing systems, especially in artificial intelligence, are based in biological principles; typical examples of these strategies are neural networks and genetic algorithms. On the other hand, we can find these computing strategies applied to biological and medical problems; for example in clinical decision support systems that aid doctors in the difficult task of medical diagnosis. This session is focused on the presentation of systems based on soft computing techniques that, in some way, help medical specialists (doctors, nurses, etc.) in their clinical tasks.
