Self-supervised representation learning from 12-lead ECG data

03/23/2021 ∙ by Temesgen Mehari, et al. ∙ 0

We put forward a comprehensive assessment of self-supervised representation learning from short segments of clinical 12-lead electrocardiography (ECG) data. To this end, we explore adaptations of state-of-the-art self-supervised learning algorithms from computer vision (SimCLR, BYOL, SwAV) and speech (CPC). In a first step, we learn contrastive representations and evaluate their quality based on linear evaluation performance on a downstream classification task. For the best-performing method, CPC, we find linear evaluation performances only 0.8 analyze the impact of self-supervised pretraining on finetuned ECG classifiers as compared to purely supervised performance and find improvements in downstream performance of more than 1 increased robustness against physiological noise. All experiments are carried out exclusively on publicly available datasets, the to-date largest collection used for self-supervised representation learning from ECG data, to foster reproducible research in the field of ECG representation learning.
