UST-FMS goes for gold in the 2018 Medicine Advocacy Week

UST-FMS goes for gold in the 2018 Medicine Advocacy Week

The UST Medicine Student Council (UST MSC), in cooperation with the UST Medicine administration and the different student organizations of the Faculty, spearheaded the Faculty’s annual Medicine Advocacy Week entitled “Oro Del Mundo” from February 19 to 23, 2018 at the St. Martin de Porres Building.

The week started off on a high note with a back-to-back championship by the UST Medicine Glee Club and the UST Terpsichorean Circle in the 2018 MedGroove MedRhythmia, an annual inter-medical school chorale and dance competition organized by the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges – Student Network (APMC-SN) last February 18, 2018 at the Henry Lee Irwin Theater, Ateneo de Manila University.

An opening ceremony was held at the Medicine Auditorium on the morning of February 19, 2018. The main beneficiary of the Medicine Advocacy Week, a nonprofit youth organization called Cancervants PH which served to bring hope and medical assistance to pediatric cancer patients, was introduced to the UST Med community by its founder Ms. Mots Venturina. The special guest speaker Mr. TJ Manotoc of ABS-CBN News talked about the realities of living with mental illness and how one could seek help. The UST Medicine Glee Club also performed their winning MedRhythmia contest piece “Better World”. The opening ceremony ended with an address from Dr. Ma. Lourdes D. Maglinao, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, as well as a ceremonial ribbon-cutting to formally open the Medicine Advocacy Week. A Eucharistic celebration headed by the Faculty Regent Rev. Fr. Angel A. Aparicio, OP was held after the opening program.

A week-long food fair was also organized by the UST MSC, inviting various food concessionaires to set up shop in front of the St. Martin de Porres Building. Free ice cream sponsored by Magnolia Philippines – San Miguel Foundation was also given away to medical students at the food fair.

St. Martin’s Cup, an Amazing Race-inspired obstacle course competition sponsored by Sip Purified Water, was held on the afternoon of February 19, 2018 at the UST campus grounds. Students from the various year levels represented their sections in a race designed to test medical wits and agility. Winners received trophies and gift certificates from Jollibee.

The Thomasian Medicine Advocates (TMA) 2018, a pageant competition for UST medical students, was held on the night of February 19, 2018 at the Medicine Auditorium. The pageant winners for this year’s TMA were Francis Fuller of 3B and Frances Paglinawan of 3D, and both will be competing to represent UST-FMS in the upcoming Thomasian Youth Ambassador and Ambassadress.

A blood drive entitled “Juan Life Juan Blood”, for the benefit of the Philippine Blood Center of the Department of Health, was held on the second day of the Advocacy Week (February 20, 2018) at the UST Medicine Museum.

Fantasia: Naturevolution 2018, a student pageant advocating the use of recycled materials and concern for the environment, organized by the UST Medical Missions Incorporated – Student Group (UST MMI) and the UST Medicine Glee Club, was held on the night of February 21, 2018 at the Medicine Auditorium. The pageant winners for Naturevolution 2018 were Iñigo Yutangco and Patricia Santos, both from 3D.

The 2018 Medicine Student Awards, organized by the UST MSC in cooperation with the various academic departments of the Faculty, was held on February 22, 2018 at the Continuing Medical Education (CME) Auditorium. This awarding ceremony served to recognize last year’s academic achievers excelling in the different subjects in the medical curriculum, the top ten students per batch, and the official student representatives of UST-FMS in various international and local academic competitions. Also recognized were the departments of the year and the outstanding faculty and support staff.

Gold Rush: the UST Medicine Variety Show was held on the night of February 22, 2018 at the Medicine Auditorium, featuring performances from the UST Terpsichorean Circle and the popular local bands The Ransom Collective and Ben&Ben.

To cap off the Medicine Advocacy Week, the 32nd Annual Freshman Night was held on February 23, 2018, at the UST Medicine Auditorium, which celebrated the various talents of UST-FMS Batch 2021 in band performance, dancing, and acting. The overall champion for the Freshman Night was Section 1D.

