About this Research Topic
Technological progress in the areas of artificial intelligence, specifically in the field of Deep Learning and Neuro-inspired networks, allows today to obtain results that would once have been considered almost impossible. Specifically, the modern approaches of quantitative analysis of medical images (CT-scans, MRI, PET, SPECT, etc..) and biomedical signals (Photoplethysmography(PPG), Electrocardiography(ECG), ElectroEncephaloGraphy(EEG), etc..) allow to extract a considerable amount of data to be used for the implementation of numerous bio-engineering applications, ranging from the development of recent Radiomics algorithms for applications in the field of oncology, cardiology or neurology, to the definition of bio-inspired algorithms based on the study and analysis of physiological signals of human subjects for applications in the automotive sector such as ADAS systems, Robotic systems for industrial and medical applications, autonomous driving, etc.
The objective of this Research Topic is to collect scientific contributions that confirm the advantages inherent in the application of modern techniques of Deep Learning and Bio-inspired Neural algorithms in the analysis of medical images and biomedical signals for providing bio-engineering applications in different research areas with special focus in the robotic, medical and industrial fields. More in details, the target of this Research Topic is:
a) to provide a comprehensive overview of the most recent advanced bio-inspired neural pipelines for improving/proposing new and efficient solutions for particularly complex problems in the robotic, medical and industrial fields or ;
b) to investigate multimodal analysis of biomedical data, signals and images for medical, robotic and industrial applications.
The expected topics include, but are not limited to the following:
• Bio-inspired systems for Radiomics/Pathomics algorithms in medical oncology;
• Cancer dynamic mathematical modeling based on medical images/physiological signals;
