Condition monitoring of premature babies in intensive care
can be carried out using a Factorial Switching Linear Dynamical System (FSLDS) . A crucial part of training the FSLDS is the manual calibration stage, where an interval of normality must be identified for each baby that is monitored. In this paper we replace this manual step by using a classifier to predict whether an interval is normal or not. We show that the monitoring results obtained using automated calibration are almost as good as those using manual calibration.
