Designing Causal Models of Blinding Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) with Evolutionary Computation

Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) is a serious disease in preterm-born babies that often leads to blindness.  Given several key parameters that have been shown to be helpful in predicting ROP (along with data from several thousand patients), evolutionary computation will be used to design quantitative models of the interactions of these parameters to thereby enhance the predictive power of these parameters.  This work is in cooperation with opthamologists at St. Olav's hospital and is more fully described here:
