An Application for Electroencephalogram Mining for Epileptic Seizure Prediction



A computational framework to support seizure predictions in epileptic patients is presented. It is based on mining and knowledge discovery in Elec-troencephalogram (EEG) signal. A set of features is extracted and classification techniques are then used to eventually derive an alarm signal predicting a coming seizure. The epileptic patient may then take steps in order to prevent accidents and social exposure.
