Seminar - "Personalized Mobile Health Monitoring System using Wearable Biosensors"

Speaker:   MD Shaad Mahmud, Assisant Professor of Electrical and Computer

Engineering from the University of New Hampshire

Title:   "Personalized Mobile Health Monitoring System using Wearable




The advancement in wireless body sensor network and micro fabrication techniques have created a great opportunity for using miniaturized wireless microelectronic devices in a variety of health and life science applications. With big data and machine learning exponential growth in healthcare and clinical treatments, accurate analysis of clinical data helps in early disease detection, patient care, and community services. However, the analysis of prediction or detection accuracy is reduced when the quality of the data acquisition is compromised, especially for real-time solutions. In this presentation, I will introduce (a) IoT based wearable biosensor for personalized mobile health; (b) reliable and secure data communication; and (c) early disease detection using machine learning.
