In recent years, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data have grown at an exponential pace.
When coupled with the rise of wearable devices, the market is now ripe for use of miniature, wearable biosensors to personalize eHealth and mHealth services. These types of services will significantly increase availability and accessibility of health information, and allow patients to personalize and tailor how their health is managed and maintained. This innovation is not without its drawbacks. Many challenges related to consistency, safety, and reliability remain. In order to succeed in this technology, multidisciplinary research is needed, in addition to collaboration between academia and industry. This workshop will bring researchers and industrial partners together to examine the synergies of signal, data, and information processing.
Together, they will make important strides in the smart healthcare sector and work toward making eHealth accessible for all.
