My project drew much more attention than I expected. Thanks to everyone who is following PMA or gave it a skull. Also a big "Thank you" for awarding it with a prize in "Aging in Place" category. I can't express how encouraging and motivating it is for me.
Unfortunately, due to lack of time, not much was done to bring it closer to the reality since last update. My Final Exams start in two weeks and I'm very busy studying, filing papers and applications, looking for scholarships and accommodation, etc. Don't worry though. Some research is still being done. I've found terabytes of EEG data and information about algorithms which can predict epileptic seizures with about 86% accuracy. I'm hoping to incorporate them into my project.
Sorry for a delay and thanks in advance for understanding.

Making a list of chronic diseases which manifest randomly (ex. epilepsy) and finding ways to predict attacks.
Atrial fibrillation as an example
[ From wikipedia ]
Atrial fibrillation (AF or A-fib) is an abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating. Often it starts as brief periods of abnormal beating which become longer and possibly constant over time. Most episodes have no symptoms. Occasionally there may be heart palpitations, fainting, shortness of breath, or chest pain. The disease increases the risk of heart failure, dementia, and stroke. In atrial fibrillation the P waves, which represent depolarization of the top of the heart, are absent.
