Title: Deep learning for preterm infants’ movement analysis in RGB-D images



Monitoring preterm infants’ movement in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) is of primary importance for assessing infants' health status and motor/cognitive development. Nowadays, the monitoring still relies on qualitative and sporadic observation of infants’ movement by expert neonatologists, directly at the crib side. Beside being time-consuming, this may be prone to inaccuracies due to clinicians’ fatigue and susceptible to intra- and inter-clinician variability. A possible solution to attenuate these issues could be to develop an automatic video-based system for infants’ movement analysis. This would support clinicians in the monitoring process without hindering the actual clinical practices. In this talk, I will present our research in this field, moving from the design of the monitoring system to the deployment of our deep-learning solutions using single-board computer.
