Deep Learning Based Proarrhythmia Analysis Using Field Potentials Recorded from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells Derived Cardiomyocytes
       Abstract: An early characterization of drug-induced cardiotoxicity may be possible by combining comprehensive in vitro proarrhythmia assay and deep learning techniques. We aimed to develop a method to automatically detect irregular beating rhythm of field potentials recorded from human pluripotent stem... Read more
