Handbook of Deep Learning in Biomedical Engineering Book Review:

Deep learning (DL) is a method of machine learning, running over artificial neural networks, that uses multiple layers to extract high-level features from large amounts of raw data. DL methods apply levels of learning to transform input data into more abstract and composite information. Handbook for Deep Learning in Biomedical Engineering: Techniques and Applications gives readers a complete overview of the essential concepts of DL and its applications in the field of biomedical engineering. DL has been rapidly developed in recent years, in terms of both methodological constructs and practical applications. DL provides computational models of multiple processing layers to learn and represent data with higher levels of abstraction. It is able to implicitly capture intricate structures of large-scale data and is ideally suited to many of the hardware architectures that are currently available. The ever-expanding amount of data that can be gathered through biomedical and clinical information sensing devices necessitates the development of machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques such as DL and convolutional neural networks to process and evaluate the data. Some examples of biomedical and clinical sensing devices that use DL include computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), magnetic particle imaging, electroencephalography/magnetoencephalography (EE/MEG), optical microscopy and tomography, photoacoustic tomography, electron tomography, and atomic force microscopy. Handbook for Deep Learning in Biomedical Engineering: Techniques and Applications provides the most complete coverage of DL applications in biomedical engineering available, including detailed real-world applications in areas such as computational neuroscience, neuroimaging, data fusion, medical image processing, neurological disorder diagnosis for diseases such as Alzheimer’s, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), tumor prediction, and translational multimodal imaging analysis. Presents a comprehensive handbook of the biomedical engineering applications of DL, including computational neuroscience, neuroimaging, time series data such as MRI, functional MRI, CT, EEG, MEG, and data fusion of biomedical imaging data from disparate sources, such as X-Ray/CT. Helps readers understand key concepts in DL applications for biomedical engineering and health care, including manifold learning, classification, clustering, and regression in neuroimaging data analysis. Provides readers with key DL development techniques such as creation of algorithms and application of DL through artificial neural networks and convolutional neural networks. Includes coverage of key application areas of DL such as early diagnosis of specific diseases such as Alzheimer’s, ADHD, and ASD, and tumor prediction through MRI and translational multimodality imaging and biomedical applications such as detection, diagnostic analysis, quantitative measurements, and image guidance of ultrasonography. ~

Education and Technology Support for Children and Young Adults With ASD and Learning Disabilities Book Review:

Among the disabilities covered at the state and federal levels, autism and related conditions are a sharply growing diagnostic category among children and young adults. In education, administrators and practitioners working with affected learners are continually faced with confronting difficult problems such as getting adequate personnel training and choosing appropriate tools and techniques that best fit the specific needs of their students while at the same time satisfying their budget, technical resources, curriculum, and profile of the ASD population they serve. The choice of appropriate tools is especially complex due to the intrinsic connection between technical specifications, educational/therapeutic methods, and the wide variety of ASDs and related conditions. In this respect, tools chosen to support children may need to target those diagnosed not only with ASD but also with such co-morbidity conditions as attention deficit disorder. The instructional strategies and use of technology currently have room for improvement for online, hybrid, and face-to-face counseling settings. Also, an effective evaluation of educational technologies and tools would be fundamentally incomplete without a thorough understanding and assessment of the related special education practices as well as psychological and neurological issues specific for ASD and learning disabilities. Education and Technology Support for Children and Young Adults With ASD and Learning Disabilities provides an in-depth analysis on the use of available technology solutions, instructional design methods, and assessment techniques in the context of standards and regulations in classroom or counseling settings. The chapters contain theoretical analyses, vital practical information, and case studies that can function as guidelines for those involved in helping children and young adults with ASD or learning disabilities in online, hybrid, or face-to-face environments. While highlighting topics such as inclusive education, online gaming environments, assistive technologies, and cognitive development, this book is ideally intended for administrators, instructional technology specialists, special education faculty, counselors, instructional designers, course developers, social workers, and psychologists along with practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, and academicians interested in education and technology support for children and young adults with ASD and learning disabilities.
