Principal Investigator  
Principal Investigator's Name: Silvia Ciappelloni
Institution: OnePoint Group
Department: France
Proposed Analysis: Dear Commitee, I am an enthusiastic researcher with a PhD in Neurosciences (obtained in Italy at the Faculty of Medicine in Ancona) and 4 years of Postdoctoral fellowship at the Center Broca Nouvelle Aquitaine in Bordeaux, France. I was always interested in studying the mechanisms behind synaptic connections and the importance of interactions between neurons and astrocytes. I had the chance to work in international highly reputed researcher center that permitted to accomplish all my projects (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=kkadvcwAAAAJ). Most of my theme were based on images analysis of brain tissue. I am now following a DATA/AI school for 19 months (https://simplon.co/formation/ecole-ia-microsoft/23) with the association called Simplon, in partnership with Microsoft and the company OnePoint (https://www.groupeonepoint.com/en) that allow me to practice within an internship. This school will permit to acquire skills in machine and deep learning and artificial intelligence. My final objective is to apply the AI in the healthcare sector. These technologies have the potential to transform many aspects of patient care, as well as administrative processes within provider, payer, and pharmaceutical organizations. I would like to use RMI images of healthy brain and with pathologies to apply deep learning techniques to help clinicians to have a faster response in order the accelerate the treatment process. The most complex forms of machine learning involve deep learning, or neural network models with many levels of features or variables that predict outcomes. To obtain my certification as a Data Scientist I need to present a final project where I show my skills in understanding the big data and AI world. That is why I need images already labeled to apply a prediction method of images analysis (CNN or RNN method). The project will not be use for any publications or production, it will just allow me to achieve the diploma of Data Scientist. Thank you for your attention. Sincerely,
Additional Investigators