IICS students, faculty present papers in 3rd int’l conference on computer and communication systems

IICS students, faculty present papers in 3rd int’l conference on computer and communication systems

BS Computer Science students from the Institute of Information and Computing Sciences presented research papers in the 3rd International Conference on Computer and Communication Systems, held in the Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan last April 27-30, 2018.

The paper “NH093: Prediction and Visualization of the Disaster Risks in the Philippines using Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT), Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA), Artificial Neural Network (ANN)” by Ms. Donata D. Acula (adviser), Gillian Lindsay V. Alquisola, Daniel Jose A. Coronel, Bryan Matthew F. Reolope, and Julia Nicole A. Roque won the “Best Paper Presentation” award under the category Neural Network and Cloud Computing.

According to the submitted abstract, “this study is all about predicting and visualizing the disaster risks in the Philippines brought by tropical cyclones. According to UNICEF Philippines (2017), the Philippines is highly exposed to natural hazards because it lies along the Pacific Typhoon Belt compounded by uncontrolled settlement in hazard-prone areas, high poverty rate, and failure to implement building codes and construction standards. The number of casualties resulting from these incidents can be reduced if the possible occurrence of risk can be foreseen which can help the community have awareness and form recommendations ahead. The researchers of this study

improved the results of Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) and Artificial Neural Network (ANN) by using a de-noising model of Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT), in predicting the disaster risk levels of the Philippine provinces in terms of casualties, damaged houses, and damaged properties. Based on the result of the study, the best model for casualty, damaged houses, and damaged properties is the DWT-ARIMA-ANN model.”

Meanwhile, two more research papers also advised by Asst. Prof. Acula were presented. The first was entitled “Prediction and Visualization of Electricity Consumption in the Philippines Using Artificial Neural Networks, Particle Swarm Optimization, and Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average.” This paper was written by Nicole Anne C. Atienza, Janica Arielle D.S. Angeles, Jave Renzo Augustine T. Jao, and Ernersto Lance T. Singzon, Jr.

The paper’s abstract read:

“Electricity is vital in the development of a country like the Philippines. The researchers of the study developed a long-term prediction model to predict and visualize the

regional electricity consumption in the Philippines through implementing Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) instead of Backpropagation (BP) to train the Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) and implementing Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) to forecast future predictors. The average prediction accuracy of BP-ANN is 85.95% while the average prediction accuracy of PSO-ANN is 92.40%. Moreover, the average accuracy of PSO-ANN and ARIMA is 96.05%. The results indicated that PSO-ANN is a better prediction model than BP-ANN and that ARIMA performed well in forecasting the future predictors. The study can be of great help to improve the electricity allocation in the Philippines.”

Finally, the paper entitled “Implementing Fact-Checking in Journalistic Articles Shared on Social Media in the Philippines Using Knowledge Graphs” was presented by Louise Aster C. Oblan, Tracy B. Pedroso, Katrine Jee V. RIosa, and Michelle Arianne R. Tolibas.

The paper’s abstract read:

In the technology age, articles with fraudulent content are rampant, especially articles shared on social media. Misinformation could just be an inaccuracy at its best, or it could lead to normalizing false information at worst. To aid the predicament, the researchers created a system that will “fact check” suspicious articles against those articles that have been deemed credible, reliable, and more accurate, in order to help fight deceiving content that may be detrimental to society. The journal regarding computational fact checking that was published by Ciampaglia, et. al. (2015) from the Indiana University in the USA entitled Computational Fact Checking from Knowledge Networks, was used as the basis and inspiration for this thesis. The researchers made use of the undirected graph (UG) together with a part-of-speech (POS) tagging algorithm to create a knowledge graph (KG) that would serve as the center of the system. Five different POS tagging algorithms were paired with the UG to assess which combination would yield the best results, these are Conditional Random Fields, Logistic Regression, a Hybrid of CRF and LR, Random Forests, and K-Nearest Neighbors. Random Forests and K-Nearest Neighbors were classification algorithms used in Ciampaglia’s study. It was concluded that among the 5 pairs of UG and POS Tagging algorithms, the Hybrid of CRF and LR used as a POS tagger, together with the UG, created the most efficient KG.

The conference proceedings will be published in IEEE and will be indexed in IE Compendia and Scopus.
