2020 was the year like no other. Everyone can agree with that. The pandemic changed our lives a lot – the pace of digitalization has gone from tortoise to a Space-X rocket!

For me, this year has also changed a lot of things. I’ve moved into new field of medical signal analysis using ML. I realized that my skillset can be used to help people. Maybe not the ones that were hit by the pandemic, but still people who need our help.

Together with a team of great specialists from the Sahlgrenska university hospital, we managed to create a set-up of collecting data in the operation room, tagging them and then, finally using ML.

In the last three months, we managed to move from 0 to having three articles in the making, collecting data from several patients, fantastic accuracy and a great deal of fun.

I’ve reflected upon this project and it’s probably the project where I had the most fun during 2020. It’s a completely new set-up, great team, extreme energy in the work and a great deal of meaning behind it.

The project was partially sponsored by Chalmers CHAIR initiative. Thank you!
