A Wearable Chip to Predict Seizures

One of the toughest aspects of having epilepsy is not knowing when the next seizure will strike. A wearable warning system that detects pre-seizure brain activity and alerts people of its onset could alleviate some of that stress and make the disorder more manageable. To that end, IBM researchers say they have developed a portable chip that can do the job; they described their invention today in the Lancet ’s open access journal eBioMedicine . The scientists built the system on a mountain of brainwave data collected from epilepsy patients. The dataset, reported by a separate group in 2013 , included over 16 years of continuous electroencephalography (EEG) recordings of brain activity, and thousands of seizures, from patients who had had electrodes surgically implanted in their brains . Scientists at IBM Research Australia then used that dataset to train deep learning algor...
