The AI that will help you sleep


About the research

Do you ever wake up feeling like you have been run over by a truck? You are not alone. As many as 1 in 5 adults suffer from a sleep disorder, ranging from sleep apnoea to insomnia. With a compact, wearable device and AI, Elisabeth Heremans (KU Leuven - FWO) wants to analyse sleep problems in patients from the comfort of their own bed, instead of having them spend the night in a sleep clinic attached to a bunch of wires.

Elisabeth Heremans studied Engineering Science at KU Leuven, focusing on biomedical engineering and computer science. Fascinated by the link between neuroscience and engineering, she decided to use her engineering background to research the brain. In her PhD research, she designs AI to understand sleep and its relation to other neurological diseases, such as epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease.
