In recent years, the use of deep learning (DL) models has attracted significant attention in healthcare domain
due to its ability to provide far accurate insights than other machine learning-based techniques. Although DL models have different architectures, the underlying concepts that describe the properties and relations are similar and could benefit from an ontology-based representation to enable sharing and reuse.

Student cohort

Single Semester
Double Semester


This project aims to extend an existing ontology-based platform for sharing and reuse of existing deep learning models to enable novice researchers to download and run DL models on their mobile phones using real-time sensor data, e.g. the mobile phone's accelerometer data.
