IEC 2023 | AI advancements in epilepsy diagnosis and management

Phil Tittensor, RNMH, MSc, The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, Wolverhampton, UK, discusses the potential application of artificial intelligence (AI) in epilepsy diagnosis and management. An AI system currently in development analyzes movement on video to differentiate seizures from sleep parasomnias and other non-epileptic attacks during sleep. The goal is to adapt this technology for use when patients are awake and mobile. Another potential AI application is in seizure warnings, aiming to extend the prediction period from seconds/minutes to hours/days. This system would consider triggering factors, circadian rhythms, and physiological changes to provide patients with a risk score on an application, allowing them to take necessary precautions. These developments aim to improve seizure detection and enhance the quality of life for epilepsy patients. This interview took place at the International Epilepsy Congress (IEC) 2023 in Dublin, Ireland.
