Diet monitoring is an important component of interventions
in type 2 diabetes, but is time-intensive and often inaccurate. To address this issue, we describe an approach to monitor diet automatically, by analyzing fluctuations in glucose
after a meal is consumed. In particular, we evaluate three
standardization techniques (baseline correction, feature normalization, and model personalization) that can be used to
compensate for the large individual differences that exist in
food metabolism. Then, we build machine learning models

RTip is a tool to quantify plant root growth velocity using high-resolution microscopy image sequences at sub-pixel accuracy. The fully automated RTip tracker is designed for high-throughput analysis of plant phenotyping experiments with episodic perturbations. RTip is able to auto-skip past these manual intervention perturbation activity, i.e. when the root tip is not under the microscope, the image is distorted or blurred. RTip provides the most accurate root growth velocity results with the lowest variance (i.e.

The ubiquitous presence of non-stationarities in the EEG signals significantly perturb the feature distribution thus deteriorating the performance of Brain Computer Interface. In this work, a novel method is proposed based on Joint Approximate Diagonalization (JAD) to optimize stationarity for multiclass motor imagery Brain Computer Interface (BCI) in an information theoretic framework. Specifically, in the proposed method, we estimate the subspace which optimizes the discriminability between the classes and simultaneously preserve stationarity within the motor imagery classes.

The signatures of swallowing vary depending on the volume of bolus swallowed. Among existing instrumental methods, cervical auscultation (CA) captures the acoustic signatures of the swallow sound. Although many features present in the literature can characterize volumes of swallow using CA, they require manual annotations of the different components in the sound.

Early detection of mental fatigue and changes in vigilance could be used to initiate neurostimulation to treat patients suffering from brain injury and mental disorders. In this study, we analyzed electrocorticography (ECoG) signals chronically recorded from two non-human primates (NHPs) as they performed a cognitively demanding task over extended periods of time. We employed a set of biomarkers to identify mental fatigue and a gradient boosting classifier to predict the performance outcome, seconds prior to the actual behavior response.
