The seminar will take place in ICT-315
Our daily life is nowadays tremendously affected by the digital revolution. Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) are used for improving human health and services both at individual and population level. In particular, Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods and tools are progressively changing the way we are tackling healthcare related issues.
In this talk I, will address the issue of the abundance of heterogeneous data and knowledge in the context of the healthcare sector and the challenges that it raises. I will focus in particular on some multidisciplinary works related to bringing semantic technologies and AI based approaches that we are conducting to enable digital public health: from tackling pharmacovigilance issues using online forums and social networks through public health decision enabling thanks to the analysis of large call data records (CDR).
