What topic/s covered in the meeting do you think were over-emphasized?
#Response DateResponse Text
1Jun 29, 2009 7:31 PMcomparison with seismic/financial prediction. certainly interesting to compare them with seizure prediction, but was too long.
2Jun 29, 2009 7:45 PMFinancial parts.
3Jun 29, 2009 8:46 PMMy views as an "outsider" : I was a little concerned with the talks on prediction that all claimed they were basically all working great - where are the "gold" standards? Its a difficulty issue but without dealing with it, people may not take ANY prediction talk seriously. It seems like a story that gets old after a while. Meanwhile, no one enters the competition. Also, there is disjoint between the "signal processing" task of "detecting" seizures and then how to "score" how well you did (which is fixing the problem with another problem)- and the actual use of that detected signal in a treatment system. Without closing the loop, I don't think is possible to evaluate (imperfect) detection systems in ANY meaningfull way. For example, because the "cost" of treatment is not accounted for. In this context, the VNS presentation stood out as a good example.
4Jun 29, 2009 8:46 PMPhysiological aspects
5Jun 29, 2009 9:32 PMInteresting, but FAR too much time, devoted to stockmarket/earthquate prediction
6Jun 30, 2009 6:19 AMearthquake prediction
7Jun 30, 2009 7:47 AMprediction in finance, earth quakes, ...
8Jun 30, 2009 8:44 AMI think there was a reasonable balance
9Jun 30, 2009 9:21 AMfinance & earthquakes
11Jun 30, 2009 5:28 PMNA
12Jun 30, 2009 5:37 PMNA
13Jun 30, 2009 8:00 PMMechanistic approaches to seizure prediction especially by non-clinicians, or groups working independently of clinicians.
14Jul 1, 2009 5:44 PMtoo narrow a focus on the statistical analysis of recorded data (noisy and imprecise) and the interpretation of those statistics
15Jul 2, 2009 1:43 AMNone.
16Jul 4, 2009 6:13 AM I should point out that we must consider the main objective of the workshop (seizure prediction); research groups are getting involved with other problems around seizure prediction without looking for the relationship between all the approaches and how they can converge.
17Jul 4, 2009 10:36 PMSeizure Prediction
18Jul 6, 2009 9:47 AMprediction in other complex systems (too much time devoted for this)
19Jul 6, 2009 8:34 PMNot having attended before, I didn't find cases of over-emphasis.
20Jul 7, 2009 1:04 AMNone
21Jul 7, 2009 4:20 PMprediction in related fields was over-emphasized
22Jul 8, 2009 12:28 PMOf course I understand folks want to talk about their research, but it seemed at times that topics strayed very far from seizure prediction (e.g. to earthquakes). There may be a connection, but it's not at all clear there is one. It would be best if all talks were focused exclusively on epilepsy, seizure prediction, and those fields (e.g. hardware, signal processing) that are enablers to these goals.
23Jul 8, 2009 7:50 PM?
24Jul 9, 2009 6:59 PMfinance and earth quakes
25Jul 10, 2009 5:36 AMNone. It was a great workshop for me.
26Jul 10, 2009 11:19 AMprediction in finance
27Jul 10, 2009 9:08 PMassessment of seizure detection algorithms
28Jul 22, 2009 2:05 PMNone, it was well-balanced.
29Jul 24, 2009 6:04 PMnone
30Jul 24, 2009 7:19 PMN/A
33Jul 28, 2009 11:10 PMDebate was a good concept but participants seemed to go through the motions rather than firmly and personally believing the position they were defending. Still a lot of good information was made available to the audience during the debate presentations.
34Jul 29, 2009 3:00 AMToo much biology;
