       abstract = {The gold standard to diagnose sleep disorders is called polysomnography (PSG). A PSG con-
sists in sleeping one or several nights, at a hospital or a sleep center, while wearing different
sensors continuously measuring various temporal data (e.g. electroencephalograms, elec-
trocardiograms, electromiograms, oxymetry, respiration rate, etc.). These data are then used
by an expert to annotate the PSG (hypnograph) into the differente sleep phases (paradoxal
summation, light, moderate and deep sleep). The hypnograph is then used for sleep disorder
The manual annotation process is affected by human limitations: it is time consuming, tedious,
not reliable, sensitive to the setup of the different clinics, and to motion noise. Indeed, each
sleep center defined his own setup for the PSG. Moreover, it happens that one data is lost due
to a motion of the patient during the night (noisy data). Regarding the reliability different
studies have shown that for the same PSG two experts may annotated differently.
The aim of this work is to investigate the possibility to automate the classification of PSG
into the different sleep phases using machine learning. The main concern will focus on the
capacity of such algorithms to be faster, and more reliable than manual scoring. To perform
this study, two follow-up questions will gravitate around the main scientific question. We
will focus on models which are robust to the setup of different clinics, noise and are fair to
different populations. One of the steps of our work is therefore to analyse the ability of an
automated classifier to manage data coming from different sleep centers.
We scoped this study to stateless models that do not take into account temporal context. We
investigated both hand-crafted and learnable feature extractors. In terms of intra-database
performance, our best model was the CNN Chambon model proposed by Chambon et al. in
their paper [1]. However, when evaluating generalization across different setups, the random
forest model with manually chosen features described in the same paper [1] emerged as the
best model.},
