Dr.-Ing. Uli Niemann
Guest Editor at Applied Sciences' special issue on Medical Data Mining
The open access journal Applied Sciences (ISSN: 2076-3417, IF 2,838) has a new special issue titled "Medical Data Mining: Latest Advances and Prospects," for which I serve as guest editor.
We are soliciting research articles and comprehensive reviews of innovative data mining methods and their application in medicine.
Topics of interest include:
* AI-based decision support for clinical diagnosis, treatment planning, and prediction of treatment outcomes.
* Patient phenotyping for personalized medicine.
* Explainable AI for clinical decision support.
* Knowledge discovery from data collected by smart/sensor-based medical devices
* Intelligent systems for treatment recommendations
And much more! Papers may be submitted from now until 30 September 2023. Please visit the special topic website.
