minedICE: A Knowledge Discovery Platform for Neurophysiological Artificial Intelligence

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6804)


In this paper we present the minedICE TM computer architecture and network comprised of neurological instruments and artificial intelligence (AI) agents. It’s called minedICE because data that is “mined” via IntraCortical Electroencephalography (ICE) located deep inside the human brain procures (mined) knowledge to a Decision Support System (DSS) that is read by a neurosurgeon located either at the bedside of the patient or at a geospatially remote location. The DSS system 1) alerts the neurosurgeon when a severe neurological event is occurring in the patient and 2) identifies the severe neurological event. The neurosurgeon may choose to provide feedback to the AI agent which controls the confidence level of the association rules and thereby teaches the learning component of minedICE.
