A thesis on sleep that uses artificial intelligence
Alphanie Midelet’s thesis is on the subject of ” Treatment of obstructive sleep apnea with continuous positive airway pressure: study of remote monitoring data to understand the impact of treatment modifications and predict acute events “. This thesis is carried out at the ED ISCE (Ecole doctorale d’Ingénierie pour la santé, la Cognition et l’Environnement), in collaboration with the MIAI Grenoble Alpes and the cross-disciplinary program LIFE of the University Grenoble Alpes.
The objective of the young laureate is to develop real-time alert systems for the detection of acute events that can lead to pathologies more consequential than a heart attack. In the course of her thesis, which focuses on sleep apnea and notably mixes AI and health, Alphanie Midelet analyzes remote monitoring data from continuous positive airway pressure devices.
