Our partners from the Information Technologies Institute of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH) and the medical school of the Aristotle University (AUTH-MED), both based in Thessaloniki, Greece will participate in this cutting-edge international conference. They will present a poster on March 29, 2019 on the developed selfie-photo analysis for detecting hypomimia symptoms in early stage Parkinson’s disease.
Hypomimia, i.e. reduction in the expressiveness of the face, is a cardinal sign of Parkinson’s Disease, often present at its early stages. The selfie analysis module translates facial expression features into an index reflecting the severity of PD hypomimia symptoms that affect the variability of patients’ facial expressions.
