ECG classification from single-lead segments using Deep Convolutional Neural Networks and Feature-Based Approaches
Our entry for the Computing in Cardiology Challenge 2017: Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Classification from a short single lead Electrocardiogram (ECG) recording

This repository contains our solution  to the Physionet Challenge 2017 presented at the Computing in Cardiology conference 2017. As part of the Challenge, based on short single-lead ECG segments with 10-60 seconds duration, the classifier should output one of the following classes:
|N||normal sinus rhythm|
|A||atrial fibrillation (AF)|
|O||other cardiac rhythms|
Two methodologies are proposed and described in distict forlder within this repo:
- Classic feature-based MATLAB approach (
- Deep Convolutional Network Approach in Python (
