Statement about research interests and vision

Projects at QM

Projects at CSR City University (1989-2000)

Project at CSSE South Bank (1986-1989)

 

 

Projects at Queen Mary

PAMBAYESIAN (Patient Managed Decision-Support using Bayesian Networks) is a 3-year £1,538,497 EPSRC funded project awarded to Queen Mary (June 2017-May 2020) to develop a new generation of intelligent medical decision support systems.  Prof Fenton is the PI. The project is a collaboration between researchers from both the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) and clinical academics from the Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry (SMD). The project is also supported by digital health firms that have extensive experience developing patient engagement tools for clinical development (BeMoreDigital, Mediwise, Rescon, SMART Medical, uMotif,  IBM UK and Hasiba Medical). Details here.

CAUSAL-DYNAMICS ("Improved Understanding of Causal Models in Dynamic Decision-making") is a 3-year project (starting Jan 2017) at Queen Mary funded by a Leverhulme Trust Research Project Grant of £385,510. The project ultimately will lead to improved design and use of self-monitoring systems such as blood sugar monitors, home energy smart meters, and self-improvement mobile phone apps. It is a collaborative project, led by Professor Norman Fenton of the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, with co-investigators Dr Magda Osman (School of Biological and Chemical Sciences), Prof Martin Neil (School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science) and Prof David Lagnado (Department of Experimental Psychology, University College London). Details here.
