Deep learning-based human-centric biomedical diagnosis: Challenges and Perspectives

Many biomedical practices can be regarded as decision-making. Nowadays, computers have evolved as crucial components in medical decision-making. Still, the general perception of “computers in biomedicine” is often only of computer applications that assist physicians in diagnosing illnesses. The role of the human is weakened. To integrate computers more closely into human experts in the biomedical fields, researchers and practitioners rely on human-centric biomedical diagnosis(HCBD) and its underlying technologies in biomedicine.

The imaging data can be obtained from multiple imaging modalities, such as Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance (MR) Imaging, Ultrasound, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI), EE/MEG, Optical Microscopy and Tomography, Photoacoustic Tomography, Electron Tomography, and Atomic Force Microscopy, etc. Analysis of such modalities has been traditionally conducted with classical statistics, either hypothesis testing or Bayesian inference, relying on frequently violated assumptions. One promising solution is machine learning within knowledge-based systems, where high-dimensional relationships between datasets are empirically established.

This special issue aims to report the newest developments of deep learning-based HCBD in methodologies and applications of the biomedical fields. For example, the explanations for black-box predictions with methods to extract HCBD in brain diseases. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Theory, models, frameworks, and tools of HCBD

Trustworthy HCBD models

HCBD-enabled natural language processing and understanding

Deep learning-based HCBD models

Security and privacy related HCBD systems

HCBD in robotics, social science, and healthcare

Big data in HCBD systems and their applications

HCBD -based question answering systems and recommendation systems

Attention mechanism and explainability in HCBD models

Smart sensor technologies of HCBD systems

HCBD for human-machine interaction and collaborations

HCBD with autonomous deep learning, automated reasoning, and reinforcement learning

Deep graph networks for HCBD
