商品描述

Genetic and Evolutionary Computation: Medical Applications provides an overview of the range of GEC techniques being applied to medicine and healthcare in a context that is relevant not only for existing GEC practitioners but also those from other disciplines, particularly health professionals. There is rapidly increasing interest in applying evolutionary computation to problems in medicine, but to date no text that introduces evolutionary computation in a medical context. By explaining the basic introductory theory, typical application areas and detailed implementation in one coherent volume, this book will appeal to a wide audience from software developers to medical scientists.

Centred around a set of nine case studies on the application of GEC to different areas of medicine, the book offers an overview of applications of GEC to medicine, describes applications in which GEC is used to analyse medical images and data sets, derive advanced models, and suggest diagnoses and treatments, finally providing hints about possible future advancements of genetic and evolutionary computation in medicine.

  • Explores the rapidly growing area of genetic and evolutionary computation in context of its viable and exciting payoffs in the field of medical applications.
  • Explains the underlying theory, typical applications and detailed implementation.
  • Includes general sections about the applications of GEC to medicine and their expected future developments, as well as specific sections on applications of GEC to medical imaging, analysis of medical data sets, advanced modelling, diagnosis and treatment.
  • Features a wide range of tables, illustrations diagrams and photographs.

商品描述(中文翻譯)

《遺傳和進化計算:醫學應用》提供了一個概述遺傳和進化計算(GEC)技術在醫學和醫療領域應用的範圍,這對於現有的GEC從業人員以及其他學科,特別是醫療專業人員來說都是相關的。在將進化計算應用於醫學問題方面,越來越多的人表現出興趣,但迄今為止還沒有一本介紹進化計算在醫學背景下的書籍。通過在一本連貫的書中解釋基本的入門理論、典型的應用領域和詳細的實施,本書將吸引從軟件開發人員到醫學科學家的廣泛讀者群。

本書圍繞著九個案例研究,介紹了GEC在醫學不同領域的應用,提供了GEC在醫學中的應用概述,描述了GEC用於分析醫學影像和數據集、推導高級模型以及提出診斷和治療的應用,最後提供了關於遺傳和進化計算在醫學中可能的未來發展的提示。

本書的特點包括:
- 探索遺傳和進化計算在醫學應用領域的快速增長,並介紹其在該領域中的可行和令人興奮的回報。
- 解釋了基本的理論、典型的應用和詳細的實施。
- 包括關於GEC在醫學中應用及其預期未來發展的一般部分,以及關於GEC應用於醫學影像、醫學數據集分析、高級建模、診斷和治療的具體部分。
- 提供了各種表格、插圖、圖表和照片。
