Proposed Analysis: Classification Model for the Identification of Alzheimer’s Stage from MRI Images with a Carer Recommendation System. I plan to develop a convolutional neural network which can classify the stage of Alzheimer's disease from MRI images and then provide support recommendations (risk of types of cognitive tasks which may suffer as time progresses) for carers and patients. For example, an MRI image could be submitted to the system and it would be able to classify the stage of Alzheimers from a 5-stage model and then predict which cognitive tasks may be at risk - signalling this to the patient and carer meaning they can proactively prepare and get the correct support in place.
