KEDRI - the Knowledge Engineering and Discovery Research Institute of Auckland University of Technology was established in June 2002 and since then has been developing novel information processing methods, technologies and their applications to enhance discoveries across different areas of science and engineering. The methods are mainly based on principles from Nature, such as brain information processing, evolution, genetics, quantum physics.

Motivated by the dramatic rise of neurological disorders, we propose a SNN technique to model electroencephalography (EEG) data collected from people affected by Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and people diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). An evolving spatio-temporal data machine (eSTDM), named the NeuCube architecture, is used to analyse changes of neural activity across different brain regions. The model developed allows for studying AD progression and for predicting whether a patient diagnosed with MCI is more likely to develop AD.
