Stefan Pantazi is a medical doctor trained in General Medicine. His keen interest in computing led him to Medical Informatics. In his doctoral dissertation "A Deterministic Dynamic Associative Memory (DDAM) Model for Concept Space Representation," he explored research topics in the areas of knowledge discovery and representation, with relevance to Case-Based Reasoning, Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval.
Dr. Pantazi's interest in uncovering fundamental aspects of Medical Informatics and medical decision-making led to a strong emphasis on computational models of information processing. This has also resulted in the creation of the notions of "knowledge spectrum" and of "usability axiom of medical information systems," two novel concepts, developed, refined and published in peer-reviewed journals. Both these concepts helped convey fundamental aspects of Medical Informatics to students and to other audiences and allowed for the proposal of a new definition of Medical Informatics as "context-dependent processing of medical information," a view fundamentally linked to such research areas as Case Based Reasoning, Information Retrieval and Algorithmic Information Theory.
Dr. Pantazi's teaching approaches have very strong applied components that complement and support understanding of theoretical concepts. In his view, this approach to teaching is difficult to separate from the kind of applied reasearch aimed at the exploration of new technologies and their applications to healthcare problems. A relevant example in this regard is his development of a simple prototype, The Health Monitoring Station, that helps demonstrating typical properties of Health Informatics applications to non-technical audiences.
