Joanna Kossakowska one of the researcher at IMaR is currently researching methods for improving efficiency of blood collection in Ireland. The main goal of the study is to examine currently available techniques for intelligent profiling of blood donors. This involves examination and identification of most suitable data mining techniques and machine learning algorithms which will be applied on individuals’ historical data in order to predict their future blood donation patterns. This research can be run thanks to the support and collaboration from Irish Blood Transfusion Services. However, further help from volunteers is needed, as a special survey has been developed to provide data for the research.
