Prof. Wei Chen
Topic: Intelligent Wellness Sensing
Abstract:Many challenges exist in health monitoring and management, such as continuous, accurate, and comfortable monitoring of multi-parameters, early detection and warning of diseases, as well as the interaction with environments. The challenges in healthcare raise health risks and imposes significant economic and social burden. Thus, seeking for the innovative solutions and new technologies to address these issues is very important. The development of modern sensors, Internet of Things, advanced materials, machine learning and data fusion technology has inspired the innovation on intelligent designs for healthcare. 
In this talk, advanced flexible sensor networks and their application for smart health are presented. The novel Health IoT platforms seamlessly integrate smart sensing technologies, data fusion techniques, advanced materials, and clinical practice. Physiological signs, behaviors and environmental information can be obtained effectively. By jointly analyzing physiological behavior parameters with environmental interaction information and using data fusion technology, the health-related activities can be identified. With Intelligent Wellness Sensing, personal health monitoring and forecasting will be provided assisting to develop personal healthcare plan, and guide people towards a healthier lifestyle. The multi-disciplinary research on Internet of Things, machine learning, smart sensing system and biomedical signal processing will bring new development for improving the quality of life for people ranging from babies to aging population during their everyday life, and have long term social impact. Example projects in the areas of sleep monitoring, brain signal analysis, neonatal monitoring, and activity monitoring will be introduced.
