A multilayer LSTM auto-encoder for fetal ECG anomaly detection


The paper introduces a multilayer long short-term memory (LSTM) based auto-encoder network to spot abnormalities in fetal ECG. The LSTM network was used to detect patterns in the time series, reconstruct errors and classify a given segment as an anomaly or not. The proposed anomaly detection method provides a filtering procedure able to reproduce ECG variability based on the semi-supervised paradigm. Experiments show that the proposed method can learn better features than the traditional approach without any prior knowledge and subject to proper signal identification can facilitate the analysis of fetal ECG signals in daily life.
