Book Title: Deep Learning Techniques for Biomedical and Health Informatics

Scope of the book

Biomedical and Health Informatics is an emerging field of research at the intersection of information science, computer science, and health care. Health care informatics and analytics is a new era that brings tremendous opportunities and challenges due to easily available plenty of biomedical data for further analysis. The aim of healthcare informatics is to ensure the high-quality, efficient healthcare, better treatment and quality of life by efficiently analyzing of abundant biomedical, and healthcare data including patient’s data, electronic health records (EHRs) and lifestyle. Earlier, it was common requirement to have a domain expert to develop a model for biomedical or healthcare, however, recent advancements in representation learning algorithms (deep learning techniques) allow to automatically learn the pattern and representation of the given data for the development of such model. Deep learning methods with multiple level of representation in which at each level the system learn raw to higher abstract level representation. Deep learning based algorithms has demonstrated great performance to a variety of areas including computer vision, image processing, natural language processing, speech recognition, video analysis, biomedical and health informatics etc. Deep learning approaches such as neural networks, deep belief network, convolutional neural network, deep auto-encoder, and deep generative networks have emerged as powerful computational models. These have shown significant success in dealing with massive data for large number of applications due to their capability to extract complex hidden features and learn efficient representation in unsupervised setting.
