Supporting research

The AI algorithms within the CergenX Wave are based on decades of research from the INFANT Research Centre (University College Cork, Ireland). The Centre has established itself as a world leader in the development of AI algorithms for the analysis of neonatal EEGs. This includes, for example, the development of a seizure detection algorithm, from early prototype to validation in an international, multi-centre clinical trial (Temko et al. 2011; Pavel et al. 2020; O'Shea et al. 2020).

The Centre has also been at the forefront of neonatal EEG neurophysiology, developing standards and guidelines for grading the EEG and showing how these grades relate to clinically appropriate metrics such as long-term neurodevelopmental outcome (Murray et al., 2016; O'Toole et al. 2023). In addition, the Centre has developed state-of-the-art AI grading algorithms for EEG background classification (Stevenson et al. 2013, Ahmed et al. 2016, Raurale et al., 2021, O'Sullivan et al., 2023). The expertise gained from these research projects has been instrumental in guiding the design, development, and application of the AI algorithm in the CergenX Wave.
